Car Ads and Relationships

I saw a car advertisement that had a girl that was worried about her parents not socializing enough because they only had 16 friends on Facebook, but she had over 200 friends. While she talked, the scene would flash between her sitting at her computer by herself and her parents out in their car enjoying a party with their 16 friends. Sad state of affairs for people when they think they have a social life based on a number of people that have ‘friended’ them on the computer.

Need to shop? Go online.

Need to donate money? Go online.

Want to farm? Farmville!

Want to play games? We have an app for that.

The only reason anyone socializes any more is because we need money to pay for all the gadgets we want.

Have our gadgets become our task masters?

“My TV works fine, but it’s not big enough.”

“My DVD player plays DVDs well enough, but it’s not a BluRay disc player. Oh, the quality is so wonderful; it’s almost like being there.” Now you have to replace all your DVDs with BluRay discs.

Huh? Why not try ‘being there.’ Can’t get any more real than that.

We get our news from the internet. We don’t talk to people anymore. We have so isolated ourselves we don’t know how to have relationships anymore. We bury our faces in computers, books, video games, chat rooms, and the list goes on.

It’s easy to trash talk someone you don’t know personally. It’s easy to look down on those you don’t have a relationship with. When we can depersonalize people it’s easy to dismiss them and their opinions. When we refuse to talk to people because they don’t agree with what we think that’s NOT love. When you feel you must resort to name calling, you’ve lost any argument or point you may have tried to make. If you want to claim someone is going to hell before you even get to know that person, why should they even listen to you share with them about Jesus.

Ask yourself this, "How did Jesus approach people?" His worst criticisms and references of 'children of the devil' were always directed at religious people. Hmm?

Anyway. Until next time...whenever that will be...Love Jesus, eat cheesecake and listen to some Pink Floyd

Matthew 21:28-31

Matthew 21:28-31

28 "But what do you think? A man had two sons, and he came to the first and said, 'Son, go, work today in my vineyard.'

29 "He answered and said, 'I will not,' but afterward he regretted it and went.

30 "Then he came to the second and said likewise. And he answered and said, 'I [go], sir,' but he did not go.

31 "Which of the two did the will of [his] father?" They said to Him, "The first." Jesus said to them, "Assuredly, I say to you that tax collectors and harlots enter the kingdom of God before you.

I was thinking about this the other day. How many of us say we “will do whatever you ask God.” We make all kinds of claims to righteousness. We don’t smoke. We don’t drink. We go to church. We think we are building up all these brownie points with God. But we don’t do the simple things that Jesus said were the top 2 priorities – “Love God, then love your neighbors.”

We’re so busy trying to ‘prove’ how worthy we are, that we forget that “not by works of righteousness will anyone be justified.” We neglect or ignore those who need to be touched by Jesus, by refusing to touch them. The very people that need Jesus the most are the same people we refuse to have anything to do with because it might make us look bad in the eyes of the religious people.

Jesus didn’t care that he was called the “friend of sinners.” Sinners need him. We need him. If we say that we’ll “go, sir” to work in the vineyard, don’t you think maybe we should?

Be blessed. Be a blessing.

Nearing the end of September. I hate trying to do laid plans and all...
Anyway...I've been working on some thoughts I just need to get them written down and posted here. Hopefully they will actually sound profound.

Know anyone that needs a DJ in the FWB, Destin, Pensacola, Panama City area? Looking for a few more gigs.

Be blessed. Be a blessing.

Nearing the End of August

Only 2 more days in August and I haven't once blogged this month. JEEZ...

There are so many things that pass through my mind over the days...some of them actually shareable...LOL...

Does anyone even wonder what's up with each other? Everyone who's read my posts and whose posts I've read, would we even recognize each other is we past on the street?

There is so much that I should do. There is so much I need to do...but if I don't do it, God will still be on His throne. He will still love me. He will not cast me away from Him. I am not ashamed of the Gospel. Jesus died for my sins, and rose again to justify me before the Father. There is nothing I can do to add to or take away from His great sacrifice. For God so

That is so cool. All I can do is love Him my own imperfect way...

Until next time...Know you are greatly and unconditionally loved by Jesus. Me, I'm not that great, but I am loved.

Blessing and Grace,
Cheesecake, spaghetti, Pink Floyd...Love Jesus above all else.

Nearing the End of July

Fourth of July party in Valparaiso was great. Had a great time. They want me to DJ next year for them. That will be cool.

I am going to try to get back to writing something in here every now and again. I've been having my usual amount of thoughts about things, but not finding the moments to sit and write them here. I've been more busy lately which is good. Better than being bored and unemployed.

Wish I was independently wealthy though. Also wish I had some extra income...anyone know anyone that needs a DJ? LOL...

Well, until next time.

Thinkin' and Drivin'

I was driving home from work today and I was thinking about how a friend of mine, who's a fantastic guitar player, told me he couldn't read music. I was thinking man...Then I started to think about people who can read music. They can play but it seems to have no heart.

That got me to thinking about the people I know that don't have a whole lot of book knowledge about God, but they are some of the most loving people and they have a heart for Jesus. Then I started thinking about people who have all this book knowledge about God, but don't know a thing about love. They consider their "knowledge" their "proof" that they love God more than the next man.

Maybe it's just us as a society that have been conditioned that way. We think those with the letters after their names are the only ones that have anything to share about Jesus. Only they can teach us.

I have a tendency to think a lot sometimes.

Be blessed. Be a blessing.

My Son's CD

My son, for those of you who know I have kids, has just made a CD. Sort of a poet meets modern contemporary in your face type thing.

Those who are interested in a copy can send me an email and I'll be glad to get you information on how you can get a copy. It's interesting stuff.

In My Skin

Crawling into my skin I wander this temporal life as a human...struggling with my humanity while reaching to God. All the while God reaches down to me, to become a man and die for me.
He expresses His great love for me that while I was yet a sinner, Christ died for me.
Love gives of itself. Religion demands that I behave myself. Love just does.
Religion, while telling us Jesus is the Way, then says you don't need Christ because if you follow our religious rules you'll be accepted. Jesus said you're accepted because of what I have done for you because I love you, now love one another.

Good morning to those who read this blog. I wish I had lots more time to actually keep this more up to date. For those who come back every now and then to see if I've posted anything. Thank you. For those who haven't been here in a while. Thank you for visiting me in the past and becoming a follower.
I make no promise that I'll be keeping this up to date. I don't know what tomorrow, or for that matter, what this afternoon will hold. Life can keep one busy. I know I like sharing my comments and thoughts and appreciate any comments people make. I hope I can make you think.
Jesus said to "go and make disciples." The thing I believe about disciples is that a disciple is not dogmatic but teachable.
We are all on a journey. That journey begins when you walk through the Door (John 10:9). Be open to the Spirit of God. Follow His lead. Love. Laugh. Pray. Seek Jesus continually. I don't mean religion either.

Be blessed. Be a blessing.
May the journey be filled with love.
Cheesecake. Pink Floyd. Love Jesus above all else. Ah, Listen to the music.

T is for Transatlantic


S is for Shoot.
Not going to get this A to Z challenge done. Sorry folks. I tried.
Maybe in the next couple of days I'll post the last letters T-Z and my thoughts on them. Life has been busy. Thoughts have been many. Time has been little.

Be blessed. Be a blessing.

R is for Rain

"Rain can ruin your weekend
Or rain can spare your life,
Depending on who you are
Or what your thirst is like." Mark Heard

So many things can be good or bad.

Hope your life is spent in thanksgiving and praise.
For all things work together for the good for those who are the called...
God didn't say all things were good, just that they work for the good.

Be blessed. Be a blessing.

Q is for Questions

I heard a quote once that stated, “A fool has more questions than a wise man has time to answer.”

Basically, the foolish man will keep asking questions regardless of what answers they have been given.

I had a conversation with someone who would always ask me questions about my faith. When I gave him my thoughtful response he would always seem to have a pat comeback. One day he asked me a question and I just simply said, “I don’t know. What do you think?” He then gave me the response that he had planned before I could answer. He was surprised that I responded by saying, “Okay, can I get back to my conversation now?” Since I was talking to someone else when he asked the question.

He said, “I didn’t mean to make you mad.”

I told him he didn’t make me mad, but I knew he didn’t want to hear what I had to say. He just wanted to give me his response. I told him later when he came by my area, if he was right, then our conversations mean nothing and are a waste of time. But If I was right, and I believe that I was and still am, then he is in trouble and that bothered me.

As a Christian we should always be ready to give an answer for this hope that we have. But, we need to be as wise as serpents and as harmless as doves. We need to be discerning because there will come a moment when it is time to brush the dust from our feet and move on. Sometimes it’s best just to walk away from a dog that keeps trying to bite you than to keep trying to pet it.

I don’t believe in “trophy” friendships. “What is a ‘trophy’ friendship?” You may ask. It’s a friendship built on nothing but winning them to your point of view. If they don’t come to your point of view you toss them away and move on to the next ‘trophy.’

I believe in building relationships, but relationships need to be based on love. Romans 12:9 “Let love be without hypocrisy. Abhor what is evil. Cling to what is good.”

The guy I mentioned at the beginning of this? We are still friends. He may not agree with me, but he knows I love him and would do what I can to help him.

Be blessed. Be a blessing

P is for Perfect

There is none righteous. No, not one.

Nobody's perfect except God. So don't feel so righteous.

Those who like to use Romans to condemn groups of people by using select verses need to read all of Romans. Paul condemns everyone. We are all guilty and in need of Jesus' saving grace.

As Paul would say, "While we were yet sinners, Christ died for us." Romans 5:8

N is for Nonsense

Before I take you on my small road trip here let me give you the definition that I'm using.

Nonsense...(from #5) "
anything of trifling importance or of little or no use."

How many of us have gotten caught up in the whole "golden calf" frame of mind? In order to love our families we must 'give them the best of everything.' How many have lost their family or friends chasing the "American Dream?" How many in the body of Christ have equated riches and fame with blessings from God?

Jesus said we can't serve God and money. Sometimes what God desires from us goes against monetary gain.

We sometimes defend our selfishness as some sort of "right."

I will let you know, I have just as much of a problem with people who think that they have a "right" to take from the rich to distribute to who they think deserve it. We are told that if we don't work we don't eat. But, we are also told to feed those who are hungry, clothe those who are naked, give drink to the thirsty. This is all a part of love. Jesus didn't tell us to take from some people to give to others. He basically wanted us, out of love for each other, to take care of each other.

Some people in politics like to think of themselves as Robin Hood. They think they are taking from the rich to give to the poor. What exactly did the legend known as Robin Hood do? He took from a oppressive over taxing government money taken from the people and gave it back to the people. Do I endorse stealing? No way.

I believe in helping others. It is what God wants. It's not the government's job. It's everyone of us in Christ's job. But, if we consider it our "Christian duty" then we are doing it for the wrong reason.

Love just does. Everything else is nonsense.

Be blessed. Be a blessing.

M is for Mature

You ever see those movies where they say "For Mature Audiences?" Most of the time the characters are acting anything but mature.

How about "Mature Language." That's a good one.

Let's see. What is mature language. Uh...commitment. Sobriety. Moderation. Control. Faithfulness. Love. Kindness.

Some movies with the "Mature Language" just remind me of kids who just learn a bad word that will "shock" their parents so they use it a lot. Yeah, right, really mature.

I guess maybe I'm just God fashioned. Perfect? No. Loving? Try to be. Forgiven? Definitely.

Be blessed. Be a blessing.

L is for Love...of course...

I Corinthians 13:13

“Now abide these three faith, hope and love; but the greatest of these is love.”

He who says he loves God but hates his brother is a liar.

Love God. Love your neighbor.

As I have loved you. Love each other.

If I said that I was sad/would you cheer me up?
If I said that i was glad/would you raise your cup?
If I said that I was lonely/would you spend the day?
If I said the I was bored/would you want to play?
If I said that I was hurting/would you share my pain?
If I said that I was broke/would you share your gain?
Would you love me?
Do I think there is life on other planets? I don’t know. But how does that help me love you? – Glen McClead…aka DJ GlenMC

K is for Kinetic Energy

Kinetic Energy...what is it?
Heck if I know.
But it starts with K and I got that letter taken care of for the day.
Wish I could see TobyMac. He's playing here tonight. I saw him when he was early in his career with DC Talk. (That has nothing to do with Kinetic Energy btw)

So, anyway....Kinetic on the link. It will take you to a wikipedia reference to Kinetic energy so maybe you let me get back to goofy off and stop asking me about kinetic energy.

J is for Jesus

Misunderstood. Misrepresented. Misapplied.
Jesus is considered a controversial figure of history. Others claim he never existed. He's had profound effects on people. He's been used to manipulate people. He has changed people. He's changed my heart and life. Am I perfect? Nope.
What do I believe? I believe that Jesus came to earth, lived as a man. Gave His life for mine to make me acceptable to the Father so I don't have to try and be perfect. He was perfect for me. Does that mean I can be willfully hateful? Nope. Like one of my posts the other day says, "If you truly believed like I do" you wouldn't think like that. Grace is such an amazing thing.

"For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, so that whosoever believes in Him shall not perish but have everlasting life."

"While we were yet sinners, Christ died for us." You and me.

Be blessed. Be a blessing.

I is for Innocent

There is none righteous, no not one.
Sarah McLachlin once sang, "We are born innocent..."
I think not.
You don't have to teach a child how to lie.
"Did you do that?"
"Who did it?"
"I don't know."
Our souls from the day we are born are stained. But I know the Stain Remover.
I know what washes whiter than snow.
He suffered, bled and died for us and He rose again to justify us.
Not by my works. By by God's grace through faith in Jesus Christ. The Ultimate Stain Remove. Once and for all.

Be blessed. Be a blessing
Eat cheesecake. Listen to some Pink Floyd...maybe Wish You Were Here...

H is for Hope

One of the definitions of hope is “to look forward to with desire and reasonable confidence.”

One of the most recognizable chapters in the Bible, 1st Corinthians 13, ends with the following verse, (13) “And now abide faith, hope, love, these three; but the greatest of these is love.”

Some time ago I wrote one of my little ramblings on the verse about faith, hope and love. My emphasis was on the last part of the verse that states, “But the greatest of these is love.”

Right now I’m going to focus on hope. Why? Because H is for Hope. But I have to do a little bit on the other two words. Faith is what saves us. Who we put our faith in is what saves us. Work doesn’t save us. Words don’t save us. Who do you REALLY put your faith in? I believe I am saved by grace through faith in Jesus Christ. Not by works. Religious people have problems with grace. They like to talk about it, but their attitudes reflect a view of “works.”

My pastor the other day told a story about 2 pastors that were riding horses. One was legalistic and the other was discussing grace. The legalistic pastor after a bit of discussion said, “Well, if I believed like you do, I would just take it upon myself to knock you out and take your horse for myself and not worry about the consequences.”

The other pastor looked at him and said, “If you REALLY believed like I do, that thought would never enter your mind.”

I believe that when you truly put your faith is Jesus you do gain hope and your life becomes guided by love. People can be religious and never know love. Religion says, “you must do these things or god will not accept you.”

God says, “I love you so much, trust me.” I believe in Jesus. This gives me hope and my hope is guided by love. I have hope because I know that there is more to this life. I know that He has prepared a place for me. I know that if I die today, I have a tomorrow. Hope sustains me in times of trouble. Love guides me and gives me hope.

There is so much more that I can write on this subject, but I will leave you with this thought. If God is love, and Jesus is God incarnate, then Jesus must be the embodiment of Love. Should we not trust Him to reveal to us how to love each other?

Be blessed. Be a blessing.
