>The Boredom of Blending In

>
In the movie, “What A Girl Wants,” teenage Daphne is trying to be someone she’s not. At one point, her boyfriend asks, “Why are you trying so hard to fit in, when you were born to stand out?”

Blending in is not the forte of teens alone. Adults become part of the herd…even the “Christian” herd all too readily.

Live life for the Audience of One as a sacrificial service of worship to Him and Him alone…and don’t shackle yourself with the shabby clothing of “normality.”

Jesus invaded my life shortly after my arrest at age 26. I spent the first few years of my new life incarcerated. Went to Bible school after parole; have served with Kansas City Youth For Christ, Headwaters Christian Youth (Rhinelander, Wi), Family Life Ministries (Bath, NY), and now with Midland Ministries (Saint Joseph, Mo). Married with four children, work with youth, adults, inmates. Heavily involved in Bible quizzing for four decades. Narrow minded about Jesus and the gospel; fairly open minded about most other things. Speak in churches, camps (both teen and family), civic groups, public schools, Christian schools and colleges...amazed I get to do what I get to do....favorite verse Romans 15.13 "May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing so that you, by the power of the Holy Spirit, may overflow with hope."
