In a Pit with a Lion on a Snowy Day
How to Survive and Thrive When Opportunity Roars
Your greatest regret at the end of your life will be the lions you didn't chase. You will look back longingly on risks not taken, opportunities not seized, and dreams not pursued. Stop running away from what scares you most and start chasing the God-ordained opportunities that cross your path. In a Pit with a Lion on a Snowy Day is inspired by one of the most obscure yet courageous acts recorded in Scripture, a blessed and audacious act that left no regrets: “Benaiah chased a lion down into a pit. Then, despite the snow and slippery ground, he caught the lion and killed it” (2 Samuel 23:20 -21). Unleash the lion chaser within!
What if the life you really want, and the future God wants for you, is hiding right now in your biggest problem, your worst failure…your greatest fear?
Story Behind the Book
“Our best days often start out as our worst days. And our greatest opportunities are often disguised as our biggest problems. You can land in a pit with a lion on a snowy day, and it will seem like the end of the road. But God is in the recycling business. He recycles past experiences and uses them to prepare us for future opportunities. That is the story of my life. And that is the story of your life. Look in the rearview mirror long enough and you’ll see that God has purposely positioned you everywhere you’ve been—even when it seemed you’d taken a wrong turn.”
I needed this
This book was a Godsend to me at this time. I’m sure I’ll need to read it again soon, and then again. I have so many highlights and notes. Thank you for sharing your dreams and inspiring us to dream bigger and to persevere through the years it takes for God to manifest our dreams in His perfect time.
In the Pit
Mark’s writing inspires and teaches you to look for God’s work in your life. He provides clear historical examples and personal testimonies of how to access God’s anointing and walk with God. I now delight in watching God walk before me opening closed doors and multiplying the work of my hands.
