Lion Chaser Manifesto

I really needed to read this again. It has been some time since I have and during this week it hits me just right.

As taken from the book, “In a Pit With A Lion On A Snowy Day”, by Mark Batterson, here is the Lion Chaser Manifesto.

FYI...If you really want to be challenged by a book to overcome obstacles...click the picture and order this one from Amazon...It will rock your world. In fact I think I'm going to add it to my reads this week.

Quit living as if the purpose of life is to arrive safely at death. Set God-sized goals. Pursue God-ordained passions. Go after a dream that is destined to fail without divine intervention. Keep asking questions. Keep making mistakes. Keep seeking God. Stop pointing out problems and become part of the solution. Stop repeating the past and start creating the future. Stop playing it safe and start taking risks. Expand your horizons. Accumulate experiences. Enjoy the journey. Find every excuse you can to celebrate everything you can. Live like today is the first day and last day of your life. Don't let what's wrong with you keep you from worshiping what's right with God. Burn sinful bridges. Blaze a new trail. Criticize by creating. Worry less about what people think and more about what God thinks. Don't try to be who you're not. Be yourself. Laugh at yourself. Quit holding out. Quit holding back. Quit running away.

Chase the lion.
