Deuteronomy 13 - 15; Galatians 1

Woke up grateful for alot and yet scared to be called to GIVE more than I want.....Deut. 15:11 There will always be poor people in the land. Therefore I command you to be openhanded toward your brothers and toward the poor and needy in your land.
woke up so excited to spend time with God and Dan and Tom and yet have I, am I domesticating God in this time....
I don't know anything anymore but trusting that the brain explosion is necessary to change the way I think and feel, trusting that the paradigm shifting is part of the journey.
Scared and yet excited that risking everything makes more and more sense....
Derek Webb Lyrics:
i repent of my pursuit of America's dream
i repent of living like i deserve anything
my house, my fence, my kids, and my wife
in our suburb where we're safe and white
i am wrong and of these things i repent
i repent of parading my liberty
i repent of paying for what i get for free
the way i believe that i am living right
by trading sins for others that are easier to hide
i am wrong and of these things i repent
i repent
judging by a law that even i can't keep
wearin righteousness like a disguise
to see through the planks in my own eyes
i repent of trading truth for false unity
i repent of confusing peace and idolatry
of caring more of what they think than what i know of what they need
and domesticating You until You look just like me
i am wrong and of these things i repent

"'Safe?' said Mr. Beaver...'Who said anything about safe? 'Course he isn't safe. but he's good. He's the King, I tell you.'"
--The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe

I am sorry I want to live more in safety... of this thing I repent.
Oh and if you're interested my man Dan was interviewed for the service Sunday and well the message was amazing as well.
