Faith is risky

Things are getting very, very real. On December 23rd, I'll be leaving my full-time job, and literally jumping into God's arms. As you might imagine, I'm starting to get terrified - mostly because I don't have all the answers yet. But that's faith, man. Faith is risky. That being said, I decided to list the pros and cons of a life with God vs. the 9-5 life. 

Doesn't seem so crazy now, does it? I'm actually really glad I took the time to list all of that, because now I'm even more certain. There's just no way I can ignore this pull on my heart.

Ok, but what about money? Let’s be real…I make $54,000 as it is. Every month, I’m worried about rent. Every day, I’m checking my bank account. If I want to have fun, it means skipping a couple of meals. Is that living? I’d rather take the risk of being happy and having unlimited potential.

(Just to be clear, I will not be taking a salary in 2017. My expenses and bills will be structured into the CLTIVATE budget, but that’s it.) I certainly don’t have all the answers, but God does, and that’s enough for me.

Idk man…it just makes sense in my heart. I serve a God with a 100% success rate, so I’m gonna go with this. If I fail, I fail – but at least I won’t have to wonder “what if”. Sure, fear and anxiety creep in every day, but I know those feelings and thoughts aren’t from God.

The average person has 1,000 Facebook friends. Imagine sharing CLTIVATE with 1,000 new people? Surely it will touch someone. (Btw I totally made that number up, but it seems about right.)

For whatever reason, our Instagram is blowing up. Probably because Instagram is way cooler than Facebook ;)

Orrr you can buy a shirt and wear it a lot.
