Aftermath of Resurrection

The last time I blogged it was January. Seems like a millennia ago. Time is clipping along at break neck force. So much has already happened in 2014 to make it a ‘fork-in-the road’ sort of year.

I was reading back at my last post on anger and reflecting. I’m going to insult your intelligence and tell you something you already knew: anger is never really about the anger. It’s about what is underneath the manifesting emotion of anger. Probing for the root source is really the issue.

Like so many, I work with very angry youth on a daily basis. I have come to recognize that the root for many is fear – of being alone. A closer look tells the story that most of us are adversely reacting to a world that has told us in a sundry of ways that we are alone. Why is the reaction so strong?  Because we are created to be seen, to belong. The violent reaction to being unseen is protection, and that is precisely what a violent rage does. It pushes people away in order to protect one’s self from a world that has exploited vulnerability and qualified the lie that personal existence here on planet earth does not matter. That you are alone.

The primary fear of mankind being alone is found in the early pages of Genesis. Adam found himself alone…amidst a lot of new life. All that God had created was new, including Adam. Though the landscape was paradise, something was off. Adam saw no one else to reflect back to him what he looked like. He had no mirror image to take this world in with him.

The fear of being alone is powerful, especially when life experience backs it […]

Developing A Lifestyle of Intimacy

Developing a lifestyle of intimacy with God will extrapolate the fingerprint of God within you, revealing whom you are (identity) and what you are called to do (destiny).  The other common thread between us involves an enemy trying to thieve identities, and a Hero that has secured you in Love forever.  The good news is that love always wins, and intimacy retrieves all that has been stolen, heals all wounds, and restores what was once lost.

Western culture often elevates doing over being.  From a performance orientation, this translates into busyness and burnout rather than living from within out of abundance and joy.  The confusion point is that we are known by what we do rather than from being.  A question often posed early in life is, “What do you want to be when you grow up?”  Pin pricking the fountain of desire, childhood dreams begin to emerge.  “I want to be a…firefighter, cowgirl, a professional ball player.”  For a child, adulthood on the distant horizon has a blissfully glistening luster to it.  Oh to “be big” and “all grown up!”  The beauty is that God designed you to be BIG in this world through childlikeness, leaving a wake rippling out from wherever you place your foot.  He created you to be before you do, not vice versa.  To be comes out of desire, whereas to do comes from the hamster wheel of duty.

Many people do not reach their dreams and are left unfulfilled for one reason or another.  Life happens.  Obstacles, trauma, and circumstances elude hope that results in lost desire, buried dreams, and hope deferred.  Perhaps there are no childhood dreams to recall except to survive.  Everyone has a different story but the […]
