'Make it RAIN HARDER!' Prince before his iconic 2007 Super Bowl Half Time Show in a driving rainstorm...
He sang a big chunk of the 80s soundtrack that still rock n rolls through my mind from time to time. And, Prince, was as iconic a star as rock n roll has given us. I would be lying if I said I was a huge fan, but I have enjoyed some of his greatest hits like 'Purple Rain' and 'Dove's Cry' and couldn't name many more. HOWEVER, I HAVE HUGE RESPECT FOR HOW HE WORKED AT HIS CRAFT AND HONED HIS GIFTS. As a leader and a talent scout for world changers I gotta tell you he inspires me and reminds me of the power of talent merged with a huge work ethic. If you have a huge gift and you don't work at it that's just a shame and a waste. [ Jesus agrees with me on this -- check out Matthew 25:26-30 ] And, if you have talents and will multiply them with a massive work ethic then there's magic in that prescription. And, let me go a little further and remind you that if you're a Christ follower aided by the power the Holy Spirit then you can play at an even higher level by drawing upon the resources of heaven. [ Check out John 15:1-8 ]
So, my friend, honor the talents that you've been given by honing them and working at your craft aided by God. Then, when it's your time to take your stage wherever that is, you'll nail it just like Prince did in this amazing halftime show. Watch this video and it tells some of the back story of Prince taking the stage in a driving rain storm during Super Bowl 2007! Simply amazing. He could bring what he brought because he prepared way in advance of that evening!
What are you doing today to honor and hone the talents you've been given?
All the best,
A few years back I preached this message at Phos Community Church and it is still one of the most important messages ever for those who have loved ones or friends struggling with self-destructive decisions and actions.
Here's to your best life ever! God designed you for great things from here to eternity. My hope is that you are living fully. I'd love to be one of your encouragers on your journey! If you'd like to catch more posts like this, just let me know and I'll keep you in the loop.
There's no way to achieve anything great without having to become and overcomer. You'll have to overcome imaginary and real barriers, the scorn of others who don't have the courage to climb with you, and the doubt of skeptics. And, you'll need to find a few friends to set the pace for you to cross the finish line to shatter the old records and reset the human imagination about what is possible.
This short video by Roger Bannister is chock full of tips for overcoming, like deep personal desire, commitment, training for a goal, and having a team of pacers to pull you around the track on time.
Absolutely inspiring! Go get em!
Here's to Your Highest Best Life!
One of the coolest things about getting to share powerful life giving principles with people nearly every week is that often I learn new things that give me new power-filled insights that impact my life as well! This message is one of those loaded with power nuggets that will take you and me to a whole 'notha level of living! Dig in!
Jesus developed his followers by bringing them to the edge of the impossible. He invites you to the edge of the impossible, too! And, that's where you'll find your purpose and your joy!! Enjoy.
In an amazing healing story Jesus heals a paralyzed man because he had four friends who ripped the roof off to get him to Jesus. What kind of friend are you? Real friends get their friends in front of Jesus. The principles unpacked in this message will make you a more powerful friend than ever. Let me know what you think!
The University of Louisville Cardinal Football team won the Music City Bowl just a few months ago. In this video I get to interview some of the top players on that team about what it means to be truly coachable. I think you'll be inspired!
Jeff is joined on stage by University of Louisville Football players Brandon Radcliff, Reggie Bonnafon, Devonte Fields and LJ Scott, along with UofL FCA Leader Chris Morgan. Learn about having a super life by being super coachable from these amazing young men.
