Today I turned 35 years old

Today was a big day in my life, I'm officially half-way to 70! I spent some time thinking about where I thought I'd be at 35. I've had a lot of dreams for the first half of my life ever since my teenage years. Here are a few random thoughts about what I thought my life would be like @ 35...
-I thought that I would have more hair
-I thought that I would have more money
-I thought that I would be more mature :)
-I thought that I would marry a hot, godly woman (& I did)
-I thought that I would have 3 kids (& I do, plus 1 & 1 more on the way)
-I thought that I would Pastor a relevant,vibrant & life-changing church (& I do)
-I thought that I would be playing a lot of basketball (not happening, yet)
-I thought that I would weigh less than I do!
-I thought that I would be helping people experience the love of God (& I am)

I look back over the last 35 years and I am thankful that God has allowed virtually all of my dreams to come to pass. I am blessed more than I deserve, seriously!!! God owes me nothing & I'm thankful for everything! I'm currently dreaming for the second half of my life and I've got some absolutely humongous, God-sized dreams. I'm believing for each of them to come to pass in my life! What are you dreaming for God to do in your life?

My Back Story- Week 1- How To Break Your Confidence Crisis

My Back Story-  Part 1 “So do not throw away your confidence; it will be richly rewarded.”   Hebrews 10:35 Confidence maintained in your mind, produces rich rewards in your life. @KevinGerald Key Thought-  Life Is Better When Confidence Is Bigger “Faith is the confidence that what we hope for will actually happen; it gives us assurance about things we cannot see.”   Hebrews 11:1-2 (NLT) Faith  is an action, based on a belief, supported by confidence  Confidence  is trust, certainty & boldness in a person or thing.  “The Lord is my light and my salvation— whom shall I fear?  The Lord is the stronghold of my life—of whom shall I be afraid?  When the wicked advance against me to devour me, it is my enemies and my foes who will stumble and fall.  Though an army besiege me, my heart will not fear; though war break out against me, even then I will be confident.”  Psalm 27:1-3 (NIV) When You Are In A Confidence Crisis, You Will Feel: Inadequate  --  Inferior
