Child's face in Magnifying glass.

At durable424 my goal for the coming year is to share from the overflow of God’s presence, love and goodness in my life.

  • It is my vision that the ideas shared here on durable424 will bring faith that you know greater endurance and long lasting encouragement to live a more fruitful life pleasing to God and rewarding.
  • It is my desire that these thoughts will be reminders of our Great Hope that in turn will inspire you to endure!
  • It is my expectation to see the power of the Gospel and the power of God at work in daily life encounters prompted by love.
  • It is my ambition to proclaim these truth concepts: Yes, He is! Yes, He did! Yes, you are! Yes, you can!

“May the God who gives endurance and encouragement give you a spirit of unity among yourselves as you follow Christ Jesus, so that with one heart and mouth you may glorify the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ.” Romans 15:5 NIV

“We continually remember…your work produced by faith, your labor prompted by love, and your endurance inspired by hope.” 1 Thess. 1:3 NIV

Don’t Un-Dream Your Dream!

Have you ever UN-dreamed your dream? This article by Perry Noble is a good critique of how to do it. (Hint: Don’t do it!)

If you’ve had a dream for your life, but boredom, predictability, frustration and jealousy of others has taken over… it’s time to RE-Dream your dream!

How to Let Your Dream Die… By Perry Noble

#1 – Expect for everyone to understand you.  (The quickest way to let the dream inside of you die is to dedicate yourself to everyone elses dream for your life!)

#2 – Believe that you are going to face zero resistance and that everyone will be excited for you!

#3 – Believe that it is going to be easy (where in the Bible did Jesus ever ask anyone to do anything easy or attainable without His involvement?)

#4 – Fall in love with the way things are rather than how they should be!

#5 – Allow people who have never accomplished anything significant to tell you why you can’t either!

#6 – Procrastinate, always say “later” whenever you want to pursue the passion that the Lord put in your heart!  (The snooze button is one of satan’s best friends!)

#7 – Look at failure as confirmation that you should not have done what you are attempting rather than a lesson to be learned.

#8 – For goodness sake, don’t you dare try to work hard…if a dream is going to die you have to sit around and “pray about it” rather than stepping up and using the gifts that Jesus has placed inside of you!

#9 – Don’t trust anyone, you have got to believe that the only way for something to be done right is for you to do it…that way you never believe in others OR ask them to come along side of you.

#10 – Buy into the lie that you are average, ordinary, that OTHERS may be able to do great things but there is no way you could ever accomplish anything significant.

#11 – NEVER ask God to set you on fire with HIS passion and plans for your life.

Do these 11 things on a consistent basis and I will guarantee you will live a life filled with boredom, predictability, frustration and jealousy of others!
