I laugh in the face of giants

Posted in Devotional, devotions, Message, various crazy stuff by Bill Charlson on July 15, 2017

David was not a holler at the top of your lung type of person, unless he’s facing giants. He yelled  “You come to me with a sword, with a spear, and with a javelin. But I come to you in the name of the Lord of hosts, the God of the armies of Israel, whom you have defied.” But people don’t like the david’s of the world, because it disrupts the market. There is money to be made off of giants. Big pharmacy has money to made, big oil and big coal have skies to pollute, big church has people to “heal,” big media has a story to be told, big money has big plans, but I am a visionary. We don’t like visionaries. NO visionaries allowed here, but God is not the author of confusion, and mix ups, and weak knees, no I a will prevail, because “I come to you in the name of the Lord of hosts, the God of the armies of Israel, whom you have defied.”

The value of Gods plan

Posted in Church, Devotional, devotions, various crazy stuff by Bill Charlson on July 14, 2017

It’s easy to overlook Gods plan for our lives when we also have needs, and we try to balance our needs with what fits in with it, and we have no other choice. I’m not a Duracell bunny, and I don’t have the faith and energy to run into every open door anymore. I leave my window open to anyone in a way of speaking, especially if they need help, but at the end of the day we live in world where we all need to be connected and unified with others, and it’s not about what you can do for me, or what problem of mine you can solve, it’s a two way thing. This is how it works, you admit you need me, and admit I need you, and if those two thing’s do not fit in with your ideas of what life is, then your living a live of works, and not grace. I have learned to stay out of relationships and situations where it’s completely one sided in the sense that it’s about them helping me, and I’m just the poor broken person who desperately needs them. No, it doesn’t work that way, this isn’t one sided, if you come into contact with me, however it may appear God made it happen, and it’s a divine appointment, not a one sided rescue. Admittedly growing up it really was one sided, and I did need rescue, but that’s because I was just not ready to see things differently. Every person you run into is a divine appointment, and it’s mostly about fellowship with God, not about money or what you or they get out of the deal.
