I decided “Words are my favorite color” would be a rad name for the podcast stuff I’m starting up…so, this shall be “vbjenkins” instead. Tumblr is so much more than words, anyhow. It’s stupid fun gifs and dolphins riding on horseback.Comments
When Jesus sweat blood, it wasn’t in private.
When Jesus wept, He was not alone.
When Jesus cried out, feeling forsaken by God, it was publicly.
Ever wonder why so many Christians put it upon themselves to hide their own suffering, then? If we are to live in the way our Jesus did and does, we’ve got to bleed onto one another. We’ve got to let tears flow where they may. We’ve got to climb a mountain for solitude with our God. We’ve got to get a little pissed when things refuse to yield fruit when we want it. We’ve got to laugh at ourselves as we point to God through our shortcomings and our darkest moments—not cut and paste and wait for good weather.
Anything less would fall short of the glory of God.Comments
