Secret Stories

You have to give up to go up. Especially on March 3rd.

under Secret Stories, Written on February 24, 2012

It’s called the Law of Sacrifice – You need to give up to go up (Thanks John Maxwell).

  • Next Saturday at our Your Secret Name Conference, you could learn how to be more free.
  • You could learn more about who you are and whose you are.
  • You could learn more about your purpose and destiny.

But to do that, you’d have to give up something.

  • Time
  • Money
  • Routine
  • Staying Home

But most would rather not. So most people get exactly what they want – nothing. They don’t want freedom, hope, or purpose enough to invest in it. They don’t believe in themselves, enough to make a change. And so they stay the same.

If you’re willing to invest $30 and 8 hours in your future, then join us next Saturday March 3rd in Powell. And if you’re not completely satisfied I will refund your ticket, no questions asked.

Need proof that it’s worth your sacrifice? Read these 10 testimonies or watch this video.

I want to thank you for coming to LBC this past week. I must say, I wasn’t planning on going to chapel this week due to the many projects I have due in the next few weeks. But, for whatever reason, I decided to go, and was absolutely captivated by your words.

I decided to go hear you speak on Wednesday night in the chapel, and truly thought that it would go in one ear and out the other, but I prayed that God would allow something you say to change me. I’m not emotional – never have been, but cried when you said to invite God into the painful situation I went through.

I have always given myself the name “Ugly,” because that’s what my mom told me one night when I was in Kindergarten. I was 5 then. I’m 21 now, and have lived with that name for 16 years. I’ve been bulimic/anorexic for 8 years… because I’ve always seen myself as ugly. Wednesday night, God gave me the name “Beautifully Created.”

As I was praying that night, God reminded me of many verses that I haven’t thought about for years… Psalm 139:14-16 and Psalm 45:11. I’m so thankful to have had you here at LBC to speak. If it weren’t for God bringing you here, I would still have the name Ugly. I pray that God blesses you richly for the way you have blessed me.

Every second of every single day, is a battle. A battle between myself and society, and often a battle within my own mind.

All I can do is pray, and hope for happier times to come around, to lift me out of this dark period of my life. It was only by God’s grace that I found him in my heart. It was something that came to me so quickly, and is still something very new to my life. I may not be the best Christian, but I know in my heart that I have God’s love, and if I am with him, he will always help and guide me.

To the world I may be depressed, but in God’s eyes I am hope. I may be known as Gay to this world, but in his eyes, I am complete.

Resistance Movement

A “Hard Rock” group (Resistance Movement) emailed me recently and told me that Your Secret Name inspired them to write a new song called Secret Name. Although this style might not be your norm, I encourage you to check out their new album The Great Constant.

The lyrics to the song are below. Or you can find them on Facebook or MySpace

Secret Name

I can see the lights muffled bright
Off in the Distance
Try as I might, Dig in my heels
I can’t resist them
I can feel the wind Rushing fast
I’ve closed my eyes dear
Here take my hand, hold it so tight
I’m not sure where we’re going
Consider this: we are what we do
We are what we’ve done
All the things we’ve said
Will tell us if we’re dead
So if we reach that place
The place amongst the living
Will you keep us there?
We’re here for the saving
My heart has things
Worth undoing
Both my lungs
Have started losing

I’ll ignore the Labels
I will turn the tables
I won’t stay the same
Hear my secret name

I am a Christian who has struggled with alcoholism.  This is something that I was born with and is mine to own and fight.  With God and his spirit inside me and as a member of AA I can put this horror to sleep.  I can’t kill it, but it can be kept asleep.

I have always been lifted in this fight with the strong sense of a mission God has for me.  A mission that can only be pursued with a sober mind and soul.  I may not have a sense of where this mission will take me in detail, but I do know the direction.  My secret name is “Mission.”
