And he reached out to us and said, we need you. And I said, okay, what did, he said, our task force in Egypt. We see some things that horrific. Some of us have had two, three, four marriages, the PTSD. And I need to see, Oh my gosh, Lord, unless a vision falls to the ground and dies. It can’t be born again. So when choosing love ministry was actually truthful of ministry international, when I first founded it and I began to understand, well, wait, Homeland security rate, just some different things I took international out of it became truth and love ministries. And the Lord had me how you were saying in the intro, how it’s important that we don’t lose our faith.
It’s really just kind of it’s it’s it’s, it’s hurting our heart. That said, we knew as followers of Jesus Christ, that we were going to come into times like this. We knew this is going to happen, but how many times, how many of you out there know those moments? When you know something bad is going to happen or something crazy is gonna happen. Something ungodly is gonna happen, but it doesn’t change the sting. When it actually does, you can prepare yourself all you want. It’s like when you’re going to go get a shot at the doctor or go to the dentist, you can mentally prepared for the dentist, but until you have that drill coming in your mouth, you know, it’s like, it’s really hard to get prepared.
“Sir, do you have any questions?”
I left the doctor’s office abruptly, determined to erase all of this from my memory. I deserve this and everything bad that is going to happen, I thought to myself. What is the quickest way to die? I went home, poured a glass of tequila, and called my dealer.
You know, it’s interesting too, about a film set. And I compared this to a group of people that had no clue of what I was talking about the other day, but a film set operates the way the body of Christ is supposed to operate everybody walking in their gifts. They’re there to serve because our gifts are not about us. Our gifts are for other people. We just get to use them. And it brings us joy and purpose and happiness, but a film set like literally everyone stays in their lane.
It’s not about what the other person is doing. There’s no judging. You stay in your lane, you do it in excellence. And that’s what you do. And you’re there to serve, which is interesting because you know, the film industry gets all of it. You know, it has such a bad name for being evil, but it literally operates like the body of Christ better than churches do
Well, for me in my experience with truth is that even if I wasn’t lying, but if I was hiding something, if I was hiding a piece of my testimony, I was hiding something that God had done for me. If I was hiding that, that was just as good as lying. It took years for me to figure out that the secrets that I was keeping were actually my gift to the world.
On this Gratitude:UnFiltered, our guest is late so Joshua T Berglan speaks about the George Floyd trial, the riots in Minneapolis, the future of media, and other things on his heart.
had been to California so many times in the last year that I had established enough friendships and business relationships to feel comfortable there, but this was different. Pulling around those mountains to merge onto the 405 sent a surge of energy through my spine. I had been sober for several days, other than weed that is, but I don’t really count that as a drug…at least there had been no meth or blow. I was motivated, pumped up, and ready to take on the world.
