Pressing into Him

Thank you Chris for sharing this.

Chris Martin Writes

The last two or three weeks have been absolutely amazing.

Having learned that an intimate relationship with my Heavenly Father is paramount, I’ve continued meeting with Him in the secret place. There are no words available to me that can describe how awesome this communion has been. The one thing I can say is that He is so much more real to me now than ever before.

He’s been here all along, patiently waiting for me to see how screwed up my priorities have been over the years. When I finally came crawling back to Him on my knees, He didn’t respond like we would.

He didn’t say “Well, you have to prove yourself now. I need to know you are serious this time.”

He didn’t say “Well, it’s about time. I’ve been watching you mess everything up.”

He didn’t say “You need to get your act together before you…

The Prusuit of the Ball

Recently, I attended a baseball game. I had amazing seats…10 seats from 1st base. The weather was perfect for an evening game. As I settled into my seat along come two guys who set to the left of me. In about ten minutes, a group of three men and one woman set to the right of me. As the players were being announced, a guy on the right side group announced “I’m going to get me a baseball tonight.” I was like “wow”, He sure is confident. The game begins and along with some fly balls, pop ups and two home runs, no ball has come towards the direction of where I was seating. By the fifth inning, the score was tied and the opposing team was up at bat. The hitter hit the ball and it clearly was a pop up ball in foul territory. However, this one was different. This ball was headed in the direction where I was seated. All the men on the right and both men on my left were up with arms stretched waiting for the ball to descend downward. The guy in the group on the right side of me, the one who made the declaration, actually did catch the ball. However, the ball bounced out of his hand and onto the ground where it rolled under my feet to the guy on the left side of me. He scoops it up and gives his buddy a high five. The man on the right was hollering about how he had the ball in his hands and it bounced out. He was devastated. He was so mad with himself of how he had something that he coveted, and lost it within milliseconds. To further torture himself, the guy on the right, asked the guy on the left, he could take pictures of himself with the ball that he titled, “the ball that got away.” This lead me to an epiphany. How many times have we wanted something so bad and we almost had it, but for some reason, we never did get it or it was within our grasp and something happened which caused us not to get what we wanted? The guy on the left with the ball, after he caught it, took a picture of the ball and continued to enjoy the game. The guy on the right, after taking a photo of the ball he never did catch, he continued to talk about how he almost had the ball and it bounced out of his hand. My aha moment came to me. When you want something so bad it may come to you but you may not be ready for it. Its when you don’t “covet” something, it comes to you in a miraculous way. The attitude of the guy on my left versus the guy on my right were like night and day. The guy on the right came to get something and will leave with nothing. The guy on my left, came with no expectations, and left with something. Sometimes, we have to just let go and let things take its course. We cannot force it or try and will it if it is not meant to be for us.

3 Questions Leaders Should Ask Themselves

I recently came across an article regarding that being self-aware is a prerequisite for good leadership, writes John Baldoni, since only by acknowledging your limitations can you hope to inspire confidence or loyalty. To that end, he argues, a leader should ask himself what’s missing from his skill set, what other tasks he should add to his agenda, and — above all — whether he is genuinely able to take criticism from his workers. http://sbne.ws/r/3x0V
