<p>Just finished reading the book, &quot;Radical&quot; by David Platt. Wow – hit me right smack in the middle of my passion!!! Portions of it are highlighted and written all over with notes and stars reminding me of the passages that reached out and GRABBED me! It is a good read and I highly suggest it. Read it with a new perspective – let the words roll through your mind and reflect on how radically it speaks to you. I think that there are seasons in a person's life when it will speak more directly to your core. So if you read it and it doesn't affect you now…then I suggest hanging onto it and re-reading it in a few months or next year. There WILL BE a point that it makes you, shall I say, uncomfortable to &quot;stay&quot; where you are.</p>
<p>Walking a radical life is exciting to me. Intriguing. Fascinating. Thrilling. Of course you say – it speaks to you. And you are absolutely correct. The bar needs to be set higher. Time must be set aside to make a difference. Wholeheartedly I agree with that and if that is the case then my actions have to support those statements. I am not willing to accept what the world is willing to accept and be satisfied with that. My choice is to walk on the narrow road, the one less travelled. To be intentional.</p>
<p>Not only will you make a difference in the lives of others but think about this point. If you embark on the narrow road you end up closer, to those walking it with you. That brings on a &quot;nearness,&quot; which translates to a deeper closeness to those that are walking alongside. How exciting is that! For I know who is walking beside me on this journey. In fact it puts a big HAPPINESS all over my face.</p>
<p>It'a time to get  <strong><span style=”font-size: 13pt; color: #6000bf;”>R-A-D-I-C-A-L.</span></strong></p>
