Tired of being Christianish

Tonight I started an online/virtual discipleship study. As part of it I joined a conference call of some young people that want to change their worlds. A group called BAHM - Bikers Against Human Trafficking ( was hosting the call. Basically, it was some young people that were on a world-wide mission adventure over a year called the World Race ( that came face to face with human trafficking and felt led to do something about it. So they did a bike ride to raise awareness and funds to combat this.

Several of these people are leaving their careers and comfortable futures to make a difference in their world. To advance the kingdom. Wow! That challenges me.

I am unsure of what God has for me. I just want to get closer and willing to be a little radical for Him. So I have started on an on-line study as I mentioned to draw closer and still so I can start hearing His voice clearly again. If you are interested check it out at

Well I better quit blogging and get to reading my devotion. I am stolked. Just hope I endure better than the running I did with my son tonight. I'll have to post about that tomorrow.

What Have I Become?

Last night on my way to Wal-Mart to buy my son some $50 Wii game, I stopped to return a video at McDonalds (now that is weird). When I was finished a lady walked up to me and asked if she could have $12 to get her and her family home. Her husband and two little kids were with her. With little hesitation I said "no." I then got in the van and was put out that the lady asked for money. I mean a taxi cab fare. Come on get more original than that. Anyway I drove on to the Wal-Mart parking lot.

Later that night I decided to do devotions during some games. I read in Acts. How the disciples could not help but share the gospel, how they ministered with boldness. How they saw a lame man begging for money and then gave him what he really needed. I thought about this family. I prayed for them and then asked Christ to change my heart. Not one where I foolishly give money but maybe I could have offered to call the cab and pay for it, a meal, or some compassion. Imagine if I was spirit-led and spoke to their root problem or plugged them in with a local church that would help them get on their feet. My heart is still heavy for those two young kids and their parents. I hope some Christian helped them.
