Reality Shows

Like the stone feature on either side of the TV. Something like this for our little wall in the entryway?:

I recently wrote down these words from a sermon preached from my beloved pastor who said, “we can’t fake getting into heaven.”   It struck a chord with me and got me thinking of reality shows  and celebrities which we sometimes define as being fake.  If we choose to admit it, we can be honest and say most of us have at least one reality show we like to watch or will tolerate being on  TV.   I don’t watch a lot of TV but I have been drawn into the lives of other people by some reality shows.  Whether I was flipping through the channels or just waking up to find  a show already on, something or someone, a design, or some exotic place, or cool location captured my interest and I wanted to see more.  I was drawn in to someone else’s life. I ‘ve watched shows like The Voice, Project Runway, Bring It and more recently the Rap Game.   People say you can have your own reality show of your life and the truth is most of us already do.  Our everyday lives are real.  We are broadcasting live shows daily.  We have temporary and  sometimes permanent drama, fears and tears, laughter and love, joy and pain. We also have family and friends,  healthy and unhealthy competitions,  success and failures.    This is my reality, it’s a real life of trying to live on pitch and stay in tune with God through the everyday challenges of balancing work life, church life, healthy eating, fostering relationships, keeping my home organized, spending time with family and friends,  growing spiritually while writing and reading books.  I try to take care of business and stay on track.  I have good and bad days. I hope my reality shows other people we can go through life in every season living on pitch. It’s not going to be a perfect life or an easy road but  we can make it by staying connected to God who give us strength each day. There will be days of  drama, fears and tears, joy, pain, laughter and love. God already knows and He cares about our everyday life because  we matter to Him.

How are you living on pitch? What are your favorite reality shows?

Let me hear from you!

    No favorite but I enjoy one or two reality shows that make me laugh (like “Raising Whitley”). They help me to escape my own reality for a moment, but I have to get back to my life in order to stay on pitch.

    Hi Lori, That was highly inspirational and thought provoking. It’s amazing how everyone who hear the same message may get a different message for their life. I thank God that message brought out of you something so powerful to get one thinking about their own reality. Certainly, we can easily be drawn in by the fake reality shows because of the gliz, glamour drama, and the like, but like you we must strive to stay on pitch in our own reality. To me, that is…making sure I stay on pitch with the Lord no matter what is going on in my life. Dear Lord, help us all to live in the reality You have assigned for us. Thanks again, Lori, they was great! Hertistine On Feb 22, 2016 8:45 AM, “Living On Pitch” wrote:
