How to Change a Heart

If you follow celebrity news, you know that seems to be the place where “The Ministry of Correction” happens the most.  

There’s one new celebrity mom that's being criticized for her weight, slow weight loss, and even what her baby is wearing in pictures.  It breaks my heart.  I will always defend a mama.  

This kind of thing reminds me of the song "Losing" from Tenth Avenue North.  Because that’s what happens when we are so quick to point out the wrongs of others, as people of faith, we loose.   

You may not agree with the way she lives her life, but it doesn't give you permission to tear her down.  

"Losing" is a challenge not to point it out because that’s what everyone expects Christians to do.  Which is why some people run from the church.  

The lyrics are:  "Why do we think hate is going to change a heart?"  

It makes you think about the greatest commandment.  It’s not to criticize, it’s just to love.  

More lyrics:  “This is love, this is hate, we all have a choice to make.”

We all do it though.  Maybe just trying not to do it as much is progress.  Imperfect progress...

"I love life"

"Your greatest limitation is God's greatest opportunity.” -Steven Furtick (Elevation Church)

If you've ever felt ruined, because of your past, or limitations, here's someone that's proving that doubt, wrong!

Aimee Copeland, 24, is the young woman from Georgia who got that flesh eating bacteria and lost her hands, and legs.  

You might have seen her yesterday on Katie Couric’s new show yesterday. 

Katie asked her:  "was there ever a point that you said, I can't do this, I'd rather die?"

She flat out said, "No! That was never an option to me.  I love life.  It's a beautiful thing, it's something I never take for granted anymore..."
