The Courage to Rise

Have The Courage To Rise

The Courage to Rise

   Are you a victim of someone else’s choices, or are you a victim of nothing more than being captivated by fear?

Richard Bach said the following:

“If it’s never our fault, we can’t take responsibility for it. If we can’t take responsibility for it, we’ll always be its victim.”

You’ll never have a feeling of Safety if fear is still in the drivers seat. It’s only after fear is under control that the feeling of safety arrives

Sometimes, people have it backwards. they think:

MAKE ME FEEL SAFE NOW. THEN I’LL CONTROL THE FEAR AFTERWARDS.

I want to write up a post about how to have discernment.  Yes, it is a discipline!

The Discipline of Discernment

Be it in a small town, a church, or a corporate entity, there’s always a conflict or two that arises between people.  And, sometimes that conflict is on a very, Very, VERY personal level.  It sucks.  But it happens.  And when (not if) you find yourself even remotely close to the situation, I want to give you a few things to consider.

How to have the discipline of discernment:

The title of this post could also be:

Best Video Ever

Why in the world have  I never seen this video?  Purely an awesome work of marketing art.  The camera work, the lyrics, the creativity, the storyboard, …all of it.  Pure genius!

 

And to think, if I would have lived my whole life, never to have seen this remarkably captivating video – honestly, could I say I really lived?

You’re about to watch it again, aren’t you?  It’s ok, I’ve been clicking ‘replay’ for the last 3hrs and 42 minutes as well.

Have fun.  And, yes, you’re welcome.

Click play, then read.

His Daughter by Molly Kate Kestner is a great little song from a great little singer.  Perhaps you’ve seen heard this one before – maybe you haven’t.  I don’t always prod people to comment, share, tag, and whatnot, but this time I will.  Share this post ~ in a message, in an email, in a tweet, use the social media sharing buttons, …whatever.

Don’t let this song, the lyrics, and the message go unheard!

 

Everything’s gonna be alright
She whispers to herself
She was only 6 years old that night
As she hid behind that shelf
Cuz daddy had a little too much to drink
And mama didn’t want her to feel the pain she felt
But she still felt the pain…

Well 10 years they came and went
And dad was gone
So she looked for love in other men
And tried to act strong.
Broken hearts and Scars in only places she could see
Cuz she just wanted, she just wanted to feel something

And as she sat there on that bed
thinking bout what those girls said
tears streamed down her eyes
She cried…

If there’s a God out there
Please here my prayer.
I’m lost and I’m scared
and I’ve got no where else to go
I’ve come a long, long way
But I’m not sure I can make it much farther…
So if you’re listening, could you give a helping hand
To your daughter.

Well her path started to change
She reached out and grabbed God’s grace
And finally, she saw a light
Until that night…
Where she decided one drink was alright
and one thing led to another
Next thing you know, 9 months go be
she’s a mother.

And as she layer there in that bed
Stroking that small angels head
Tears streamed down her eyes
She cried…

If there’s a God out there
Please here my prayer.
I’m lost and I’m scared
and I’ve got no where else to run
I’ve come a long, long way
But I’m not sure I can be the best mother…
So if you’re listening, could you give a helping hand
To your daughter.

Well that baby grew into a boy
Who became her pride and joy
He loved her like no man could
And her heart felt peace, cuz she finally understood
God’s love.

And as she layed there in that bed
99 years old
She grabbed her songs hand and said
There’s something you must know…

There is a God up there
Who heard my prayer
I was lost and afraid
And I had no where else to go.
I had know clue, what to do
And then He sent me you.

So if you’re lost and afraid
and you feel so alone
don’t worry child
cuz there’s a Father who will love you as His own
Just like he loved his daughter.
Like he loved His daughter.

Girl in A Country Song

Girl In a Country Song

Girl in A Country Song

...and people wonder why a guy from a small town suburb of Fort Worth does NOT listen to country music (usually) I'll say that Girl In A Country Song is one of the exceptions!

Someone showed this to me and I just had to pass it on .

Maddie & Tae talk about being country girls and I really wish every person – guy and girl – would please watch this video!

Ladies, can I tell ya a secret?  The overall demographic of “men” is changing.  Don’t get me wrong, there are still, and will always be typical men.  But in general, if you want a guy with a bit more quality, don’t put so much focus on your tan, your hair, your butt (well, ok a little!), on your looks, your smokey eyes, how much leg can hang out of your shorts, how much (whatever-the-lower-butt-thing-is-called) can hang out of your shorts, your nails, and how much cleavage you can post on Facebook.

A cute butt is great.  But in today’s world, if you want a good man, get a bit-o-character, and don’t be a typical Girl in a Country Song.
