I continue to Create . . .

Does an artist paint one picture and then stop? 
Does a musician write one song, plan one note and stop?  
No, they continually create new art and new music. 
Creation is an ongoing work of My Art and My Song.

I Continue to Create

That is why scientist seeking to understand the universe find that it continues to grow and expand. 

I continue to Create

All eternity will be endless new creations that are beyond the wildest dream of anyone.
Beauty will continue to  be created in ways that beauty has never been envisioned.
Only in eternity, my Bride will join me in this creation.
Together we will create. God and My Creation, together will create New Worlds, New Creations, New Beauty, for All Eternity. 

The Joy of Life is Creating New Life

Together, eternity is about God and My Bride Creating new life.
Forever and forever filling the vast, endless universe with beauty, with love, with life.

I can Only Imagine . . .

What is Your El Capitan?

National Geographic did a documentary film as Alex Honnold climbed El Capitan, the largest granite mountain-rock in the world at Yosemite National Park – free solo. That means with no ropes or protection of any kind.

As I listened to podcasts and read articles about this unbelievable human athletic achievement what stood out to me was Honnold’s account of his mindset. He is obsessive about his mental training, spending hours “perfecting, rehearsing, and “memorizing” exact sequences of hand and foot placements.

He said, “Physically (the climb) is not that hard to execute. It’s more you have to be in exactly the right (mental) place, so I was trying to create the right place.”

MindSet

The apostle Paul tells us,
Set your mind on things above, not on things on the earth” (Colossians 3:2, NKJV).
Stay focused on what’s above, not on earthly things” (Voice). 
Fill your thoughts with heavenly realities, and not with the distractions of the natural realm” (TPB). 

This verse and many more recognize the freedom of men and women to choose their mindset. To achieve our destiny in God, we must set our minds on spiritual things. Here is some things for this Monday Morning. . .

Supernatural Assistance

  1. The way you think is the way you live.
  2. Your actions are the fruit of your mindset.
  3. Set your mind on what you believe God’s will is for you.

As followers of Jesus Christ, we are promised supernatural assistants to achieve God’s purpose and destiny for our lives. So why would we ever think about giving up? “Now we have received not the spirit of the world, but the spirit which is of God; that we might know the things that are freely given to us of God” (I Corinthians 2:12).

Have a great week . . .

One month down and eleven to go . . .

How fast the month of January has seemed to pass. Here is a thought for you: 

How January went is how your year may go. 

There is a truth, “If you keep doing what you are doing, you will keep getting what you got.” This first Monday in February you can gain a good perspective about what you may accomplish this year, if you keep doing what you are doing.

  • Are you happy about what you accomplished in January?
  • Did you follow-through on some of your desired, “upgrades”? 
  • What was your most important accomplishment in January?

The Super Bowl yesterday was a great game as it usually is. The game had:

  1. Accountability to rules, 
  2. Time allowance, 
  3. Teamwork,
  4. A goal and a prize,
  5. It came to a victorious conclusion, (for one team). 

Accomplishments in life are similar.   It takes teamwork, there are rules, time allowance and a goal linked to each life accomplishment. In 2 Timothy chapter four Paul said, “I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith and now the prize awaits me.”  

As I look over my life, I feel that I have made some “touchdowns” for the team. I want to make more before I join Paul and say, “I have finished my race.” But, I want to keep the same anticipation that Paul had as he faced the challenges of life and ministry. He ran right to the end. 

When the Vince Lombardi trophy was given each person thanked the team. 

I realize that nothing is accomplished alone. I am blessed to have a great team around me. My wife, Janet has been beside me since the beginning. I have had people speak into my life each step of the way. I have a professional “coach” I pay to get with me twice a month. If Tom Brady needs a coach, so do I. I want to keep, “upgrading” the game.

I hope to see you at the podium  . . . 

Have a great Monday, 

Larry Neville
