Everyday the news reports that life is getting a little harder and the world is getting a lot worse. People all around us are losing hope. And we all wish we were a little bit stronger. If only we could be more like Chuck Norris. After all...

  • When the bogeyman goes to sleep at night he checks his closet for Chuck Norris.
  • Chuck Norris once ordered a Big Mac at Burger King...and got it.
  • When Chuck Norris falls in water he doesn't get wet. Water gets Chuck Norris.
  • Chuck Norris can kill two stones with one bird.
  • Chuck Norris has counted to infinity...twice.
  • Dinosaurs are extinct because of the ChuckNorrissaurus.
  • Chuck Norris doesn't believe in the periodic table. The only element he recognizes is the element of surprise.
  • How much wood could a wood chuck chuck if a wood chuck could Chuck Norris? All of it.
  • Contrary to popular belief, America is not a democracy. It is a Chucktatorship.

Do some of those sound familiar? It is estimated that there are about 40,000 Chuck Norris jokes swirling around the internet. A website called Chuck Norris Facts has generated over 50 million hits and averages nearly 800,000 hits a day. Impressive, and if the jokes were true, Chuck would be all-powerful, all-knowing and everywhere at once. Well, okay, Chuck Norris is not Omniscient, Omnipresent and Omnipotent. But Jesus is. Maybe the key to overcoming life's obstacles is not to be more like Chuck...but to be more like Jesus.

Kicking and Screaming...Frank

John 16:33 Jesus said, "I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world."
