Words Said

Background

There has been so much said in the last few days.

Sometimes it is not quite topical.

It is really just people hijacking issues and wanting something to say.

Whether it is school shooting or whatever else is trending, it really does not matter.

People are angry, frustrated and just wanting to let off.

 

Friendships & Ties

Not having friends, associates, and ties to communities sometimes allows and excuses us to paint with bigger brushes than we otherwise would have.

When we are among friends we sometimes take the liberties we otherwise wouldn’t.

Physical spaces affords us that intimacy, but now sometimes now it is Web Communities.

 

Almost Naivete

We are probably at that point where speaking against someone that people look up to, will cause a bit of rancor.

In as much possible, just don’t to do it.

The stakes are high and will likely only get higher.

 

Words do matter

Words do matter.

  1. Miranda Rights
    •  You have the right to remain silent. Anything you say can and will be used against you in a court of law. You have the right to an attorney. If you cannot afford an attorney, one will be provided for you.
  2. Good Book
    • Gossips
      • Whoever would foster love covers over an offense, but whoever repeats the matter separates close friends. ( Proverbs 17: 9 )
      • Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen. ( Ephesians 4:29 )
      • But let your ‘Yes’ be ‘Yes,’ and your ‘No,’ ‘No.’ For whatever is more than these is from the evil one. ( Matthew 5: 37 )
      • But I say unto you, That every idle word that men shall speak, they shall give account thereof in the day of judgment.
        For by thy words thou shalt be justified, and by thy words thou shalt be condemned. ( Matthew 12:36-37 )
    • Uncareness
      • Whoever does not gather with me scatters. ( Matthew 12:33 )
    • Anger
      • …Therefore each of you must put off falsehood and speak truthfully to his neighbor, for we are members of one another.
        Be angry, yet do not sin.” Do not let the sun set upon your anger,
        and do not give the devil a foothold.…
      • Tremble, and do not sin; Meditate in your heart upon your bed, and be still. Selah. ( Psalm 4:4 )
      • for man’s anger does not bring about the righteousness that God desires. ( James 1:2 )
    • Walk
      • Act worldly of your calling ( Ephesians 4:1 )
    • Heart
      • Out of the abundance of the heart, the mind speaks ( Luke 6:45 )
    •  Doubt
      • an oath given as confirmation is an end of every dispute ( Hebrew 6:16 )

Public Spaces

With difficulties and sometimes headstrongness we come into our public spaces.

And, think that if we say things a certain way, we might make our points.

We sometimes riddle the other side.

 

Gaps

The truth of the matter is that we have gaps.

Some are obvious.

Parenting Gaps

We are experiencing a parenting gap.

And, it translates to economic gap, and within a generation or two into education deficits.

Uncorrected we feel and get comfortable with being who we are, where we live, what we do, and the words we use.

Peoples read into words and and take the viewpoint that “If you don’t care about me, reading from how you speak to or about me, why should I care about you“.

It is vitally important to our conduct how we dissect how much care about us.

If read wrong, our conduct is a bit forced or withdrawn.

 

Role Modeling

I think it is important to step in and help these young men as they are role models, whether they are ill prepared or not.

In too many cases they are all we have.

 

Affords

I hope that life affords you the opportunities to take some words back.  But, more so to care where you did not as much.

To re-arrange things and if unable to, to pray and hope God sends those more able.

 

Work to do….

Just the other day, one young man said

I still have a lot of work to do….

Don’t we all.

There is just too much to do that we ought not to waste “put downs“.

Undeserved put-downs are sometimes just what one needs.

Things said sometimes acts as great reminder and reasons to work harder.

You never run your mouth, and that’s a great quality
you never talking __ that’s something that you never see
Any issue, you just speak about yourself
do you understand all the people that you have helped

Balance

Tim Keller continues to impress me with his ability to balance theology with the burdens of Little Joe and beaten down Johanna.

Scripture

  1. Damon Thompon
    • Faith for a Kairos Moment
      • Model that those that been forgiven much, love much [ Segment 20 ]
        • Therefore, I tell you, . her many sins have been forgiven — as her great love has shown. But whoever has been forgiven little loves little( Luke 7:47 )
      • Without Faith it is impossible to please God
        • By faith Enoch was taken up so that he did not see death. He could not be found, because God had taken him away. For before he was taken, he was commended as one who pleased God.
          And without faith it is impossible to please God, because anyone who approaches Him must believe that He exists and that He rewards those who earnestly seek Him. ( Hebrews 11:5-6 )
      • I got to know God in the Land of The Living
        • The Lord is My Salvation
          …Do not deliver me over to the desire of my adversaries, For false witnesses have risen against me, And such as breathe out violence.
          I would have despaired unless I had believed that I would see the goodness of the LORD In the land of the living.
          Wait for the LORD; Be strong and let your heart take courage; Yes, wait for the LORD.… ( Psalm 27:12-4 )

Here are some of his recent tweets.

Jan 2018

  1. The security of Jesus’ love enables you to need less, and to love more.
  2. The God of the Bible is a God of grace, who is faithful to us even when we are unfaithful to him.
  3. Fastest way to become a Pharisee is to hate Pharisees.
  4. How much doctrinal unity you need to partner with someone depends on what you are partnering with them for.
  5. The only flaws that can enslave you are the ones that you are blind to. Ps. 19
  6. Before we can answer “Who am I?” we must first ask, “Whom or what do I love?” and “Who loves me?”
  7. Our problem is not so much the unanswered questions but the unquestioned answers out there.
  8. Everyone in the world is an evangelist. Even telling someone they can’t proselytise is a form of proselytising.
  9. What is Religion? A set of beliefs that explain what life is all about, who we are and how we should spend our time.
  10. Both secularism and devout faith are growing. What’s going away is the mushy middle of religiosity.
  11. Having a sense of being loved deeply by Christ allows us to forgive when someone wrongs us because we can afford to be generous.
  12. Don’t let success go to your head. Don’t let failure go to your heart.
  13. What does your life say to others about what you believe?
  14. Does the quality of your work become the measure of your worth?
  15. It is one thing to believe in God but it is quite another thing to trust God.
  16. We are always the last to see our own self-absorption.
  17. In the presence of beauty you cease to be the hero in your own story. It is no longer all about you.
  18. Most leading urbanologists estimate that by 2050 the number of people living in cities will exceed 75% worldwide. The Church has not moved into cities at the same rate.
  19. True gospel-humility means I stop connecting every experience, every conversation, with myself.
  20. Living the mission of Jesus means taking your faith into your work and your life and praying for it to change people’s hearts toward God.
  21. This is an important conversation that doesn’t have any easy answers. Good article.
    • Referencing
      • The Atlantic
        • Low-Income Communities Are Struggling to Support Churches
          Link
  22. The most fulfilling life you can have? Stop living to fulfill your own desires and start living to fulfill the needs of your neighbor.
  23. If you care about social justice, you’ll be concerned with those on the margins of society not those with the most social media followers.
  24. If you have money, power, and status today, it is largely due to the century and place in which you were born, to your talents and capacities and health, none of which you earned. In short, all your resources are in the end the gift of God.
  25. Jesus did not abandon us despite all his own suffering. Do you think he would abandon you now in the midst of yours?
  26. Lack of cultural awareness leads to distorted Christian living.
  27. Condemning others while also excusing ourselves is what allows us to hang onto both our self-righteousness AND our sin.
  28. The number one lie Satan tells us is that we can prove ourselves.
  29. “To be loved but not known is superficial. To be known and not loved is our great fear — but to be known and loved, that transforms you.” – @timkellernyc
  30. Our beliefs are formed not only through reason and argument but also through social conditioning. The only way, therefore, to be as thoughtful, balanced, and unprejudiced as possible is to be highly aware of your cultural biases. Are you aware where your beliefs come from?
  31. The more you see your own flaws and sins, the more precious, electrifying, and amazing God’s grace appears to you.
  32. Jesus came not to accrue power. He came to give power up.

Prayer of Intercession – Part 1

    • God raised up prayer warriors
    • It was night there, but Day her
  2. Verses
    • And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the Lord’s people. ( Ephesians 6:18 )
    • Is anyone among you sick? Let him call for the elders of the church, and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord. And the prayer of faith will save the one who is sick, and the Lord will raise him up. And if he has committed sins, he will be forgiven. Therefore, confess your sins to one another and pray for one another, that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous person has great power as it is working. ( James 5:13-16 )
      • Power released in heaven
      • Not you, but the Lord will raise him up
      • If he has committed sins, he will be forgiven
      • Confess your sins to one another and pray for one another
  3. Prayer and authority of Intercessory prayer
  4. Power of life and death is in the tongue
    • The tongue has the power of life and death, and those who love it will eat its fruit. ( Proverbs 18:21 )
  5. Nehemiah
    • Nehemiah Prayer ( Nehemiah 1:4-8 )
      Link
      As soon as I heard these words I sat down and wept and mourned for days, and I continued fasting and praying before the God of heaven.And I said, “O Lord God of heaven, the great and awesome God who keeps covenant and steadfast love with those who love him and keep his commandments,let your ear be attentive and your eyes open, to hear the prayer of your servant that I now pray before you day and night for the people of Israel your servants, confessing the sins of the people of Israel, which we have sinned against you. Even I and my father’s house have sinned.We have acted very corruptly against you and have not kept the commandments, the statutes, and the rules that you commanded your servant Moses.
    • Daniel
      • Daniel’s Prayer for His People ( Daniel 9:3-7 )
        Link
        Then I turned my face to the Lord God, seeking him by prayer and pleas for mercy with fasting and sackcloth and ashes.I prayed to the Lord my God and made confession, saying, “O Lord, the great and awesome God, who keeps covenant and steadfast love with those who love him and keep his commandments,we have sinned and done wrong and acted wickedly and rebelled, turning aside from your commandments and rules.We have not listened to your servants the prophets, who spoke in your name to our kings, our princes, and our fathers, and to all the people of the land.To you, O Lord, belongs righteousness, but to us open shame
      • Daniel’s Prayer for His People ( Daniel 9:17-19 )
        Link
        Now therefore, O our God, listen to the prayer of your servant and to his pleas for mercy, and for your own sake, O Lord, make your face to shine upon your sanctuary, which is desolate.O my God, incline your ear and hear. Open your eyes and see our desolations, and the city that is called by your name. For we do not present our pleas before you because of our righteousness, but because of your great mercy.O Lord, hear; O Lord, forgive. O Lord, pay attention and act. Delay not, for your own sake, O my God, because your city and your people are called by your name.”
      • Gabriel Angelic Visitation
        Daniel’s Prayer for His People ( Daniel 9:20-23 )
        At the beginning of your pleas for mercy a word went out
        , and I have come to tell it to you, for you are greatly loved. Therefore consider the word and understand the vision.

    • Intercession is coming in between
    • Coming in between things

 

Why Jesus Prayed

  1. Jesus Prays on the Mount of Olives ( Luke 22:42-44 )
    Link
    …“Father, if You are willing, take this cup from Me. Yet not My will, but Yours be done.”
    Then an angel from heaven appeared to Him and strengthened Him.
    And in His anguish, He prayed more earnestly, and His sweat became like drops of blood falling to the ground.…
  2. Fellow Workers ( Colossians 4:2-4 )
    Link
    …Devote yourselves to prayer, being watchful and thankful,
    as you pray also for us, that God may open to us a door for the word, so that we may proclaim the mystery of Christ, for which I am in chains.
    Pray that I may declare it clearly, as I should.…
  3. What prayer is not
    • It is not an option
    • It is not an obligation
  4. Struggle
    • I think the reason why we struggle most in prayer is because we do not see results
    • But, that is a different message, for a different day

Put God First – Denzel Washington Motivational & Inspiring Commencement Speech

  1. Put God first
    • Put God first
    • Put God first in everything you do
    • Everything
      • Everything you see in me
      • Everything you think you love in me
      • Everything you think I have accomplished
      • Everything you think I have
        • And, if I have a few things
      • I have, because I have because of the grace of God
    • 40 years ago today
      • March 27th, 1975
      • Just this past March, I was flunking out of college with a 1.7 ( out of 4.0 GPA )
      • I hope none of you can relate
    • Word of Prophecy
      • I was sitting in my mother’s beauty parlor
      • And, there was a lady under the dryer and every time she looked up, I looked up, and she was looking at me
      • And, finally she said, I have a prophecy for you
      • She said give me a pencil, I have a prophecy
        • Boy you are gonna travel the world and speak to millions of people
        • Mind you, I was dropping out of college
        • I was thinking of joining the Army, I did not know what I was gonna do, and she is telling me I am going to speak to millions of people
        • And, I have travelled the world, and spoken to millions of people
      • But, the most important thing
        • is what she told me, what she taught me, has stayed with me since
        • I have being protected, I have been directed, I have been corrected
        • I have kept God in my life and it has kept me humble
        • I did not always stick with him, but he stuck with me
        • So stick with him in everything you do
        • If you think you want to do what I have done, then do what I have done
  2.  Fail Big
    • Dreams without goals are just dreams
      • Have dreams, but have goals
      • Without goals they fume disappointments
    • In order to accomplish goals, you must apply discipline and consistency
    • Working really hard is what successful people do
    • In this text, tweet, tweek filled world, you have to pay more attention
      • Just because you are doing a lot more, does not mean you are getting more done
      • Don’t continue movement with progress
  3. You will never see a UHAUL behind a Hearse
    • I don’t care how much money you make, you can’t take it with you
    • I don’t care how much you have, it is what you do with what you have
    • We all have different talents
    • The most selfish you can do in this world is help someone else
      • Why is it selfish
        • Because of the gratification
        • The goodness that comes to you
        • The good feeling that I get from helping others
        • It is the Joy
        • That is where the joy it is
        • That is where the success is
  4. Finally,  I pray that you place your slippers right under the mattress
    • So that when you wake up in the morning you have to get on your knees to reach them
    • While you are down there, you stay thank you
    • Thank You
      • Thank you for Grace
      • Thank you for Mercy
      • Thank you for Understanding
      • Thank you for Wisdom
      • Thank you for Parents
      • Thank you for Humility
      • Thank you for Prosperity
    • True desire in your Heart is God’s calling that it is already yours
      • Anything you want good, you can have
      • Claim it
      • Reach back and pull someone else up
      • Don’t inspire to make a living, aspire to make a difference

Garth Brooks gushes over latest Denzel Washington movie

  1. Garth Brooks
    • The conversation me and my wife had after watching the movie
      • We think we understand each other
      • I do not understand what goes on in your life, just like you do not understand what goes in mine
      • But, we make all of our arguments based on the fact that we think we do
      • But, it is the tolerance that he speaks of, that forgiveness
      • That second to think, before you strike back is everything
    • The thing we are going to use from now on…
      • Drowning in the Shallow End
    • Love everything you do
