I’m too old to pretend to like things that serve no eternal value or provide no righteous purpose. I’m tired of pretending to keep relationships going that should have ended a long time ago. I’m after authenticity now. Being fake is too much work. Having fake conservations about worthless things that serve no purpose is exhausting. I have no desire to pretend to be someone I’m not to impress people I don’t even know and those who definitely don’t know me. That’s draining. I’m not after public adoration or the fleeting praises of people. That, too, is taxing. I want what’s real—a real relationship with God, not a religious masquerade; real friendships; real business partnerships; etc. Life is too short to pretend. If it’s not real, I don’t want it and I’m not going to pretend like I have to have it. Let’s put away the pretending. It heals nothing.
My princess wanted to put on her princess dress for nap time. 🙌🏾😩😭😢 I never realized how much I could love someone else until I got married and had children. My heart is full. #imperfectfamilyman

The call to ministry isn't just a job or a Sunday routine.
It's a gift, privilege, and a delicate responsibility given by Christ to the chosen few among us and it must be handled with tremendous consideration. In order to effectively function within this calling, and to be efficient with utilizing your gifts, preparation is key!
In my newest book, WHEN GOD’S HAND IS ON YOU, I explain important concepts and reveal pragmatic lessons about ministry that will help you in identifying, understanding and walking out the call of God on your life.
You may order a copy of this book on www.corneliuslindsey.com. If you're an audible learner or you're always on the go, you may purchase the audiobook version on Audible.com. This book is also available for electronic readers on kindle, and iBooks. Make your purchase now!
You will ALWAYS be your greatest competition. A big part of training is internal—self-perception. The most muscular guy in the gym could see himself as the skinny guy he was prior to working out. The fittest woman could still see herself as that chubby girl who felt insecure in everything she put on. See, working on the outside is important, but what are you building within? Romans 12:2 encourages us to renew our minds; it’s IMPORTANT. No amount of hard work in the gym can erase how you perceive yourself from within. Change that and you’ll change your life! I’m on this journey with you! Leggo! ✊🏾💪🏾
We live in a society that glorifies dismissing, forgetting, and moving on from others—which are valid in some situations. However, we must judge ourselves righteously and ask if we’re just moving on from others because we’re too immature and insecure to ask for forgiveness and reconcile.
These verses are very important to our faith. Jesus makes it clear that our anger and resentment against our brothers and sisters shouldn’t be brought to the altar with our offerings. If so, we’re continuing the murderous tradition of Cain. His offering was rejected by God, and we can assume that it was because of the resentment and anger in his heart.
I know what it’s like to hold a grudge against someone, but it’s so exhausting! To block someone from your life because of petty disagreement is immature. It says that we’re not mature enough to converse about what hurt us, we’re too full of ourselves to understand that it’s okay to disagree, we’re too prideful to admit our wrongdoing, and we’re too apathetic to at least hear each other out. This is true amongst friends, family, and those we commune with daily; trolls—those who desire to just be argumentative—are playing the role of their father—the devil. Hence, why the verse speaks of “brothers” and “sisters.” This is the cornerstone of our faith, and it cannot be ignored in the name of “moving on.” In fact, those who assume they’re “moving on” are really moving backwards. The pain of losing the relationship—whether you want to admit it or not—is heavy and you’ll carry it for years to come until you lay it down with an offering of forgiveness to those you’ve offended and forgiving those who’ve offended you. Believe it or not, but there’s freedom in forgiveness! Whether or not the person accepts your apology isn’t your problem. And, remember that asking for forgiveness doesn’t mean you have to go back to the way things used to be; it means I’m willing to take ownership of my part in fixing the mess that I helped to create. It’s an act of humility and empathy.
Dare to forgive and ask for forgiveness today. When the Holy Spirit leads you, move on it! Let’s mature together.
