Don’t give up hope. Never give up hope.
I am proud to be from the south-where tea is sweet and accents are sweeter; summer starts in April; front porches are wide and words are long; mac and cheese is a vegetable; pecan pie is a staple; Y’all is the only proper pronoun; chicken is fried and biscuits come with gravy; everything is darling and someone is always getting their heart blessed.
Can i go back to Africa? Please?
Yep, I got to hang out with him today. Bet you’re jealous. :)
I find my day is dramatically impacted when I wake up with God.
And it’s amazing. The book is about what God expects of us, and the fact that the universal Church has become complacent. We would rather sit safe in our church pews than be forced to face the world’s violence, suffering, and turmoil. But the reality is that we are a called people. We are called to action: to be Christ’s ambassadors to the world. (2 Corinthians 5:20)
Richard Stearns writes, “We are carriers of the gospel— the good news that was meant to change the world. Belief is not enough. Worship is not enough. Personal morality is not enough. And Christian community is not enough. God has always demanded more. When we committed ourselves to following Christ, we also committed to living our lives in such a way that a watching world would catch a glimpse of God’s character— His love, justice, and mercy— through our words, actions, and behavior… God chose us to be His representatives. He called us to go out, to proclaim the “good news”— to be the “good news”— and to change the world. Living out our faith privately was never meant to be an option”
Are you showing God’s character through your words, actions, and behavior?
