DISCLOSURES

Some lawyers stay up at night trying to ruin free society and create new rules. Therefore, here are the disclosures I must have that you probably won't read.

Can you miss your calling in life?

Question: 

"Can you be called and never fulfill your calling?"
Doesn't God work with you, constantly re directing you back to His calling?

Answer: 

"Have you ever known anyone that died without fulfilling their calling?" 

Yes, we all have. Every human on the planet has a call of God on their life, not just a few select people. Every human on the planet is called to something, but we must cooperate with God to see that calling come to pass.

The following is my answer to that question in more detail:


This is a great question and it deserves a great response. It is true that God works with the person and leads them. It is also true that in His Grace He’ll lead them as long as it takes. However it is still always the responsibility of the person to obey. God will lead, but never force.


Luke 6:47-48
“Whoever comesto me, hears my word and DOES them… “ will build his life’s foundation on a rock.

James 1:22
“But be doers of the Word, and not hearers only, deceiving yourselves.”

So we see that if you hear and don’t do you end up self deceived. Thinking the whole time “Why am I not receiving what God said?”

Hebrews 13:17
“Obey those who rule over you, and be submissive, for they watch out for your souls…”

Ephesians 6:13-18
“Take up the armor of God and stand against the wiles of the devil…”

The Word wouldn’t tell us to stand in armor if there wasn’t a fight to be had.

Of course God has given you Grace so that you could have everything you need for life and godliness (2 Peter 1:2-3) So that you would have Grace to have ALL THINGS at ALL TIMES(2 Cor 9:6-12), He has given you the gifts you need to succeed (1 Cor 12, Ephesians 4:11-13) So God is always doing exceedingly and abundantly above and beyond all we ask or think (Ephesians 3:20) So yes, He is always working with us… his mercies are new every morning (Lamentations 3:22-23) But we still have a role to play to see it come to pass. Idle hands lead to poverty (Proverbs 19:15)

For a wild example, it was God’s will for Michael Jackson to live long and fulfill his calling in this earth, it was a calling of his to Glorify God in his craft. He was called to write music for Church and for Secular society that would radically change and inspire people to magnify God. He knew it. He was actually working toward that. “This is it” was to be his last secular album and he was going to start creating worship and praise music and possibly start a new genre that didn’t even fit into those categories because it hadn’t been invented yet.  He had many things that hindered him, many excuses for why he was the way he was, many demons that he invited into his life that he needed to remove, and he died young, not because God wasn’t leading I know some of the people who talked to him about His call. In the end He refused to listen to God’s leading, sowed seed that caught up to him, and died young.

On 9/11 God was speaking to EVERY PERSON to keep them out of harm’s way. Some heard directly, some heard as an impression. Some obeyed and some didn’t. Some didn’t know it was God but just felt a need to stay home. One lady was headed back into the building, after the first hit they said it was all fine to go back in, and she heard God say “RUN GET OUT!” She called to everyone and said to get out and tried to convince everyone to follow her. Some did, and some did not. Those that followed her survived. Moments after the second plane hit the building. Everyone in that lobby had the change to live, not everyone obeyed. More people called in sick that day than in the history of the World Trade Center. 60,000-80,000 people could have died that day, and we only lost about 3,500, if memory serves.

Among the most famous biblical examples: Saul


Saul, the first King of Israel, was given instructions and he did the opposite. Even though God worked a mighty plan to make him king, he died out of the will of God. It is completely possible to not complete your calling. Obedience to His call is required. There is case after case where this is exampled throughout the Word.

There is this strange balance between God’s hand of protection and our obeying His word. If God tells me NOT to go to work via a certain route, I feel strongly about it in my gut, but I go anyway because I’m late to work and it’s the fastest way, then I get in an accident. That is ME not God. He tried to tell me. I didn’t listen. We have a responsibility to heed his Word written and spoken.

So unfortunately although God’s calling is without repentance (Romans 11:29), meaning that it’s NEVER too late to start walking in it, it also requires obedience and you can die without having fulfilled your calling, or even die before your time due to disobedience. Many pastors have been warned about over eating by prophetic words and later died from complications due to obesity because they didn’t obey the Words that were given. The Holy Spirit is our helper, but not our doer. God will always do His part, and always require you do your part. But in His Grace, he makes your part VERY easy! LOL.

Introduction In the beginning, the Word already existed. The Word was with God, and the Word was God. (Immerse, 2017) John, page 399 
Notice that John begins his gospel by calling Jesus, The Word. We find Words, and the stories they create for us, impact us at a level that is beyond our cognitive ability to understand in the moment. Being caught up in a story can make you lose all sense of present, and be transported to another time and place (and sometimes another world entirely).

Ever since Aristotle observed that stories had a beginning, a middle, and an end, the science of story has been developed and studied. Our modern sensibilities tell us at a gut level whether a story “works” or i…

I am a story teller! Time to flex my story telling...

In the spirit of sharing what I'm up to this weekend, here is a short scene I posted on my fiction blog a while back. This is being used an example for a new trial project I'll talk about at the end of this post.


The Closet (originally posted on my fiction practice blog here). 
It was the sound. It washed over his mind, like a shower on the inside. Water landing on pavement, concrete, and wood; as though beating a million tiny drums. The distant sound of the tiny river, washing down the sidewalks into the gutters. Ash always slept with the window open, but most especially on rainy nights.

We are no closer now to getting to the bottom of this, than we were when it started.

The rest of the house was asleep, but he couldn't find sleep. The air shifted slightly, and he felt he wasn't alone. Ash sat up straight, and at the edge of his bed sat a man. He was wearing blue jeans, a T-shirt, and a well kept beard. His hair was pulled back into a pony tail, and he smiled. The man'…

I am a WRITER!

WRITERI am a writer:Yesterday was incredible! I received revelation and clarity for 2014. I AM A WRITER! Jeff Goins talks about making that declaration being the most revolutionary part of his career. Everything changed when he decided that. It's amazing what clarity will do for you.

I was being torn between what I was becoming passionate about and what I thought I was supposed to be doing. For years everyone has told me that I should be a musician and in audio mixing. I pursued that career this year. I even took an audio course. I know that is still part of my calling. Music and Audio is in there somewhere. But it's not my focus for 2014. I am a writer. I'm going to explore that solely this year.

The moment of realization hit me when my wife, who has always seen more in me than I see in myself turned to me pointed out that even during my audio class I didn't talk about it. I didn't read the books and find new books and get "into it". It was mostly focused …
