This post is a response to a great team retreat I just came back from. It was really great.  “Launch out in the deep.”

Love goes much deeper than pain. It reaches in as long as it has hands. It cares as long as the object of affection remains in mind. Struggle isn’t strong enough to hinder it. Oppression’s heavy weight can not stop its compulsion to try again, to hope again, to cover another.

When God reveals this part of Himself to us we experience the compulsory soothing of our soul, the sheltering of our emotions, the building of our true relationships, the giving of His strength, the gentle smile of a father/teacher/motivator. He helps you forget your past and gives you a new house to live in, a stronger perspective…a strong base with Jesus as the cornerstone.

Love always gives and cultivates the object of its affection. If you love sports you cultivate it, if you love yourself you cultivate you, and if you love others you cultivate them.

Sometimes through living we search for others to love us and we find that love (at least the kind that we give each other) leaves and hurts sometimes. We find that it is circumstantial.

This is why Jesus said to Seek Him first. His love is constant and compulsive towards all who see Him. He tends to us. If we can understand and accept His love first, then the hurts of being in relationship with others won’t shake your soul and leave it without a comforter, your true love…God.

It frees you to still cultivate the other things that you love.

So if you hear me constantly trying to “build you up” or speaking about life, don’t take it as me being serious….think of it as me cultivating the object of my affection!

Mile 137: Who am I to say THIS about Cancel Culture! iS IT TRUE?

This new space in our culture called “cancel culture” where any person who disagrees with the growing popular perspective or have made a misstep verbally or behaviorally, whether in the present or in the past, can be cancelled (i.e. have economic means negatively impacted) is the epitome of a self-defeating movement. But…. This is not […]

Mile 137: (Question 3) Dealing with the rising emotions from the murder of George Floyd: a performance psychology strategy perspective.

I never thought that this process would have opened up the amount of deep conversations I’ve had with friends and colleagues because of what they’ve read in these posts. I appreciated every connection. Before I get into answering my final question in my process, I want to mention how inadequate what I’ve said and am […]

Mile 137: (Question 2) Dealing with the rising emotions from the murder of George Floyd: a performance psychology strategy perspective.

I have meditated on part 1 of my performance psychology strategy of analyzing my internal world because of our current cultural climate for a few days now. I’ve gotten to speak with some friends, pastors and business folk about their pov and listened to some podcasts. I’m trying to get different vantage points so I […]
