“To Be Seen and Understood And To Be Not So Very Lonely”: A Cry For Jesus Christ


This blog entry was written a few months back.

I don’t watch The Oscars or the Golden Globe Award shows.

For one, they are too political, and too filled with bad politics, if there can ever be good politics.

They are also either too scared or envious or jealous of Sarah Palin.

I say this because some at the Oscars have an obsession to imitate Sarah Palin year after year, as if they have an unmet need to be her!

Boring, or they must be bored!

This morning I perused through the media before praying, which  I no longer do, since it has lost most credibility.

Any media outlet that is obsessed with the trial of the Boston Marathon bombers, yet conceals the trial of a worse bomber, abortionist Kermit Gosnell, has no credibility left. Time to move on.

Anyways, I was seized by Jodie Foster’s words as she received the Cecil B. De Mille Award at the Golden Globes.

“But it will be my writing on the wall. Jodie Foster was here, I still am, and I want to be seen, to be understood deeply and to be not so very lonely.”

This was my un articulated prayer in early 1979.

Christ understands me more deeply than I understand myself.

If only Jodie would get that revelation.

“To be not so very lonely”

Ahh yes. I understand what it is to be so very lonely.

I was  an unmarried and  celibate Christian for nine years before my lovely wife Mary came.

But in that loneliness, Jesus Christ told me, “ Become married to Me.:

He took all my loneliness away to the point that I could have happily been single for the rest of my life.

The cure for loneliness is to be filled  with the Holy Spirit.

It looks like this is hers, as well.

Thirty four years later, I confidently affirm that Jesus Christ has impeccably answered it and even more, so much more!

He is my all in all.

My prayer is that Jodie will find what I found, for she will know that her desires will be fully satisfied, through my best friend and hers, Jesus Christ. Amen!

I’m Gonna Kill The Bear


Charles:    We’ll have to distract him and trap him, but it can be done.
Do you believe it, Bob?
You believe it?
Robert:    I don’t know Charles.
I don’t think it’ll work.
Charles:   It will work!
Robert:    No!
Charles:   It will work.  What one man can do another can do.
Robert:    You can’t kill the bear, Charles.  He’s…
He’s ahead of us all the time, like he’s reading our minds.
He’s stalking us, for God’s sakes!
Charles:   You want to die out here, huh? Well, then die.
But I tell you what… I’m not gonna die. No, sirree. I’m not gonna die. No, I’m gonna kill the bear. Say it, “I’m gonna kill the bear. I’m gonna kill the bear!” Say it!
Robert:   I’m gonna kill the bear.

This dialogue comes from a great movie, “The Edge” with Anthony Hopkins and Alec Baldwin.

When I saw this movie I was battling rejection from years as a severe stutterer.

I was hassled by massive insecurity issues.

The devils of fear, which had tormented me from childhood, still played mayhem with my thoughts.

The first rays of self-esteem were breaking through cobwebs of profound rejection.

I had dwelt must of my life in the house of comparing myself to others and the dungeon of self-criticism.

As this famous dialogue between Alec Baldwin and Anthony Hopkins transpired, God broke through.

Trapped in icy Alaskan tundra after an airplane crash, Hopkins and Baldwin are being stalked by a killer grizzly bear (Bart, the Bear).  Baldwin (Robert) is convinced that he and Hopkins (Charles) will come to a ghastly end in the teeth of this huge creature.

Baldwin paralyzed by dread is angrily challenged by Hopkins and his famous words.

“What one man can do another can do…” . But I tell you what… I’m not gonna die. No, sirree. I’m not gonna die. No, I’m gonna kill the bear. Say it, “I’m gonna kill the bear. I’m gonna kill the bear!” Say it!

I’m gonna kill the bear!!!   I’m gonna kill the bear!!!

At that instant and in this scene, God’s lightning bolt knocked me off  from the horse of fear as His voice boomed into my heart.

It was the beginning of my road to victory.

What Billy Graham can do, you can do.

What Billy Graham can do, you can do. :  Say it again!

What Billy Graham can do, you can do. What Billy Graham can do, you can do.

I’m gonna kill the bear of comparison!” Say it! I’m gonna kill the bear of comparison. Say it again.

What Kathryn Kuhlman can do, you can do.

What Kathryn Kuhlman can do, you can do. :  Say it again!

What Kathryn Kuhlman can do, you can do. What Kathryn Kuhlman can do, I can do.

I’m gonna kill the bear of fear!” Say it! I’m gonna kill the bear of fear. Say it again.

What Smith Wigglesworth can do, you can do.

What Smith Wigglesworth can do, you can do. :  Say it again!

What Smith Wigglesworth can do, you can do.   What Smith Wigglesworth can do, you can do

I’m gonna kill the bear of rejection!” Say it! I’m gonna kill the bear of rejection.  Say it again.

What Charles Finney can do, you can do.

What Charles Finney can do, you can do.    Say it again!

What Charles Finney can do, you can do. What Charles Finney can do, you can do.

I’m gonna kill the bear of pain!” Say it! I’m gonna kill the bear of pain. Say it again.

Go, and kill your bears;  I say to you again…. GO KILL YOUR BEARS!
