Listening is the form of love we fail to use most

The best place to start something is in your heart. Why? Because every beat is a reminder to your body that this is what’s keeping it going! So make sure every passion you have, every desire you hold, and every facet of your life begins with your heart. That’s going to be what keeps you going when it seems like nothing is moving.
I recently had the opportunity to grow myself on an inner city mission trip in Los Angeles California with Athletes in Action. There is where the idea of #Born2BeLight was born.

After I left LA God really put it on my heart to find a way to 1, push people to form some sort of relationship with people who are different then them. And 2, glorify the God given light EVERY person has in them. That’s why I started this the movement called Born2BeLight. I want to push myself and other people to go out of their way and sit down and get to know somebody. Learn their passions, their desires, their hurts, their true needs, learn about the unique light every person has within them. Truly sacrifice our time and give people the opportunity to speak! 

In LA we talked about people not being heard. With this movement I want people to share someone else’s story so more of the world can hear their cries, and their beauty. Their light!… The light they bring to your life!

In order to touch everyone’s life by listening, I will need everyone’s help. I desire for this to be a true movement of people with thousands actively joining in. More than just putting a red X on your hand, or wearing peak once a month, or pouring ice water over yourself. PLEASE hear that I’m not saying that those are not extraordinary causes and organization, I’m just saying I believe in the power of people and some people are being left out.

1st) Everyone go follow the Instagram account @Born2BeLight

2nd) Take some time out of your day or week to get to know someone different then you. Learn a little about them and post a pic of them and their story (light) for others to hear! 

3rd) Use the #Born2BeLight and Tag the movement page in the picture. This way everyone can read about the person you met!! 

Be inspired by the light everyone has in them! And feel free to comment on pictures! 

Listening is the form of love we fail to use

  


Valentine’s Day is too LATE

As a Christian we always hear how we are not saved BY good works, we are saved TO good works. As we put Valentine’s Day behind us I challenge people to take the same approach in their friendships, relationships, and marriages. The truth is that friendships, relationships, and marriages won’t be held together because of what you did for them on Valentine’s Day, but why you do those things the next 364 days! Waiting until Valentine’s Day is far too late!


Love on PEOPLE

“All mornings are like paintings: you need a little inspiration to get going, a little smile to brighten it up, and a small message from someone who cares to help color your day!”

Everyone, be upbeat and enthusiastic today! Remember that every new person that you encounter today speaks volumes about your worth and value. Because imagine if that person were to die tonight, it would mean that their life was fully lived according to God’s plan and their life wasn’t fully complete without first experiencing you and your love. You are unbelievably important to every person’s life around you!
Realize a great way to make someone’s day is to help start it, so wave and smile in the mornings. Pay for a random person’s lunch. Give to someone who’s not expecting to receive from anyone. Take time to listen to people. Laugh with someone rather then at them… Today is filled with opportunities to make someone’s day, but only a few will understand that they are helping complete someone’s life. You do that with how you show and give love. In all that you do, be the blessing that you imagine your future spouse will be to you. And give the love that you can’t wait to pour out on your future kids.


Spread LOVE

What happens in the world, first happens in the hearts of people. Why not use each day to spread some unexpected love to someone?! We are all capable of it, we all deserve it, and we all need it! Let love make the world go round. Challenge yourself each day to be someone who doesn’t over see someone else! People all have a purpose and the beauty that aluminates from them can be brought out by the people who are around them. The problem with so many of us today is that we are waiting on someone to love us before we are willing to show someone else love. Don’t be selfish. Understand that life is fair, it’s people who aren’t. Pursue each day with passion in your heart!
