6:34 PMTravisAgnew – 30 minutes before Town Hall for Hope. People were outside our doors waiting before 7:00. If you can’t come, I will be blogging some thoughts in real time to follow the event.
6:47 PMTravisAgnew –
6:56 PMTravisAgnew – I love Craig Groeschel. He’s the real deal.
7:01 PMTravisAgnew – Sigh…it’s working…now it’s time for Dave to bring it.
7:07 PMTravisAgnew – Even when the economy is in trouble, people who have lived wise financially are not stressed out.
7:10 PMTravisAgnew – As a Christian, I had encountered a spirit of fear.
7:10 PMTravisAgnew – Prayer: I talk to my Dad, and it doesn’t freak me out. The fear just left me at that moment and I haven’t been afraid since. Fear is not a fruit of the Spirit.
7:13 PMTravisAgnew – I’m reading a different book than they are reading.
7:17 PMTravisAgnew – I believe you can be sincere and still be wrong.
7:19 PMTravisAgnew – Capitalism is the source of hope for America.
7:19 PMTravisAgnew – We need a value system that cares about its customers.
7:21 PMTravisAgnew – We shouldn’t bail you out. You’re freaking lame.
7:22 PMTravisAgnew – The truth is you’re grownups, you don’t need a keeper or a caretaker, and this is how life works. It’s not fair. We’ve got to go back to some basics. We need to love people enough to allow them to fail.
7:22 PMTravisAgnew – Failure if it is chasing you will lead you to excellence.
7:23 PMTravisAgnew – If there’s no chance you can fail, you will never be at your best…Failure needs to be an option.
7:23 PMTravisAgnew – Your raise is effective when you are.
7:24 PMTravisAgnew – Success is merely a pile of failures you are standing on. -John Maxwell
7:26 PMTravisAgnew – This word is now politically incorrect – the word is “no.” It will set you free.
7:26 PMTravisAgnew – No, you can’t buy a house. You’re freaking broke.
7:27 PMTravisAgnew – We need to go back to taking personal responsibility in this country.
7:29 PMTravisAgnew – Take responsibility when you cause the mess. Learn your lessons and keep going.
7:29 PMTravisAgnew – Work like it all depends on us, pray like it depends on God.
7:30 PMTravisAgnew – I’m going to pray and hope that my life fixes itself. You can pray while you’re working.
7:31 PMTravisAgnew – The diligent prospers.
7:33 PMTravisAgnew –
7:33 PMTravisAgnew – I hope this is this generation’s Great Depression. That generation learned and gleaned something from the pain.
7:34 PMTravisAgnew – In the Depression, the stock market lost 90%; we’ve only lost 57%.
7:39 PMTravisAgnew – The media is not reporting the good news. Hysteria sells.
7:42 PMTravisAgnew – If you have money to invest in the stock market, it’s like you are at K-Mart and its the blue light special.
7:46 PMTravisAgnew – I’ve got a friend who watches CNN and FOX news all day long, we’re going to have to put him into a rubber room.
7:46 PMTravisAgnew – It is the best time to buy houses.
7:47 PMTravisAgnew –
7:48 PMTravisAgnew – Love it when God shows up and pays off thousand dollars of student loans!
7:48 PMTravisAgnew – Don’t cry, girl. Dave gave you a huge compliment. I know you want to cry, but you are on national TV.
7:50 PMTravisAgnew – Got to love, YouTube. Everyone is a star.
7:51 PMTravisAgnew – I don’t do business with big banks because they possess no soul.
7:55 PMTravisAgnew – I think gold is the Snuggie of investment (quote of the night).
7:57 PMTravisAgnew –
7:59 PMTravisAgnew – I get hate mail for telling people to cut up credit cards. Christian hate mail should be an oxymoron.
7:59 PMTravisAgnew – Learn to think for yourself. We the people are the healing agent for this economy.
8:00 PMTravisAgnew – Elsa has email?!
8:01 PMTravisAgnew – The weak competitors have been driven out of the market.
8:03 PMTravisAgnew – Ummm…Chick-fil.a…
8:04 PMTravisAgnew – Heart stop…oh, Ramsey’s battery went out.
8:06 PMTravisAgnew – Greenwood, Indiana. Ah, man.
8:07 PMTravisAgnew – Good to know every church has sound issues.
8:08 PMTravisAgnew – Probably find some government employee with his hand on the plug.
8:08 PMTravisAgnew – Your most powerful wealth building tool is your income. Steady.
8:09 PMTravisAgnew – My opinion is that unemployment is a symptom of the economy.
8:11 PMTravisAgnew – We might be hiring, but it won’t be you, Eyore.
8:12 PMTravisAgnew – For goodness sake, don’t wait for Washington to save you.
8:13 PMTravisAgnew – I don’t have credit cards. I don’t play with snakes, they bite.
8:14 PMTravisAgnew – I’m not a student of end times things. Those people kind of scare me.
8:14 PMTravisAgnew – Those who plow should do so in hope.
8:15 PMTravisAgnew – Three things to do if you are struggling with your hope:
8:15 PMTravisAgnew – 1. Get up. Take action. Get moving. Even if it doesn’t make sense, at least you are doing something.
8:17 PMTravisAgnew – If you wait for Congress to fix your life, you’re sunk. How good are they at anything? The president can’t fix your life – Republican or Democrat. Its not his job to fix your life even if he thinks it is.
8:18 PMTravisAgnew – 2. Don’t participate in loser talk. If you hang out with losers, you know what you are going to be? A loser!
8:19 PMTravisAgnew – Your income will be within 10% of your closest friends. Some of you are thinking, I need to get new friends.
8:19 PMTravisAgnew – We don’t do missionary dating, you send him back to the pound.
8:20 PMTravisAgnew – I get up every morning and read the Bible and the newspaper to see what both sides are doing. -Zig Ziglar
8:21 PMTravisAgnew – Be careful who you listen to and hang out with.
8:22 PMTravisAgnew – You know, the average millionaire can’t tell you who got thrown off the island.
8:23 PMTravisAgnew – The leader of the organization was the one who served the most.
8:24 PMTravisAgnew – They’re closed because they lost their Jonathan and they blamed it on the economy (that was strong).
8:25 PMTravisAgnew – 3. Learn to give again.
8:26 PMTravisAgnew – If you don’t have money, go serve the homeless. All of a sudden, you’ll get your eyes off your hopelessness.
8:27 PMTravisAgnew – We talk about giving. Americans help people out. We still need to do better because we have so much.
8:27 PMTravisAgnew – I think we, the people, if the church got its act together, I think we could give the government our business. We could take the country over.
8:29 PMTravisAgnew – Hope doesn’t come from Washington. Hope comes from you and me. Hope comes from God.
8:29 PMTravisAgnew – Place your hope in the hope-giving place. The ones there before the foundation of the world, in the nail-scarred hands of Jesus!
