Hi everyone,
It’s been a little while since I have posted. Part of the reason for that is I have just been very busy and for the most part, that is a very good thing, but there’s something else. I’ve been doing a little soul searching. You see I’m kinda angry. I see my faith, my friends and my God belittled over and over again as I watch the nation I love falling further and further away from what we are supposed to be and frankly a larger portion of the church going along with the culture rather than being the salt and light we were called and created to be, and I have had enough.

Part of me wants to join in the melee. Part of me wants to jump into the fracas for the purpose of defending my faith, my God. Part of me wants to take to whatever channels I can find, decry the wrongs I see all around me, call out all the perpetrators, especially those in the church who ought to know better, blast the blasphemy, annihilate the apostasy and just go on a reign of holy terror. I feel like at this point in history, it would almost be justified. Almost…

And then I wonder, is all my work in the arts and in the church really doing anything, or am I focused on the right things. Again most of this comes from my desire to fight.

But then I think of my calling. I think of why I am here and I think of the conduct of the One I claim to follow (and for the record, desire and try to follow). What would He have me do? At this point, my heart and mind was drawn to Ephesians 6:12 For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. Diving into the fracas for me would be nothing more that adding to the noise. Blasting people on social media, the internet and other places, would be nothing more than a battle against flesh and blood, and while I confess that might be cathartic at times, I’m not sure it’s Christlike, at least not for me. Instead I think about this weird acronym I selected for this ministry, A.M.O.K. It stands for Arts Ministry Outreach for the Kingdom. The mission is simple, using my gift to take the Gospel to the ends of the earth. If I am going to fight the real enemy, then I must use the weapons I have been given. And so this is my turning point. I’ve had enough of the way things are, and I am going to do what I can to change it in ways that will hopefully actually matter. I’m going to take these gifts that God has given me, and the Sword of the Lord (the Word of God) and I am going to do battle the right way. If you’re in, join me.

I’ve had ENOUGH of the way things are. STAY TUNED!
