We are Sorry

not to judge, but to love...

If formulas replace relationships, if we are trusting in steps, we are not trusting in God. One system words for people, the other against them...If we are preaching morality without Christ, and using war rhetoric to communicate a battle mentally, we are fighting on Satan's side...This battle we are in is a battle against the principalities of darkness, not against people who are different from us...In a war you shoot the enemy, not the hostage. (excerpts from Blue Like Jazz, by Don Miller)

For every time I have failed to stand on the rock for you, I am so very sorry. What do we live for if not to make the world less difficult for each other? George Eliot

Royalty

We must accept that the only chains holding us are the ones we have applied or accepted. The hardest part in shaking them off is the surrender, but it is the key that frees us, allowing us to be shaken by the maker.

Choose to lay aside royalty and wear the sinners crown. Inherit the kingdom. "For freedom Christ has set us free; stand firm therefore, and do not submit again to a yoke of slavery. " Galatians 5:1

Conceived in the womb to be born
First breathe, life is at that moment begun.
Purpose, time, dreams, vision and hope
All of these to be found out as it is shown upon.
Yet knowing that by the waking of the light of the daytime sun
To the nighttime moon of a calming glow,
That much greatness with emerge inside the soul
From the material instincts that will help make it grow.

This soul remaining secure in knowing
That it is the fruit of God’s invention.
Still within the open …

Lost Angeles

i love the questions that 'are' la, the thrill of visiting a city built primarily upon big dreams, extravagant storytelling, healthy ideals, and unleashed imagination.

... so what are you all about?
... what's your story?
... your passion?
... your plan?

A Story to Tell, and To Persue

When I grow up, my dream is to become a philanthropreneur.

In the beginning God created; Part of the creator always lives in the creation, and I feel the stir within.

There is no legacy for who we are to be. No one else is better equipped to play the role of me.

We're designed for the chances we'll see among all shades of reality and we're granted access to the ultimate source of strength and wisdom in our very own Creator.

Until my days are done, may I remember my responsibilities were given to only one.

"When you do a thing, do it with all your might. Put your whole soul into it. Stamp it with your own personality. Be active, be energetic, be enthusiastic and faithful, and you will accomplish your objective. Nothing great was ever achieved without enthusiasm." (Emerson)


After all, it's the least we can do.

The Escape

i miss the city, particularily the sense of escape found where high ambition collides in intersections of interests.

And the strangers. As a tree of the forest is nourished by the crowd surrounding it, the city will always be lush with dreamers, engulfing microcircles.

Culture Driven Life

in this culture driven life we get so distracted/fooled that we think of God as some being long ago, forgetting how active He is in every passing moment of our daily lives. We're in a simulation, and what we give is all we've got.

Unchained, we expose sin in the light and feel God's purification.

Teach me to manage what you have given me, making me productive in the work and the life you have chosen for me now. let my excitement about you promises fill me with energy and enthusiasm and let your spirit spread to the world through me. (diligent hands bring wealth - prov 10.4)
