You don't have to find your calling; if you follow God, your calling will find you.
NOTHING can stop the purpose of God.
Faith is an expectation.
I don’t live by reason; I live by revelation.

One of my ministry values is to preach what I need. This weekend's message, "The Pressure to Perform", is an expression of a tension I wrestle with daily. I pray it reaches, strengthens, and comforts you.

Hello From The Other Side, 12/31/15 I'M OVER IT! 🎶: @elijah furtick
There’s Another Door!, 3/25/18 - The Lord said to Samuel, “How long will you mourn for Saul, since I have rejected him as king over Israel? Fill your horn with oil and be on your way; I am sending you to Jesse of Bethlehem. I have chosen one of his sons to be king.” 1 Samuel 16:1
Addiction: Under New Management, 7/24/11 - “Remember these things, Jacob, for you, Israel, are my servant. I have made you, you are my servant; Israel, I will not forget you. I have swept away your offenses like a cloud, your sins like the morning mist. Return to me, for I have redeemed you.” Isaiah 44:21-22
Making Friends With Frustration, 8/23/15 - But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me. 2 Corinthians 12:9 - 🎶: Lobes by @crsvmusic
Hey Furtick girls
Above all else, guard your heart, for everything you do flows from it. Proverbs 4:23 🎨: @sbrinkley79
See, our concept of failure flows from our definition of success. We all have invisible scorecards by which we judge our lives. These scorecards are comprised of columns like social standing, net worth, and relationship status, to name a few. But have you ever stopped to think about who even created your columns and categories to begin with? Have you been trying to win at a game God didn’t even draft you to play, and that you don’t even really enjoy? Have you subconsciously adopted a standard of success that doesn’t align with your true value system? Sometimes we’re so fixated on trying to prove something to people who aren’t even paying attention that we lose ourselves. Have you asked yourself lately: what am I trying to prove? To whom? For what? When you push yourself, is it because you want to live out your potential, or because you want to measure up to what you perceive to be the expectations of others – which may not even be real? We wind up exhausted when we spend so much energy chasing the illusion of success that we have nothing left to invest in the truly significant.
For what you have done I will always praise you in the presence of your faithful people. And I will hope in your name, for your name is good. Psalm 52:9
