Jesus Lifehouse Sendai just started at a new venue!
We are now in Livehouse Enn Every Sunday from 12!!
It’s really exciting and already a great hit.
Being part of such a great team, and working towards the same goal is really fulfilling. I feel connected and driven.
Where do you go to feel that connection?
So many people have high expectations of others.
Parents expect their children to go to university, children expect their parents to be able to solve any problem, and patients expect their doctor to cure them.
These aren’t bad expectations. We should always hope the best for our children, trust in our parents and expect our doctors to try their best.
But how far should we go?
Some women expect their future partner to come riding in on a white horse, some parents expect their children to get perfect in every test and become high level executives, and some people expect others to be infallible.
Is putting that pressure on other people really a good thing?
Most children will lie to their parents at some stage in their life, and a lot of people will try to make themselves sound more important than they actually are. The reason? There is this emotional need to have people approve of them.
What are your expectations of others? Are they high enough to challenge them or so high that they are unattainable?
It’s a New Life!
These are the opening words to one of my favourite songs.
I have been unable to post for a little while (sorry about that) but now I am back up and running!
Ok, the big news…
I moved to Sendai!
It’s a beautiful city with a wonderful heart. The people here are great, and I want to explore the whole town!
So the topic today?
Seize the Day
There are so many opportunities that come our way. It’s hard to just really figure out what to do. Do we turn left, right, go straight, make a U-turn… one thing is for sure, without making any decisions, we are just parked (Or, if like me you can’t drive, then standing still).
When someone gives you an opportunity, make a decision! whether it’s yes or no, make it not just a choice but a direction that you want to go in.
It could be a job opportunity, a date or just an invitation to a party, but think about where this decision will take you.
Do you want this type of job? will it take you to the career you truly want?
Do you like this person? Do you see yourself getting any further than just dating?
Is this party with people you like? Will it be a great opportunity to meet like-minded people?
If the answer to any of these questions is “No“, then of course the choice is obvious.
But when the answer is “Yes“, then don’t be afraid to grab hold of the opportunity and follow it to wherever it takes you.
What choices will you make today? Where will they take you?
What is your vision type?
There are 3 types of “vision” that I’m aware of.
A personal vision.
This is where you have a goal for yourself. It will help you, make you better skilled, and it’s something you love. And it’s all for you alone.
Others oriented vision.
This is something you want to do for someone else. Either you decided to do it for them, or they requested it of you. It has very little to do with personal vision.
This is a vision that incorporates your talents, gifts and a love of other people. It is one in which you seek to change yourself for the better, help others and make a difference in the world.
