HOPE HUSTLE

"To this end we toil and strive, because we have our hope set on the living God, who is the Savior of all people, especially of those who believe." -1Timothy 4:10
We don't sell dope. We hustle hope.

Blessed be the LORD! For he has heard the voice of my pleas for mercy.  Psalm 28:6

Heavenly Father, Gracious Lord, Merciful Savior, your kingdom come! Your will be done in the hood as it is heaven. Everyday young brothas and sisters walk the blocks of city streets in search of pleasure but instead find pain. They seek purpose but settle for shiny possessions that won’t bring long term satisfaction. Father, would you be glorified in the hood? Would you make your face to shine on dope boys, ratchet chicks, playas, hustlers, baby mamas, and the fatherless and bring them peace? Dear God, send your church empowered by the Holy Spirit to reach those who are far from you. Save souls in the streets and send them back as missionaries to their streets, blocks, hoods, and cities. I know you hear, and I know you find no delight in the death of the wicked. Make much of your name in the hood. 
In Jesus name,
Amen.  #prayer #God #grace #salvation #peace #love #joy View high resolution

I Used to Love H.E.R. Reflections on (Christian) Hip Hop

bryanloritts:

Common’s joint, I Used to Love H.E.R. is a hip hop masterpiece in which he personifies his frustrations with the then current state of rap in the form of a woman. She (hip-hop) has changed, and Common is not bemoaning her metamorphosis, how could he? Art must change. People change (I’m reminded…

Good word!

Real talk: A friend of mine recently lamented the blessing and curse of podcasts. The blessing is obvious, and the danger is equally so: podcasts can “ruin” us for ordinary pastors. There’s a dangerous temptation to treat podcasts as our pastors, and to forsake biblical community for a hyper-individualized spirituality.

There’s nothing—and I mean nothing—happening on earth that can’t or won’t wait an hour. Or two. Carry that attitude into your work. Namely, don’t be a slave to your phone and other distractions so you can get more done. #suckerfree2014 #hustle #grind #work View high resolution
