I’m Sure

It’s a Wednesday morning and it seems that things are uncertain. No more than normal but the difference is all of the bad news a person has to fight through in order to just simply trust. I have talked at length about how trusting is choice and I’m going to elaborate a little more today.

Just like Pastor Byron said a few weeks ago pastors are no different from everyone else when it comes to making choices such as giving financially to God’s work. The same holds true when making choices on who or what to trust. I don’t know about you guys but I’m tired and weary. I’m tired of the election, I’m tired of our economy, I’m tired of the war, I’m just tired of all of the bad news. With that fatigue comes the temptation to look for something immediately to grab hold of to trust. I, just like all of you want something tangible to latch on to. Whether it’s my money, a politician, my health or even a loved one, these things are all temporary and can evaporate from you in an instant. Knowing this or coming to realize this causes consternation and concern unless, unless, I make the difficult choice to trust God.

The choice to trust God is more difficult than you might think. Just because I’m a pastor doesn’t make it any easier than anyone else. What makes this choice more difficult is the fact that God is an intangible in a world where possesions are everything. We are trained to want more things and expect more from people that affect our lives whether that be a politician or even a loved one. So to trust our future to a God who we cannot see or hear or touch is something that doesn’t come natural. Let’s be honest, it’s stinkin’ hard.

So whether you’re a pastor, businessman, powerful, weak, rich or poor, no matter who you are or your station in life it’s a difficult but necessary choice to make. In the difficult times in which we live we really have no other choice to achieve peace in our lives than to trust in Christ. In fact I’m reminded of an awesome hymn (I know you can’t believe I’m actually going to quote a hymn. 🙂 ) that fits the situation we find ourselves in right now.

“In times like these we need a Savior. In times like these we need an anchor. Be very sure, be very sure, your anchor holds and grips the Solid Rock. That Rock is Jesus, He’s the One. That Rock is Jesus the only One. Be very sure, be very sure, your anchor holds an grips the Solid Rock”

So today, again I make the choice to trust God! He’s my anchor and my solid rock and yes, I’m very sure!

It’s Alright

Alright I watched the results from the Florida primary tonight and could say many things about it. Most of you probably don’t know that I have a minor in Political Science so I find this whole election cycle stimulating and interesting. I will not be political on my blog. Therefore you will see no endorsements or hear any recommendations from me. For those of you who know me personally you probably have a good idea where I stand politically. If asked, I will be more than willing and forthcoming with who I am supporting and why. With that being said, I don’t think that this forum is the best place to convince you to vote one way or the other so I am only going to offer this advice. Don’t only vote with your heart and conscience but also vote with your head. Think about it, pray about it and then become informed on the issues and just vote. We live in the greatest country on the Earth and our right to vote, our democracy, is what makes it that way. And which ever way the election might go come November, remember it’ll be alright. God is and will still be on His throne and we are and will still be His children.

Blogging Light

I feel like doing some light blogging this morning. Talking about stuff of no real meaning or significance. Let me just say, that before Barry Leathers talks about MTV’s VMAs last night I will beat him to the punch. Brittney Spears is a total train wreck. I have never seen a poorer lip sync in my life and she needed five times the amount of clothing that she had on. Needless to say after seeing about a minute of her pathetic come back I rolled over and proceeded to try to get some sleep. MTV is a joke and what they produce now is sad. I agree with Justin Timberlake, what has happened to actually showing videos? After all doesn’t MTV stand for “MUSIC TELEVISION”? I don’t think that “The Hills” or “The Real World” or any of their reality TV shows count as music videos?

Number two on my meaningless blogging points this morning. I am glad Fred Thompson has entered the race for President in 08. It would be nice to have another conservative actor in the White House. The last time that happened it was Ronald Reagan. I still look back fondly on those years when I was first becoming politically aware. I know, I know, this now reveals my political bent but who cares? Go Fred!

Number three on my meaningless blogging points. I am glad Apple is giving me back a hundred dollars in store credit for buying my iPhone when they first came out. Although if they didn’t I wouldn’t be too upset. After all isn’t that the price you pay for purchasing the latest technology first? It always comes down in price. Does anyone complain that you can get a DVD player now for twenty bucks when five years ago they were three hundred dollars?

Number four on my meaningless blogging points. NFL football is back and did I even get to watch any games? Just one and it was on Thursday night. But I must say I am proud of my Denver Broncos for pulling it out in the last second of the game and scored one in the “W” column. My fantasy football teams will probably be just as pathetic as last year but it is fun none the less. Go Broncos and welcome back to the fall football season.

Number five and finally for my meaningless blogging points. Congrats to Travis and Sandy for their new SUV. I have always been and will always be a car enthusiast. I love seeing new vehicles and taking in that smell and seeing all the new features and the latest in vehicle technology. Oh yea, congrats to Matt and Monica in their purchase of a new SUV as well. You all made great choices and I hope that your new vehicles will make the drive home in East Orlando traffic just a little more enjoyable. After all, how many hours do people that live in Orlando spend in their cars? Just think about it. You might as well make the commute as pleasant as possible.

Thanks for reading my meaningless blogging points today. I feel refreshed and ready to face the serious stuff now. Just consider today’s blog as “Blogging Light”.
