I Am Second!

I Am Second

Some of you have heard me talk about one of my favorite ministry web sites, I Am Second (iamsecond.com). I can’t say enough great things about this site and the people that share their faith story on camera. Here is the I am Second video with Bethany Hamilton.

What is iamsecond.com?

Inspiring the Revolution of Second.

(Taken from the I Am Second web site.) I am Second is a movement meant to inspire people of all kinds to live for God and for others. Actors. Athletes. Musicians. Business leaders. Drug addicts. Your next-door neighbor. People like you. The authentic stories on iamsecond.com provide insight into dealing with typical struggles of everyday living. These are stories that give hope to the lonely and the hurting, help from destructive lifestyles, and inspiration to the unfulfilled. You’ll discover people who’ve tried to go it alone and have failed. Find the hope, peace, and fulfillment they found. Be Second.

Please, you should go on the I am second web page (link below) and check it out, but I am warning you that you will be on this site for a while! After you go on the site you should tell others about it!


Do me a favor, if you are second (meaning that you have put Jesus first in your life) would you write the words “I Am Second” in the comments section of this post?

Oh, and by the way? “My name is Barry Hill– and I am second.”

    I really enjoyed this post Barry! It’s been a theme for me lately and I think I needed this! Thinking about college and the rest of my life, I’m having trouble on how to give my life up to glorify God. I was looking for something where I can use my gifts to do God’s work. I got so caught up thinking that I’ll lay my life down, that I forgot that He’s in control. All my plans and worries were stimulated out of my own will to do what I thought was God’s plan for me. I was giving myself a different role than what God’s specific purpose for me is. It’s really amazing to see God working through people like Bethany Hamilton who give glory to Him in the things they do like surfing. I know that in the end God is glorified and not us, so I find comfort in knowing that no matter what my role is, big or small, it’s God’s perfect plan and it’s just as important as any other person’s role in the body of Christ. Trusting God is a beautiful thing and I’m so thankful that God is gracious and I can lean on Him.

    Here you go Barry:
    “My name is Matthew Kim – and I am most DEFINITELY second.”

    I would like to be second, but I think I vacillate wildly between first (forgetting God) and eighth (after the 6 kids, husband, but forgetting God again). LOL! Here’s to TRYING for second until I forget again :-) Thanks for the reminder!

    Truth be told—I am right there with you! It probably switches (for me) every hour or so… maybe even more than that. Thanks for the comment and the transparency! Blessings!
