This page has been a work in progress. I recently took down everything I had on this page.
April 2014 I crafted a summary of my life to give you a better picture of me and where some inspiration comes. It is always a life to be lived. It is one big invitation.
Yeah I have been down, so deep and so lost in darkness. I am working for You. I am getting it together. Mark One( The Living Bible) says,
“3 “This messenger will live out in the barren wilderness,” Isaiah said,[b]“and will proclaim that everyone must straighten out his life to be ready for the Lord’s arrival.”
Our lives are up against challenges. I am 30 years old and in November I will be 31. I think I will say I am 30 as long as I can. It has been a life changing year of life. I am convinced of things I have always known, but now I think I am starting to see.
That one famous Henry David Guy said, “It is not what you look at, it is what you see.”
Christ has been my vision. Often, on this blog I have delved into film reviews and pop culture references. I have been rather obsessed with film and shows. I have spent hours and hours editing videos and doing a very simple task. I have loved to live and to recreate my experiences..that has been an honor.
This ABOUT page is about whatever you want to call it…just kidding.
I am about the Gospel. It has ruined me. It has carved something deep inside of me. It has collided with my problems. It has leveled me out. It has kept me up. It has helped me sleep. It has expanded my heart to love.
I have been more raw and more real on this blog this past year of life then ever before. I do need to be careful what I say and how I process. Life is hard. Life brings confusion. Life brings unfair to the table and takes away the table. Life doesn’t give you a break sometimes.
Life is also where we are. We are here. And that is no accident or mistake. Our purpose goes way beyond just surviving, yet anything that snaps us out of self-pity is a gift. You have spent a lot of time searching. You don’t know the answer. You want them though.
You have a lot of questions and conflict is the source of any great story. So, don’t stop. Don’t stop digging. You stopped digging cause it makes you feel misunderstood. Well maybe those people aren’t your friends anyway. I am here to tell you: don’t quit.
The RUCKUS is any loud noise you can make. It is any loud COMMOTION you can partake in. The loudest NOISE you can trumpet is LOVE. Love is a noise and without God’s version its just an echo.
God’s presence is this beautiful and terrifying thing. Not a unhealthy fear where you cower in something false and demonic. The kind of Godly fear that has been threaded through every book of the bible and that leaves us breathless.
Yeah, it is going down. Heaven that is. That loud sound from up above. The ripping open of Heaven. That is the loud noise we await!
You got to live. You got to stop running away from the present moment. I know it hurts. You got those lips that are cracked. You got some stress. Its causing you to go a little crazy, but crazy will remain. You need some PEACE. You don’t need SAFETY. You need some RISK.
You got to read HIS words in RED. You got to look up to HEAVEN. You got to make a ear cleansing lead to HEARING His VOICE. You are real close to getting close.
It is still a page in progress, and so are YOU, and so am I.
