Disruption and Purpose, Pt. 1

DISRUPTION~

In an effort to engage in small talk, it is not uncommon for inquiring adults to question unsuspecting children: “What do you want to be when you grow up?” Fireman, police officer, ballerina, movie star, professional athlete, astronaut, and president of the United States: The dreams planted into the hearts of society’s future. My childhood dream was to grow up to be a ballerina…or Miss Piggy, and I will admit I have almost achieved my declaration with satirical twists.

At 8 months-old I was removed from the custody of my biological mother and placed into a foster family, who were distant cousins to my biological father. Because I was just an infant when this occurred I believed the family raising me was my true and only family. I had the happiest childhood! I didn’t need or want for anything. My days were filled with adventurous explorations around the neighborhood accompanied by my best friend, Autumn. We were inseparable, at least until the street lights came on. Curfew meant we were separated only until the early hours of the next morning since Autumn lived right across the street from me.

Devastatingly, Autumn and I experienced a more permanent division when I moved away during the summer before third grade. One year after moving away from Autumn and seemingly adjusting to my new life my whole world exploded when my “true and only family”  disclosed that they were not my “real” family after all. I was traumatized to learn my reality was a façade. Persuading me to visit my birth mother during my summer break preceding fourth grade, I went away and my life was changed forever. This was no visit! I was relocating to live with strangers!

Very quickly into my visit I realized the socioeconomic differences between the two families. My birth mother and my step-father lived in poverty. Transitioning from a two-story, middle-class home to a single-wide mobile home along a rocky dirt road was very difficult. My mother worked as a janitor for the local high school and my step-father unemployed, stayed home and collected monthly disability checks.There was no love, no bond, no warmth, nothing until the disciplinary efforts were implemented.

Getting whooped with wooden paddles and razor straps became the norm, especially after hours-long family meetings filled with ridicule and berating. The more I experienced pain the less I feared it. I became desensitized to the impact of the physical trauma and my emotions could no longer convey the true sadness that was plaguing me deep within. As my fear of corporal punishment diminished, so did my step-father’s ego. Instilling fear in others empowered him and his efforts quickly grew more sinister. I was ten years-old when he told me, “If being mean to you doesn’t work, then being nice to you will.” I was too young to comprehend his intent at that moment, but I quickly discovered that was my introduction into a dark and disgusting world of child molestation.

 

 

 

Daily Devotion

Purity

His final hours on Earth and Peter Simon couldn’t fathom Jesus serving His servants; but John 13: 7 Jesus said, “You do not realize now what I am doing, but later you will understand.” 1 john 1:9 If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us and purify us from all unrighteousness. When we get our feet dirty walking in a defiled world we don’t need to be re-saved, we just need rejuvenation. We need our feet cleansed.  We need to be refreshed in Christ and restored in Christ.  John 13: 34- 35A new commandment I give you: Love one another as I have loved you. By this, all will know you are my disciples, if you love one another.” Christ’s Love cleanses us.

Humility

Humility is not thinking lowly of yourself; it is not thinking of yourself at all. When we are empty of ‘self’ we are empowered of the Holy Spirit. God’s Love never quits and nothing will ever separate you from the perfect and eternal Love of God. Though the disciples didn’t deserve the Love of Christ, they needed the Love of Christ; therefore, they received the Love of the Lord Jesus Christ and John 13:1 in the world, He loved them to the end.

The mark of a Christian is not in what we wear, nor jewelry, nor even by the Bibles we carry, but by the lives we live and the love we carry. John 13:16 A who sent Him. The Bible says in 1 Corinthians 3:21, No boasting, for all things are yours in Christ. We have the unsearchable riches of Christ (grace, wisdom, mercy, glory); therefore, we don’t have to be constantly promoting ourselves and pushing ourselves, but rather we humble ourselves in the Spirit of Christ. Humility is laying down our own personal dignity and doing whatever it takes to minister in the name of Jesus Christ. We need to wash other’s feet to refresh them…not in scolding water, but in a service of love, to bring them back to Jesus.

John 13: 14-15. Minister to each other in the name of Jesus all the time, as selfless service, as Christ has loved. If I then washed your feet, you should wash other’s feet for I have given you example to do as I have done to you. This includes any selfless act for serving others just as Jesus did for us. Jesus wasn’t grandiose in His ministry, but are we willing to serve unnoticed and unheralded? We need to find the ministry God has gifted us to serve. Find someone who needs Jesus; find a car to fix; find a house to paint; a lawn to mow and do it in the name of Jesus Christ. Sacrificial, steadfast, selfless love expressed in acts of kindness and ministry to both believers and those who do not know Christ.

Inspiration

People are often unreasonable, , and -; … Forgive them anyway. If you are kind, people may accuse you of selfish, ulterior motives; … Be kind anyway. If you are successful, you will win some false friends and some true enemies; … Succeed anyway. If you are honest and frank, people may cheat you; … Be honest and frank anyway. What you spend years building, someone could destroy overnight; … Build anyway. If you find serenity and happiness, they may be jealous; … Be happy anyway. The good you do today, people will often forget tomorrow; … Do good anyway. Give the world the best you have, and it may never be enough; … Give the world the best you’ve got anyway. You see, in the final analysis, it is between you and God; It was never between you and them anyway. We can do no great things – only small things with great love.
