  • Relationships, rhythms, and rituals help us hear from God
  • Develop a way of learning and experiencing life where you become a friend of knowledge and a companion of wisdom
  • God wants to speak to us
  • Hearing from God seems so super- spiritual and unrealistic, but this is what God desires.
  • Why we don’t hear from God and understand our purpose: We want God to show us not tell us, we chose today over tomorrow, we focus more on WHAT than WHO, doing and being, we make it about us not God
  • Adversity reveals attitude and sharpens aptitude
  • A Godly attitude doesn’t come because you decide to smile harder. That’s petty and really a stupid notion. A Godly attitude comes because you decide to follow God
  • God is working on our character while we are walking out His purpose for us
  • When our attitude is positioned well our aptitude will steadily improve
  • Aptitude gets better with time and experience
  • Practice daily rhythms to help you lean into your purpose
