Do You Have a BIG ‘But’ or Do You Have a BIG God?



How to shift from excuses to empowerment


Getting results. Crushing it. Achieving the impossible. Accomplishing the miraculous. Surmounting huge obstacles. Becoming the best version of yourself. These are all things that you and I must do in order to have the life we desire – in order to live your dreams. And when you pursue personal growth, these are terms we’ve all heard time and again. 


As leaders and Kingdom expanders, we must do these things.


There is only one problem: It’s not easy. In fact, it’s friggin hard!


This is why we all get to a point where we feel we’ve reached the end of ourselves. Where we feel that we gave it our all. And when we reach that point, if we still don’t have results, what do we do? 


We find excuses to make ourselves feel better. 


That’s when we use our BIG BUT’s. But God wants us to get off our BUTs – why?


Because with Him as a Father, ALL things are possible!


So, in this episode, we help you to get off your BUTs and understand that with Christ you can do all things – no exception, no excuses.
