MY GOD, a building and people in the USofA I 12 I THE JOURNAL OF A SMILE.
12.21.2011

i wrote this somewhere between november 2005 and march 2006. that places me somewhere between california, colorado, nevada, utah, arizona, tennessee, michigan, indiana, illinois, ohio and obvcause BARSTOW! but, from the sounds of things i was in a building when i wrote it, so that narrows it down to california, tennessee, and michigan.. and fortunately nowhere near barstow…shooooo!

..

Lord, please help me to love.
it must be really hard to be a christian –
to die to self – in this environment,
in this culture –
the pressure of the american culture is big.
it’s not that the people don’t
love God, love Jesus and his ways.
i believe they do
and Jesus resonates with every fibre of their souls.
it’s the lack of servant, selfless leadership.
it’s a lack of strong and i mean courageous leadership.

EXCELLENCE can’t buy Christ
and MONEY can’t buy Christ.
he will not be seduced by your worldly refinements,
none of your earthly accomplishments
and none of your great minds.
he is Lord.

i am sitting here
and i have never felt more separated from God’s community in my life.
this place is picture perfect,
and architects dream
and i felt closer to God and his people in the grass huts
and the wet tents of mozambique.
my God will not be seduced by anyone.
nor anything.
he is ruler of all
and in control of all.

PROTECT ME LORD.
