MMP054: Reflections Upon Turning 40 by the Ministry Mentor, Matt Sturdevant

Welcome to Episode 54! In this week’s episode I share some reflections and thoughts as I enter into a new decade of life and turn 40.

My reflections upon turning 40…

  1. God loves me more than I will truly understand on this side of eternity.
  2. God is faithful, my job is to trust and obey.
  3. Life is a journey, not a destination…enjoy the ride!
  4. I can’t go it alone.¬† I need…
    1. Friends
    2. Mentors & Coaches
    3. To be investing in others around me
  5. I’m so glad I picked an amazing Life Long Teammate, my wife Jessica.
  6. Never stop learning and growing.
  7. God uses the stuff on my plate to train and correct me…pain is often involved.
  8. There are 3 things I need to be continually working on…
    1. My personal walk with God
    2. My Faithfulness
    3. My priorities
      1. King and Kingdom
      2. Family
      3. Work
      4. My Stewardships, the “stuff” I own
      5. The Options, everything else
  9. When I set goals, I’m surprised at what I can actually get done.

Those are my reflections, but what about you?

  • Where are you today?
  • Where do you want to be?
  • How will you get there?
  • What is you NEXT STEP?

I challenge you to determine you next step and take it!
