Featured Podcast

Today I am featured on Mark Alan Williams‘ podcast.  Mark is a dear friend of mine and for the last year we have been in a platform building mastermind.  During this time I have found Mark to be one of the most genuine people I have ever met.  He asked me awhile back if I would be a guest on his podcast and of course I said yes.

Some Early Morning Thoughts

It has been a little over a month and a half that The Point church has launched out into a new future. Now we are having church in a nice auditorium with tons of room to grow and expand into what God has called us to do here in North County San Diego. It is exciting and frightening all at the same time. Exciting in the fact that we are moving forward – going after the possibilities that God has in store for the church and frightening knowing that everyday is a new walk of faith and this requires a continual trust that God is in control.

Let’s face it: As human beings we tend to get comfortable in the status quo neglecting to realize at times what God is calling us to do, which is to continue to press toward the mark by reaching, teaching, preaching, praying and believing that with God all things are possible.

I cannot think of a better life! To live and truly not live is a tragedy above all tragedies. God placed us on this earth to thrive – in fact He called us to an abundant life. Not too long ago I sent out this tweet & Instagram post that read:

“Live life in such a way that people want what you are living”

This is my desire! This is what I want for every individual that I am privileged to lead! This is what I want for my kids! To live and live with great influence and impact as a child of God is our greatest privilege!

Enjoy your day! I have a feeling it is going to be a great one…

Life Is An Adventure Podcast

cover170x170Howdy everyone!  Things have been insanely busy for the Sargent family and I have not had the chance to post to my blog in a few weeks.  Hopefully things will get back to normal and I can get on to a regular schedule of blogging once again.  I have definitely missed it!

Just a couple weeks ago I was contacted by a friend of mine, Jonathan McClintock who recently started a brand new podcast he calls “Life Is An Adventure.”  He asked if I wouldn’t mind being interviewed for the podcast and of course I agreed.  I have had the privilege of listening to a few of his episodes and he puts out a quality podcast so I was excited to be a part of it.  Below is the link if you would like to listen to it.  Also check out his blog he calls The Survivor’s Blog – excellent stuff!

If It Doesn’t Challenge You…

Someone once told me – Life sure would be a lot easier if I didn’t have all these challenges to overcome!  Of course I think we would all agree with that statement but the truth of the matter is, if there are no challenges then there are no changes.

Challenge brings change – PERIOD!  There is no other way around it and though that often brings difficult and intense moments into our lives, it is necessary for growth.  I for one, do not want to be a person who refuses to grow and although I may not like the way growth comes into my life, it is extremely necessary!

In fact I have learned 3 things when it comes to facing a challenge:

  1. I can refuse to face it
  2. I can complain and gripe about it or….
  3. I can embrace it and welcome it knowing it is bringing about something good in my life.

The key is attitude!  If you know me, you know I am big on attitude.  Attitude determines direction and direction is more important than speed!  (TWEET THIS) It is all in your perception of the challenge that you are facing.  I have been privileged to speak to hundreds of thousands of young people in my short 46 years of life and I tell them each time I get the opportunity – I could let the challenge of having one hand stop me and keep me sidelined from life or I can embrace it and allow it to push me higher and make me stronger.

It all starts with the attitude you possess about the challenge you face.  See those challenges as opportunities instead of obstacles.  Embrace them like you would embrace an old friend.  Know that they are brought into your life to change you into what you were created to become.

That is all!  Have a good day….
