Sun Stand Still

I’m just getting started with Steven Furtick’s new book Sun Stand Still. I can already tell that it’s going to be life changing and keep thinking it's timing should be of no surprise. For the first time in my life, I’m dreaming an audacious dream. I have a plan and while I know it will take hard work and dedication and commitment to see it come to fruition, I,for the first time in my life have the desire. I will write a book and I am going to be a full time writer at some point in the not too distant future.

“If you’re not daring to believe God for the impossible, you’re sleeping through some of the best parts of your Christian life. . . If the size of your vision for your life isn’t intimidating to you, there’s a good chance it’s insulting to God.” – Steven Furtick

It is safe to say that I have been insulting God for years now. I was perfectly content with the status quo, never even contemplating stepping outside of the 4 walls of my “box”. But what I have found most amazing is that when you do bother to approach the walls and begin to attempt to climb over them is that the walls begin to crumble under the weight of your future, the life you haven’t been living. Even more amazing is that you discover your safety net that’s been below you the entire time is a bit like a trampoline; super fun to jump on while testing out it’s resilience and strength while discovering how much reciprocity you find each time you spring back onto the black canvas.

  1. Your dream will come true, making it a reality. Since we are both testing the waters and jumping around outside our boxes, it is very comforting to know that there are people who care and that the safety net is stronger than one could imagine. I've got your back.
