The Spirit and the Shovel: Learning how to Be Still while still doing the Lord’s Work with Michael Perron
Manage episode 335535566 series 2885787
In the fast paced, go get it mentality, and hustle oriented society and culture that we found ourselves in, how would you define success? Is it about the fame, the fortune, or the followership? This world does a really good job of constantly preaching discontentment, but what our Built Different Guest today offers us is a message of hope to remind you of what it takes to just be still and know that we serve the One, True, and Living God. Our guest today is Michael Perron. Michael serves as the Minister of Life Recovery at Prestonwood Baptist Church in Plano, Texas. He describes this position as one that exists to help individuals recover the life that God has always intended for them. In this episode, Michael shares his incredibly moving testimony which reminds us of Mark 8:36 which says, “What does it profit a man to gain the whole world, yet forfeit His soul?” At a point in time in his life, Michael had everything - the looks, the money, the ladies, and more - but he was the emptiest he’s ever been! Ironically, the Lord used the height of his fitness modeling career as his rock bottom moment where he ran cliniging to Christ where he finally found the joy, satisfaction, and fulfillment he’s always desired. He leaves us with this thought - Are you living a life of success or are you living a life of significance?
