I have been trying to write this myself and do it in a helpful and purposeful way but Mr. Berding did such a great job that I had to share it. These are my sentiments as well.

Super Bowl 2020 Halftime Report

Did you see the Super Bowl LIV ‘s half time performance?

Yes, it was awesome to note the Latin vibe and it’s representation.

Yes, Jennifer Lopez and Shakira are talented and gifted performers.

Yes, it was awesome to see how they included the young kids…or was it?!

No! No it wasn’t!

In a world where sex trafficking is rampant and the #metoo movement is everywhere, I ask myself, how was tonight’s performance beneficial for those causes?

Tonight’s performance was NOT! Tonight’s performance was NOT pro-women! If anything the costumes, the poles, the cages, the ropes, all enforced and encouraged the behavior that we are trying get rid of! We are not objects, we are not caged creatures, or objects that should be tied up! It only visually enhanced the desired behavior of sex trafficking and of sexual assault.

If this is what we display, how can we tell young girls that we are standing with them, protecting them, and protecting their future? How do we teach young men respect when all we do is disrespect ourselves in front of them?

Tonight’s halftime show was NOT pro-women. Don’t believe it! Don’t buy into it!

You were created for so much more than this!! I encourage you, both men and women, to be beautiful by treasuring the creation that you are and who you are meant to be!

Your Creator, designed you to be so much more than the object the world says you are! I went down a long and challenging road to learn that what the world says is good and beautiful, is detrimental and gut wrenching. Don’t fall for it!!

Be classy.

Be treasured.

Be beautiful.

Stand up and honor your Creator by honoring yourself and others.

Entering into this Christmas season with FAITH and TRUTH

As we enter this holiday season, we taken in all of the beautiful sights, smells and sounds and it is hard not to get lost in the feeling of it all, but we must remember that the story of this Christ child was not born of feelings but of faith and truth. We by faith and by truth know that this child, born in Bethlehem, is our Savior, the One who came to reconcile our debt of sin, in order that we might have eternal life after earthly death.

From my reading this morning: “A person is saved by trusting in the finished work of Christ on the cross, and not by bodily sensations and religious ecstasy. But you will say, “What about feeling? Is there no place in saving faith for feeling?” Certainly, there is room for feeling in saving faith. But we are not saved by it. Whatever feeling there may be is the result of saving faith, but feeling never saved a single soul. Love is feeling. Joy is feeling. Inward peace is feeling. Love for others is a feeling. Concern for the lost is a feeling. But these feelings are not conversion. The one experience that you can look for and expect is the experience of believing in Christ.”-Billy Graham

🚂 Don’t let your feelings be your engine or they will derail you, run your track with faith and truth and you will see that when you “think you can’t”, you actually can!🚂
