We’re so grateful to have had Pete Wilson join us on Bloom (in)courage this past week. Here are a few of our favorite quotes from his posts:
“Willing to see”—that’s crucial. Because most of us are experts at hiding from what we don’t want to know about our own lives. (Hiding Behind the Distractions)
It’s those unexpected shattered-dream moments that provide us with twists and turns in life where we meet God. Rarely do we surrender when we feel strong and in control. But when a dream is shattered, when life takes an unexpected turn and veers out of control, that’s when we fall to our knees. That’s when a new dream can grow. (I Will)
Listen, choosing to be “real” over being “liked” will not be the safest thing you do today, but it might be the most God honoring and rewarding. (Breaking From The Herd)
That’s some good stuff, don’t you think? If you enjoyed having Pete join us this week will you let him know? You can visit him at his Blog and purchase a copy of Empty Promises here. Be sure and check out the book trailer and other resources, too.
