“What do you want to do this summer?”

Your story starts with a want.

“Not reaching your potential is like dying with the music still inside of you” – John Maxwell 

Then they came to Jericho. As Jesus and his disciples, together with a large crowd, were leaving the city, a blind man, Bartimaeus (which means “son of Timaeus”), was sitting by the roadside begging.

When he heard that it was Jesus of Nazareth, he began to shout, “Jesus, Son of David, have mercy on me!” Many rebuked him and told him to be quiet, but he shouted all the more, “Son of David, have mercy on me!”

Jesus stopped and said,  “Call him.”  So they called to the blind man, “Cheer up! On your feet! He’s calling you.”

Throwing his cloak aside, he jumped to his feet and came to Jesus. 

“What do you want me to do for you?” Jesus asked him. The blind man said, “Rabbi, I want to see.” “Go,” said Jesus, “your faith has healed you.” Immediately he received his sight and followed Jesus along the road. – Mark 10:46-52 NIV

A story is created when it is intentionally lived.

  1. Place your trust fully in God.

    Take delight in the Lord, and he will give you your heart’s desires. Commit everything you do to the Lord. Trust him, and he will help you. – Psalms 37:4-5 NLT

  2. Take personal responsibility for your life. 

“You cannot change your destination overnight, but you can change your direction overnight.” - Jim Rohn 

Your story starts with a want.
