He is being real and honest and some of his stories really shocked me and taught me a lot.
It's written in a simple and not academic way. Read it if you are looking for a book that will challenge you and cause you to grow a bit: Truly a great way to start my reading year! A very inspiring book which points to Jesus all throughout, containing several testimonies that brought tears to my eyes - God is good!

Aug 08, Grace rated it it was amazing. I recommend this to everyone who is in a position of leadership or aspires to become a leader in the future. This is full of amazing gold nuggets and I had to stop reading several times because I was so overwhelmed by some of the deep revelations in this book. I was absolutely floored by the sincerety and honesty of Ps. Brian Houston about the struggles he had to go through and I seriously believe, we should honour our leaders more as they carry burdens that we often have no clue about.
On another I recommend this to everyone who is in a position of leadership or aspires to become a leader in the future. On another note: Jun 01, ParisRios rated it really liked it.
The author, Brian Houston, talks about how he lived before the Hillsong church was made. Brian also tells the story of why he felt a calling to build a church.
I would recommend this book to people that think life stories are cool and that really desire to have a good relationship with god. I thought this book was really interesting because I've learned a lot about how and why Hillsong church was created. Jun 23, Robin rated it it was amazing. This book gives great insight into the history of Hillsong Church and the people who helped shape the modern day Hillsong Church as we know it.
Brian Houston dives deep into his past experiences and opens the door into his personal life and relationship with Bobby and his parents. Jaw-dropping and beautifully written. Oct 05, Julie Mills rated it it was amazing.
I love Brian Houston's heart and the honesty with which he shares his story. People often look at highly successful leaders and think that their life is been a bed of roses. However, dynamic leaders such as Brian have known pain and sorrow, and have allowed God to work all things together for his glory. I loved this book and would recommend it to leaders and anyone aspiring to experience more! Your best is yet to come. Looking forward to changing my life as well as others.
Looking forward to the journey. Stories great. Writing terrible. Love the guy, but this is a very shallow book. Aug 03, Pedro Aguirre rated it it was amazing.
Awesome leadership book on how to focus and experience Jesus on all areas of life.
First time reading anything by Brian Houston. Outstanding book, backed up by the word of God, honest and real. It may sound a bit forced or simplistic, but each of us is born with uniquely tailored skills and latent abilities tailored individually to our unique purpose in life.
To discover this fact and to live in that power is what will free you into a vast and expansive life - a life that you may only dream of, which you think is just for the lucky ones. This personal measure of God's grace gives you authority and stability.
It is not based on who you are, what others think you are or your performance. Whether you are a housewife, a business leader, an artist, a marketer, or some of all the above, if you are living what God has graced you to do, then you have His support, encouragement, resources, and favor.
You passed the "perhaps" portal and entered the vast wonderful dessert! God wants you to live life certain of yourself. God is not schizophrenic.
He did not create you in one way to use you in another. He knew exactly what he had in mind for the future when he formed you. His word gives us a glimpse of the way God created each one of us individually to act in the sphere or measure with which he has exclusively entrusted us, according to Romans, chapter 12 verses 3 to Do not think of yourself more highly than you ought, but rather think of yourself with sober judgment, in accordance with the faith God has distributed to each of you.
We have different gifts, according to the grace given to each of us. If your gift is prophesying, then prophesy in accordance with your faith.
What are your strengths? Can you identify the unique gifts in your life? They exist, whether you recognize them or not.
You see, it's easy to fill your mind with what you do not have and lose sight of what God can do with what you have. There are people who are uniquely graced for business, others for Christian ministry or motherhood, and the list goes on! You may be graced with the gift of generosity or the gift of compassion, which is the heart that aches for the wounded and the needy. What a beautiful gift to have! The Bible says in the first letter of Peter: Whether you are gifted with the gift of leadership, the gift of athletics or the gift of creativity, we are called to be good stewards and faithful servants of what is in our hands.
No one is exempt, and if you do not play your part, we will be losing the unique grace and individual strengths you bring to the here and now. There is tremendous satisfaction in knowing that we are doing exactly what God created us to do and that we are obedient to his call in our lives. It is when we discover our strengths and become more comfortable with the grace given us that we see God's promises to our vast and limitless future begin to take shape.
Think about how others' behavior and conduct positively or negatively affect you. It may be a particular teacher at a school, who gave you words of affirmation that gave you the courage to believe in yourself. Maybe it was a pastor or mentor who walked the second mile with you to help you achieve your dream. You may have memories of someone who spoke or acted cruelly at you, making you feel insignificant or useless.
We should never underestimate the power we have over each other, especially the strength of our leadership decisions over those who seek us for guidance or support. It's not that we have to be a perfect person to qualify ourselves in life. Not at all. But we must be honest and polite and live with authenticity and accept others. Jesus said:. This is the most important, the first of any list. But there is a second, linked to this: When we think of the word pioneer today, we immediately think of Amelia Earhart, Captain James Cook, Christopher Columbus, Albert Einstein, Steve Jobs, and countless others who have changed history with their bold and curious spirit.
Their lives were dedicated to discovery and movement ahead. Walt Disney, one of the most imaginative pioneers of the twentieth century, said of his growing empire:. We keep moving forward, opening new doors and doing new things because we are curious and curiosity continues to lead us on new paths. These new paths have not always led to the success associated with the Disney name.
In , when Walt contacted MGM studios to distribute Mickey Mouse, they told him that the idea would never work out, that a giant mouse on the screen would cause dread in women and children. Being a pioneer requires courage, ingenuity, and a sense of adventure. With the pioneering spirit must come the willingness to fail, but also the unwavering belief in the future long-term vision. No matter who you are or how many years of faith you have, we will all have difficulties and trials.
But in these times you discover that the strength of your spirit and the health of your soul comes from God. Such setbacks have their cost, and we look to God and people for comfort, but the Bible tells us not to let the world's problems destroy us: Commit to completing your run with God, allowing your grace to carry you, empower you, and sustain you when you are overwhelmed and do not know what to do to proceed.
We stand in the way of the supernatural healing that God wants to give us when we are in pain. What you focus on in life determines whether or not you will experience peace of heart. The Bible offers clear instructions on how to find and live in a place of peace, as well as showing what makes us peaceful.
Anxiety and worry work in opposition to inner peace. When you are worried or anxious about something, even though it is something that must be faced and accepted as a process, you leave little room for God's peace. Worry is a real danger to health. The Bible says, "Anguish in a man's heart will bring him down, but a good word rejoices. Peace will flow like a river, as long as you do not allow your heart to harden and fill up like a dam. To worry is to trust in your ability and not rest in the faith of the power and goodness of God.
The Bible is undeniably clear:. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your feelings in Christ Jesus. If you want to live a wonderful, spacious and abundant life like Jesus, especially when life gets difficult, then make the daily decision to believe in God and His Word.
Believe that the promise He has for you is a success as you sow the seeds of faith and patience. Ask God to help you be patient as you go through the pain process and wait for the promises He has for you. Ask Him to fill you with hope and trust, believing that He is a good God who wants good things for you. And ask Him also to grant you the peace promised in His Word.
You must realize the victory that God gives you over shame and learn to walk upright in the Good News of the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ. He gives you every reason to keep your head up, to walk with your head held high, and to refuse shame to be placed upon you.
Live Freely. We can't get rid of the shame that seeks to keep us in self-restriction. Christ broke the power of shame for us: Notice the distinction this verse makes. He does not say that you will not suffer temptations nor say that things can't get ugly. He says there is no condemnation! Condemnation has no claim upon you and your wonderful and abundant life of freedom in Christ.
God wants to break the power of shame over your life. How about you? Do you believe that you have absolutely nothing to be ashamed of because of what Jesus did for you? Are you still condemning yourself? Perhaps you believe God forgave you. Perhaps you accept that people want to forgive you for what you have done to them. But are you willing to allow the grace of God to permeate you to the bone? Life's path is hard as it is; we don't have to make it harder. Don't allow the enemy to provoke you with your past's mistakes.
God doesn't remember them.
Why do you? As you walk the hard path with others as you rely on their strength, stay focused on moving forward. Learning from the past, yes, especially if there were other choices you could have made - this is basic wisdom. But you must also accept the present and understand that you can't change the past.
You must move forward with courage, not rushing into things, but also not get obsessed with past traumas. One of the best ways to go ahead according to God's time is to focus on His kindness. The Bible says: When we are torturing ourselves about what might have happened or what might have been, we lose what God wants to give us as we move on and we also lose what He wants to teach us in the present.
When we are suffering from incessant pain, it is tempting to follow the exact opposite of this exhortation. It is good to focus on positive reports when you are surrounded by negative data.
Do not say that you are focused on God's point of view, when in fact you are looking over your shoulder or looking at your feet. Look forward! Look up! Walk your path of faith with people who will recalibrate your spiritual compass if it loses true north. Go through crises with courage and authority that directs others to the One who has the answers, not the one who has the problems.
Don't forget that God helps you through tribulations. He will deliver you from the present circumstances and redeem you from suffering. One of the best ways in which He accomplishes both results is through His people. When the path gets dark, and you feel like giving up, turn to your brothers and sisters, your fellow believers, your local church, and lean on their strength.
Let them come into your pain and allow them to share a little of what you are going through. This is how we go through the difficult parts of life. This is how we grow. And this is how we lead:. Sometimes we have no choice but to stand and let the "waves" of life, unpredictable circumstances such as illness, death, financial hardship and unexpected loss break upon us. But then we have to assess the damage, fix it, and work it out as much as we can, and so we focus our attention and energies on the goal we're going.
We have to check whether the configuration of our heart is the way God wants us, what He instilled in us and what He wants to develop in our lives. Did you know that your life has a unique roadmap, a purpose all its own, distinct and matchless to any other individual on planet earth? We are all born with God-given potential to leave our own imprint on the world around us.
