Reckless Abandon?

Reckless Abandon...with all your heart, soul, mind, and strength...Mark 12:30.

Reckless Abandon...with all your heart, soul, mind, and strength...Mark 12:30.

So what does “Reckless Abandon” mean? Basically it means to do something without regard for the consequences. My goal is to have faith to follow God with reckless abandon wherever He leads me. Like the surfer in this image (click the picture for the full size version), fear and excitement should coexist in the decision to ride the wave, and choosing to follow Christ should be a similar adventure.

I know I will continue to fall short, but I will continue to pray for the courage and the faith to walk through the open doors He sets before me, to speak boldly when He provides the oportunity, and to act bravely when circumstances require it. I hope you will consider joining me on this journey.

      It is a life-long pursuit.

    Love that verse! What is interesting is that I make Bible verses with images that I send out to freinds, family coworkers etc, that are motivational or inspirational, and I’ve used this very same picture, though for a different verse: Joshua 1:9

    “Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the LORD your God will be with you wherever you go.”

    Honestly, I think what you’re doing is GREAT! Whether “Reckless Abandon,” “Advent Conspiracy,” and similar ideologies are a refreshing take on finding our “Higher Power.” I went to Catholic grade school and high school, obviously raised Catholic. So, this means weekly Catholic mass which I wasn’t particularly thrilled to attend every sunday or any sunday for that matter. When I came back home after college, I stumbled upon “Windsor Crossing” in my home town of Chesterfield, MO and was both confused and intrigued. Very much unlike the “mass” I was accustomed to, but intrigued, even looking forward to Sunday Worship every week. I recently moved to Austin, TX and have not been able to find something similar. Recent life events have caused my questioning “God’s Will” and if anyone knows of a place of worship like the one previously described, I would greatly appreciate your help! God Bless!

      Eric,
      Thanks for the note. There are some great churches in the Austin area like Austin Stone Community Church, Gateway Church, and Celebration Church. I’ve worked with all of them on projects and think you would find an atmosphere and style similar to what you had at The Crossing. Let me know where you end up.

    the power of Yadah Praise. Our Heavenly Father delights and desires our Yadah Praise; we in turn crave and covet His divine blessings.

    Yadah praise is used to celebrate God joyfully and with reckless abandonment.

    Great to find a like-minded blogger out there! I especially liked your latest message on not being two-faced or lukewarm towards God. It’s so important.
