Here I Am.

yesman-teaser-poster-full Too much of what I do is motivated by guilt. I need to concentrate on living a pro-active, rather than a reactive life. A life where I say “I intend to..” rather than “I should do..”. A life where I look forward to the challenges, rather than trying to make excuses as to why I don’t want to be involved.

I want to cultivate in me, and around me, a “Yes!” culture.

Not a yes culture that will make me overwhelmed, or burned out, just one that is real, optimistic, honest, forward looking, and not lazy.

A comrade of mine has inherited a signature-book-of-sorts that page-by-page, one-by-one has been signed in succession by all of the General’s of The Salvation Army, starting with General William Booth himself. This is what General Carpenter had to say…

“The Secret of the Victorious life will be found in saying “Yes” to God, and to keep on saying it.” – Melbourne, 20/6/1945

And, because Officership is at the beginning and end of most of my daily thoughts; an exhortation, before I leave…

“This little book/[blog] contains the experience of one who heard God’s call to become an Officer, and who answered it.

More than 13,000 men and women all over the world have chosen to obey His voice and give themselves up to lives of self-denying toil for the salvation of the world. Have you ever stopped to ask yourself whether God does not require you to give Him your life? Will you ask yourself that question today?

When you have thought and prayed about it, speak to the Officer of your Corps or write to your Candidates Secretary.” A School of Prophets, by ‘One of the Scholars’ The Salvation Army Book Department, 1901

Quote/s of the Day (today, originating from one family unit);

“Incarnation without transformation is not the kingdom of God, it’s simply assimilation.”Capt. Danielle Strickland.

“Enjoy the Lord today. Take a step back and appreciate the fact that the Creator of the universe died for you, loves your socks off, and dreams about you. Then crawl into His presence and soak it all up – fear/reverence, safety, acceptance, love, mercy, grace…”Capt. Stephen Court

We shall win.

"The decree has gone forth that the kingdoms of this world shall become the kingdoms of our Lord and of His Christ and that He shall reign whose right it is from the River to the ends of the earth. We shall win. It is only a question of time. I believe that this Movement shall inaugurate the final conquest of our Lord Jesus Christ."
- General Catherine Booth
