Friends, it’s Monday, and you know what that means… It’s time to Lighten Up! Have you ever had trouble making a decision? Sometimes having too many choices can be a good thing. I hope you enjoy hearing the story of my friend, Beth, and the relief she experienced by realizing she just needed to “pick one!”
It’s Lighten up Monday! This is a short clip from my message on Moses and the burning bush, a fascinating look at all the excuses Moses made when God called him into action.
Please take the time to read Exodus 3 and 4. See if you can name the excuses Moses tried to use. I identify five of them in my video “A Wimpy Prophet, a Butane Bush and No Excuses.” We still use the same excuses today. Enjoy this clip and please share the DVD with your friends.
Happy New Year and a Lighten Up Monday good morning to you! It’s always good to start the new year with a little laughter, am I right?
Have you ever been woken in the middle of the night by a sinister noise? If so, you will identify with this clip.
Today’s Lighten Up Monday clip can be found on Ken’s DVD, I’m Not Ok.
We all struggle with identity—who we are, why we are, and what we have to offer this vast, broken world. About the time we find a scrap of worth or significance, something happens to make us fully aware of how much we lack. A harsh word. A broken relationship. A blunder or failure. Then, in spite of our best efforts at positivity or affirmation, we can’t escape the insecurity and aloneness we experience as a result. When it comes to this epidemic of misplaced identity, my friend Michele Cushatt understands the struggle first hand. Without giving away her story (which you can read in her books), Michele knows what it’s like to have the feet kicked out from underneath her, and to wonder if she’d ever again be able to stand. But she also knows what it’s like to push through the darkness, to cry out to God for grace, and to discover the miracle of a God whose purpose and presence never fail, regardless of what may come.
