A Parable of Forgiveness: Brewing and Drinking Acid and Steeping in Resentment Every Day Destroys Us and our Relationship with Jesus Christ by Brian Cimins

Forgiveness-Quote-Parable-Drink-Acid-or-Grace-From-Jesus“For me, lack of forgiveness, anger and resentment were my greatest addictions. It was like brewing and drinking a cup of acid every day. I was addicted to the pain and my mind constantly reminded me I was thirsty for it every angst filled day. The enemy, the Devil who deceives the whole world, even appears as an angel of light and whispers,
“Remember what he or she did to you?” or “remember all those who stole money or ideas from you?” or “remember those who let you down and hurt you? Drink the acid.” The acid started destroying me, figuratively speaking, it wore away my lips, my tongue, my throat, it destroyed my stomach and sweat out my pores burning my skin. Lack of forgiveness was my TRUE addiction and when I physically, emotionally and spiritually destroyed myself with lack of forgiveness and I could no longer drink the painful acid, then anger, resentment, sadness and revenge set in, new BROAD paths to future destruction. I would, figuratively speaking, verbally throw acid on those who harmed me or closest to me, every time I suffered or was accused of the past. Father God, brothers and sisters, beloved ones, please forgive my transgressions, my sins of the past. I was blind and now I see. Jesus showed me how much He loved me. He called my name and I learned who He was and He revealed to me how He forgave the ones who killed Him while hanging on the cross said, “Forgive them Father, for they know not what they do”. How could I not forgive others with all He did for us? Jesus is the only one who can truly heal our broken hearts and souls, He taught us ultimate forgiveness and give us eternal life with Him. We are saved by grace through faith alone in Jesus Christ…”He restores my soul”. Please put down the cup of acid, remember He forgave ALL on the Cross, even while we were still sinners giving us eternal life to those who simply believed in Him. Please put down your cup, “go and sin no more”, don’t brew more anger, don’t steep resentment tea, remember what He did for us and forgive someone today, even wretched sinners, just like you and just like me.” – Brian J. Cimins of http://YourStrategyCoach.com

I must admit that I am some obscure Author of too many Books including the sequel to “More Was Never Enough” (154,000,000 views and growing on YouTube) but too ashamed or uncomfortable about their content to release them in the Past.

Thank you for bringing me “into the cave” Seth Haines (Author of ‘Coming Clean’) and Mark McVeigh for asking the right question to me to break me out of the shell I’d been in so long. Sometimes, we must admit the divine appointments as the miracles unfold and express the gratitude overflowing from the result of those blessings.

Thank you to my mentors Pastor Andrew Rappaport (the one who brought me to Jesus), Frank Mullis, Dave Gustavson, Ted Voltmer, the brave men of women of ‘More Than Conquerors’, all the amazing people at The Chapel who help others out of the kindness of their hearts, all of those who volunteer to serve others in time of need, thank you to all my brothers and sisters in Christ, thank you and blessings to those who’ve hurt me and a special thanks to my Pastor of Care, Pastor Mike Bethune who’s strength perfected by weakness has been personified before me to be a guiding example.  “Start walking”, he said, “Walk by faith and not by sight”, He said.  Here I am…God Bless you always and forever in your walk with Him or back to Him.

If you do not know Jesus…please let me introduce you to Him:

About the Author

Charles Allen, a well-known United Methodist minister, writer, and broadcaster, signs copies of his book (1961). Allen served as pastor of Grace Methodist Church in Atlanta from 1948 to 1960 and broadcast his sermons on both radio and television.Dr. Charles L. Allen (1913-2005) was the much-loved author of many books, including the bestselling God’s Psychiatry.

Charles Allen was a prominent United Methodist minister who served as pastor of Grace Methodist Church in Atlanta from 1948 to 1960 and as pastor of First United Methodist Church in Houston, Texas, from 1960 to 1983. His columns in the Atlanta Journal and Constitution and the Houston Chronicle, his radio and television ministry, and his numerous books brought him national recognition.
Dr. Charles Livingstone Allen was born in Newborn in 1913, the sixth of eight children, to Lulu Franklin and John Robert Allen. Brought up in a devout Methodist home, he followed his father into the ministry and was educated at Young Harris College (1930-32), Wofford College in Spartanburg, South Carolina (1932-34), and Candler School of Theology at Emory University in Atlanta (1933-37). Admitted on a trial basis to the North Georgia Conference in 1933, he was ordained a deacon in 1935 and an elder in 1937. From 1933 to 1948 he served appointments in Douglasville and Thomson, among others. Leila Jane Haynes of Clermont became his wife in 1934. They had three children: Charles, Franklin, and Mary Jane.

The hallmark of Allen’s ministry was “pastoral preaching” in a lucid and transparent style. In 1947 he founded Pulpit Preaching, a homiletical journal. It merged with Pulpit Digest in 1972 to form The New Pulpit Digest (renamed Pulpit Digest in 1978). Allen remained a contributor until 1989. His items, which began in Georgia’s Wesleyan Christian Advocate in 1947, were a prelude to the column he wrote for the Atlanta Journal, beginning in 1949, and for the Atlanta Constitution, beginning in 1952.

Dr. Allen wrote Roads to Radiant Living (1951), his first book, was followed by God’s Psychiatry (1953), which became a best-seller (nearly 2 million copies sold worldwide). The Touch of the Master’s Hand (1956), All Things Are Possible through Prayer (1958), The Miracle of Love (1972), and Meet the Methodists (1986) are other examples of his writings. By 1995 Allen had written or edited more than fifty books, which have sold well over 8 million copies.

Dr. Allen passed away in Houston on August 30, 2005, but his legacy of teachings will live on and guide many suffering souls to Jesus Christ for the healing they seek for many decades to come.

FightExpo Highlight Video World’s First Charity Based MMA, Grappling and Extreme Sports Expo by Brian Cimins – Video by Living Waters and Way Of the Master, Eddie Roman

{HIGHLIGHT VIDEO} Before UFC created #FanExpo, we developed a charity-based event called #FightExpo featuring Grapplers Quest, Amateur Pankration, Pro and Amateur No-Gi and BJJ, #MotoCross, #BMX, and the amazing Make-A-Wish International program we coined called #MeetAFighter – one of the world’s best videographers Eddie Roman of Living Waters / The Way of the Master created this highlight. Amazing memories, making history as a community – thank you again for the support Channing Tatum, Bruce Buffer, Brandon Vera, Diego Sanchez, Cung Le, Gina Carano, Saulo Ribeiro, Kimo Leopoldo and all of the amazing people who supported this event.

My most important role in my life is being a father, role model and leader to my two amazing children, Logan and Kaylee.

I started watching them for 15 hours a day from 7:45 AM until 10:00 PM every day. Initially it was very challenging, because I was breaking the work-at-home workaholic cycle on top of figuring out what to do to add value to their lives.

I needed to “Dad-up” and realize that I needed to not just be in the same room as the kids, but truly be PRESENT in the moment and become more lovingly interactive with them. I realized that pressing play on NetFlix and letting the kids play video games for hours while you type away on the laptop isn’t truly being present with them and they notice.

I missed so much of their life with Grapplers Quest and I decided that I wanted to become a Super Dad.

I remember seeing Jungle Gym founder, Justin Garcia giving some tips and showing fun projects from his amazing Home Schooling Program due out soon (http://MasterChim.com) and I was inspired to set out to fill my new found time with the kids with activities to engage their hearts, minds, soul and spirit.

We started doing arts and crafts, learning Spanish, comic book drawing, practicing nightly meditation, learning the solar system, playing board and card games, star gazing with telescope on clear nights, “Super Hero Training” which is basic exercises with leadership skills and several other Life Skills development programs and several other FUN activities we do together. I even reward their good behavior with Family Inclusive Video Games like Beatles Rock Band nearly every evening – I’ll write about that another blog…all in all, I’m trying to be the Best Dad I can be. I love recommendations for fun things to do – please reply with any ideas.

NOW TO THE PHOTO…

“It’s not coming off!” I exclaimed.

The Red Stained hands in the main picture belong to my beautiful 3-year-old daughter, Kaylee Paige Cimins who slammed down a “Do-A-Dot” marker, breaking the felt tip and causing Red Ink to flow out of the marker. She had been told several times to not slam them down, so when she broke it, she started crying and proceeded to wipe RED INK all over her face too while trying to wipe away tears. She ran into the bathroom where I was giving my son a bath nearly exactly how the picture shows, except she was screaming and crying.

First, I thought she was bleeding and freaked out….who wouldn’t, she was dripping fresh red ink from her hands and face. Once I realized what occurred and that the Red was just Do-A-Dot Marker stained, I tried to clean the ink off. First I tried to clean off her hands with Trader Joe’s Next to Godliness Hand Soap which didn’t remove any ink at all. Unfortunately, then I tried to clean her hands with Dr. Bronner’s Magic Soaps Tea Tree Oil which removed only 15-20% of the color stains. AHHHH!!! What will I do???

ENTER MY SOLUTION —- Super Body Care’s Walnut Scrub

My daughter started crying again after Dr. Bronner soap barely did anything – she asked, “Daddy, are my hands going to be red forever?”. I calmed her down and promised her I would get it out.

Finally, I grabbed Cheri Heberling’s Super Body Care Walnut Scrub and within seconds of calmly scrubbing, the color came off…completely. She loves the smell, so she allowed me to gently scrub her face (around her sensitive skin of her eyes) as well, because she had wiped her face while crying her eyes looked like a prize fighter. It easily removed her Do-A-Dot eye makeup too.

Thank you Super Body Care for helping me look like a Super Dad to Kaylee. Check out Super Body Care products at: http://SuperBodyCare.com or purchase the Walnut Scrub directly here: http://superbodycare.com/shop/#!/~/product/category=1870672&id=8057839
