I received a phone call today from a close friend who said that they were hosting a special speaker tonight at their church. He hesitated as he thought of the speakers name and after a second mentioned that a pastor named Mark Batterson would be at Englewood Church tonight.

Mark Batterson is an author and Pastor of National Community Church in D.C. His most recent book, “In a Pit with a Lion on a Snowy Day” is on it’s 5th print.

Tonight I was able to hear Mark share and his message is inspiring and motivating. It was based of Benaiah from 2 Samuel.

Benaiah is known as one of the 30 mighty men that King David surrounded himself with, and was famous for two different feats. The most extraordinary is that he killed a lion while in a pit with him.

The challenge was to take the offense and begin to chase the lions in our life. When we face the lions, we face our fears and confront the very things that hinder our future.

So now I’m on a mission to read this book and chase my lions.
