I have been holding my breath waiting to see the movie “The Help” since it was released earlier this month. I finally went this weekend with two friends. Can I just say that this movie not only lived up to the hype and my lofty expectations, but this little movie exceeded both!
Grab a friend or two and treat yourself. One word of warning:
You’ll be craving Southern House Wine (That’s Sweet Tea ya’ll) when you leave.
Ephesians 3:20, “Now all glory to God, who is able, through his mighty power at work within us, to accomplish infinitely more than we might ask or think."
How would you like to be such a failure in life that failure was built into your name?
Bartimaeus was born a failure. His father was considered unclean and the fact that Bartimaeus was blind only confirmed to the Jews that he was a sinner from a family of sinners and a total failure.
However, when Jesus entered the area Bartimaeus called out loudly and continually until
Jesus stopped and addressed him asking him what he wanted.
As Bartimaeus rose from his stooped and humbled position to meet Jesus, he threw off the one thing that screamed his uncleanliness; his cloak. Notice that this blind, unclean “failure” was so confident that Jesus would heal him that he threw his "security blanket" away.
When asked what he wanted, ""the blind man said, 'Rabbi, I want to see.'"(Mark 10:51) "'Go,' said Jesus, 'your faith has healed you.'" (10:52) He received his sight immediately.
Lovely friend, do you feel like you’ve been marginalized by failure? I want to encourage you to throw off your cloak of failure and wrap yourself in the garment of faith.
Remember our new definition for FAIL

Psalm 103: 1-4
" Praise the LORD, my soul; all my inmost being, praise his holy name. Praise the LORD, my soul, and forget not all his benefits—who forgives all your sins and heals all your diseases, who redeems your life from the pit and crowns you with love and compassion,"
