Our Anchor

The theme of "the family" flows throughout the Fast & Furious film series. Have you ever noticed that God can use the little things to shape our minds and our focus. Even while watching this film described to be "largely concerned with illegal street racing, heists, and spies" there are underlying lessons to be gleaned.

Many of us know that the number seven (7) symbolizes completion. We even see this in Furious 7, as Vin Diesel (Toretto) is having a conversation with Paul Walker (Brian) and says "One last ride!". In this film, one of the main characters embraces a change in his life. A change that requires a sacrifice. A change that requires letting go. You see, when we begin to shift our position in life, some of the things we used to do will no longer serve us and we will have to let them go. A new position will sometimes require us to find Our Anchor and lock it in.

On the Beam Podcast - Ep. 13: Our Anchor

When we are anchored in the right things, that anchor creates a rock solid hold. When anchored, there is nothing that can pull us away or separate us from that thing. When we allow the men in our lives to assume their God-given role and purpose, they will serve as an anchor of the family. This becomes possible when we properly accept Christ as the anchor of our lives. This anchor is important because it will allow us to remain grounded no matter what comes our way. This anchor will allow us to have a rock solid foundation. A faith foundation. A foundation that will allow us to see strength, growth, and manifestation even beyond our greatest imagination. Check your anchor and make sure it's secure.

Don't Harbor Unforgiveness

“ His mother left him and his father turned his back on him .” These words struck me like a bolt of lightening. They were words spoken directly to me. They depict a part of my life that I failed to acknowledge. A part of my life that I suppressed. A part of my life that I chose to ignore. Failure to acknowledge. Suppression. Ignoring. None of these things cause the past to flee. These things do not cause the past to change. Nor do they allow for full ability to walk into true purpose and authority. This is not an isolated story. With a human service and child welfare background, I know firsthand that this story is one in a million. But we also see it every day. If you're like me, you sometimes find your escape in movies and television series. Instead of spending time in your own realities, you spend time watching scripted realities. It's an opportunity to disengage ourselves from the characters on the screen. It's a way to passively accept or criticize the s
