The Silence Is Speaking

The Silence Is Speaking

When the white noise is gone, you can hear. I mean – you can really hear. Many times what you hear is nothing but complete silence and it can be pretty challenging. However, the silence is speaking and if you really want to know the truth about yourself – and the truth means no harm – there is no other way to get it but through quieting the noise in your life. The truth only wants to set you free. From the day I started riding my bike from Las Vegas to Washington, DC, I have not listened to my favorite music channels on Pandora or any station. As I pump my legs covering on average 30 miles per day, I’m listening to the wind and waiting for God’s still small voice to speak to me. While in Lake Havasu City, AZ in my tent preparing to leave this morning, I did listen to a little music. I immediately missed the silence. I have not watched the news or read any “Breaking News” editorials at length until tonight by watching Tucker Carson for about 30 minutes. In fact, I unsubscribed from practically all my “YouTube” Channels that provided daily updates on all that is going on. As soon as I see or read something about what’s happening, it interferes with what I’ve been hearing lately – silence.   The noise creates  a void That paralyzes my knowing     The noise knows nothing of me Is never speaking to me Is only using my soul, my spirit, my mind To transmit its message to others around me I remain...
The Church Under Fire Will Arise

The Church Under Fire Will Arise

With another shooting, this time at a Church in Texas on Sunday, I believe the time for the American Church, in particular fellow artists, to “SHIFT” into action could not be more important. The Church has slipped into apathy and has become complacent with its mission. It is imperative that the American Church find her voice for America again in an intimate way, not merely being critical of policy within the realm of politics. While we must be a vanguard against the evil that seeks to demoralize our nation with legislation that is clearly in violation of God’s Word, we must also recognize that the darkness will ever be present until the end as we know it. God has HIS way of reminding HIS people that unless HE protects our nation, our neighborhoods, our homes and even our places of worship –  we will never be safe. The increase of judgment we are seeing upon our nation is apparent of this stark reality.  In many ways, we have made America an idol and “churchanity” has replaced Christianity. We have capitulated our spiritual responsibility to be a light in America by putting more trust in politicians and the political process than in the “Great Commission”.  Yes, we must stand in every realm of society and be defenders of the truth. More importantly, however, we must herald the gospel through preaching the unsearchable riches of his grace to those who will hear and receive. Jesus did not give his time to those who rejected the truth. He spent more time with those who would receive His words. I’m calling for The Church Body of Believers to shift our time, our...
An Idea: Protect US

An Idea: Protect US

With the endless rhetoric that is taking place in Washington DC and the time spent in attacking ideas from both ends of the political spectrum, our representatives need to come together to protect US – as in you and I. Without US there is no USA. Terrorism both abroad and domestic is quickly becoming a way of the new American culture and our representatives, unlike us have security details and access to information that puts them in the best position to be safe. Not so with the average American. Yes, I put my trust in God and believes He protects my every step. He has also placed those in office to be sure they do their job and that is to protect our borders from terrorists and those who are not legal from entering into our home. For representatives who refuse to get behind common sense legislation that puts US first, we must be sure we put them OUT. What matters is our lives and should it be lost due to negligence from our representatives, they must be held accountable.   Protect US The borders have been set for a reason They are there to identify our land To make sure that people abroad understand We are America Not anyone can just come in Everyone is welcomed to apply Just answer a few questions and tell us why… You’d do the same to us So, what’s the big fuss? Our pledge is to ourselves first That we may share freedom and liberty With all who thirst To drink of this preciousness Our borders we shall protect We are the...
