Daryl is a long-time friend. He is warrior. A fellow “8”. He is passionate and purposeful. He and his wife, Jo have lived a love-story with valleys and mountaintops . . . like all of us.
Daryl recently talked about his life the last few months . . . Daryl’s Story
I listened to this video clip from Waymaker Church’s Easter streamed service.
As you listen to these four short minutes, consider the following:
Perspective . . . Pivot . . . Pursue
All of us live seeing out existence from a chosen perspective. For some, it is from a viewpoint of “entitlement“, where I am owed something. For others, it is out of guilt . . . this is what I “deserve”. And, for some it’s “control” because I determine who I am and who I become. For me, I see a life that has a Master Creator Who loves me more than I could ever imagine and gives me the opportunity to do “more than I could ever ask or think” (Eph 3:20 NLT). I choose how I see things . . . my perspective.
There are times when life doesn’t go as planned. Relationships become hard. Work hits every roadblock. Life starts to drain, damage and destroy all that you have dreamed of. So many just sit and “pause”, while it may be better for us to “pivot”. It’s usually not getting “rid” of anything, as much as getting “right” with things. Alignment is the discipline of accomplishment. I choose to change directions . . . I pivot.
And, then I charge forward with new perspective . . . I pursue with purpose, passion and a plan.
It begins with which story I’m telling myself . . . I make a choice to choose.
