4 Ways to choose your words wisely.

I think we’ve gotten careless, friend. I mean, we just talk and talk and talk. We send memes and gifs with others’ words because they seem relevant, they make fun of life, and we value the ability to be funny in a sarcastic way. If you listen to how those around you speak, you’ll start to hear things that come up a lot, and these things reveal so much about what’s going on underneath all of the humor, the comment crafting, the culture we wear like a second skin.

This is a really tough topic. We think we can see the choices in front of us, but if you really start to analyze a day in your life and take a moment to think about all that you do, you’ll see that you make choices all of the time without thinking.

A lot the choices that we make without thinking are the choices that come from the reality we live in and the mindset we have. It’s a very tenative, fragile thing. Everyone has a different worldview, a different mindset, a different reality.

Beating the blues

I want to talk about something because I think we need to. And usually, as believers, we don’t. We think we need to have it all together, hiding behind a mask that says everything is fine on the outside, all the while reeling from a dark aching pain in our hearts.  It's common in evangelical circles to think we need to hide our feelings. Hide the sadness, hide the hurt, and hide the depression that is weighing our souls down.  We listen to the lies- it's shameful, it's weakness, it’s selfish. We put on that “happy face” and pretend we can conquer the world, all the while feeling like we want to crawl in a hole by ourselves and cry. Ultimately, we can often find ourselves in places of doubt, protest, abandonment, and despair.

And that humiliation of messing up. But you know what? When I've been in the darkest days of my life, I have that chapter in my heart and I can recite it out loud.
