Fear is NOT from God.
Building 429 Releases New Album “Live the Journey” Today
“For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.”
- 2 Timothy 1:7, NKJV
I’ll never forget this verse as long as I live because it was the FIRST scripture I remember my mom teaching me when I was a child. I don’t know why it was the first, but today I would guess that mom knew what I didn’t…
It’s release day for GRAMMY® nominated Building 429 and the band’s new album, Live the Journey. The highly anticipated project was three years in the making, involved a lot of soul searching and has led to the most intimate, spiritual journey of the group’s career.
THE SAME GOD for every child, every family, and every community worldwide!
OK, BEFORE YOU READ THIS, promise me you’ll hang in there for a minute while I set the stage for this devotional!
“The second law of thermodynamics states that the total entropy of an isolated system can never decrease over time. The total entropy can remain constant in ideal cases where the system is in a steady state (equilibrium), or is undergoing a reversible process.
Always Only You
“When I was five, I walked the aisle singing Just As I Am”, well, that’s how the story began. We were an “every time the doors are open at the church” kind of family, meaning every Sunday morning, Sunday night, Wednesday night, and every 5th Sunday Singing, we were there.
I Still Believe
You’ve probably heard the old sayings “Home Is Where The Heart Is” or “Home Sweet Home.” I always wondered, what’s the difference between a house and home? I think a “house" is really just a structure and a house is still a house, whether there's someone living there or not. Now a home, that’s different.
These are just two headlines that came up when I searched the internet for the words “the end of Christianity in America.” I wish I could stand up and say that they are wrong about America becoming a “Post-Christian nation,” but it’s happening right in front of our eyes.
Growing up, I remember the power of a promise. It really meant something to me…I’d promise my friend that I’d have his back always…make a promise to do my best in the big game…I’d always promise my grandmother that I’d really listen when she was talking…but when and where did the idea of a promise lose its significance?
Shame Doesn't Live Here
Joy Unspeakable…. what could that look like in our lives? What if I made the decision to focus on the things that brought me true joy and nothing else? Wouldn’t life look different then?
LIVE THE JOURNEY WITH ASSURANCE
Shame is one of the things we seem talk about the least but can have the greatest stronghold on our lives! Why is that? Maybe we need to define it and understand it first before we can defeat it!
THE JOURNEY FROM ATTITUDE TO GRATITUDE
You know, I’ve discovered that it’s one thing to plan for a journey, then we start out on our journey, but I think you’ll agree that one of the hardest things to do is to Live the Journey, especially with a true sense of “Assurance” of where we’re going and what it’ll take to get there.
Over the coming weeks, I’d like to share my own personal journey with you. These are real moments and real lessons learned from a real guy wrestling with a very real God. I’ve often tried to work myself out of moments of depression, anxiety, and fear.
How many times in life have we all desperately wanted to be the one who said that phrase at the perfect moment and been the hero? I know that I personally have had a savior complex for YEARS.
