I couldn't allow this day to pass without telling one of my longtime friends--HAPPY BIRTHDAY! It's been more than 15 years of friendship, and it seems like it's better every year. I'm thankful for his life and his ability to see what others can't. He's a true visionary with a heart of gold and a gift of bringing smiles to people's faces. I hate I'm not home to celebrate with you!, Channing! Enjoy the rest of this day, homie.

...and we got litty 😎😬🇿🇦🕺🏽 #datenight #capetownsouthafrica🇿🇦

This is by far the BEST dining experience I've had since the closing of Woodfire Grill in Atlanta, Georgia. Everything was superb! And their willingness to graciously accommodate our dietary restrictions (vegetarian and pescatarian diets) was remarkable. I'm a sucker for a good tasting menu, and this 14-course meal was enough to fill my insatiable appetite. #reallifewithcl #imperfectfamilyman #datenight #capetownsouthafrica🇿🇦 cc: @heatherllove

Dinner is now LIT...African style. Gosh, I love it here. 🇿🇦 #reallifewithcl #memoriesoverstuff

Me: "Wanna jump?"

Logan: *looks at me out of the corner of his eye* "YES!"
.
.
Me: "Okay, let's see who jumps the furthest?"
.
.
Logan: "Dad, you're gonna lose so bad! .
.
My son did beat me. I'm just glad I have the opportunity to encourage him to jump from places others choose to stand on. Be fearless, son. Be fearless!

Usually, my wife plans a photoshoot every place we travel. Then, I complain about not wanting to do it. I go as far as saying I'm not going to do it. But we all know it's just hot air. After 10 years of being together, she just looks at me and listens to me as I rant on and on. It never fails that I enjoy the pictures after they're taken. You'd think I'd be better by now, but "God is still working on me😎😬🤣." .

Thanks @justin_02 for amazing photos and for your gracious hospitality and service during our stay in Cape Town! You made this picture-taking experience so delightful and sweatless. .

Men of London and Surrounding Areas, I'm hosting a private meet & greet this Thursday at 7pm for any young pastors and Christian leaders looking to build relationship and have edifying conversation. There's a serious need for unity within the Body of Christ, and I'm passionate about building a community of men who are focused on advancing the Gospel message in every marketplace, whether it's social, political, business, musical, etc. If you're an influencer (doesn't have to be a minister), I'd love to meet with you to introduce myself and learn how we can work together to energize our men for the work of Christ. The information is in the flyer. Email me for the location. cc: @themancavesocietylondon @themancavesociety .

And don't forget to register for our FINAL stop of our 2017 Revival Tour. We'll be at Regent Hall, which is in central London, on Friday and Saturday night, respectively. It's going to be an amazing time of worship, community building, and edification. My wife and I look forward to seeing you there! Visit www.lindseyevents.com to register.

Logan: "Dad, what are you doing?"
.
.
Me: "Working on a couple of things. Why?"
.
.
Logan: "Because I want to have 'daddy time'."
.
.
Me: "Okay, you want me to put my laptop away?"
.
.
Logan: "No, I just want to be next to you while I watch my big boy shows."
.
.
Me: <trying to keep it together without crying😩😢😭> "Okay, I want to be close to you, too."

Cheers to making these kids smile👀😐. As they get older the toys become more expensive😢😭. I'll pay anything to get out of this sing-along movie stage though. Trolls, Frozen, Moana, and Gummy Bears have dominated our home. I'm hoping they finally let it go, stop getting back up again, cease from being gummy bears, and stop the feeling. You're welcome. 😎😬🤗 #fatherhood #daditude #imperfectfamilyman #reallifewithcl #joking #notreally

As a father I'm afforded many opportunities, but nothing is as great as the privilege to lift my children high so they can see. I've learned that their view is limited, and that is not their fault. I'm responsible for lifting them high and giving them a perspective that's larger than what they can see. This is purposed to encourage them to explore the world and fulfill a purpose despite their proposed limitations. I don't want them to stand in my shoes; I desire for them to fill their own. I'll just lift them high on my shoulders. They're broad to give them enough room to sit, ponder, and dream. Watch on, son! Dream higher than I did at your age. I'm thankful that God has arrested his heart already, and I'm excited to watch him flourish as I continue my duty of cultivation. #reallifewithcl #imperfectfamilyman #fatherhood #fatherandson #goalsattained

Went 30 miles out to see the African penguins. One of the best parts of traveling are the people. To be immersed in their culture and understand their way of life is eye-opening. It opens your mind to a world that's larger than your immediate circle and the neighborhood you grew up in. To meet people who are content living next to a boulder without all the bells and whistles of modern life is fascinating. Their intellect is astounding seeing that they spend most of their time reading and meditating. The most amazing part is being able to explore this beautiful world with those you love. It's in these moments that we reflect on our assignment from God and dream magnificent dreams that keeps us youthful and constantly pressing to be and do more. The world is what you make of it. It can be a dark, cruel place or a wonderland of excitement and adventure. You can fear exploration and achievement or be enthralled by it. #reallifewithcl #imperfectfamilyman

South Africa and surrounding countries, THANK YOU! Thank you for receiving us like family. My wife and I met so many who traveled from Johannesburg, Pretoria, Botswana, Congo, Nigeria, and so many other countries. We're honored to do this! Tonight was humbling. To think God would use me--a college dropout from the backwoods of the country--to share His Gospel around the world and influence different nations is mind-blowing. And the fact I get to do this with my family is the icing on the cake. God has exceeded our expectations. This entire tour has been by faith. We have zero sponsors, but infinite faith! Faith has been our currency. A year ago, this tour was just a conversation after a time of prayer. For those doubting what God can do, see it for yourself. He's still faithful to His word. If He says go, RUN towards it even if it costs you everything you have. Obedience isn't optional. United Kingdom and surrounding countries, we look forward to seeing y'all next week! #revivaltourcapetown #lindseysrevivaltour #reallifewithcl
