Have you ever sat in a waiting room?
It doesn’t matter what sort of waiting room it is.
A waiting room for a doctors office.
A waiting room for a principles office.
A waiting room for a job interview.
A waiting room for a lawyers office.
All of these waiting rooms bring one thing.
Anxiety as to what is on the other side of that waiting room door.
Anytime we are forced to WAIT, we are forced to lose the facade we once had of control.
The ball is Read more.
It’s a hotter topic than health care reform.
Most people think they have it down.
I know I don’t.
I have a 10, 9, and 7 year old.
So far our deepest conversations have been about “Will it rain in heaven?”, “Can Jesus become invisible?”, and “Why is your tummy so big daddy?”
But I know the conversations will only get deeper.
I would like to know what you would do in this situation.
If you don’t Read more.
I’m releasing a record a week from today.
I’m going to be tweeting about it and Facebooking about it and begging all of you to do the same.
Because I poured blood sweat and tears into this record and during the making of it I almost lost it all.
And while standing on the Read more.
The first time it happened I was standing on stage at Sandals.
We were in the theater at California Baptist University because the gym floors were being redone or something of the sort.
I had stood in front of this family every Sunday for at least 5 years.
Nothing was different.
Just another Sunday.
We were singing Charlie Hall’s Salvation.
It was the 2nd song of the set.
All of a sudden I Read more.
Dreams are fantastic.
They allow us to chase what we feel would be an existence better than the one we currently reside in.
And sometimes, when we finally reach our so called “dreams”, we actually do sip mai tai’s on the beach and are able to breathe a sigh of relief.
Unfortunately, that is not normally the case.
Here is the reason.
When a dream is based solely around YOU and YOUR ability to Read more.
In a society where people are now making art for the sake of fame as opposed to for the sake of art, this is the most refreshing documentary trailer I’ve seen in years.
So many of us are pushed through the funnel of social media to create art for the sake of likes.
I’m sure if she thought she could make a living at it, she would have.
But instead her art died with her.
I Read more.
I, unfortunately, am old enough now to have been in my 20′s when I knew some kids who were 10 or younger who I thought to myself, “I think they may be gay.”
Unfortunately as in I’m old, not that I thought they may be gay.
I actually thought that they were gay. And you think this of some kids and preteens you see as well.
And guess what, 9 out of 9… Read more.
Jesus isn’t impressed with your church logo.
Jesus isn’t impressed with your worship song.
Jesus isn’t impressed with your children’s ministry video.
Jesus isn’t impressed with your last sermon.
Jesus simply loves you.
That is so much better.
If Jesus can be impressed with us then we ultimately need to keep performing…
So keep being awesome at all those things up top.
But don’t expect to impress anyone other than man with those things.
And when you are done impressing the world…
Then sit back and be Read more.
You have a fear.
I WILL personally pray for this fear.
We WILL all pray for that fear.
We WILL pray that God overwhelms you with the unending freedom from it.
We WILL pray for each other in the comment section by replying to each other fears. OK? Post a fear, then pray for someone elses while typing furiously on your keyboard…
So what are you afraid of?
