God Uses Batman To Say I Love You!

Batman Means: "I Love You!"

Batman Hiding In The Soundboard:


Some time ago I was working on the Digico SD7 sound board @+GatewayPeople Church, in Southlake TX.  As we went over all the settings for the set list that night, it occurred to me that the setting on one of the Cajon mics looked like.... Batman!

My oldest has really been into Batman, so I brought the picture home to show him, and he really enjoyed it! Some might call this random.

I See God. 


I don't believe in random. There is no such thing as luck, ever.

There are three forces at play in this world, and none of them are random.

  • God's Kingdom: (always brings good/blessing). 
  • Satan's kingdom: (always brings theft, killing, and destruction). 
  • Man's Free Will: (the most random element of the three, responds to these).
When these three come crashing down on each other things go flying in different directions.

Yet in the midst of it all... GRACE is there.

I See Opportunity


Grace gave me the gift of Batman to bring home to my son. Grace gave my son a gift, not just of Batman, but a moment with his father to laugh and smile. That moment may, or may not, ever become a conscious memory for him; however, it will be an impression on his heart/spirit. As those impressions build they will create in him a force which will propel him into his future.

I was reminded today that my son doesn't belong to me, he belongs to God! Tweet That!

I am but his steward, his shepherd.

I am here to tend to him, feed him, train him, keep him safe, provide an environment where he can grow up to hear God for himself. I am to train him in the Spirit, so that by the time he is old enough to make his own choices in the world, he is a force to be reckoned with. The Kingdom of God will be so strong in him, that darkness cannot stand in his presence, or in the presence of his generation.

If I never minister to another single person, he (and my wife, my other son, and any other kids to come) are to be, and remain, my first priority. They are to be the first ones to receive any good thing the Father has put in me. Only when they are prospering through my ministry to them, can I minister to others in any meaningful way.



I See Love and Grace


I choose today, to stop... and smell the roses.

I choose to be less hurried. I choose to get up a little earlier and spend time waiting on God.

Being STILL, and knowing He is God! 

I choose to see the patterns that others miss.

When I see God doing something I'll be sensitive to it, and listen to Him for it, and see what He is doing for me, to me, through me. I'll see what He wants to say, or how I can participate.

God might be sending me a ground breaking message to take to Africa today... OR... he might just be showing me Batman, to demonstrate a message to a little boy:

He loves you... just like you are!

Foundations Class #2 Levels of Change

Foundations Class #2Levels of ChangeBob HampClass can be seen on GatewayPeople.ComStarts with two stories...1. True Story. He had driven out to help his aunt who had a flat tire. He used a metric lug wrench on an American car, it wouldn't work so he forced it, stripping out all the lugs. He used the wrong tools to try to fix the problem and trying harder made it worse.

2. Potty Training Parable. You have an infant and shortly after you realize that the child needs his/her diaper changed. So you change it and it gets dirty again, and you change it, and it gets dirty again... Constant change but nothing changes. Then you get a higher order of change. Potty training. Once the child is potty trained you no longer have to change the messes anymore. A higher order of change has over-ridden the former things.
It is this type of change we are referring to with "Levels" of change. Not levels as in: When I pass 1st grade I will be in 2nd grade. It's not linear change, progressiv…

The W Story Structure - 4 Sequence Story Structure

Out of everything I've ever read on story structure for fiction writing, the W-Story Structure makes the most sense to me. If you'd rather view these as Acts (3-Act or 4-Act) you can overlay that on this W and it still works.



Glen C. Strathy writes (in much more detail here) in his article, The W-Plot vs. The Dramatica Model of Story Structure. There are four sequences for most stories. Each of the four legs of the W is comprised of a sequence of events that lead the story along to it's natural conclusion.

Sequence 1: setting up the problem (creating tension)Sequence 2: recovering from the problem (new ideas, positive momentum)Sequence 3: deepening of the problemSequence 4: the resolution of the problem (new light or understanding)

Sequence 1: setting up the problem (creating tension)
The Inciting Event (the event that is at the heart of the reason this story happened) may have occurred before your story begins, and often does. In King Arthur: Legend of the Sword (2017), th…

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…

Reflection Paper: Mere Christianity by C.S. Lewis

Reflections of Mere Christianity
This is a reflection paper of the text Mere Christianity (Lewis, 1952, 1980). The content was first delivered as radio broadcast material between 1942-1944 by Clive Staples “CS” Lewis. Lewis then gathered the materials and published them as three sperate works, later combining and editing the text that became Mere Christianity. With the mind of a scholar and the mouth of a layman, Lewis takes us through the various topics that affect our lives as Christians and provides practical break-downs of how we are to treat each topic, supplemented by a host of modern parallels and parables. He is careful not to take any position that is not laid solidly in the Word of God, leaving those positions that are controversial within the Church either without an opinion or a well-deserved analysis of each side. However, far from a dry treatment of theology, Lewis gives us a laugh through each turn as he cuts through the heady stuff for the “why behind” each discussion…
