I went to sleep that Monday night with one thought on my mind. That day, I had become the ugly brokenness I see in the world, and it was because I had somehow left home without my “no-admission sign".
I cannot tell you how excited I am about working with these bold folks, using The B.O.O.M Walk Program. Not everyone has the gumption to defy the norm and admit that not everything is on the up and up. Those that have that gumption have it because they know that they know that they know that what awaits them on the other side is golden! And what is worth forfeiting that golden goodness that you get if the "Old Man" is bowed out of your life? Nothing, I tell you. Nothing.
B.O.O.M stands for "bow out Old Man", and this 10-Session online program kits you up with Bible-based tools and exercises that will unravel you and then put you back together again, the way only God can. You will walk away knowing how to rise and live above the brokenness you see in the world, and how to actually turn around and be part of the solution to the problems in our troubled world.
What is it that is keeping you broken and bound? Tell me. What's it's name? What is it that is making you run away from God because you are too angry with Him, or because you are too scared of Him? Or because you just don't give a hoot about Him? Even you, yes you, HE LOVES even with your back turned. He is still calling your name because He knows what He put inside you. He knows the shine He placed inside you. He has no rival. He has no equal, and He wants you. And you may think you are too far gone, but friend, there is no such thing. Because there is no impossibility, where God is concerned.
We were not saved to live in the shadows. We were saved to live out loud for the world to see. Not so that we can bash people over the head with the Bible, and condemn souls to hell for not believing in Jesus Christ. But rather, because you, I, we might just be "the only Jesus" that the world ever gets to experience.
Did you know that "Purpose" and "Calling" are not the same thing? Did you know that your Calling is closely linked to your "Roots-and-Routes", that is your life experiences.? Did you know that God uses your life story to "fit you for purpose" and equip you to be the solution bringer that God created and saved you to be? Did you know that the sure way to discover and ensure that you walk in God's calling on your life, is by pursing an intimate relationship with Him?
I found that life is what it is, because this world is what it is - broken. And a broken world will always find a way to dish up meanness and brokeness. As long as we are in this realm of time, there is, and will always be a reason in life to be reactive, and feisty, and militant, and to clap-back.
