Ever wonder why some people don’t waver in difficult times? Why they remain faithful although all hell is breaking… https://t.co/Ivf1gUpPQZ

And, never forget that VALUE DOESN’T BEG! When you know who you are (and WHOSE you are) you’ll never place yourself on a clearance rack for everyone to take advantage of.
Isn’t it cool how God allows us to look into the eyes of those who’ve gone before us? We can learn from them. They are the mirrors through which we see who we have the potential to become. We all started off as spectators. Now, we are a masterpiece comprised of all the images we’ve seen and believed throughout our lives. May the images before us be worthy of righteous emulation, and may we follow them as they follow Christ. #friends #brothers #mysons #myheart #proudfather #imperfectfamilyman
You’ll be fine. Just take your mind off Kiki and put it on Jesus—the author and finisher of our faith. 🙌🏾😎💯

My wife and I petitioned the Lord for what He desired for our children to become. It was apparent that our first child would lead; therefore, he’s our leader. That’s what we call him, and it’s how we refer to him. Specifically, we’re training him to be a servant & transformative leader. We speak to his strengths and teach him how to staff his weaknesses. We ask him problem-solving questions so he’s forced to think critically instead of just giving him answers. His training is for a purpose that far exceeds our limited intellect. “You will lead and empower them!” is what we tell him. He’s our leader. #kidleader #loganwilliamlindsey #loganwilliam
Our daughter is our powerhouse! She’s more than just a pretty face. The same way we don’t refer to our sons by their looks, we follow that with her. Instead, we focus on harnessing her fearlessness and ferocity. She’s no pushover, and she’ll stand toe-to-toe with anyone without backing down! She’s a beautiful mixture of intelligence, grace and power. That’s what we speak to in her. #kidpowerhouse #taylormilanlindsey #taylormilan
Then, there’s our Roman. God gifted us a warrior—a defender of truth! This means he must be a healthy mixture of skill, endurance and physical strength. Honor and compassion is what we will instill in him because a warrior must know what to fight and why he must fight! His cause is the Gospel; therefore, his fight isn’t for himself, but others. #kidwarrior #romanmateolindsey #romanmateo
We believe in purposeful parenting. We want to call our children by who they’re to become, not who they are. If we raise them now with this in mind then they won’t depart from it when they’re older. They may try to stray, but their foundation will always be strong!
There’s a thin line that separates what’s done in faith and what’s done in foolishness.
I love going to the gym. While there, I love to lift weights. Lifting max weight means that I’ve lifted as much weight as I can handle. I have faith when I go in that I can lift the appropriate amount of weight; however, it would be foolish of me to lift more than my max. Itwould be foolish to think that I can start lifting 100lbs dumbbell when I haven’t successfully lifted the 50lbs. I could want to do it or really think I could because I saw someone else doing it, but I could seriously injure myself or lose confidence in my ability to handle the weight. A loss of confidence or injury could set me back instead of pushing me forward.
This scenario could play out with our faith as well. I’d never instruct someone to do something that they’re just not ready to handle. No wise trainer (or preacher) would. •
Sometimes, we like to copy someone else’s story because we like their outcome, but we don’t realize that their walk of faith has been progressional. It didn’t happen overnight! They were faithful with little, and now you are a benefactor and onlooker of the “big” they’ve been rewarded. You could attempt to lift what they’ve been able to slowly handle, but that may not be beneficial to you. You could get injured or lose confidence.
If you’re attempting to do something you’re just not ready for, yield. Or, at least make sure you have a spotter (someone to advise you that what you’re attempting to lift is too much and/or help you just in case you’re not strong enough to carry what you’re attempting to lift). You might think that you’re ready, but seek wise counsel first. Be sure before setting out to start what you’re not strong enough to compete. Could you successfully lift the weight? Absolutely! I just want you to avoid injury, loss of confidence and/or embarrassment.
The answer to problems are usually trapped on the inside of the ones who are able to identify it. Why? Because most times your ability to identify something was trumped by the area of qualification or the expertise that sleeps within you and it’s only seeking to be awaken to solve a problem .
Although you may not be able to solve a huge portion of the problem, the portion that you are able to solve is enough. Your portion is still relevant to the process of trying to solve the larger portion of a problem. The little efforts that you invest to make your community better is making a difference.
You may consider feeding the homeless as a small part of trying to solve a larger problem - which is to advocate for the homeless in order to stop homelessness. But the beauty is that your small part matters and you're adding value to someone's life. Using your car to take the kids in your community to church may seem small to others, but don't quit! Don't pass the baton to somebody else. By taking the kids to church you're ensuring that they're off the streets.
Whatever ministry God has given you to solve, whether it's social issue, civil rights issue, educational issue, economic issue, family/marital issue, drug issue, or suicidal issue, please don't drop the baton. Don't pass the baton just because someone else seems more qualified, proficient or because they possess a lot of resources. Their resources were given to solve a different category of conflict.
Likewise you were given the resources to solve the level of conflict that you're convicted to solve. It's all tied together. And as a body, we all are working together according to our qualifications, proficiency and resources to solve a common problem. Once you keep running with your baton in hand, then you motivate others to join or to continue running the race.
If God called you to a cause, don't sweat not having all the resources in the beginning, God is standing in front of you. Step outside of your boat Peter and don't stop walking. Storms, hardships, doubt, and fear will come to distract you, but keep your eyes focus on the Savior, keep walking by faith. You are an answer!
