Yesterday was my birthday. Thanks to all of you who expressed birthday wishes. I turned 29 years old yesterday and it really caused something in me to stir. I realized yesterday that I'm not getting any younger! I know it sounds profound, but it really smacked me in the face yesterday. I know some of you laugh and say, "Dude, you're only 29 years old, just wait until later!" Those of you who say that may have a valid point, BUT it does not change the reality that I am truly asking myself if I'm giving EVERYTHING I have to become and accomplish the things God has put on my heart.
Here is my promise to all of you: you will see a much more intense and motivated man from this point on. I know most of you think that I couldn't get much more intense or motivated, but the truth is: I still live with hesitancy, complacency, and fear of failure. I question whether or not I'm truly living a life of sacrifice. Not any more. I want to live full out and lead a Jesus movement like I have been called and born to do. I want to see the Savage Generation message lived out in my lifetime, and I don't know when that lifetime may come to an end, because I'm not getting any younger.
How would you live differently if you only had 5 years left to live, 1 year left to live, or less? Are you living like you have forever or do you live with urgency?
