It’s Monday With Joshua & Kerrie . . . Say No To Settling


It’s Monday!   

Monday is our day to ramp it up and renew an element of living.   We recommend this practice for individuals, couples, and families as well as organizations.  This practice serves who we are and what we do.

This week our conversation at the table is about refusing to settle at TableThink and for that matter, in every area of our life.  

Settling is reflected in the statement most of us have made at one time or another:  “It is what it is.”

The thing is . . . there’s no finish line . . . until our last breath.  Even, so, there’s a point in a situation or season when it seems easier to settle in and become comfortable with where we are at and what we are doing.  At the end of the day, the decision to settle is ours to make.  While it might seem that circumstances or others give us no choice, it’s our choice to experience more.

There’s no such thing as  . . .  impossible. . .  when we live out the dream God has put within our life for every. single. day. 


It takes courage to go beyond the comfort of “now” to enter in the “not-yet” and experience the dream which is ours to live.  The key is vision.

 When you get down to it, vision for the “not-yet” is a miraculous gift.

Keeping the vision fresh is one of the best ways to refuse to settle. 

We encourage you to take time to write out your vision without fear of the impossible. Writing the vision for the next encompasses all the elements of living.  So.  It takes thought and time.   


Write one piece of your vision.  Focus on one area  such as:  Relationships. Health.  Home.  Work.   Finances. Education.

Consider all the possibilities of what could be in the one piece of the vision.  

Refuse to settle.  Develop an on-going vision.  Enter the more of God.

“Where there is no vision, the people perish” (Proverbs 29:18). 

Make it a great day!  

There’s always more each and every day–Joshua & Kerrie
