Real and Altogether Different

I’ve got a few sensory events happening right now. Avatar is playing in front of me, and I’m trying to figure out how to easily get my mother a Bible application on her Samsung Omnia. I’m debating with the opportunity presented to speak, and the lack of funds around the event that might mark my new initial state with MMM, as well as the trust that will see me through other moments.

Here I’m making plans for a workday trial. Where its not yet the real thing, and I’ve got to be in that part that I will play. I am… a bit unsettled.

Weirdly, Avatar is angering me more than I’m enjoying it. There are emotions that are within the dialogue and cinematics that are touching on feelings that I don’t really share all too often.

Walking in a place where other’s haven’t, and being opened to a world where you are purely more a stranger than a native.

Sometimes, the stories that we are crafted for are slow to unravel. Othertimes, living towards all that you’ve been created to be just sort of happens.

I guess, in some respects I’ve been groomed for this for a long time. And yet, I’ve been in this all along.

And at this moment my family is in the same room, sharing a moment on a mobile ironically.

There is something all too real, and altogether different about this moment.

This is Getting Real

Probably a statement more fit for Twitter than anyplace else, but sitting here with mom and reflecting a bit on the task at hand with MMM, this is getting real – and I’m at a loss towards what’s possible and where God will be taking a bro.

Yes, there’s the fact that I’m moving forward, stretching out and forward to something that I’ve already been doing in part.

And there’s the point that I have no clue about what I’m doing.

And there’s the opportunities that have already presented themselves.

This is getting real. I’m looking at the connections, my wallet, the opportunities, and the consequences of dialing back in fear – yes, this is something of a walk that I’ve never done before. I’m challenged to trust God, and to continue to push forward.

Carnival of the Mobilists #223

Sheesh, this idea of doing MMM full-time has really knocked over some of the energies that I’d like to have set aside for writing. Thankfully, the world doesn’t stop turning and there’s another great week of the Carnival of the Mobilists to set things in order.

This week’s selections (#223) comes from Mobyaffliates and there’s a nice, but short, selection of posts to highlight things this week. Check it out and see what all is going on in mobile.
