American Anthem by Norah Jones Lyrics All we’ve been given By those who came before The dream of a nation Where freedom would endure The work and prayers Of centuries Have brought us to this day What shall be our legacy? What will our children say? Let them say of me I was one who believed In sharing the blessings I received Let me know in my heart When my days are through America America I gave my best to you Each generation from the plains To distant shore with the gifts What they were given Were determined To leave more Valiant battles fought together acts of conscience fought alone these are the seeds From which America has grown Let them say of me I was one...

Mission: My Facebook Fast and what God taught me.

Posted by on Sep 16, 2010 in Mission: Get Inspired | 2 comments

p>I broke my fast from facebook today. For 14ish days I took a break from it all. All the status reading. Photo uploading. Status posting. Commenting. Interacting with peeps. And wasting time, filling time and procrastinating with all things Facebook. If you want to know what led me to do the fast CLICK HERE to read my first blog post. There were so many revelations and precious moments in the Lords presence while filling my evenings, awkward silence or car rides seeking Him rather than Facebooking.  Not only did I have more time to spend in the word, worship and prayer but I had such clear focus and loud revelation from God.  You will see some of them unfold in future...

p>(this was auto-posted to twitter and facebook via plugin for wordpress) I feel like I am quitting smoking or something. Cold turkey. Just like that. Cutting something out of my life that I relied on. Relied on it for entertainment, connecting, pass time, fulfillment, outreach, busyness and procrastinating. And today. Nothing. I almost felt lonely.  bored.  anxious. No shakes though ha! And no food cravings! Quitting Facebook affects my routines. (Missed why I quit facebook?  Click Here for the full story) I woke up.  and fought back the routine to login to facebook & twitter. Shower. breakfast. no coffee and facebook. and opened my computer– logged...

Mission: Goodbye Facebook. Taking a break from Social Media and TV. A fast. A focus.

Posted by on Aug 31, 2010 in Mission: Get Inspired | 0 comments

p>Goodbye Facebook. So long Twitter. I was convicted that I was spending more time on social media than with my Father. Concerned with others updates/lives than the souls of the lost, I quit contending for. That the intimacy with the lover of my soul was fading. My passion for prayer was weakening. My heart stopped breaking. Weeping for my family and friends dried up. And  I stopped being anguished and only concerned for the lost. Selfish of my time.  Focused on my plans.  Passionless. He is calling me into place of pure focus, complete brokenness and unadulterated repentance. Joy is coming -break my heart again Lord. As I spend time seeking His heart and away from the...
