Change happens when the pain of staying the same is greater than the pain of change.

Church isn’t a place, it’s a people. Church isn’t an it, it’s an us – Matt Ray

So much truth to this. If the building goes. The church lives on.



BIO

I’ve always had a hard time with coming up with something clever for the BIO line on social media platforms.

I’m not entirely sure why this task has been so troublesome.

Traditionally most use the BIO to establish what they do for a living or to give honor to a significant other. To be honest, I’m happy with my life but I’ve never found it necessary to announce those things in that box. I have chosen a different route, my mission.

I have adapted a mission statement of sorts for my personal life.

Speak Life If I’m not encouraging and choosing words that add value to others I’m missing my God given purpose.

Be Light The greatest talk ever given was by Jesus. He spoke of being a light. My hope is my life would be that. Not because of perfection but imperfection. The light points to significance given to us by God the Creator.

Refresh All If I’m not a joy to be around I’m missing it. It should not be a tax to be my friend. It should be a benefit.

That is my mission. If you have one please let me know what it is!



Giving Up

Giving up isn’t a bad thing. It says “I” can no longer do what “He” can.

I have found when I attempt to take full control of my being, I go off the rails.

Only the Creator can carry our worry.

In Him I find peace and rest.

Give all your worries and cares to God, for he cares about you 1 Peter 5:7



Humility

Humility is not deflecting praise, It’s a life of dependence in the Creator.

From the shore of the ocean is forever, it’s a beautiful dangerous place, music is tied to the sea, born from the struggle, looking for hope, because hope belongs in the dark places.
