What Side Of The White Line Are You Standing On?

It makes all the difference in the world.

Today was Opening Day for the local youth soccer league. Proudly, I watched as my six-year-old daughter and her team took to the field. No one was keeping score, and it looked like no one knew exactly what they were doing, either. But it didn’t matter. They came to play, and that’s exactly what they did.

Kids at play always have lessons we adults always need to be reminded of. Today, for me the lesson was a reminder about showing up, stepping over the white line and entering the arena. Even if we haven’t yet gotten everything all figured out.

We all have hopes and dreams within us, many which will never be given the chance to come true, simply because we are standing on the wrong side of the white line, the white line which separates the players from the spectators. Our hopes and dreams require us to cross over the line; our dreams will never be realized simply watching others acheive theirs.

Your life is God’s dream come true, and God’s greatest hope is the dreams He’s placed within you are fully realized and shared with the world.

So, what side of the white line are you standing on?

It’s a great day to be you!

There Are No Little Things

I’ve been told it’s the little things that matter most in life.

May I disagree?

In life there are no little things. And there are no big things, either.

Life is simply a collection of moments, and within these precious moments lies the very essence of life itself. When we give up our tendency to quantify the significance of particular moments, we are finally free to appreciate the magnificence of every moment.

Ours is a life of abundant blessings, perhaps some yet undiscovered, but fully alive in the moments which make up the only life we’ll ever know.

All we need to do is see them for what they really are.

It’s a great day to be you!

The Parable of Jesus, the Hockey Game, and the Ice Cold Beer

Peter was watching a hockey game with Jesus. When there was a break in the action, Peter turned to Jesus and asked him to get him a beer from the fridge. Jesus rose from the sofa and headed to kitchen. On his way he stopped, turned to look at Peter, shook His head slowly from side to side, then proceeded into the kitchen. Shortly after, Jesus returned to the sofa, empty handed, sat down and began to watch the hockey game.

Perplexed, Peter turned to Jesus and said “where’s my beer?”, to which Jesus said “Son, I am always here for you, but sometimes life is really Read the rest of this entry »
