Monday Minute “Born To Be Challenged”

Good morning everyone!

a couple weeks ago I was down in New Mexico for a week filming a hunt, our last hunt of season3. We were hunting in some big desert country, the weather was pretty cold and the wind didn’t want to stop blowing. It was a challenging hunt.

In the evenings we would head back to our base camp that was tucked down in a canyon. One night I stepped out my warm sleeping back into the cold night air. I stood out and just stared at the sky. There was no moon and not a cloud in the sky. The stars were extremely vibrant!

Many thoughts went through my head as I stood there for only a few minutes, The wind funneling through the canyon against the cactus and yucca plants was the only thing to hear. I reflected back on another year, how challenging it has been, and how quitting likes to sneak into my mind as an option. That’s when I realized it is challenge itself that has kept me motivated to continue. It is challenge I have been searching for.

Challenge was the vary reason we were on this hunt, we were there because it wasn’t going to be easy. We were born to be challenged in life, I have figured that out, once you do, you will become addicted to it. Nothing good in life comes easy easy, nothing. We must learn to embrace challenge for what it is, and use it to our advantage to grow.

Have a great week everyone!



1 Peter 5:10
And after you have suffered a little while, the God of all grace, who has called you to his eternal glory in Christ, will himself restore, confirm, strengthen, and establish you.
