We like our world confined to boxes.  We classify and identify everything around us.  We catalog things so they are defined.  We like our world well ordered.

This music is Christian, that music is Punk Rock.  People are rich, poor; black, white; straight, gay.

The world will tell you, “You can’t, you won’t, and you shouldn’t”.  God will tell you, “I am with you and I love you.”

Why listen to something that wants to wear you down instead of someone who wants to build you up?

There are so many voices vying for our attention.  So many that will tell us to fall in line and not shake the status quo.

Take time to silence the voices and search your heart for what you want.  Follow your dreams.  But, let God lead you.  Seek that still, small voice.

The world needs more people who are truly alive rather than just cogs in the machine.

“Don’t ask what the world needs. Ask what makes you come alive, and go do it. Because what the world needs is people who have come alive.” –Howard Thurman
