What Routinely Blocks Your Hope?

Have you ever sensed that you were being set up for something grand? Something way bigger than you could possibly pull off on your own?
Nine years ago, I had what you might call an epiphany, and what I would consider a spiritual awakening. Back then, I was positioned in a thriving music career, where I was responsible for finding, signing, and developing bands, in what is known in the industry as A&R (Artists & Repertoire) work.
Sometimes my heart wavers more than I want it to, or think it should. A few days ago, I had a still small conversation with Jesus about how much I struggle to surrender. I wondered how it was possible to be a growing Christian of 25 years and yet sometimes simultaneously feel like a wavering skeptic of 25 years.

Condemnation is an Accuser

The day before I left to embark on my 1,500-mile, intensive, nine-day fundraising trip to the New England area––a trip that would end up being about the same distance as driving one way from Los Angeles to Mexico City––I felt hugely defeated. Deflated even. Everything in me was thinking about how I could back out. I wondered what excuse I could come up with that would warrant canceling on countless meetings, without harming a bunch of great friendships. Thankfully nothing sufficient came to mind, and I was forced to press through.
Over the past several years, I’ve hoped to more consistently fulfill 1 Corinthians 4:20: “For the kingdom of God does not consist in talk but in power.” It hasn’t made sense to me how Christianity now could look so different to us compared with when it all started. I’m reading through the Book of Acts again, and the stories of the early church clearly spell 1 Corinthians 4:20. So, what’s wrong with me?

How Hungry Are You?

Over the years, I’ve adopted various methods for coming into a deeper, more focused connection with God. I once quieted myself on a silent retreat for several days at a Catholic monastery in Bourbon County, Kentucky, where most of the Colombia [Esto Es Reino] script was handwritten. Since my college days twenty years ago, I’ve fasted from food on many (though far from all) Fridays. Back in those university days, a friend of mine and I worked at Pizza Hut on Friday nights. We’d push each other to refrain from eating until after the dinner rush - not out of obligation, but rather from a place of desperation to see God moving in our lives.
