The a,b,c’s of Believing: I – Intentional

“The great tragedy that I have witnessed over and over again is that we keep underestimating how much God wants to do in us and through us. Too many of us have believed the lies we have been told: that we’re not good enough, we’re not smart enough, we’re not talented enough, we’re just not enough. One of the facets of God that makes him extraordinary is his ability to do the impossible through ordinary, everyday, common people like you and me.” 

― Erwin Raphael McManus, The Last Arrow: Save Nothing for the Next Life


INTENTIONAL:  Characterized by conscious design or purpose; deliberate, knowing; intended.

Done, made or performed with purpose and intent; deliberate.


At the end of your life, your greatest regret won’t be the things you did but wish you hadn’t. Your greatest regret will be the things you didn’t do but wish you had. It’s the what if dreams that we never act upon that turn into if only regrets.
