I want to start something new called The Collection. This will be a journal entry of some of the quotes, tweets and statuses that have wrecked my over the past month. I will try to jot them down and let you in on the insight God is speaking to me. Some will be from well-known people, some are friends of mine but ALL are worthy of mentioning and deeper soul-processing.
“Life is all about Jesus and his love for you. Can you think of anything more amazing than that?” – @JudahSmith
Jesus is the centrality of all of life. You and I are the focus of his affection. NOTHING is more crucial and critical in all of life. The thoughts, joy and love he has for us is greater than anything we could ever imagine.
“Make room for God in your life… He’s about to do something greater than you can imagine and better than you deserve.” – @chadcveach
This ministered to me about carving out “God space” in my life so that God can invade. The things he wants to do is great than I can ever dream and better than what I needed. He is up to something big
“Suffering is not an obstacle to you being used by God. It is an opportunity to be used like never before.” – @LeviLusko
As if to say, enjoy the suffering Corey, its a part of the process of utilization.
“We have been called by an eternal God to do something that will outlast us.” @RealJohnGray
The things God wants to do in and through me will outlast me. So its not just momentary its everlasting.
“Failure to honor those that have poured into you neglects the seed. Neglected seed negates harvest.” –@pastorjohnathan
Deep. If I ever fail to honor people who have invested in me, I have essentially neglected the harvest the Lord was trying to spring up. This is why we have to cherish every seed that is planted in us so that we can cherish the harvest when it manifests. ***May need a separate journal on this one alone
“You can’t choose your storm but you can choose your spirit.” – @richwilkersonjr
While the storms of life are not by choice… my stance, attitude and spirit are. How I choose to endure the storm is solely in my hands. Will I leverage the storm for my advantage.
“THE CHURCH IS NOT A POLITICAL MOVEMENT, IT IS A KINGDOM MOVEMENT. WHICH IS MUCH BIGGER, AND MUCH MORE COMPREHENSIVE.” – @grantpankratz
As a church, we are about God’s Kingdom and not the political systems of this world. Our heartbeat and movement is of kingdom authority.
“God isn’t building his kingdom, he’s building his church. And the church is expanding his kingdom!” – @JasonDaughdrill
The mission of the church is to expand the Kingdom of God. God’s Kingdom is already built, and is now being enlarged by the church that he is building. Remain faithful to the Master Architect in the process of construction.
“Comparison is the Thief of Joy” – @robertmadu
Stop the games of comparison… its a thief and robber of your joy. Joy in who I am and what I am doing dispels comparison.

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!
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!
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!
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.”
