Guest Post On His Excellent Grace – “When The Chips Are Down!” By TJ From Don’t Label My Kid!

Attention please to all of our followers and visitors. This is a guest post I wrote for a brand new blog out called – His Excellent Grace – here on WordPress.

It is a blog about people’s personal encounters with God’s grace and events that occurred in their life where they feel God intervened in their circumstances in miraculous way. I am asking you all to check it out and follow the link at the end of this post to get there. You need not be a Christian to want to read about the incidents that take place and are documented, no more than you must be a cop to watch Cops!

So whether atheist, agnostic, tree worship person or what, everyone will enjoy reading about these different times in people’s lives when they believe God intervened with His grace. I am Tj at Don’t Label My Kid! and this is my personal story of one time I felt that God had intervened on my behalf. And by the way, anyone of you who would like to share a short post about God’s grace in your life is invited to fill out the contact sheet with your attached testimony!

grace definition

Like most, I have been the recipient many times over of God’s excellent grace and I will share an example here today. Grace comes in all shapes and sizes and I have experienced much of both. This story is about my sons, Micah and Jesse. I was divorced when my two boys were young, so we did the weekend thing and they stayed at their mothers during the week. The divorce, as most do, took a huge toll on all involved, the boys were feeling in the middle and struggling with the whole thing.

I was a strong Christian at the time, but I daily worried that due to some of my own struggles that they would not have interest in “My Jesus”.

me and the boys

My boys were not exactly seeing me “walk the walk” all the time, and even though we were in church almost every Sunday, and I knew the word of God, I still was modeling behaviors that confused them and I was worried they would reject Christ when they were a few years older just because of what they saw in me. But I prayed all the time for the healing of memories for them, and for the breaking of generational curses of addiction that had come from up my family line. I just hoped somehow through my mess they would see a message and through my tests, they would see a testimony. Despite my struggles I had seen miracles and knew the power of God.

I knew that they needed to experience God for themselves and prayed often that God would reveal Himself to them so no matter what they had seen of me in my past they would come to the Lord because of their own experiences. That prayer was answered in both my boys lives on one occasion after a church service. They were maybe 10 & 8 years old. I had decided to stop at the Chinese place by the beach on the way home and eat some lunch. On the way. I asked my son Micah what he learned in Sunday school. He said “We learned about God’s favor, and how we Christians can have it.” I was happy to hear he was learning good solid biblical teaching. I was not, however, prepared for what was to come next.

As we pulled into the parking lot, Micah looks over to me and says, “Hey dad, lets pray for favor in the restaurant!” “Huh?” I was struggling for an answer and I thought he would forget in a minute. Nope. As we parked the truck he looked over at me again and said “What about the favor? Pray for it dad!” I was up against a wall. By now my younger son Jesse had become intrigued with this whole favor thing, and was also staring me down for an action prayer. I said, “You know son, God loves the prayers of the little children! You should pray!” It wasn’t that I was afraid to pray, I just could not think of how God could give us favor in a restaurant.

So Micah said a short prayer like “Dear God, please let us have some of your favor in here, Amen.” Precious – Yet very scary to me. What could possibly happen? We would each be given an extra fortune cookie? I just could not see it but I had no choice. His childlike faith was expectant. I was so encouraged by his faith but did not want him to be let down.

In this case, it was me with the little faith. While I doubted and worried I was about to see a life changing experience for my two boys that to this very day they recall vividly. It set a foundation for their faith and it was the answer to my prayer that they would both experience God. To me, I know also God was dropping some Excellent Grace on me because what happened was exactly what I wanted, a personal experience for them.

So here is what happened the moment we left the truck after the prayer; I opened the door for them to walk in and we waited about three minutes for the hostess. I was still more frustrated than a hornet trapped in an old Coke can, just trying to imagine what favor we could get before we left. The hostess came and grabbed three menus and asked us to follow her. We walked to the table she stopped at, waiting for her to lay the napkins or whatever down, and let us be seated. She didn’t do that though. Instead, she took a glance at all of us with a very serious look on her face, and then she reached around me to tap Micah on the shoulder.

Obviously curious what was going on, I totally stuck my face right in the way to hear what she was to say to him. What business does she had with my 10-year-old? She proceeded around me and looked Micah dead in the eye and serious as a heart attack and said. “Sugar, you are eating for free today!” No reason, rhyme or even explanation! She just walked away as if nothing unusual had taken place.

I was kind of numb about it at first thinking only of how come she picked him. Duh, she picked him because he prayed with the faith of a child for favor and sure enough he got it. That incident was one of the most powerful testimonies my kids ever saw and we still talk about it once in a while today. Not only did God grant me answered prayer about my children not running from Him, but He went further and straight up did a miracle for a 10-year-old who asked for it. Simple, simple faith it was.

To this day I count that incident as a shining example of how God gave me something I did not deserve, a miracle for my boys to see that solidified their faith in God at a very young age. It may not work the same in every situation, but it did that day, and I needed a second chance for their faith to not be crushed by past circumstances. To this day, now in their 20’s, they are both grounded and rooted in the Christian faith. I am so very grateful God showed up and showed off with His Excellent Grace on that day.

So I Did A Good Deed And Rescued A Cat…But…

First I found out my new cat Jordy hates the paparazzi. No love for the camera or the cameraman at all.

(See video clip)

Then I thought well that’s probably normal. I’ll just lay him down on the couch and teach him few commands from his master.

It all started good with a nice lifting up and picture taking time of my new pet. But soon after I found out that he was teaching me the rules. When we laid down he was fine when I talked about rewards and food. However as you can see each time I spoke of any rule , his paws seemed to get very close to my j

Don’t Push Your Beliefs On Me Please.

I have reached a point in the last year that I am going to act on some things that have been just eating me up for some time. There are several things I could go into, but I am sticking with the one that is bothering me and doing the most damage to society in general to write about today. The issue is concerning your personal beliefs and my right not to have them shoved down my throat everywhere I go. Many of you already know where I am going with this but I encourage to read through this anyhow.

Each day I leave my house I see my neighbors taking their kids to school and it never fails they have a kid with a tee-shirt on preaching it. I send my kids to school and sure enough even on the walls of the hallways I see posters and other signs of it. I go to the store and I see this brain washing going on in the clothing section, the toy section and even the checkout girl will sometimes have a shirt on or a button on with this propaganda on it. I cannot take my family to a movie anymore because it seems these days there is almost always a movie on the marquis about this guy.

If you choose to idolize and worship this imaginary dude, do so on your own time, because I should not have my family be forced to see it, read about it and be given tickets to your ” conventions” and events to celebrate your pretend friend which in my opinion is for the weak-minded. We do just fine in life without your crutch.

I am formally announcing the formation of a group to ban together and pool our resources to fight for these symbols . If it takes every penny we have we need to live in a free world where our kids are not brainwashed by these cult groups who feel a need to create some pretend friend in the sky who can fly around in the air and watch over cities and people who follow him. As a matter of fact do you people have any idea how many billions of dollars are spent each year to buy all these trinkets and shirts and look a like figures? Its amazing.

The other day I was in the grocery and the two teenagers behind my family and I in line were blabbing about him right in public! Blah Blah Blah  I had to remind my kid’s after words that those guys were  really out there and had mental health issues.

superman

Anyways I am appealing to all of you to join my group to advocate for the separation of Superman and state.

That is what this country needs. Some formal opposition to the belief of this ” superman”. Why should we have to see posters of him in our schools and on our backpacks. Why should I have to be subject to that ridiculous image of their ” superman” at almost every place I go?


So what do you all think? What do you mean it s a dumb idea because Superman does not exist? Does this mean it would be valid only if Superman was truly real? If it was truly irritating to some people because they would rather not hear his name, much less see his face?

If you think it is a dumb idea to propose a ban on Superman propaganda and get the name out of schools and public places, then you surely know Superman does not exist. Therefore it would be silly to spend millions of dollars to avoid hearing or seeing his image anywhere, right?

And so the same applies to Jesus Christ correct? If you really think about it, the only reason anyone would want to pay millions to avoid the name of Jesus, would be to ease the conscience – correct?

The truth of all this is that as the Bible states, we all have knowledge of God. The only reason anyone would make any effort to squash the name of Jesus or prevent yourself from being exposed to Him or His word, would be to temporarily avoid Him at any cost. But what about when this life ends for you? How will you sidestep judgement? You cannot.

I challenge all of my atheist and agnostic friends to revisit their motives and consider asking the one you are running from to catch you before your permanent fall…

After all according to the bible, those who run from and ignore God will pay a hell of a price..what have you to lose by taking Jesus up on His offer to be forgiven anyway? 

Are you afraid you might end up in heaven ?

Desperation and insecurity. These are terms that describe people who feel the need to let others know about any connections to famous people they may have.

It would be easy for any of us to reach into our bag- o -tricks and drop some connection we have. But what really is to gain from it?
