This is not the end. #Restoration
Therapeutic venting via music.
I partnered with #masksforthepeople to help bring restoration to our incarcerated brothers and sisters. Our goal is to raise $50k to provide free face mask and sanitizer kits to thousands of incarcerated loved ones in the state of GA. Every dollar donated to this mission will be matched by #masksforthepeople doubling our impact. Click the link in my bio to learn more and donate today.
The leaders once tried to silence the voice of the people. Jesus responded, “If they keep quiet, the stones will cry out.” (Luke 19:39-40 ) The historical context of this is interesting. They people chanted “Hosanna!” In front of a Roman Empire because they believed their political savior had come. Their liberator of years of oppression and prejudice had come. He didn’t bring that kind of liberation however. He still wanted them to acknowledge that salvation had come. Today I am hopeful that our voice brings change. But If we choose to be silent....may the stones cry out. No violence. No looting. Just using our voice. #georgefloyd #breonnataylor
The very words that guided Harriet Tubman, that fueled Fredrick Douglas, and gave infinite wisdom to Dr. King. We have access to them. These Christian leaders were not inactive, but their action was informed by their faith.
Learn to do good; seek justice, correct oppression; bring justice to the fatherless, and plead the widow's cause,” (Isaiah 1:17 ).
My mama marched in the 60s and 70s. She took me to my first protest as a child after Rodney King was beaten unjustly. I protested in Ferguson. I protested for justice of #mikebrown #freddiegray #tamirrice #ericgarner #sandrabland #philandocastile and others over the last 4 years. Here we are again. Violence and mayhem did not bring their lives back or bring justice. We need real plans. We need more than tweets. We need solidarity. We need the walls around this proverbial Jericho to fall. Yes Christians we need Jesus, but Jesus calls YOU to be hands and feet. My heart breaks but I’m not hopeless. I anticipate God raising up more people to put aside their fears and doubts. I anticipate God dealing with the evil and complacency. I pray for people who are unashamed to say “send me Lord, I’ll go.” This is going to be a marathon not a sprint.
If for any reason as their earthly father I can’t keep my promises, They have greater promises that cannot be broken._ I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.” John 16:33
Buildings are burning, blood is on the leaves, people are upset. My son asked me last night “what did we do to be hated so badly?” Now I know where my mind and heart can go so I’m protecting my sanity. I’m staying proactive, training my kids for a cruel world, praying, lamenting, reading, and consoling my hurting brethren. Love somebody well today. Sacrifice your time, talents, and treasures for a hurting soul. #georgefloyd
Let’s keep it real.

Our first family outing since quarantine. Thanks to @topgolf for the hospitality. They went the extra mile. Had masks, cleaned all the clubs, and put up protective barriers between bays. Now I can get back to enjoying my mediocre golf career.
I wanna hear what y’all can do! This weekend, we’re doing the Set Me Free Remix Challenge. Go to the link in my bio to download the track, then send a video of you doing your thing to SetMeFreeRemix @gmail .com by Monday night! I just may FaceTime a few of y’all directly to let you know what I think 🤷🏾♂️
Secure the bag.
Those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint. This Is Not The End.
This morning the world lost a husband, father, leader, and friend. You are seeing wonders we can only imagine. You are in the presence of glory we can’t comprehend. Your legacy on earth continues. 🙏🏽
Genesis 1:27, "God created man in his own image..." Human beings are in the image of God in their moral, spiritual, and intellectual essence. We reflect God's divine nature. These unique qualities make humans different than all other creatures: rational understanding, creative liberty, the capacity for self-actualization, and the potential for self-transcendence. When we limit people to objects, stereotypes, or past behaviors we strip them of being Image bearers. #AhmaudArbery was made in the image of God. Remember him. Cry for his family. Plead with God and fight for truth to prevail.
We’re all lockdown but we can still be Set free! (Video and song link in bio )
