Repentance means you change your mind so deeply that it changes you.
If you want your dream more than you have to have people's affirmation, that's how you break through your border bullies.
It's when you begin to think about going to your dream that your dream is always outside of your comfort zone. It's always beyond what you've ever done.
To truly repent of a big thing, you have to go into it with your heart open and force yourself to deal with it at that level and to apologize to God.
The journey toward your Big Dream changes you. In fact, the journey itself is what prepares you to succeed at what you were born to do.
I grew up on a dairy farm in Southeastern Connecticut, and I went into the Peace Corps right after college. I went to Ghana. I fell in love with Africa and have basically been working in Africa ever since.
I went to Africa without the perspective of a balance between teaching people the truth, which has been my calling, and helping people who have physical problems, like AIDS and orphans and hunger.
Not everybody is going to agree with your dream. I'm sure you've had border bullies in your life as you moved into your career. And what we don't want to do is focus upon them.
Most of us don't think about miracles that we could possibly do. We don't have a vocabulary of how God works with the specific things that He does, and we don't know how to align ourselves with what He is doing so that we can be His vehicle on the earth to deliver a miracle.
Most people think that Heaven is a choir, and all you will do is sing.
If you don't have a healthy workforce, you can't develop economically. And if you don't have a well-educated and healthy workforce, that is a huge constraint on your development.
I had a negative feeling about money until I studied it much more deeply. I found out Jesus Christ wants you to keep your money, not give it away so that you don't have it.
Ninety-nine percent of Americans have never had malaria, but I've been in Africa and have had malaria six times, so I can say now what it's like to get malaria, and it's horrible.
There is an economy in Heaven. There are cities in Heaven, and there are people who lead and people who don't lead, people who are rewarded and people who are not rewarded.
People can't do miracles and are not responsible to do miracles, but people can pick up miracles from God and hand it to another person - a miracle happens when that occurs.
