“Lives that make no sense”. This is a MUST read guys, A MUST READ. Also I would highly recommend that you follow JCC’s blog. Many ministers can write beautiful words and blogs but there are very few who actually carry it with a burden of Christian love and ministry. As a fellow worker in ministry, there is so much to be inspired from and JCC today inspired me.
How many times someone has told you that you can not make a difference? That you can never change anything around you? Wherever you look you will always find someone who is willing to predict your future. It can be your father, your mother, your family , your wife, your kids, your friends, your boss, it can be anyone.
Why do they say that? because you fail, like everyone else. You fall down, your feet bleed, you are bruised often by little accidents of life. Your divorce, your drug use, your lack of education, your poverty, your disabilities, your age, your unwanted pregnancy, your fears and your past mistakes, people will take whatever they can find and tell you that you are just like them, that you are ordinary, just average, not better than anyone else. You are barely adequate enough and that’s it. They will take your failures and list them for you. There is always someone willing to do this to you.
“Do not despise your own place and hour. Every place is under the stars, every place is the center of the world.”
