Jesus re-post

I don’t mean to brag but I am on Facebook – a lot!

See nothing to brag about there. In fact, I should probably cut back some of my “facebooking” – I love how we’ve turned a social media site into a part of speech.

VERB! That’s what’s happening.

The more time I spend mindlessly scrolling through what my friends from high school did over the weekend and who is seeing what movie the more I am aware of how it is used as a means to express your personal feeling and beliefs. You can freely rail against Liberals, openly assail the Tea Party, support this cause or that, post a picture for an hour to raise awareness for Autism, MS and the need for the BUCS to dump their failing…TEAM.

OK – I wanted to get mine in there too.

Because of some encouraging people that are part of  Jon Acuff’s START Experiment – #STARTEXP, some VERY encouraging people over at Sammy A’s site and – yes you too mom – I decided to post this.  Trying to embrace #alltheawesome while punching my fear in the face – and adding a body blow for good measure!

This is from the first time I took the stage. It’s a short clip. I would love to hear you thoughts.

Editor’s Note* – This morning I am only publishing a short poem titled “untitled” as I am being featured on the site Careless in the Care of God as a guest poster – not like one you’d find in your bedroom, assuming your a teenager still.  You can get to her site at the link above or by clicking here. To get to my post click here or here.

The site belongs to my new friend April Best and It would be great if you check out some of her posts and showed her some comment love while you’re there – please let her know how you found her site – we love that sort of thing. Now, without further ado…

God has made redemption so easy.

Have faith – you’re good. Accept his gift – you’re in. Trust what Jesus did on the cross – you’re solid.

It is no more complicated than that.

Of all the things I look forward to about getting into Heaven – yes I am going to be there and if you’re not sure message me and I will help you – one of the most exciting things for me has got to be the ability to time travel.

This has long been something that man has dreamed of doing. Science fiction books and movies give us a glimpse of what our minds think it might be like – and I don’t think there is one that I don’t like.

Dunns River FallsWe spent the entire afternoon of the third day on our honeymoon in our room. Paying careful attention to every single detail. Holding each other a though our lives depended on it – and in a way they did.

I don’t think we went down for dinner until it was almost too late to eat. I cannot even remember, honestly if we ate – how could we? We were exhausted.

Some time ago, I wrote about how our faith, according to Paul, can be shipwrecked but that I do not believe that means were rendered permanently useless. I believe that God uses that time – if we allow him – to help us grow and to teach us what we need to learn. Obviously, we can be obstinate and miss God’s lesson but that is our doing not his. You can read that post here.

Today, I have the honor and privilege to be guest posting at a terrific site,Sammyadebiyi.com. Sammy’s got a great site. He writes consistently thought provoking posts – I highly recommend you check out his writing while you’re there.

The title of my piece is “Kicking Down the Doors” and can be found HERE or HERE (same link but just one “here” did not seem adequate).

Feel free to leave comments – as always – either here or at Sammy’s.

I’ll be back to my regular schedule next week – I might even post a short poem I have been working tomorrow for Poetry Friday but Monday for SURE!

Have a great weekend and please show Sammy some love by reading and commenting on his stuff his site can be found HERE and HERE 🙂

Question Mark** The following is a question from one of last weeks posts – God Is With Me and the answer I provided. I think the question is common among people looking for their direction, as is this reader. Feel free to respond as you are lead here or on the original post.

I edited the question and answer for this post.
