Worthless (by Jon Allen)

Today I spent so much time working on STUFF.
I started the day sharing with my Co-Workers what Bible Verse Guides My Life.
We talked about our insecurities and what we believe.
Lately I have been thinking about what really matters to me in this world.
I keep focusing on getting ahead, when I am not even sure what that means anymore.
Its like this: Even if I get the dream home for my wife.
I can put my baby girl in the best school and save up tons of money for her to go to college. I can make it so that my wife and I can retire without a care in the world.
What do I really have?
Why is it so important to me to get to the finish line?


I'm tired. I mean it. I am tired of letting my goals in life get in front of what God wants to do.
Come On, do I really believe that God wants nothing more than for me to have a great 401k plan?
Tonight I talked with my teen group about being authentic. 
Tonight I challenge myself to stop being selfish.

What Really Matters to me?
Living Life with God, my family and my neighbors.

A few weeks ago I went on a small district men's retreat where I thought it would be a good time to minister to a few guy friends of mine. What happened though was that I felt a tugging on my heart to get back to authentic mentor-ship. I realize tonight that I pulled myself away from what I was most passionate and gifted at out of fear. I was afraid that I needed to devote my time to providing for my family. I was afraid that I needed to watch the budget so tightly that we couldn't even buy groceries the last half of this month. I was afraid of letting God be God, Not anymore, not anymore....Time to Man up! The STUFF is Worthless
Tonight I am praying for the stuff that is Priceless to come back into my life.
