One Of The Most Important Posts

I wish that I had more to give.

Tonight while driving home from work I saw a man without a shirt pushing a shopping cart. He was a really skinny man with out a shirt and I could tell that he is homeless. I've seen him a time or two before and I know it is the same guy because on his cart was a cross made out of some sticks tied together with a ratty bit of string. Every time I have seen this guy, I have looked at that cross on the cart that he pushes and have felt this strong desire to know more about him. 


As I was driving home from work I thought about a story that my former girlfriend had told me from when back we were dating.  She had told me about how she met a person who was homeless and how she raced home to get food and water and anything that she could find to give this person, praying that when she got back to her that she would still be there. I recalled how she shared the gospel with this woman. How she and her roommate sat and shared with her. How they hugged her.  I thought about that story as I was driving home tonight and passed this man pushing a cart with a make shift cross.  I flipped the car around because I had to talk to him.

I pulled into the nearest driveway and scrambled for any change that i had, any food that might be in there and I had this overwhelming need to give this stranger SOMETHING. It wasn't out of some sort of  sense of pity, but a near compulsion to re-enforce a part of the body in need.

I looked around my car and all I have, is a dollar forty five, and three empty Dr.Pepper $ coke cans.  I am not sure what to say to this guy, but I am feeling driven to talk to him." Homeless people like collect cans, that's my in" I think, so I grab them and walk over to talk to him.


He tells me his name is Larry as I ask about the cross. HE asks me if I am a christian and I tell him that I am. We make some conversation about how I have seen him around. I look at his lack of shirt and ask if he needs one. Larry pokes around in his cart and pulls out a few, as I was prepared to literally give him the one off my back. "Do you need a shirt?" I ask him realizing that my shirt would look like a tent over his lean wiry frame. I have to ask him, " Larry, how did you get here? What is your testimony?"

I was prepared for a story involving sin or drugs or some mistake. I was ready for some excuse or justification and what I heard surprised me.  The man spoke coherently and with conviction as he told me that as he read the bible, he felt led to give up everything.  Larry went on to talk about how he gave up everything to follow Christ and he walks the streets passing out christian literature. He says that he has set his sights on treasures in the world to come.  A pain hits his voice as he wonders aloud if he made some wrong choice somewhere.

" His yoke is easy and his burden in light... That's is what his word says. My life hasn't been easy. It hasn't been comfortable. I wonder if I made a mistake. "  My heart is torn at this. I look in the eyes of this man who looks like nothing by the standards of the world.  I look at this man with thick 70's glasses and thinning hair and my heart hurts. This man is more noble than many, and we as a people look on him as not. 

I ask him if he has a bible and he assures me that he does. After handing him the three cans and the dollar forty five I wished that I had more to give. I don't but I know who does. " can I pray with you larry?" I ask. The noble man with a heavy heart smile like a parched man receiving water. I placed my hand on his bare shoulder and I began to pour out my heart before God on his behalf. Praying blessings, Praying for provision, Praying for re-enforcements, Praying for opportunities to minister. You can't get much more in the trenches than that, where Larry is.

The Day It Hit Me.

I have not always been... well... the most optimistic of people.

In fact, at some points in my life, I measured it by the times between storms.
Like, things would be going well for a little while, so like a sailor looks to the sky to see how the sea will fare the next day, I was waiting for the next thing to fall apart.

I used to define myself as a man of great endurance.  A lot has happened to me in and around my life.  I could sit here and cite a list of events and tragedies that all were terrible things.
I used to say that I have seen more by age 10 than some people see in their who lives, and that is true.



I remember a time in particular when I was a kid living in New Mexico. My parents had grounded me and I wasn't allowed to go play with my friends. Well, my parents weren't home so I saw that as a perfect opportunity to sneak out my window and go play. This plan was flawless until my brother was driving home from his job as a security officer and knew what was going on. He rolled down his window and told me to go home. I ignored him. HE parked his car, and got out, grabbed me, threw me over his shoulder and took me home. He asked me if I was going to comply and I am pretty sure I made some smart alec remark, because I've had a mouth since I was born. My brother shut the door to my room, and I crept right back out that window. I was out playing for a solid ten minutes before my brother came and found me and threw me over his shoulder and dragged me back home. " I can do this all day " I told him. That was when he put me in a sleeper hold and knocked me out.

Fast forward several years. It's Thanksgiving day and my brother and I are joking around in the living room. Well, joking turns to action and we began to wrestle. Now, He had studied martial arts and was a wrestler in highschool. I had just fought kids on the playground and in the halls in school. IT sounds like the clashing of Titans as we wrestle back and fourth. He finally gets me in the sleeper hold and he tells me

"tap out"

As he is choking me out, through guttural sounds I manage a gruff and loud, "No" . He laughs and reminds me that he has me. There is no getting out of this as he is making sure that I cannot get air. "Jay, you can't win... tap out. I won" In a captain Kirk-esk 'i don't believe in no win scenarios' I again growl out a defiant "Never". My peripheral vision is starting to go dark. I can see the black slowly fading in as I hear in the distance "STOP KILLING YOUR BROTHER AND COME EAT!!!"

One of the things that has stood out to others about me, is that I don't surrender on a lot of things. Some of that is plain old fashion stiff necked rebellion... but there is also another God given part to that.  There is something in me that sees certain things and I say, I am not going to break.

A man of great endurance.

That has been something that I have read about in places in the bible. I read about Peter enduring. I read about Joshua and David and there is a sense about them that has always stood out to me.
They endured hardships and what not.  Something about that spoke to me. Something about that, I identified with.

I was thinking about this, and my life long aspiration to punch a bear in the face...
I was thinking about this stuff and praying about it.

Then,  it hit me.

Endurance is only part of the call.

Endurance isn't the place where you stop. Some times it isn't enough that you're standing... It is how you are standing.  I'm talking about overcoming.

I'm not talking about surviving getting mauled by a proverbial bear. I am talking about standing there after you have kicked it in the groin and punched it in the throat.  Anyone can get mauled. Anyone can get tossed around by the waves during a storm. Surviving is good.
But I see more to it.

Stuff is going to fly at you. That is a promise. 
Stand stronger.
Stand firm with the Joy of salvation and the praise of God on your lips and say...

What is next.... Because with God, In Him... there is nothing that is going to stop me until everything fades to black.

"These things I have spoken to you, so that in Me you may have peace. In the world you have tribulation, but take courage; I have overcome the world.” - John 16


For whatever is born of God overcomes the world; and this is the victory that has overcome the world—our faith. Who is the one who overcomes the world, but he who believes that Jesus is the Son of God?  This is the One who came by water and blood, Jesus Christ; not with the water only, but with the water and with the blood. It is the Spirit who testifies, because the Spirit is the truth.- 1 john 5 



Yeah, we endure. We suffer together in life. We hurt in the world. Things do suck. But take heart people. Lift up your face.  Through Him, His sacrifice... We Will do more than endure the storm.. We'll get to that place where we rebuke it.


That is what I am hearing.
Don't just live half the plan.
