Wow. A friend of mine shared this on facebook and I had to share it. What a great message! One of my favorite lines:

So how bout you start studying her heart and stop studying her booty or maybe invest the same amount of time in her as you do Call of Duty!

 

Watched this video recently and just felt like I needed to share it.  I know so many people who say they are “Christians” but do not live like it.  I wish everyone could understand how awesome is it to really LOVE JESUS simply because you KNOW how much HE LOVES YOU.  

So if your reading this and you think is my faith real or am I walking with Jesus then watch this video and ask yourself if you could respond like this in a situation like this.  This is the story of Zac Smith from NewSpring Church in South Carolina and how he is doing with his battle with cancer.  grab a tissue

Loved reading this post by Perry over on his blog.

My favorite one:

“BIG DEAL!  So this Jesus guy fed over 5,000 men with five loaves and two pieces of fish.  Seems to me like He is just into trying to do entertaining things to get people’s attention rather than teaching them anything of substance.”

If you have ever made a mistake and needed forgiveness then you need to watch this and start reading potsc.com.  So just so we are clear, that means you. Yes you have made a mistake at some point in your life. People of the Second Chance is all about grace and forgiveness.  Take for example Michael Vick.  What is your first thought of him when you hear his name? Do you want him to succeed in the NFL or because he made a stupid choice he should not succeed at anything?

We as Christians are supposed to be Christ like. That’s what we do we should do.  Christ forgave. PERIOD!  He is the one true Judge knowing our motives when we do things.  Yet He forgives.  Jesus said “By this all men will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another” (John 13:35 NIV)  Do you do more loving or more judging?

Watch this video if you can handle it. If your heart doesn’t break and you don’t feel motivated to do something then I’d check the status of your heart. I am praying that one day our culture will wake up to all the easily curable problems humans are facing all over this world and will step it up.  I am thankful for Bono and his work and others who have great influence and are using it for something other than making money.

I realized this morning when having my quiet time that today is April 20th. It made me think that 12 or 13 years ago I was celebrating today’s date. April 20th = 4/20 or 4:20. ATTN: parents, student workers and others. Do you know what 420 means? Read here if you do not. 12 years ago on this date I was in High School organizing a big camp out/party disguised as a Interact Club Community Clean Up Project.

I read this morning in my quiet time something that made me think about my past as well. “Three things amaze me, no, four things I’ll never understand—… why adolescents act the way they do.” Proverbs 30:18,19 Yesterday Jimmie talked about how if you really accepted Christ into your life then you WILL see a change in your life. (click that link, it is AWESOME) He is too big and too awesome to not influence change in your life. He said that you ought to be able to look back and see how you have changed.

Well today is a reminder of how I have changed. I used to be a druggie and all I focused on was drugs, partying and girls. Now I focus on God, partying (the good/non-destructive kind) and girls, the 3 in my life that God has given me. My wife, Alisha and my two girls, Mia and Tyra.

I don’t know what your struggling with letting go of today or really giving to God, but I do know this. “Give all your worries and cares to God, for he cares about you.” 1 Peter 5:7 I promise that if you let Him have control you won’t be disappointed.

Watch this (skip music if you want – but Highway to Hell is awesome) if you want to know more about this or ask me.
