Our Choices Make Us

The gateway to hell

True story.

The last bullet point is the issue.

The media, and the law, send mixed messages. Alcohol is also legal.

It will never happen to me. I’m immune from peer pressure.


High School Safety Assembly
Ninth, 10th, and 11th graders, plus faculty, staff, and maybe 10 parents.


High School Safety Assembly
One poor choice. We can control our actions, but we cannot control the consequences.


Alcohol and weed are the gateway to hell.

Yesterday’s High School assembly (parents invited) was led by Orlando Firefighter and paramedic Pat Kelly.

Homecoming weekend is two days away.

Praying we don’t lose a student(s) to poor choices.

They arrested the teen, the mom, and will probably arrest the dad.

Praying this good Family can recover and move forward in an entirely different way.

God is the only way for this to be even remotely possible.

They will never feel close to God until they accept personal responsibility for moving away.

God is always one heartbeat, one single breath, away.

I Hate Hearing From My Friends

What I mean is I hate hearing when tragedy happens. Two days ago an email shared the news that one of our college buddies had a tragedy. His teenage son died of a drug overdose.

Can you even fathom this? I can not.

For our friend, this probably makes 9/11 look like a picnic.

May I simply ask anyone reading this to try to absorb some of his pain?

Tragedy strikes us all. None of is immune from this. Perhaps this is the time when we are tempted to believe God doesn’t exist.

God never said life would be easy, He simply promises we will not walk alone. Our big challenge is to actually believe this when horrific tragedy is our shadow.
