What the World Needs Now

Posted by: | Comments (4)

DSC02017"We are called to reach people who need to see some humanity.” This comment by a friend of mine resonated with my heart.  Let me explain.

Somehow the church of the living God has adapted a mindset that encourages hypocrisy in our members.  We have become a culture of people who are unwilling to be real. We are afraid to take off our religious masks. We have the sneaky suspicion that to do so would mean being judged by our church and our “friends”.

Mentoring Relationships

Posted by: | Comments (0)

The following thoughts on mentoring are from a devotional by Richard Rohr. I wanted to share this with you, my dear friends.

To be around your mentor is to be near the fire.  A fire does two things.  It warms you, but it also burns you.  If you don’t allow your mentor to burn you once in a while—if you’re not willing to bear a little offense to your ego and to be stretched beyond your comfort zone—then it’s not a mentor relationship from your side.

But a mentor also warms you.  They excite you.  They fill you with the curiosity, the adventure, the possibility and the hope that you can be more of a human being.  This is the thrilling part.  This warmth gives you a sense of your true self—of your best self.  That’s what you want.  You want your soul to grow greater and your ego to grow smaller.

I recently cited the following quote on my Facebook status: Those who love you are not fooled by mistakes you have made or dark images you hold about yourself. They remember your beauty when you feel ugly; your wholeness when you are broken; your innocence when you feel guilty; your purpose when you are confused.

Trusting God with Your Pain

Posted by: | Comments (4)

tearsFor the last couple of days, I’ve found myself singing, humming, and meditating on the words of Worth it All by Rita Springer. As I’ve thought on the message of the song, I keep pondering on the words, “You hold on to all my pain, with it You are pulling me closer, and pulling me into Your ways.”
