Diary Entry: 

I received an invitation to the GWL Combine!

I’m very excited, but also realize the daunting task that lies ahead to prepare for the upcoming 2017 GWL Draft.

Goal: To be drafted by a GWL team as high as possible and to affect the outcome of the battles, and to eventually win as many GWL Prizes as possible.

To Do:
1. Secure a position coach to work on fundamentals.
2. Study playbook 2 hours daily.
3. Exercise body and mind 2 hours daily.
4. Practice drills repeatedly until they become second nature.
5. Push through when it seems impossible.
6. Learn opponent strengths and tendencies.
7. Learn maneuvers to beat opponent to key spots.
8. Learn techniques to provide consistency to maneuvers to assure best outcomes.  
9. Study and learn how to work with team to produce optimum team outcomes.
10. Avoid distractions that sap energy from the task to become the best GWL player possible.

1. GWL = Gospel Witnessing League
2. GWL Draft = Selection by a team to take steps to win GWL Prize
3. GWL Prizes = Men and women giving their hearts and lives to Jesus Christ

4. Playbook = Bible

“Go and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit.
Teach these new disciples to obey all the commands I have given you. And be sure of this: I am with you always, even to the end of the age.” Matthew 28:19-20

Where's Waldo?...or Where's Bezalel?

Dear Readers,

I’m so glad you stopped by. My blog today is about a popular kid’s book where the reader tries to find Waldo in the midst of groups of people in various settings. It’s also about another person I recently came across who for some reason reminds me a lot of Waldo.

I recently read in Exodus 35-40 about a little mentioned man who “was filled with the Spirit of God”, and whom God gave “great wisdom, ability, and expertise in all kinds of crafts”. His name was Bezalel.

The reason Bezalel reminds me of Waldo is because he is talked about often in Exodus performing and supervising all forms of tabernacle construction, from the large task of curtain making and decorating, to the intricate and holy task of building and overlaying with gold the Ark of the Covenant, and finally all the way to point where God’s Glory filled the tabernacle.

In a sense Bezalel is just like Waldo. He could be found in various settings in the Israelite camp around the site where the tabernacle was being constructed. He could be spotted, with a careful eye, supervising many different groups of people doing various tasks related to the construction.

I pray that you and I are filled with the Spirit of God and expertise to work with various groups of people to carry out the awesome task of building God’s Kingdom to the point where the Glory of God fills many hearts.

See you next time,
