10x the Investment... of Your Time

If we knew beyond A shadow of a doubt that we could invest 10x our money, we would have no problem finding some cash to invest. It would be a no brainer.

As you look back on 2017, have you thought where you spent time that generated a 10X return on your joy, your impact, or your peace? It is easy for us to get into a rut of living reactive lives that are so "BUSY" and filled with the things other people think we should do. This is not sustainable and will rob us of the life God promises. 

Psalm 1:3 states, "He is like a tree planted by streams of water, which yields its fruit in season and whose leaf does not wither. Whatever he does prospers."

The prospering of the tree begins with where it is planted. If it is planted by the source of life, it produces good fruit. We are not much different than that tree. If we root our lives in the Living God, it will produce good fruit...it will produce LIFE. *Side note: prospering does not always mean financial prosperity, but if we live with purpose, the joy we receive is better than anything money can buy.*

What will you invest your time doing in 2018 that will multiply your impact?

ON THE BOARD

The Big Man's Big Plan. He desires to use His people to reach more people. It brings him glory and brings us satisfaction.

One of the primary items in the WayForward office is a magnet board. Anyone that has expressed interest in organizing a backpacking trip or anyone we believe would be a great organizer has their name on a magnet on the board. When they progress towards booking a trip, we move their name over to the right. Why do we have this board??? It is our prayer board. Every week we pray, like actually talk out loud to God, for these people. 

We believe that God wants to use His people to reach others. It takes ONE PERSON to catch a vision for deeper community, deeper conversations and deeper purpose. That is what a WayForward Trip Organizer does. We pray that doors would open and schedules would align for this to happen. When it does...God uses a few days in the mountains to change lives.

Who does God want you to reach with your life?

Should your name be on this board?
