The best place to start something is in your heart. Why? Because every beat is a reminder to your body that this is what’s keeping it going! So make sure every passion you have, every desire you hold, and every facet of your life begins with your heart. That’s going to be what keeps you going when it seems like nothing is moving.
I recently had the opportunity to grow myself on an inner city mission trip in Los Angeles California with Athletes in Action. There is where the idea of #Born2BeLight was born.
After I left LA God really put it on my heart to find a way to 1, push people to form some sort of relationship with people who are different then them. And 2, glorify the God given light EVERY person has in them. That’s why I started this the movement called Born2BeLight. I want to push myself and other people to go out of their way and sit down and get to know somebody. Learn their passions, their desires, their hurts, their true needs, learn about the unique light every person has within them. Truly sacrifice our time and give people the opportunity to speak!
In LA we talked about people not being heard. With this movement I want people to share someone else’s story so more of the world can hear their cries, and their beauty. Their light!… The light they bring to your life!
In order to touch everyone’s life by listening, I will need everyone’s help. I desire for this to be a true movement of people with thousands actively joining in. More than just putting a red X on your hand, or wearing peak once a month, or pouring ice water over yourself. PLEASE hear that I’m not saying that those are not extraordinary causes and organization, I’m just saying I believe in the power of people and some people are being left out.
