Never Gives Up!

April 14, 2009 at 12:05 pm (Uncategorized) (, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , )

I cried when I watched this video and I just had to share it with you. Everyone has a unique voice, a dream worth living out, a gift worth giving to the world around them. You may know that about yourself but feel like you are standing alone. Or maybe you’ve just lost hope and have given up all together. The truth is that you are not alone and there is someone who hasn’t given up on you. You have a heavenly father who is cheering you on. He isn’t sitting behind the judge’s table waiting for your next mistake – He knows your name, your story, your hurts and your dreams. He made you, all of you, so know this:

success or failure, his love NEVER gives up.

I feel like I’m writing to myself more than anyone else.  I need this truth today and will need it again tomorrow.

What about you, do you ever feel like someone who has been given up on? Or is there anyone in your life who you have stopped believing in?

New Beginning

It’s early Monday morning, one of my favorite times of the week. Everything feels new, but there is a dark side to this new beginning. It’s so easy for me to begin letting the things that I do define who I am. On the days this week that I create or do something that I feel is meaningful, I will feel great about myself. On the days that I struggle and don’t produce much, I will not.

I’m so excited about a new chance to dream and work, a chance to create and plan, but there is the bold truth I must start and end on this week…Nothing we accomplish, nothing someone says, nothing we achieve will define who we are. Love defines me this week, and that same love defines you. Whether you have a week full of success and progress, or a week that feels like failure at every turn, we are loved. That is the truest thing about us this week. We are free to fully go for it this week knowing nothing we do will change that love.

“Nothing can separate us from God’s Love”

I’m writing more to myself than anyone else, this is just so easy for me to forget. What about you, how do you prevent “doing” from defining you?

Stuck at My Job

March 9, 2009 at 5:04 pm (Uncategorized) (, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , )

coffee-loverI sat down to interview our friends Tim & Kristi today. They are packing up their life, including 3 young kids, to move to Northern Iraq in May. They are moving there because they feel called to take the gospel to the Kurdish people. It’s a crazy story! We filmed them today and will be sharing more of their story soon. However I wanted to share one excerpt from our time today that we found to be so moving. Enjoy…

Matt:  “Tim, there are people who think what you and your family are doing is great, but they feel stuck in jobs and situations they don’t want to be in. What would you say to the person working at the “coffee shop”, longing for God to “use” their life?”

Tim:  Life is in Jesus. Not in a place, a thing, or a job. He has representatives and people that he loves all over the place. Without them we have a bunch of people heading overseas and nothing happening here. People in America are dying. They are dying every day. They are walking into the coffee shop dead, and they are walking out dead. People need Jesus. We are Jesus to those people. He is in us and he is in those people working in the coffee shop.”

“I think it begins when we start walking out the door in the morning thinking to ourselves that people are going to meet Jesus today. They are going to fall in love with him and they are not even going to know it.” 

“I worked at a phone company this past year and I had a manager named Matt. Matt loves me because I’ve been kind to him, because I’ve been gracious to him. He loves Jesus – he just doesn’t realize it’s Jesus. I think you can be anywhere and help people fall in love with Jesus before they even realize it.”

Have you ever felt stuck in what seemed to be a situation lacking purpose?
