Light Friday Hit List: 1/21/11

Rounding up posts from around the web that challenged, inspired, encouraged, made me laugh, or all of the above. Be sure to check out these favorites and tell them I sent you!

And for even more great posts and favorites, be sure to visit Kevin Martineau’s blog as well. The list was a little shorter this week as I was out of town and had a day-off yesterday. Hope you enjoy though!

  • The Why by Michelle DeRusha (Graceful). Not to be confused with the ‘Y’, this post is all about the reasons why we do things and it’s a great reminder.
  • The trouble with fruit by Jon Acuff (Stuff Christians Like). Giving God the best–it’s supposed to be in everything we do.
  • Hey! I pooped! Someone?! by Kely Braswell (Dangerous Breeze). God did say we need to come to Him like little children–what if He meant it?
  • Playing Dead by Billy Coffey (The High Calling).  Practicing dying well is an everyday thing and Billy shows us how it’s done.
  • Do Not Fear by Jason Vana (JasonVana.com). Jason is a new friend and I’ve only been reading his blog for a couple weeks, but I love his passion and commitment to live fearlessly for Jesus. This is just an excellent post.
  • Who Do You Think You Are?! by Melissa Brotherton (MelissaBrotherton.com). Amazing how when God shows up to encourage, the enemy shows up to try to steal it. Great thoughts from Melissa on who we are and why we can hold on to His grace.

Have you ever been so close to an answer only to see it slip out of your grasp? Frustrating right? This week’s random pic (found over here) is sort of a visual illustration of this.

Do you have a favorite post or link you want to share? Ready to discuss  one of my picks?  How would you finish the banner’s thought? (be real or humorous or real humorous)

  1. My personl favorite post of the week is about asking boldly for what we need: http://wp.me/p52ry-hC

    As for how to finish the banner, I have 2 words: Waffle House.

    • That is a great post. And that could be Waffle House’s new slogan--you may be onto something. 🙂

      Thanks!

  2. Thanks Jason! I wasn’t even going to post that post…the encouragement I have received from it is unexpected. Running off to check up on the other posts you’ve listed. 🙂 Have a great weekend!
    Melissa Brotherton recently posted..who do you think you are!My Profile

    • It’s a common thought process for me so I identified so much with the post, but my mind is being transformed and renewed day by day! Thanks Melissa--you too.

  3. These are great post. I especially identified with Melissa’s. So many times I hear the question “Who do you think you are?” I have learned to answer “The daughter of God the Father!” That statement reminds ME that I don’t have to be perfect to be loved. He loves me because I am HIs.

    The secret to happiness is…. not looking to hard for happiness?
    Helen recently posted..Pleasantly Disturbed Thursday- Bun Bun Speaks! Well- Writes ActuallyMy Profile

    • Yep, me too (except I say son instead of daughter). 🙂

      Thanks Helen!

  4. Wow -- thanks for the mention Jason, and the compliments on my blog! I’ve thoroughly enjoyed our comment conversations!
    Jason Vana recently posted..Who is YOUR GodMy Profile

    • I love finding new conversationalists! Thanks for adding so much to my thoughts here and I’m excited to see all God is doing in your life too through your writing (we’re on fairly similar paths at the moment). We can encourage each other!

      Thank you, Jason.

  5. Great list duder.

    The secret to happiness is obviously edible, that’s why it’s missing on the sign.
    Michael recently posted..Insecurity &amp FearMy Profile

    • Thanks Michael. 🙂 Yeah, I figured edible or offensive maybe.

  6. The secret of happiness is apparently fleeting.

    Great list, brother.
    Scott Couchenour recently posted..Are You Coming AlongMy Profile

    • Appears that way! Thanks so much, Scott.

  7. That random pic is awesome!!!!!
    Peter P recently posted..Five Positives and Negatives of Creating a Paperli DailyMy Profile

    • It’s subtle, but I thought it was pretty hilarious. 🙂 Thanks Peter!
