Travis Shelton: Greater Things

Very truly I tell you, whoever believes in me will do the works I have been doing, and they will do even greater things than these, because I am going to the Father. John 14:12

“A family’s ability to make progress in any area of life is only limited by their belief in the outcome and their discipline to see it through. Countless people have achieved feats that make my accomplishments look like child’s play. Never underestimate the power of someone crazy enough to believe it’s possible.”

Jenni is still back east so I am flying to visit a good friend in Wisconsin, John Stanley, for a couple days. He has become an influential friend and brother that helps me stay centered with Christ.

He’s the one who taught me the Surrender Novena. He got it from Don Dolindo Ruotolo. “Jesus, I surrender myself to you. Take care of everything.” Say that 10 times a day. It will change your life.

Now Jesus said we would do greater things, and Travis and I are convinced it’s possible. We’ve seen it with our own eyes. Our passion (and Travis and I have a lot of passion) finds roots in real stories of transformation.

Yesterday, it was our decisions that got us into debt. Today, I love how belief is what gets you out of debt. Sure, it’s coupled with discipline, but belief is what drives a person forward.

The best part of work for people like Travis and me is this. We love the truth. We proclaim the truth. We feel like a broken record sometimes, repeating the truth, but it never gets old. It never loses it’s power.

It sets people free. But only those receptive enough to acknowledge their bad decisions and lean into the belief that there is hope for their future if they act on what is true. I don’t know where you are but I know this.

If you listen to people like Travis and me, we will finish life with no regrets. Your kids will admire your radical obedience. They will thank you and follow you. And you will have joy and be enriched by God on the journey time and time again.
