Embrace The Lion

I have been a fan of Batterson's writings. His words in his books are clearly lived out in his life. More often than not Im one who gives in to apathy or walks away (or around) fear and obstacles. But in In a Pit with A Lion on A Snowy Day" we are challenged to do the unnatural thing or rather supernatural thing and embrace the "Lions" in our lives to see the challenge of what God can and will do through your life. And such will be a testimony to others. So many truths I had highlighted as I read this book But one of the main ones that really stuck out to me was from Kierkegaard "boredom is the root of all evil" because it means we're refusing to be who God made us to be. If you're bored one thing is for sure" You're not following in the footsteps of Christ. And I am reminded there is no such word as sacrifice in a Believers life for what will compare to all He has done for us. And in other words "sixpence none the richer" Even what we have to offer now is all from Him. God has a plan for each of us and for each of us it is not fear But a life of running to and with the Lion.
