Chase the Lion

We start dying the day we stop dreaming, and ironically we start living the day we discover a dream worth dying for.

2 Samuel 23:20 (NLT)
20 There was also Benaiah son of Jehoiada, a valiant warrior from Kabzeel. He did many heroic deeds, which included killing two champions of Moab. Another time, on a snowy day, he chased a lion down into a pit and killed it.

Does your favourite scripture become the theme of your life?


Quit living as if the purpose of
life is to arrive safely at death.
Run to the roar.
Set God-sized goals.
Pursue God-given passions.
Go after a dream that is destined
to fail without divine intervention.
Stop pointing out problems and
become part of the solution.

Stop repeating the past and
start creating the future.
Face your fears.
Fight for your dreams.
Grab opportunity by the
mane and don’t let go!
Live like today is the first day
and last day of your life.

Don’t let what’s wrong with
you keep you from worshiping
what’s right with God.
Don’t let fear dictate your decisions.
Burn sinful bridges.
Blaze new trails.
Live for the applause of
nail-scarred hands.
Don’t try to be who you’re not.

Be yourself.
Laugh at yourself.
Dare to dream
God-sized dreams.
Dare to be different.
Quit holding out.
Quit holding back.
Quit running away.
Chase the lion.
