Let's do "Something Big"...

“Attempt something so big for God that it is sure to fail without Him.”

On this great feast of the conversion of St. Paul, I have spent some time today in prayer and reflection on this past week and it's significance. Then I heard the song "Something Big" by artist John Waller confirming what God had whispered in my heart this morning. We are called to do SOMETHING BIG for Christ. 

On Tuesday, we inaugurated the first African-American President of this great nation hopefully healing old racial divides. Barrack Obama's life is a great American story showing the promise that this country has to offer to all who wish to work hard to achieve their dreams. God has allowed this for a reason. 

Unfortunately, my joy is greatly tempered because of his policies and how he wishes to govern this country. This was glaringly obvious during his inaugural speech where he forgot to use the word "life". He has made his intentions clear with his promise to Planned Parenthood to sign the hideous F.O.C.A. act. This completely clouds anything I may feel about the historical significance of his presidency. 

Two days after he was sworn in, the National Mall was once again filled with people, this time supporting LIFE. What was so wonderful about this day for me was to see so many young people present. This is the generation that has survived abortion. Their mothers made the choice for LIFE, and praise God that they did. They chose to walk in faith not knowing their future but trusting in God's plan for their children's lives. 

Did anyone else notice that there were no counter protesters? There was no one screaming at me saying I was wrong and that I should keep my opinions to myself. Why was that? Because they think they have won the war. They take President Obama at his word and feel certain that he will sign F.O.C.A. and our right to protest will be gone, forever! The genocide will continue and we will be powerless to stop it. 

Well I am NOT powerless and I will do whatever I can to make my voice heard and pray that with God's help we can do something BIG, we can prevent this legislation from going through. In Him all things are possible, so why can't we prevent F.O.C.A. and overturn Roe V. Wade?

So let's do this BIG THING for Christ! Let's prevent this horrifying legislation and save millions of lives in the name of our Creator. Let's allow God to work through our prayers, fasting and sacrifice to defeat this evil. Click here to sign the F.O.C.A. petition. Call your congressman and senators asking them to vote against ANY pro-choice legislation that is brought forth, especially F.O.C.A. Consider offering holy hours and family rosaries for this cause. We need to STORM the Gates of Heaven unceasingly!

Will it be easy? No way. Nothing that is worth achieving ever is. Ask St. Paul. He was beaten on a daily basis for his belief in one true God and yet he persevered, he never gave up, for he knew that the war was already won by Christ's death on the cross. Evil will never prevail, for Jesus has already paid the ultimate price. Be Big! Be Bold! Trust God and step out in faith! Fight the good fight and never give up!

"Something Big"
John Waller
“Attempt something so big for God that it is sure to fail without Him.” I’m not sure who first spoke these words, but they’ve never left me. I believe the desire to be a part of something greater than ourselves is built into the core of each one of us. That’s the reason I left Georgia to become the worship pastor of a church plant in south Denver called “Southlink.” I believe that this song will strike a chord with many visionary dreamers who are contemplating stepping out and doing something that only God can truly do through them. In his book, “Visioneering,” Andy Stanley said, “A divine vision done God’s way and in God’s timing is sure to succeed.”

I wanna see something I've not seen
Something so big
I wanna be a part of something great
Greater than me

It's time to dream big dreams
To see Your vision
Become reality
‘Cause it’s for You, by You, those who
Love You wanna do

Something so big
It’s destined to fail without You, Lord
It’s gonna fail without You, Lord
Something so great
It takes a miracle to do
We, Your children
Wanna do something big for You

We, yes, we are gonna sing a brand new song
Something so strong
We will be the sound that wakes the dawn
Something so loud

It’s time for breaking through
‘Cause there are no limits
For he who holds the truth
When it’s for You, and by You, and those who
Love You wanna do

Something bigger, something greater
For the glory of Your splendor
Something bigger, something greater
Tell the story of Your wondrous love
Your wondrous love
Those who love You wanna do

As long as we live, let us do something so big for You
