'This Is Us' Has Returned For Season 3 And I'm Already Crying

It never disappoints

Binge watching is a skill that many college students have mastered, through their long hours of procrastination, ditching and well-needed stress relief relaxation, but this show is one of the hardest shows I have ever binged. If you haven't heard of this show, you are missing a truly spectacular show.

It is hard for me to describe it with "good" because, to be honest, good is not the right word. It isn't really good, because when I watch it my soul gets ripped apart and then put back together, and not really a good thing. The family aspect of the triplets with their parents is incredibly wholesome and gives you hope (even though it is a television show) that love for family and friends can save you during your lowest points and elate even higher at your highest point.

I am a sucker when it comes to heartwarming or sad things on T.V. so I cry at some point during every single episode. That is why it has been so difficult for me to binge this show, because crying, happy tears or sad tears, is exhausting. However, now that I am caught up, it was all worth it. I don't want to say it is the most fantastic show ever and you should watch it because "This Is Us" is an emotional roller coaster that destroys your walls one episode at a time, so while it is an amazing show you have to prepare yourself.

Season three premiered last week and as always it did not disappoint, but if you have yet to watch the show, I would stop reading if you don't want it to be spoiled. As great an opening as it was, it opened a can of worms that I am anxious about.

1. Toby pouring his anti-depressant medication out...


3. Who is that idiot that showed up at Rebecca's door with flower?!

4. How do we feel about Zoe and Kevin?

These are all points that are already eating at me when it has only been one week! The foreshadow of Toby becoming depressed makes watching him throw out his anti-depressants, that much harder. He is such a loyal and incredible husband, that he is willing to risk going back to a horrible dark place just so his wife might get what she wants most: to have a child. I just CAN NOT.

Looking back to last season, I thought Tess and Randal were going to meet Deja, but now that she seems to be doing fine and they brought Toby into the conversation with that ominous phone call, I have no clue who it is. I am REALLY hoping it isn't Kate, because that would just be awful, through everything that she has already struggled through. But, Toby isn't wearing a wedding ring on the phone call, so... WHAT HAPPENS?

I am so excited to see Jack win Rebecca over whoever this schmuck is that brought her flowers because the one nice thing is that we know they end up together so there doesn't have to be any guessing! Jack will forever be the golden standard for all men from this moment onward, and I think every girl will agree with me. End of discussion.

Personally, I am kind of digging Kevin and Zoe. She seems sweet and cute, and Kevin deserves a break with women. Beth's warning is slightly concerning, but I have a feeling that is just the dramatics of the show, so I am intrigued to see where this relationship fling ends up.

Binge watching has got me this far, and now I have to wait a whole week for each new episode. I am sure this will be easier on my emotions, but not easier on my patience. I am eagerly waiting for the new episodes to uncover all my unanswered questions, and bring me another phenomenal season of "This Is Us".

Is God Reckless?

Exploring the controversy behind the popular worship song "Reckless Love"

Is God Reckless?

First things first I do not agree with people getting so caught up in the specific theology of a song that they forget who they are singing the song to. I normally don't pay attention to negative things that people say about worship music, but the things that people were saying caught my attention. For example, that the song was not biblical and should not be sung in churches. Worship was created to glorify God, and not to argue over what kind of theology the artist used to write the song. I was not made aware of the controversy surrounding the popular song "Reckless Love" by Cory Asbury until about a week ago, but now that I am aware this is what I have concluded.The controversy surrounding the song is how the term reckless is used to describe God's love. This is the statement that Cory Asbury released after many people questioned his theology regarding his lyrics. I think that by trying to clarify what the song was saying he added to the confusion behind the controversy.This is what he had to say,
"Many have asked me for clarity on the phrase, "reckless love". Many have wondered why I'd use a "negative" word to describe God. I've taken some time to write out my thoughts here. I hope it brings answers to your questions. But more than that, I hope it brings you into an encounter with the wildness of His love.When I use the phrase, "the reckless love of God", I'm not saying that God Himself is reckless. I am, however, saying that the way He loves, is in many regards, quite so. What I mean is this: He is utterly unconcerned with the consequences of His actions with regards to His own safety, comfort, and well-being. His love isn't crafty or slick. It's not cunning or shrewd. In fact, all things considered, it's quite childlike, and might I even suggest, sometimes downright ridiculous. His love bankrupted heaven for you. His love doesn't consider Himself first. His love isn't selfish or self-serving. He doesn't wonder what He'll gain or lose by putting Himself out there. He simply gives Himself away on the off-chance that one of us might look back at Him and offer ourselves in return.His love leaves the ninety-nine to find the one every time."
Some people are arguing that song is biblical because it makes reference to the scripture from Matthew 28:12-14 and Luke 15. Both of these scriptures talk about the parable of the lost sheep and the shepherd. The shepherd symbolizes God and the lost sheep are people that do not have a relationship with God. On the other hand some people are arguing that using the term reckless, referring to God's character is heretical and not biblical. I found two articles that discuss the controversy about the song.The first article is called, "Reckless Love" By Cory Asbury - "Song Meaning, Review, and Worship Leading Tips." The writer of the article, Jake Gosselin argues that people are "Making a mountain out of a molehill" and that the argument is foolish. The second article, "God's Love is not Reckless, Contrary to What You Might Sing" by author Andrew Gabriel argues that using the term reckless is irresponsible and that you cannot separate Gods character traits from God himself. For example, saying that God's love is reckless could also be argued that God himself is reckless. Reckless is typically not a word that someone would use to describe God and his love for us. The term reckless is defined as (of a person or their actions) without thinking or caring about the consequences of an action. However, Cory Asbury is not talking about a person, he is talking about God's passionate and relentless pursuit of the lost. While I would not have chosen the word reckless, I understand what he was trying to communicate through the song. Down below I have linked two articles that might be helpful if you are interested in reading more about the controversy.

What If The U.N. Actually United The Nations?

This is me taking a break from being cynical and imagining how the world could be one day.
