In a world where body positivity is all the rage and encouraged for so many, there’s one group of people (at least that I can think of) that are still getting flack for their body uniqueness. Men with small penis’. As someone with a small penis, I experienced countless amounts of shame and bullying in school for something I couldn’t control. I remember thinking “What the heck, i didn’t ask for this”. I even remember rushing while in the changing room and showers so that i wasn’t seen. I was taught through life that I should feel shame for the way I looked. As believers in christ, we are setting a new standard for life, but first we have to recognize where theres some lies seeping into our born again lifestyles. Destructive lies like “masculinity solely hinges upon what is hanging between your legs and how big it is”. I’m sorry if I’m bursting your bubble but that’s simply not true. You and the men around you were formed in the womb by a potter who makes no mistakes. I think its time we begin embracing our bodies as perfect. Big or small, your penis is great and you have nothing to worry about! Like i said, we are to be a people setting new standard. one where celebration and affirmation triumph over comparison and competition. I encourage you to affirm the men around you. Beyond their penis size, affirm them. Their masculinity, Their character, Their handsomeness, their humor, their uniqueness, etc… We are paving for a change in our society and for the men after us to feel validated in themselves no matter what they look like. will you join us in this call?

PC: @silvan.shlegel What you think about you bring about. Im sure, somewhere along the line, you’ve heard this quote before. It’s an idea that’s really big in new age cultures and is probably repeated in all the self help books you can imagine. Christians usually throw away anything to do with other currents of thought, but they’re missing out on a lot of insights into the kingdom. See, new age, and all the other schools of thought thrive off of key ideas that are totally kingdom based; they’re just using counterfeits. The phrase: “what you think about, you bring about.” Is literally biblical. Proverbs 4:23 “Above all, guard the affections of your heart, for they affect all that you are.” Listen, if you’re constantly body bashing yourself every time you step in front of a mirror, your body is probably going to have side effects. Have you ever just met someone for the first time, or not even met, but merely seen and all you want to do is punch them in the face? It’s insane for you to just not like someone without even knowing them right? Well, it’s not actually. The reason you don’t like them is probably because they don’t like themselves. Your outside, reflects your inside. Take two different couples, one is positive and filled with dreams, the other comes from a bad background and carries that baggage like a victim; they both make the same amount of money. One of those couples is always overdrawing on their accounts; they’re always in debt; they never have enough; they’re always looking for deals; and they jump at anything that is free. The other couple has a nice house and you get the picture. Why? They make the same amount of money, but it’s never been about the money. Warren buffet was a rich man before he ever made a million and their are plenty of millionaires who are still scavenging orphans. It’s a mindset thing; it’s a sonship thing; it’s a Jesus thing.

PC: @theolater Prov. 4:23 “Above all, guard the affections of your heart, for they affect all that you are.” “Affections,” is one of those words where 99% of the time, it’s used with a positive connotation. What if “affections” could also be your negative emotions? Guard the emotions of your heart; Guard where you spend your time, energy and passion. Todd White says this: “We have to be determined to never allow the sins against us, to produce sin within us.” This is so challenging. Coming from my specific circles, I’m usually in the middle of hard, gospel truth, and die hard, emotional health. So when an issue arises with someone who has betrayed me or criticized me, I’m either looking to live with an unoffendable heart, or set up some sort of boundaries. It’s usually the first; I have a thing about cop-outs, and I try to be as honest with myself as I can, and often times, boundaries are big cop-outs in the church. Sometimes people have said yes so much in their lives, that when they finally get permission to say no, they run with it and end up only saying no. We all have complications in life, setbacks and trials, but it’s what we do with those situations that set us apart.

PC: @maik_lipp God shaped Hole⠀

When I was a kid, I believed in God, but I definitely wasn’t a christian. My mind was always off in some other world, whether it was sports or girls, the truth is the truth, I couldn’t have cared less about God. Since my parents were pastors I was at every single Sunday and Wednesday service. One thing I recently remembered, was my Dad holding alter calls. I was usually in children’s church, so I wasn’t there for it’s start, but sometimes we’d be let out early before the main service was completed. When these types of moments would be happening they were very distinct. I would creep up to the sanctuary door, look inside to see the line of people seeking prayer. I would quietly sneak in and sit on the back pew watching people literally get slain by the power of God. There was no over-exaggeration, the room was almost silent and my Dad would barely touch them. He always wanted it to be Holy Spirit who knocked ‘em out. I can recall on multiple occasions, my slipping in to a service like this, jut to watch God move. Now, at the time, I had no idea why I was there. I was just attracted to what was happening in the room. Looking back on it, I can see how much I loved God, even when I didn’t know it. There was always something inside me who wanted to see the real God. The one people talk about, but rarely seen in action. I believe in every human, there’s an innate desire to know God. You want to watch Him move. You want to watch Him heal. There’s a god shaped hole, in the middle of your heart.

PC: @theolater Define, Church.⠀

I grew up as a pastor’s kid of a small charismatic church in a city called Elkhart. There were good times and there were bad times, as there are with anything. One thing I distinctly became accustomed to, was the idea of people coming and going. Being a small church, you felt their absence a little more than a 1,000 member facility would. I can’t recall any of the specifics for their leaving but one main theme was evident; they disagreed with something my Dad did, or said from the pulpit, so that was it; they were off to the next place. Growing up in that kind of environment, where people’s decision to stay or leave hung on my Father’s right or wrong attitude, was pretty scaring. So when people left the church, They weren’t just leaving a building, they were leaving me. They were leaving my family. ⠀
I know, don’t be an orphan bro lol but that’s how my mind unconsciously received their actions and it’s valid. Listen, the church was always meant to be a family, where people feel safe and braver than their usual. The church isn’t Burger King; it’s not have it your way, and if someone messes up your order, you take the meal back and demand a refund. You don’t get to spread rumors and deface someone’s reputation because you’ve come across something that challenges your personal theology. We as the church are supposed to pick our people and stick with them. I have huge disagreements with my younger brother, but that doesn’t mean I go find a new family, it’s not an option. Gather around people; don’t gather around ideas.
