i've still got it.

whatever "it" is.

last night i taught up at travis' youth group at his church in middletown.

and it was a strange feeling. it's the first time i've taught or hung out at a youth group since leaving impact back in december.

i rarely get nervous teaching or speaking. big groups, small groups, youth group, church, retreats, camp, etc. but last night i was concerned. i was thinking, "oh my gosh - what if i've lost "it" and i can't do this?"

and then i went in and taught and hung out with the group. and it rocked.

whatever it is - apparently it's still there. and i'm reminded that it's not about me - and that helps keep perspective.

    you're amazing and you will never lose it, i am 100 percent sure of that. you inspire and encourage more people in more ways than you can probably imagine or realize. someone very wise once told me "ask questions, question authority ... take life by the balls. and for crying out loud, don't fondle, pull HARD!" :):)
