“You do you…”

The world today has this mentality that “you do you” and “I do me” and as long as we all get along and unify at the end of the day everything is going to be okay. But with that mentality, everything is NOT going to be okay.

If the “you do you” statement is right then Jesus Christ died on the cross in vain.
Jesus didn’t die on the cross so you could do you. He died on the cross so you would STOP doing YOU and START living for HIM. He said “If you love me you keep MY commands…”

I’m so fed up with people who call themselves Christians yet they sit back and say/do absolutely nothing when they see someone is heading down the road for destruction all because “who am I to judge?”
Has it ever occurred to you that God (the judge) has already set in stone what causes someone to go to Heaven and what causes someone to go to hell; therefore He is relying on us to show people what gets them to Heaven and what gets them to hell…We aren’t JUDGING them, we are showing them what the judge has already said. How can a person realize the need for a savior if they don’t realize they need saved?

That’s why I can’t jump on this bandwagon of fake Christians who say “Oh you’re gay? That’s okay. You do you. I’m straight, you’re gay…but as long we get along and unify it’s all going to be okay.”
Where is that in the Holy Bible? Last I checked God said homosexuality is an abomination and it sends you to hell. So why aren’t we saying anything? HONESTLY I would like a Christian to answer me when I ask why they just sit there and pat people on the back for living in sin. 99% of them will say “because who am I to judge…my job is to love.” Since when is love tolerance? When is love acceptance of sin?
Who are you to try to change the definition of love?
Love is a warning and love SPEAKS OUT.

Love yells STOP when the bridge is out ahead and you see someone accelerating straight for the bridge.

Love yells MOVE when a kid is in the middle of the street and a car is coming.

Only the devil is stupid enough to come up with the idea that love means silence and tolerance.

Jesus said to expose evil. Jesus said to go make disciples. Find me a scripture that Jesus says we can all do whatever we want and it’s all going to be okay and I’ll delete my post and write a blog about how you can live however your flesh desires and still live in eternity with Jesus.

News flash: there’s not one.

We (Christians) need to realize what time it is on God’s calendar.

I’m reminded of playing basketball in high school when it’s a tie game and there’s only a minute left of the game. That’s not the time to slow down – you work harder, you run faster, you don’t just give it 100% but you give it 120%. Where are these Christians?

The tumor (pt. 2)

If you missed part one of me finding out about when I had a tumor (the size of an egg) in my nose then check it out HERE

My family and I waited for a surgery date/time in Dallas when I received a phone call from my doctor. He finally had good news. Apparently there was a centimeter (or two…) between the tumor and my brain. He decided to keep me in Amarillo to operate on me and have a doctor on stand-by in case something major happened. My surgery was scheduled for “tomorrow morning.”

The next morning my parents took me in for surgery. Josh and his family met us up there and stayed in the room while we were waiting. I remember the doctor coming in and meeting with us. He informed us all of how dangerous the surgery would be and what all it would entail. They would be cutting through my eye socket, behind my ear, through my throat and pulling pieces of the tumor out from each area. It would take several hours and someone needed to stay in the room at all times. I remember my dad praying and I remember telling the doctor that I was in the Great Physician’s hands. He said he “sure hoped so.” I said my good-byes to my family and the guys in scrubs rolled me down the hall.

My boyfriend watched as they rolled me away – and unknown to me at the time, that’s when he realized he had fallen in love with me.

I don’t remember much after that. I only remember the doctor asking me how many boyfriends I had before he stuck me with a needle and I was out. Then it happened.

The tumor just fell out of my nose.

He had no explanation of how this thing just fell out. He asked “do you know how many doctor visits before this surgery where I tugged on that thing and it wouldn’t budge?” He went on to say it was connected with a BONE and even had a blood supply. In all of his years of practicing, he had never seen anything like this before.

I had an explanation: From the day I found out about the tumor I had been praying for the thing to just fall out. I waited. And waited. And waited. It never fell out and I began to wonder why – I had the faith, I just knew it was going to fall out….but if “never did” – but then I realized: I was just expecting it to fall out on my time, at my apartment or something – I believe God used this miracle, not for myself necessarily, but for that doctor. That’s why the tumor didn’t fall out on my time, when I thought that it should.

Now the tumor is out; however, I’m 21 years old and living on my own with a mediocre job. I pay all of my own bills and had zero insurance. Overnight I had $10,000.00 worth of medical debt that I was now responsible for.

**Come back soon to read how the debt disappeared almost as fast as the tumor!
