Sound the Alarm!

We need more people who will sound the alarm!  
Far too often, people want to play peacemaker, but have no desire to stand for what is right.  I have heard the saying too much, "I just want everyone to get along and I feel it is my role to help that to happen."  Now, while I agree in being a peacemaker when it is possible, there are also times that it is impossible. There are times that you have to stand up and say, WE HAVE A PROBLEM!  There is an issue that MUST be addressed.  When peace is possible and not detrimental, choose peace, but don't just choose peace because you are not willing to fight for what is right. 

If you You have heard the old saying, you cannot yell fire in a crowded movie theater and not face consequences if it is a lie.  But, what if there is a fire?   Would you sit there and say nothing?  Would you say, I want people to just get along and enjoy there movie?   Of course not!  Well, unless you are a sociopath!    No, anyone in their right mind is g…

Can We Just Be Real?

You will have to forgive me because I am about to get on a soapbox.  Social media has frankly just ruined us.  No, you know I love social media, but the filter that it is run through has ruined us.  We just have to be perfect now.   Want proof?  Let me share with you.  Now, I know this is a joke, but it is the truth as well. 
Why do I use this as an example?  Because let's be honest, no little child, unless pressured by parents would choose the outfit on the left.  They want to be messy, play, be comfortable, and all sorts of things, but we feel so pressured as a society to be perfect for the camera that we have ALL stopped being real.   Everything in life must be Instagram worthy and it is making us ALL depressed.  
LIFE IS MESSY!  LIFE IS NOT PERFECT!   LIFE IS NOT ALWAYS CAMERA WORTHY!
Stop pressuring yourself to make every occasion look perfect.  Stop making yourself feel like every Birthday Party, Baby Reveal, Engagement Photo, and the rest of life's occasions needs to b…

Standing at the Precipice

All of us who know Christ are standing at the edge of something big!  Why?  Because of the fact that we are indwelled by the Spirit of God and empowered by Him.  The big thing is different for each of us and the biggest thing that we are standing on the edge of is an eternity with Him.  But the big does not have to wait for eternity.  There are big things that Gd wants to do in our life now.  So what is holding us back?  The truth is it is our own fears and insecurities coupled with the desire to please others rather than Christ.  Far too often we allow the opinions and desires of other people to dictate what we will do for Christ rather than Christ himself.  You takes those opinions and then mash them together in the blender of life with our predicting fears and it is a recipe for a life full of doing NOTHING!   God desires to do exceptionally great things in our lives.   He takes us to the edge of a precipice, shows us the wonder out things He has made, extends His hand, and says “…

42 All the believers devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching, and to fellowship, and to sharing in meals (including the Lord’s Supper[i]), and to prayer. 43 A deep sense of awe came over them all, and the apostles performed many miraculous signs and wonders.44 And all the believers met together in one place and shared everything they had.45 They sold their property and possessions and shared the money with those in need.46 They worshiped together at the Temple each day, met in homes for the Lord’s Supper, and shared their meals with great joy and generosity[j]—47 all the while praising God and enjoying the goodwill of all the people. And each day the Lord added to their fellowship those who were being saved.
