Drop Your Anchor

It’s been a minute my friends! I know some of you may have thought I had thrown in the towel. Nope! I just had to regroup. The last few weeks of 2014 were chaotic. Not so much in my personal life but in the world that I woke up to everyday. My mind just couldn’t settle on one thing. I was angry about the injustices and feeling helpless in it all. I was disappointed in the faith community that I hold in high regard and want to see as leaders beyond the pulpit. I was distracted by my disappointments of not meeting certain personal goals. On top of that I had worries about family and trying to close out the year with a bang while still planning for the new one staring me in the face. I had so much to talk about and absolutely no idea what to say. I know that sounds weird but one thing that you will always get when you read my blog is transparency. The last few Tuesdays of 2014 I felt pressure to keep up with my perfect record of never missing a week. I felt the need to just write something but when I settled myself, I realized that I needed a break. I needed to clear my head, regroup, refocus and just take a breath. This blog has never been stressful before and I was determined not to let it become that way so I stepped away for a bit BUT here I am, back at it for the first Tuesday of 2015 and it’s GO TIME!!

anchorSo many people inspired this post today. I truly could write about a multitude of topics but today it’s all about “commitment.” I’m not even talking about New Year’s Resolutions. Never been interested in those. I’m talking about those things that God placed in your heart years ago. There are dreams and visions that we have carried around for years and have either never put our all into making them our reality or have never even attempted because of fear and excuses. I imagine a lot of us look like wandering ships sailing across waters too afraid to drop our anchors. The purpose of an anchor is to hold a ship in its set place. Even when the engine is not in use, without an anchor, the ship can be moved from its set place by the motion of the water. The only real security that ship has from not getting off course while it’s not in motion is its anchor. The anchor represents commitment. Where is your anchor this year?

Finding My Set Place: “Psalm 119:89-96″ – August 12, 2007

At this point in my life’s journey, there are many uncertain areas. So many directions I could go but fear of failing and losing everything takes its hold and I stand still. It’s like I’m paralyzed sometimes. So on this journey of self-discovery, I often get into His presence to find comfort, peace, and direction.

Searching for My Set Place: Entry 1 – July 8, 2007

Lessons from July 8, 2007

Today marks the beginning of my journals that will document my quest to find my set place. Follow me on this journey as I seek out the wisdom of God from lessons past to guide me on the journey of self discovery and purpose. I vow to openly and honestly share my thoughts and insights as I study each lesson and find direction. Living this journey out loud gives me the accountability I need to stay committed to this process while hopefully impacting lives across the globe. (If you’re not sure what the concept is for my new entries, check out my previous entry “My Set Place.”) … So let the journey begin… Sunday, July 8, 2007 Continue reading “Searching for My Set Place: Entry 1 – July 8, 2007”

Freedom of Faith

Has anyone ever asked you why you are Christian? Why do you believe in Jesus Christ? If so, what was your answer?… and if you’ve never been asked that, what would your answer be? I’m going to go out on a limb and make a generalization (something I rarely do) and say that a vast majority of Christians never really had to choose their faith. Without having done an ounce of research I’d say that many of us were brought up in the church from the time we were babies. Others may have known about church but were not necessarily considered church- goers. None-the-less, for many of us it has been engrained in us that Jesus is Lord whether you live by the Word or not.
