Busted Halo® has created a series of virtual stations designed for personal devotion. These stations relate to Jesus’ teachings about the Kingdom of God and the reason his vision of this Kingdom led to his death. Find a quiet place to watch these stations, and as you do the devotions be open to how God is speaking to you through the Stations of the Cross.

Just today I get a sad plea from a mom: “Please help me! I can hardly keep it together. My sons are in jail for drugs-related crimes.”
When will we see that drugs are evil and they take all of life out of the human body eventually.

This clip from ER was shared as “why pop culture matters.” I believe it does show why pop culture matters, why what you believe as truth matters.

Have you let Jesus affect you where it counts? He focuses on transformation. We all need it! We all need Him!

G. K. Chesterton on courage:
Courage is almost a contradiction in terms.
It means a strong desire to live taking the form of a readiness to die.
“He that will lose his life, the same shall save it,
“ is not a piece of mysticism for saints and heroes.
It is a piece of everyday advice for sailors or mountaineers.
It might be printed in an Alpine guide or a drill book.
The paradox is the whole principle of courage, even of quite earthly or quite brutal courage.
A man cut off by the sea may save his life if he will risk it on the precipice.
He can only get away from death by continually stepping within an inch of it.
A soldier surrounded by enemies, if he is to cut his way out,
needs to combine a strong desire for living with a strange carelessness about dying.
He must not merely cling to live, for then he will be a coward, and will not escape.
He must not merely wait for death, for then he will be a suicide, and will not escape.
He must seek his life in a spirit of furious indifference to it,
he must desire life like water and yet drink death like wine. Read more of this post

Life is fleeting! Who do you need to bless today that you may not get a chance to bless on another day? Step out, be courageous and make a difference.
