YOLO

THE RIVER WALK

So whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God. (1 Corinthians 10:31)

Relate: For a couple weeks back in July I had the joy of being able to briefly go back and visit New York. I returned to Turkey over a month ago but just this week found my way back to my home in Istanbul. A common question from both my New York friends and those here in my city is: “Which is better, New York City or Istanbul?” In both cases my answer is the same. That is a bad question. There are different things I love about both cities and there are also some other things that, eh… not so much.

One of the things that I have been more than glad to leave behind me is hearing the frequent…

Scripture Of The Day…

“Don’t let the sunshine spoil your rain.”

image

My daughter watches this Sesame street movie on repeat and in the opening song “the Grouch” is singing the Grouches anthem. This song is hilarious. It’s about how all good and happy things bothers him. He sings, “Don’t let the sunshine spoil your rain.” When i’m in a funk, and everything is going opposite of what I hoped, I sometimes sing this to myself. I shouldn’t, but it’s how I feel at that moment. Continue reading ““Don’t let the sunshine spoil your rain.””

“Jesus, Please beam me out!”

Saw, Insidious, The Grudge, Annabelle, and anything else terrifying. I hate horror movies. I wondered why Philippians 4:8 says, “Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things.” I got that message too late. I would watch some of that crap and would stay up all night. Especially, those horror movies when they go get the priest and he can’t even help them! They make it seem like darkness rules, whatever! But I could barley make it through a horror movie. I would cover my eyes, cover my ears, and finally start praying. If you have to pray your way through a scary movie, just leave. I would do just that, leave. Continue reading ““Jesus, Please beam me out!””

“Tell me the truth! No, wait, don’t!”

One of the things God is teaching me everyday is love. You may say, “This is simple. Its just an overwhelming feeling of affection for someone.” Yeah, I thought that too. In life, I thought you didn’t have to love everyone the same, because you don’t know everyone the same. Some relationships are deeper than others. And I cant just walk up to strangers and start hugging and whispering nice things to them…that’s weird right?? Its illegal! So, the Holy Spirit had to transform my definition of love to fit what God means.

“Fear not!”

image

I can’t tell you a time in my youth where I wasn’t afraid of something. I was afraid of a new school, new people, any kind of changes scared me. There are the obvious the things you grow up being afraid of like ghosts and Micheal Jackson (these are my fears). As I got older I grew out of the little fears, and the big ones set in. I was afraid of lack in finances, afraid of a broken heart, afraid of death, and afraid of failing in life, etc. I was in total frustration most of the time because of this four letter word.

“Dont leave me at church!”

image

This world is full of different types of people. They all have different personalities and they all look different. People are great, but I was not a people person. I didn’t really like to get too close to people. People get all in your space and your business. Then,you have some people who are so nice that it makes you think they are crazy.  You have to ask why are they so nice, because this world is dangerous. Oh, and last but not least, there are the people that just walk up and talk to you. Complete strangers!  What school is that taught at? As soon as I would see them coming, I’m speed walking away. I’m not like that anymore. I’m probably one of those people I use to talk about now, but it took a while to get me to take the brick walls down.

“I’m not asking for alot!”

image

I can remember being young and asking my mom for all these crazy things. When you’re young, you ask for everything. Piercings, tattoos, gold teeth, jewelry, all types of stuff. My moms would say, “Wait til you’re 18.” That was the end of the discussion. I was stuck waiting. I could’ve found away around her but I would’ve gotten what I wanted and been miserable trying to hide it.

“What you getting to eat?”

image

I’ve always heard the phrase, “You are what you eat?” But I never thought of myself to be a number 8 at McDonald’s. What’s so wrong with eating what you want? I don’t want to starve and die on an empty stomach. I’d rather go happy and full. That sounds bad right? In reality, I know food can do a number of harmful things to you depending on what you eat, how much you eat, and how often you eat. If you eat one large meal one time a day, your body stores it as fat. If you eat junk all through the day, you’ll never get any key nutrients for a healthy body. You won’t gain any muscle and probably be tired and lazy. Who wants that either?
