The difference between overachievers who change the world and those who don’t is simply that the ones who do have learned to live out a healthy version of the overachiever personality.


Thought of the Week:

In the world, but not of the world. Be different.

Traveling with my family – saw lots of people, lots of coming and going, y’all the world is big, and so is the number of people in it, and so is the rise of depression, suicide, anxiety and desperation to be someone of significance.

You are significant.

Don’t buy into the hustle and bustle of the world. Be counter. You can achieve great and significant things without the mentality of overachieving. 

Verse of the Week:

Romans 12:2

Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect. (Romans 12:2)

Matthew 5:13-16

You are the salt of the earth. But what good is salt if it has lost its flavor? Can you make it salty again? It will be thrown out and tramples underfoot as worthless. You are the light of the world – like a city on a hilltop that cannot be hidden. No one lights a lamp and then puts it under a basket. Instead, a lamp is placed on a stand, where it gives light to everyone in the house. In the same way, let your good deeds shine out for all to see, so that everyone will praise your heavenly Father. 

Prayer of the Week:

We praise You for giving us a different way to live. Thank you for the peace we have the privilege to walk in through the blood of Christ and for the purpose you have placed within us that guides us with meaning and significance all the days of our lives.  

We confess we get caught up in the mundane and monotony of this world. We are pressed in on all sides with pressure, comparison, challenges, media and competition, and the stress can consume our souls. It steals of peace, robs us of joy and pushes us into places of anxiety you never intended for us.  Thank you for leading us beside still waters and for restoring our soul.  As you tell us in the Psalms, we have nothing we need when we walk with You. You are our provider, our supplier, our peace, our refuge, our comforter, our joy, our power, our everything.

Thank you for shepherding us and commanding us into a life of rest, trust and goodness in You, thank we might be in this world, but not of it.  We believe fully that surely goodness and joy will follow us all the days of our lives, and we pray that You would use the light and love you are pouring into us to overflow into the lives of those around us. Let us be salty and bright, shining hope, peace, and open love in this world to all those who are struggling in hopelessness, stress, darkness and overwhelm. 

We believe that you will continue to give us more and more boldness to stand firmly on the hill that you have placed us and let our light shine far. Equip us with continued wisdom as you grow us, prune us and transform our minds … we praise you for the miracles you are doing in our lives and for the mountains you are moving. What an adventure it is to walk this life under your watchful and wonderful eye.
In Jesus’s Name,Amen
