Have you ever set back and thought about the “you” that you are? I have, along with questions like, “How did I get here?” and better yet, “How do I get out of the here I’m in now?”
The “who we are” is defined by “Who we know”. Notice I said who and not what! So much of the time, society bases the who by a what, but that is a recipe for failure and defeat if I have ever heard of one.
I had lived a life up until November 1991, filled with failure and much because of what I knew. I could have written the book on ‘stupid’ back then and enjoyed reading it over and over. But because of a young lady and an introduction to my Lord and Savior, my life became redefined by a who and no longer a what.
Now that does not mean life changed completely, because the young lady later became my wife and she would tell you that I spent many more years of finding me in Him and Him in me. Over the last few years, I have been on a personal journey defining for myself the Kingdom of God according to His Word and not via the opinion of man. This is where the Kingdom Thinking blog was birthed; however, I feel that it is the journal of my journey in Kingdom revelation, and I am just sharing it with those that will listen.
Today, who am I? Well, I’m glad you asked. I am one half of the CEO leadership team of Living Water Teaching Ministries International http://www.livingwaterteaching.org . I have traveled coast to coast as well as Internationally, ministering and teaching. I share this position with my best friend; my wife, Debbie. We have walked out the good with the bad and we have dealt with family loss in a way that no one else should have to. I have discovered that most CEO’s have no idea what their titles stand for, but we do. It stands for “serving above all” and this is not found hiding behind a desk; but instead, leading the charge to change so that others can find the real YOU they are destined for!
So who am I is not as important as Whose I am! I am a Kingdom Kid of the most high God. Beyond that, I’m a best friend to the most beautiful lady in the world. I am husband to the most awesome kids ever birthed. I am the CEO of a ministry that has seen over 700,000 come to Christ and graduated over 33,000 Bible School students Internationally. I am a minister to the lost and a teacher to the found. I am a Kingdom coach, helping others find their way out of a dark place into a place called there. I am a man God can and is using to bring Kingdom clarity to all that will listen. I am a entrepreneur, a lover of the outdoors and a lover of life itself. I am all of these and much more because of the Whose I am forever more.
So who are you? I would love to hear your thoughts below. And if you need a guide on your journey, drop me a line to firstname.lastname@example.org and let’s take a Kingdom trip together to find the answers to the real who that you were created to be.
