As I travel around the country & sing at all different types of churches in different areas, something has become more & more clear to me over the past few years, many churches have a problem! Not all churches, but many churches have a major problem today & the problem is not financial or a problem with their programs & activities, the problem is a lot of churches don't have Jesus there anymore. The people in them merely come because it's a routine of what they do on Sunday but they have totally lost sight of what God's love & the Gospel message is all about. I know there is no such thing as the "Perfect church" 

Reflecting today on the amazing love that God had for us, in that He sent His only son to suffer & die a cruel & painful death so that we might live. No matter how many movies we watch or how many times we read the story I'm sure our minds will never quite fathom what Jesus truly went through on that Good Friday over 2,000 years ago. Wanted to share these lyrics with you to a song I wrote with a few other writers several years ago that talks about that event that happened so long ago, yet still changes lives today. This song is called "What Stained The Cross" I hope it will speak to your heart today.

I’ve been thinking a lot about dreams lately. Recently I watched a movie called “Won’t Back Down” it was a really inspirational movie that dealt with having a dream & the many obstacles we encounter along the way. I watched as these 2 ladies tried so hard to achieve the dream they had set out to reach only to have many set backs & what looked like impossible situations that stood between them & their dream. In the beginning they were so excited, enthusiastic & positive but you could watch as the journey got harder & harder how their excitement turned into frustration & sometimes even discouragement. Sounded like a familiar story to me & probably to many of you too that have set out to reach the dream that is living in your heart.

I often get a lot of emails from people who feel unaccepted & feel like they are rejected due to not being "good enough" by other people's standards. Boy can I ever relate to that! I have struggled with it my whole life, feeling inadequate or like I'm not "good enough" at something, but there comes a point where we have to realize that God made us exactly who He wanted us to be. He made us look the way we do, have the abilities, dreams & talents He has given each one of us because He has a great plan for each of our lives. God didn't make you or me like everyone else because He wanted us to be who WE are, not everyone else. So I wrote this song for my new album called "Good Enough" & I wanted to share the lyrics with you since I get so many people sending me messages that are struggling with feeling like they're not "whatever" people want them to be or they feel like they should be, so check out these lyrics & hit me back with a comment & let me know what these words speak to you & what this song means to you thanks!

 

Can you imagine how Peter must have felt as he stood on the boat looking out into the sea? Off in the distance he sees Jesus telling him to come out to where He is, but between him & Jesus he sees darkness, the storm & the waves beating against the boat. He knew Jesus was telling him to take a step of faith out into the water, but can you imagine the fear that gripped his heart looking at everything else going on around him? I’ve never walked on water before but I would have to think that would have been kind of a scary thing to do in his situation, but the cool thing was, he did it! Sure he sank for a minute & Jesus had to pull him out of the water, but regardless Peter still walked on the water!
Maybe you’ve felt like that in your life before too. Here you are standing at the edge of your decision & Jesus is saying, “take a step of faith this way.” You can see Jesus standing on the other side of your decision, but you can also see all the things standing between you & Him, that are trying to pull you under. Boy do I know how that feels! Been there many times, but the good news is if we will take that step of faith to “walk out on the water” so to speak, He is going to be right there to catch us is we fall!
I’ve been talking about my decision to do something new with my music & ministry & I can remember last year being at that point where God was calling me to step out into new waters & walk in faith & I was so unsure & so afraid thinking things like, “What will other people think? Others will not like this idea“, or “How will I afford to do this?” But I realized God wasn’t asking me to have it all figured out, He just wanted me to say Yes & take that first step of faith out into the water. Wouldn’t you know it as soon as I made the decision to walk out into new waters I lost my voice for a year, it was not fun, but the good news is I’m doing pretty well now & things are beginning to finally move forward & I am excited!
There is a song that God has been using over the past few weeks to really encourage & inspire me called “Walk On The Water” by my favorite Christian artist named Britt Nicole. I wanted to share the lyrics with you this week hoping they would inspire & encourage you as much as they have me. Check them out & don’t ever be afraid to walk on the water, & do something great for God!
“Walk On The Water” by Britt Nicole
You look around
It's staring back at you
Another wave of doubt
Will it pull you under
You wonder
What if I'm overtaken
What if I never make it
What if no one's there?
Will you hear my prayer?
When you take that first step
Into the unknown
You know that he won't let you go
Chorus:
So what are you waiting for?
What do you have to lose?
Your insecurities try to alter you
You know you're made for more
So don't be afraid to move
Your faith is all
It takes and you can
Walk on the water too
Verse 2:
So get out
And let
Your fear fall to the ground
No time to waste
Don't wait
Don't you turn around and miss out
Everything you were made for
I know you're not sure
So you play it safe
Try to run away
If you take that first step
Into the unknown
He won't let you go
(chorus)
Bridge:
(step out)
Even when its storming
(step out)
Even when you're broken
(step out)
Even when your heart is telling you telling you to give up
(step out)
When your hope is stolen
(step out)
You can't see where you're going
You don't have to be afraid
So what are you waiting,
What are you waiting for?
So what are you waiting for?
What do you have to lose?
Your insecurities try to alter you
You know you're made for more
So don't be afraid to move
Your faith is all
It takes and you can
Walk on the water...
Walk on the water too 
PLease feel free to leave comments & feedback I love to hear from you all.

Have you ever prayed for God to open a door for you, but for some reason or another the opportunity didn’t work out & the door didn’t open? In those times sometimes we feel disappointed & wonder why it didn’t work out & it can be easy to get discouraged. But did it ever occur to you that the very same God who opens doors is the same God who closes them?
I’m the kind of person who doesn’t like to wait for things, if I am pursuing something in my life I am ready for it to happen right then & there. I take off at one hundred miles an hour in the direction I am headed, praying for & looking for doors of opportunity to open in my life. Things seem fine as long as doors are opening, I’m feeling like life is good, but then I hit that door that slams in my face & my first thought many times is, “Why did this happen? Why didn’t God open this door?” Maybe you too have felt this way when something didn’t work out in your life. But I am learning more & more that the same God who opens doors in our life is the same God who closes them.
Think about it, God has a perfect plan for our life, we can’t see what lies ahead but God can. God has a destination He is trying to get each one of us to, & only He knows how to get us there. If God answered every prayer & opened every door we prayed for, it’s hard to tell where we would end up. Life is a journey of faith, & if we are putting our Faith in God that means trusting that He is guiding our steps in the right direction, opening the right doors & closing the wrong ones. I look back at a lot of things that happened in my life over the past 6 or 7 years & at the time many of them seemed like huge disappointments when things fell through & didn’t work out, but now I see that God had a plan all along & He had something much bigger in store for more life. Many times God shuts doors in our life because He doesn’t want us to settle for something less that what His plan for our life is. Remember this our dreams are not near as big as the plans God has for us.
 
I thank God for every door He has closed in my life because I know that He was just protecting me & keeping me from going in the wrong direction, I know God has big plans for my life, & I know He is going to guide each one of us through the doors He wants us to walk through. If something doesn’t workout in your life don’t get upset, just trust that God has you in the palm of His hand & that He was the one who closed the door because He has something much better in store for you down the road. So let’s always be thankful for every open door in our life, but let’s also learn to thank God for the doors He closes in our lives too. Better things are in store just down the road, keep your head up!

In those times sometimes we feel disappointed & wonder why it didn’t work out & it can be easy to get discouraged.

Have you ever heard someone say the phrase, “I wonder what might have happened if….?” I consider myself to be a pretty brave person, I don’t have too many fears in this life, but one fear I do have, maybe even my greatest fear, is reaching the end of my life & having to ask the question “What might have happened?” I think that would be the worst thing, to look back over my life & know that I didn’t fulfill my purpose that God had planned for me.
This is something I often struggle with & I know many other people that struggle with as well, they live with that big “what if?” question hanging over their head. A few years ago I felt God calling me into a different direction in my music & ministry, last year I made the big decision to follow my heart & tackle this new direction. As soon as I made that decision I’ve had one set back after another in my journey to reaching this vision God put in my heart. Isn’t that usually how it is? We set out on the journey full of passion & fire & then as each obstacle comes & each disappointment, rejection & failure hit us the fire seems to get quenched a little more & the dream seems smaller & farther out of reach. Finally we let the dream die & then years later we look back & say “I wonder what might have happened if?”
I am determined that WILL NOT happen in my life! God has given each of us a dream, a vision, a calling of what He wants us to do, & I am challenging you to not let the failures & setbacks in your life keep you from fulfilling your destiny. Let’s ignite the fire in our hearts again & say I may have gotten knocked down, but I didn’t get knocked out! I’m gonna get back up in Jesus name & move forward. My circumstances will not dictate what happens in my life, Almighty God will have the final say so over my dream.
Don’t just go through life with an attitude of accepting what comes to you, because if you do I can guarantee when you look back at your life you will ask that awful question, “what would have happened?” You’ve got to set your sights on your dream & tell your heart to believe again & determine that you will reach your destiny. I thank God that I see a breakthrough coming in my life, I’m not satisfied with just doing a little I want to be a world changer for the Lord, because I can! So let’s get back up dust ourselves off & get back in the race to reaching our goals, dreams & purpose that God has for our lives, so that when we reach the end we can say I have fought the good fight & I have finished my race, & not have to say “I wonder what would have happened if….?”

A few weeks ago I went & saw the Dr. Seuss movie The Lorax. It was a really great movie with an awesome message in it. There was one part of the movie that was quoted from the classic book that really spoke volumes to me personally, the Lorax said this, “Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot, Nothing is going to get better. It's not.” He was saying this in regards to saving the environment & the chopping down of trees, but I think there is such a powerful message in this statement, that Dr. Seuss was trying to get in our hearts.

Well I want to say a big thank you to everyone who participated in this year's V-Day Contest it was a huge success! But there can only be one winner & this year our winners are Chris & Stephanie Halcomb! Congrats to you both! We picked their story because it really showed what it means to stick together through thick & thin & I thought that was great. Their song will be posted on here next week so be sure to check back to hear the song & watch the video, but in the mean time here is their story so that you can familiarize yourself with their story.

Recently I attended a World Vision conference in Nashville, it was awesome! The theme of the event was “Use Your Voice, Do Good.” Which basically talked about how we should use our talents, skills, platform & resources to make an impact in our world for the good. God has blessed everyone of us with different abilities & resources to help others, what are we doing with them? A man said something that really stuck with me, he said people often ask him, “If God was such a loving God, then why does He let all these bad things happen to people & let little children starve & die around the world?” His answer was this, “God doesn’t let these things happen, we do.”

Well I can't believe that another year has come and gone. 2011 was a great year in many ways but was also hard in some ways due to a lot of sickness and voice problems. I experienced many great victories in 2011 and also experienced some losses as well. Looking back over the past year there's one thing that is certain and that is that I am truly blessed. I am so thankful for what God does in my life every day and how He proves Himself faithful time and time again no matter what I go through.

There were very many memorable things that happened in 2011,  many great concerts, new songs written, time with family, lots of great stuff

Well I can’t believe it Christmas will be here in only a few days, woo hoo! I’m so excited I am a huge Christmas fan, I love everything about Christmas the lights, the music, the presents, but most of all I love what it REALLY is, the celebration of Jesus coming to this Earth to bring us hope! The Grinch is great & Santa is pretty cool but let’s face it Jesus is the real hero of Christmas & despite what modern day society may say, Jesus is still the reason for Christmas!

This is one of my favorite passages of scripture in the Bible, Luke 2:10-11 "And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people.
For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord." Wow talk about great news!

Well it’s finally here, it’s Christmas time! Yay! I love Christmas it’s my favorite time of the year, I love everything about it, The Grinch, Christmas candy, the music, the Christmas cartoons & movies, doing special events with my family & all that come with this great time of year. Many say it’s “the most wonderful time of the year” there’s even a song about that, & though that is true for many, for some it’s also the hardest time of the year.

A few years ago I read some statistics that really shocked me, it said that suicide rates are higher between Thanksgiving & New Years than any other time of the year. I was blown away

This is always one of my favorite times of the year, I’m a huge Thanksgiving fan! I love everything about the holidays & this special day really kind of kicks it all off for me, plus I’m a big fan of food & because Thanksgiving gives us the reason to eat a lot of food that makes me happy too. As I think about all of what we have kind of come to know Thanksgiving to be about, you know the football games & Black Friday sales, I love all that stuff too, but I just want to stop & thank God for all the blessings in my life.

I’m kind of one of those people who tends to always focus on what’s ahead, maybe at times I

As I’m out on the road singing I have many people who ask for prayer & share their story with me about what’s going on in their life, or people will send me an email for the same reason. One thing I’ve noticed over the last few years is that people are really going through some hard times today. Sometimes it’s easy to get discouraged when we go through these times, trust me I know, I’ve been there many times myself. I think it’s because so many times our focus is on the problem that we’re facing instead of being on the one who solves our problems. I’ve found when we get our focus on how big God is, our problems start looking a lot smaller in comparison to that God that created this whole universe that is more than able to do far above anything that we could ever ask!

A few days ago I received the news that a young man, only 18 years old that I knew named Chris, died tragically in a car accident. I was shocked to find out the news about Chris, so young, so unexpected. As I have gotten to talk to some of those closest to Chris over the last few days I have realized more & more what an amazing person & example of Christ that Chris was. When I attended the layout I was blown away by the amount of people who came to remember Chris, probably the biggest turnout I have ever seen at a funeral home, & it showed what an impact he made on the lives of the people who knew him

If you ever ask someone the question “Why don’t you attend church?” You’ll get many different answers, but 2 of the biggest ones I get are, “I don’t want to go to church with a bunch of hypocrites.” The other big one is “I went to church before & I didn’t feel welcome.” I often analyze these types of things & as we travel to many different churches of all types of denominations, I’ve started thinking maybe we’ve become our own worst enemy in the church world as we know it

 

So I’m super excited to be working on a new album of all original songs again! This is the first time I have written any songs for three and a half years so it feels really good to get the ink flowing from the pen again. Over the last few years I’ve really been studying people & their struggles so that I could write songs that would be real to people where they are in their everyday life. I see a lot of people who deal with personal struggle & failure & wrote this song about it called “Save Me From Myself” from the perspective of how some people feel that I have talked to or read things they have posted, hope the words speak to you, be sure to comment below & let me know what you think, thanks

Have you ever read a book & as you’re reading it, it starts taking twists & turns, & you think to yourself, “this doesn’t seem to be making any sense. Where is this story going?” I think sometimes our lives can be that way too. Our lives many times are like a story unfolding a chapter at a time. Sometimes there are good times, sometimes there are bad times, & sometimes you fall into one of those chapters in your life where you say, “This doesn’t make any sense, where is this headed?”

The Bible tells us all of our days have been written in God’s book. He’s already recorded every part of your life from the beginning to the end

Sometimes in this busy society we live in today it’s easy to lose perspective on what life is really all about. I know myself, I have so often got caught up in the hustle & bustle of life that sometimes God has to stop me & refocus my mind on the truly important things in life. Seems like more & more the world we live in gets crazier all the time & it’s easy to try so hard to find the things the make us happy we forget where true happiness comes from

Sometimes we go through things in life that just don’t seem fair, you know what I mean? I often hear people say things like, “Why did God let this happen to me? I just don’t understand.” I know that life isn’t always fair, but I know that God is always fair. The Bible tells us in Romans 8:28, that God causes all things to work together for our good. The key word to look at is together.

We can’t isolate parts of our life & say this is not good or that’s not good, sure parts of our life aren’t always good. In itself certain things that happen in our lives aren’t good, but remember God sees the bigger picture for our life

We often talk about what some of the major “killers” are in today’s society, things like heart disease or cancer, but over the past couple of years I’m seeing something that is becoming catastrophic to our world today & it’s suicide. I believe has become more of a problem than most people even realize, it’s not just the down & out anymore that struggle with it, it’s also the successful business person, the person with the perfect family, the teen who appears to have everything they could ask for in their future, these people have all become targets of spirit of suicide.

Doing what I do, traveling across the country singing & ministering, I have a lot of people who will come up to me after a concert or send me an email telling me their stories & struggles. Two of the biggest problems I see people dealing with today are depression & suicide

Really excited to let you all know we have began working on the new album! Yipee! We are currently in the studio recording all new stuff which is going to be different than anything I've ever released before. My ministry is getting ready to change direction in the way that we try to reach people, as well as partnering with some orginizations which will allow us to reach out to some hurting people that I feel have been overlooked & are in need of much help. This new music & ministry direction I believe will be the vehicle to allow us to do what God has been putting on my heart to do for years now

Have you ever heard someone say something like this, “One day I’ll be happy when, I get a better job” or “I meet the right person” or “when I have more money”, fill in the blank with whatever, you’ve heard these kind of things before I’m sure. It seems that as people we sometimes have a tendency to always be living for the “One Day.” I believe we all should look forward to the future & plan for great things ahead, but we have to learn to be happy where we are & live for the now.

I’d like to talk to you about breaking away from the “one day” mentality & switching your way of thinking to the “now” point of view.

Well as many of you may or may not know about 3 months ago I lost my voice & went through a terrible time of throat & vocal problems, it was rough. At the time I lost my voice I had just went into the studio to work on some new music & had to come to a sudden hault. Well finally my voice is completely healed & back to normal, Thank You Lord! So next week I will head back into the studio & get back to writing & recording new music that will be out later this year. Be sure to check back as there is some major exciting changes coming to my music & ministry, I'm really, really excited about the direction God is leading me in & believe we will be able to reach more people with the Gospel than ever before. After not being able to sing for such a long time I have learned to never take my voice for granted again!

Last week I had the privilege of doing the music at a VBS type of event called Sportscamp for about 250 kids, it was a blast! But as I have been doing more events with kids I’m starting to notice some things from the kids that we could learn from as adults. It makes me wonder what is it that changes in us & when does it occur in our lives that takes us from being one way as children to a completely different way when we’re older? Sure there are some things that need to change in us from kids to adults, but I think there are some things that maybe shouldn’t change but unfortunately do.

In Matthew 18:4 Jesus said this, “So anyone who becomes as humble as this little child is the greatest in the Kingdom of Heaven.” I’m seeing more & more what Jesus meant.

Well this week I’d like to talk about what could be a pretty touchy subject with a lot of people, & that is what exactly is “Christian” music? We all probably have our own idea of what that is when we hear the term, or maybe what it isn’t too. I feel that as Christians we are so divided on this topic, which is really a shame because something that should unite us as believers is more often what separates us. So being that what I do for a living is “Christian” music lets take a deep look into this, shall we?

I often share the story to my “Half & Half” album, that the reason I created it was because so many pastors tell us that their church is split on the music they like, half like the old songs, the other half like the new ones & most of the time there is no meeting in the middle between the two.

Well it’s been a few weeks since I’ve gotten to blog, sorry for the missed weeks. One of the main reasons I missed a few weeks is that I was on vacation, woo hoo! Had a great time relaxing & being with family, it was a much needed time of rest.

Being on vacation got me to thinking about one of my all time favorite movies called “What About Bob?” This movie is hilarious, it’s about a multiphobic psychiatric patient who follows his successful psychiatrist Dr. Leo Marvin on vacation. One of the main parts of the movie is that his psychiatrist writes Bob a prescription to “take a vacation from his problems.” Even though this is a funny movie, there’s really a lot of good sense in that idea.

If you’re at all like me, life can get really stressful, even tiresome at times

Well I think the cold weather is pretty much behind us. Finally! I am not a big fan of winter time at all, but I’m a huge fan of summer time. I love everything about summer, swimming, going to theme parks, having grill outs & just being outside, I love it! There seems like there’s a time every year somewhere between February & March where it starts feeling like winter time is never going to end, but every year it does.

Maybe you’ve had seasons like that in your life. You know the one that just doesn’t seem like it’s ever going to end.

One thing that becomes more evident to me everyday in my own life, as well as through the lives of other people I talk to, is the fact that we live in a world that can be very hard & stressful place to be in at times. It is no secret to anyone that at times life can just really get tough. Doing what I do I often have people send me emails or come up after a concert & share their story with me about what they are going through in their life, & the bottom line is people today are going through some difficult times.

I’ve love to sit here & tell you that being a Christian means we’ll never have problems, but that’s not reality. However there is a great reality though & it is this, we have a loving God who goes through these difficult times with us,

Springtime is in the air, I love this time of year for so many reasons! I love the warm weather, seeing the trees & plants bloom, & just being outside feels great after a long cold winter. I also love this time of year because we celebrate our Risen Savior & King. As we come upon Easter & Good Friday in the next few days I’d like to just remind you to never forget.

Never forget what? You might ask.

Last week I went & saw an amazing movie called “Soul Surfer” which I would highly recommend seeing! This movie was about a girl who found herself facing a very tough situation, she is a surfer who’s trying to go pro, but in the midst of her biggest opportunity she loses her arm & faces a terrible set back. I realized as I watched this movie, & the girl struggled with her misfortune, she had 2 choices she could make,

Hey, Jimmy Dooley Here!

Do you ever wonder why there are so many empty churches today? Or maybe even why when people hear about Christianity they seem so turned off by it? I do, I think about these things all the time. Why is it you can go by a school play or bingo event & see the parking overflowing & then go by a church & see 10 cars?

As I have studied this very much over the last few years, I’m starting to understand it & see more clearly why this is. Isn’t it true that people want to be apart of something exciting, welcoming, rewarding & feeling that they are loved & accepted while they are there? I think so,

Hey, Jimmy Dooley Here.

Well I have officially started working on a new project! I am excited as this is the first time I have worked on an album with all original songs I’m writing in 3 years. This CD will be completely different than anything I’ve done before, which is going to be cool because I think it will allow me to reach people we’ve never bee able to reach before.

I’m realizing that a lot of times in our lives good things or bad things don’t just happen by circumstance, they happen because they are a direct result of what we believe will happen & what we’re speaking into our life whether...

Well hope you all are doing well & staying warm in this frigid weather. A big thanks to all who participated in the 1st ever V-Day contest, it was a huge success, really enjoyed everyone's stories. The winner was sent to me by April Biddle, it was a touching story about her parents & how they stayed together in spite ofsome tough times, here is the story she sent to me so you can know that backgorund before you hear the song in a few weeks.
