"I think we emphasize sin so much that it makes us paralyzed, and glorify struggle so much that it makes us terrified, and de-emphasize the fact that we have been sterilized from our own lives and thus we gotta snap out of it. We ain't in no straight-jacket. We free! When Jesus died in our lives, something strange happened. He gave us power. Yeah I know that we sinners, but since He rose He's renewing the image of God in us."
Trying to figure out how to love when it doesn’t seem necessary, when it is otherwise illogical, when you get nothing back, when it hurts, when it sucks… I could go on. I’m gonna be leaning on the Lord for this one all my days.
Seriously? I hate it when the person who causes all these issues tries to cover his tracks and look like the good guy. If it weren’t for you, I wouldn’t be in this predicament to begin with! No. You are not the hero in this situation, you’re the instigator. And no, I will not let you feel like you’re the good guy here. Deuces.
It doesn’t work. In fact, it kinda sucks. It’s confusing and frustrating and annoying. #workproblems
First drive in Dorchester: successful. Would I do it again? Heck yes.
And everyone turns around like
“What was that?”
This is how we worship in Costa Rica! Honestly, I miss the genuine excitement and emotion we expressed in worship as individuals, but corporately as well. Everyone was involved and everyone was on their feet! In no way am I saying the is the only way to worship and all other forms are illegitimate. All I’m saying is this was legit a fiesta, and it was so true and honest!

Kickin’ it with my girls in Coeur d’Alene, Idaho!
Is it just me, or is responsibility something that my generation is lacking? People are not willing to accept responsibility for anything. If they’ve been given something to do, they need to buckle down and do it. Straight up. They are too soft and too weak. They need to understand that life is not handed to them on a silver platter, but that they actually have to work for things. Life with mom and dad’s checkbook is not reality. What can we do about this? We need to step up and take responsibility, and it starts with the little things. #getmeouttahere
