Mid-Summer Mind Dump

25 Jul , 2015

A lot has happened since I last gave you a mad dump.. So here we go: 
          PERSONAL LIFE

  1. Started a regular job (in January) working with my cousin. This has allowed me to stay financially healthy while doing Ministry. Also afforded me the opportunity to get my own car!!! 
  2. Have spent most of the last 10 months focused on me and Jesus.. The Lord has been redefining some key things in my life such as Hope, Faith, Surrender and Joy. Can not express in the right words how important this season has been to my life and ministry. Times just listening to podcasts, studying scripture and times of prayer/worship.
  3. For me community is everything… it keeps me out of my head (thinking negatively) and keeps me focus on what matters most – God’s people. “Community is only built when you intentional invest in others and have a give/take mentality.”

    MINISTRY LIFE

  4. Had some speaking engagements in February and May. Also did some traveling to TN and Michigan. I joined our Board of Advisors at my current church, Gateway Church in Suwanee GA. I absolutely love these people and call them family.
  5. Was offered a FT Student Pastor position at a church and I have accepted.. More info coming later next week, with an official announcement. I am cuckoo for cocoa puffs excited about this ministry and the opportunity to lead a movement of young people. 
  6. Lastly, I am working on my first book project. I am in the initial phase and process ideas/concept. More to come soon! i am really excited about t

Reflections & Introspection, Worship & Prayer

Breathe

27 Jun , 2015  

Had this song on repeat while walking.. Got me thinking how much I need the Lord to Breathe on the desires of my heart and promises over my life. I’m at the constant need of his tender breath freely blowing and whispering my name. Even our World needs his breath to fall afresh again!! I was thinking about Ezekiel 37 and Habakkuk 3:2. WE NEED REVIVAL!!! #BreathOfGod #Revival #Walking #TookALap #InWrathRememberMercy

Miraculous???

11 Feb , 2015  

I wonder if we miss the miraculous because we fail/unwilling to do the ridiculous.

Leadership, Reflections & Introspection, That'll Preach Sayings

8 THINGS THAT KILL US AS LEADERS

11 Feb , 2015  

chadveach:

1. YOU CAN’T TELL ME NOTHIN
“Pride is the only disease that makes everyone else sick besides the person that has it.”

2. SO INSECURRRR
I know a leader that used to walk into a room and say to himself “everyone here loves me and wants me here”……………… until he was convinced of it.

Sometimes you gotta convince yourself of the truth until you believe it!
#selftalk

3. UNRESOLVED ISSUES
“Sin won’t destroy your life… but silent sin will.”

If you keep sweeping stuff under the rug and not dealing with the issues of life, eventually that stuff will catch up with you.

These are the things that can slow you down in seasons when you should be running hard after what’s in your heart.

4. CAN’T CONTROL YO TONGUE
“Who can control the tongue?” – James

Nothing opens and closes doors for you like the words coming out of your mouth.

5. BELIEVE YOUR OWN HYPE
The worst leader is the one who’s more loyal to their gift than what they are a part of.

The leader who’s impressed with themselves is rarely impressed with others.

I’m always listening to the leader who raves about the gifting of others!

6. OPPORTUNISTIC
Don’t ever become the “looking for the next great opportunity” leader.

These leaders are always looking for the #landofopportunity because they’re convinced if they get there… then things will really take off. It never does 🙁

Stay faithful where you’re at and watch God blow you away.

7. CAN’T STIR IT UP
Don’t go stale.
Don’t go dull.
Don’t get routined.
Don’t fall asleep on the job.

Stir up the gift of God within you! Stir up your faith!

8. UNGRATEFUL
To say thank you is to admit that someone else provided this…

Can’t think of anything that pleases God more than the “attitude of gratitude.”
