forgive and forget but don't forget why you're here

if you don't know me very well, i pretty much grew up in the church. going church is part of my system. there are weeks that if i don't go, i don't function as well as i normally do...and would really feel awkward about it. going to church is something that my insides would, believe it or not, crave.

i had a quite rough night at church last night, duty wise. lots of miscommunication was going on between me and the coordinators. stuff that they should've informed me of and didn't. it got me really upset...and pissy! i will not bore you with the details. keep reading...

they asked me ON THE SPOT to do the benediction song since i already have a song prepared anyways. bleh. i sang this song...

i was still in a pissy mood when i started singing. when i got the chorus part, my brain went into multitask mode. in my head i was like "hold on. what am i doing? i am not up here singing for my glory. i'm up here because of Him. this song needs to be delivered to inspire souls."

after the service, two people, that i don't know, came up to me and told me how much it has become a blessing for them to hear the song. it blew my mind. that DOES NOT happen to me a lot.

"be strong in the Lord and never give up hope
you're gonna do great things, I already know
God's got His hand on you so don't live life in fear.
forgive and forget but don't forget why you're here."

i forgot to be inspired by the words that were coming out of my mouth. He sure does have a funny way of teaching us a lesson. He has never spoken to me like this. NEVAAARRR! it was as if He was telling me "hey, mm. what's with the attitude? there's is someone out there who needs to hear this message. i've chosen you to carry this out to that person. you've been asking for a purpose. well here it is." it is refreshing to be reminded of what i already know in the most awesome-est way.

be a blessing even if the water is neck deep. who knows who's life you'll touch today?

philippians 1:6 "there has never been the slightest doubt in my mind that the God who started this great work in you would keep at it and bring it to a flourishing finish on the very day Christ returns."

not an insult

be true to yourself no matter what. that's the only thing that matters. do not succumb to people's judgment. if they are not feeling you, so what? you will never compromise your being you just to fit in. trust me, there are people who will always love you for who you are. surround yourself with them.

being different is awesome.

10 Biblical Truths That Shaped Worldviews

In a generation marked by relativism the public arena is filled with differing views on the largest issues of our time. The primary source from which we draw our worldview defines where we stand and why. The following are 10 biblical truths that shape my worldview:

1. Every human being has innate dignity: Genesis 1:27 "So God created man in His own image."

2. Life is to be valued from the womb: Psalm 139:13 "You knit me together in my mother's womb."

3. A nation that honors God will prosper but a nation that turns its back on God will not: Proverbs 14:34 "Righteousness exalts a nation, but sin is a disgrace to any people."

4. Image without character comes up short: I Samuel 16:7 "Man looks at the outward appearance but the Lord looks at the heart."

5. We make an eternal investment when we tend to the poor: Proverbs 19:17 "One who is gracious to a poor man lends to the Lord, and He will repay him for his good deeds."

6. We are nurturing God's handiwork when we protect the earth: Genesis 1:1 "In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth."

7. We must stand against injustice wherever it is found: Amos 5:15 "Hate evil, and love good and establish justice."

8. Possessions alone will never satisfy the heart of man: Luke 12:15 " on guard against all kinds of greed; a man's life does not consist in the abundance of his possessions."

9. Love has the power to heal a broken world: John 3:16 "For God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life."

10. Death is not the final word: Isaiah 25:8 "He will swallow up death for all time."

The Scriptures tell us that it is in seeking first the Kingdom of God that we properly prioritize everything else. The issues that we face on a global and personal level demand that our convictions and actions be based in something more than subjectivity. The question that will define us more than any other is upon what do we base our worldview.
