Due to the nature of my calling, I go to lots of funerals (at least more than I used to). It's really one of those very interesting and rich yet painful things because you see real people being real about their pain of loss, celebration of a well lived life, grief, real joy, comforting, hurting, etc. I always come away feeling guilty of not redeeming the time...Are we living in such a way that one day, what will be remembered is how much we loved, how much integrity we had, how much we would give to help others? What are you living for..really?

Mad Dog Stare...

This has been on my mind & heart… - Passage Lookup: Isaiah 50:2;

There’s so much God promises to do through us, through a revolution…but do we even care, would we even feel it if He was pulling on our heart? Is our heart so hard and ways so set that we can’t even feel God anymore, much less obey and follow Him? Have we become hard? Do we constantly “Maddog” or “ThousandYardStare” our way through life, so much that we don’t notice all the brokenness around us & in us?

What I need is a changed heart. Ezekiel 11:19-20

So What Now...

This is it...this is what we need, this is what we need to hear, need to do, how we need to live, how to take the next step from being a youth group to being the change:
if my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and will heal their land. -- 2Chronicles 7:14
I've posted some pics...and everything we do up here in the RiotRoom is fun and different and positive, etc. etc....but it doesn't matter if its not changing lives and changing this world, and that's not going to happen until we, as a RiotCrew, or family, and until I spend more time on may face, than my space, more time in prayer to our Father God, than in the lockeroom, more effort being the change, than griping about the lack of it, or just waiting for somebody else "more christiany" to do it. I love ya'll, take this to heart and be the change!
