enlist.  equip.  empower.  engage™.   I remember the day I heard it.  It was January 25, 2009.  I was e4_Logo_2013sitting in a conference just minding my own business, listening to a speaker who was talking about women being warriors.  I instantly “heard” enlist, equip, empower, engage, and I wrote it on an index card that I carried around with me for a really, really, really long time.  I would doodle it, write it, rewrite it, think about it.  And then, one day, I was doodling it in a journal for umpteenth millionth time and I wrote down e4 and drew a circle around it.  I realized that it was a mandate and that it was all about Ephesians 4 and beseeching people to walk worthy of the calling in which they were called.  Within that very week, I walked into our den and the TV was on…it was on a channel we never watch.  I looked up and there was an image of a gastank with e4 on top.  What!?!?!?  I knew in an instant that this mandate was tied to what we were doing in our fueltanks™ and how we were helping people drill down to discover who they really are.  As I began to dig into Ephesians 4 and continue to dig…knowing that I have not even scratched the surface…I love seeing that enlisting, equipping, empowering, and engaging is LOADED in there.  We will be unpacking that in greater detail in coming posts, podcasts, and programs, but suffice it to say it is one of my primary mandates and my heart’s desire is to see you walk forward in that calling so that you can affect change in the world around you as you go, everywhere you go.
