'Notice and act': Glenn's deeply personal thoughts on love

Tonight, I was going to take my lovely wife out to Billy Bob's for her birthday. It is really all that she wanted as a gift. Time, dancing with her two left footed husband.

We were getting ready to go in when something came up that forced us to leave.

We met this nice couple at the door who was going in to buy tickets. I stopped them and offered our tickets to them.

He recognized me right away but didn't say anything, just smiled and nodded. I nodded back and smiled.

When he offered to buy the tickets we refused. I told him to pay the tickets forward to someone else and began to walk away. As we did, he apparently told his wife who came running up behind me and said, "I just want to hug you please."

It was so nice. Later on the way home we stopped for some gas, I went in and there was a man and his son. They were from out of town. Again, so kind.

Then I met a man who came across the store and said, "I am from Australia. I have a two hour train ride and I listen to your podcasts. Lately, you are the only thing that gives me hope."

With such joy in his eyes, he shook my hand and looked almost through me and said: "thank you."

I cannot tell you how uplifting it was to hear. Especially tonight.

We may never meet, but I believe the spirit speaks to all of us in our lives.

Because I am a known person, yet most strangers to me, people will say what is on there mind and it more often than not it is something that helps me and on many occasions is an answer to a prayer or plea to my Father in Heaven.

I urge you to act and speak through your "promptings" or "feelings" (however you describe that moment when you know you should act or speak out).

You never know, but that little bit of human connection may be the only positive connection that person has made that day.

You are the answer to someone's prayer right now. Who is on your mind to call, write, reach out.

Maybe you are lying next to them reading this. Maybe they are upstairs all tucked in. Kiss them and tell them: the truth; I love you; I am sorry; I need you; thank you or whatever it is that you should not let pass another second.

Call them tomorrow. Just tell them! "I meant to call and then things spiraled out of control and then time passed and now I feel weird about it." They will understand. They have been there.

It might be a stranger or someone you don't know well that you will see at church. Maybe, like with me tonight, it is just someone standing in line at the gas station.

Perhaps it is someone that lives alone or at work that just really needs to talk to someone that cares. It doesn't have to be deep or take much time. It just has to be real.

If we are going to fix our country and world, we need to fix ourselves first. It will take acts of epic courage in the end.

Let's begin to strengthen that muscle today.

Say the things that are on your heart.

Turn to that person in line at the store and express the feeling that you are being given.

Let's not just notice people, let's really see them and then notice and act on how we "feel" and on what we hear from the spirit.

I am always turned off by us Christians, even in my own church and me included! We all want to get people baptized. I get it. I want to share what I have found as well. It changed my life. But we spend so much time trying to figure out ways to talk to people about Christ.

Why don't we figure out how to just LOVE EACH OTHER? No motive or hidden agenda.

If I could master anything in life it would be this: To truly love people, the first time I meet them. To have such compassion for others that I would want to really listen to them and see what is happening in their life good and bad. To be able to do that without fear! Wow! What a world we would experience.

I doubt I will ever "master" that but I think the first course in Love 101, just might be to notice and act.

I am greatly blessed that so many feel they know me. In many ways we do know each other. Perhaps we do "know each other" more than any other "celebrity" and "fan" group out there. Maybe it is because we share so much in places like Facebook.

Please always remember, to God, everyone is a VIP and our head and hearts are His Facebook. "Share" His comments when you know He just "liked" someone.

Thank you to all those who answered my prayers tonight.

From Dallas,

where the greatest woman I know is laying next to me because long ago she noticed me and then had the courage to to turn around, come back a few steps, shake my hand and say "thanks for all the laughs on the radio,"

Goodnight America.

Tonight, I was going to take my lovely wife out to Billy Bobs for her birthday. It is really all that she wanted as a...

Our sacred republic has never been in more danger than it is today. Little by little, industry by industry, the far Left is fundamentally transforming the country we love. And it's an aggressive, hostile kind of takeover we've only seen in some of the world's darkest societies.

On Glenn TV this week, Glenn Beck exposes how the Biden administration and Democrats are aggressively scrambling to reset everything: our free and fair voting system, our kids' education, our policing, immigration and border security, our economy, our military, and our energy supply.

Finally, Congressman Dan Crenshaw (R-Texas) joins to discuss how Biden's "woke" policies are threatening America's national security and our way of life.

Apparel company The North Face recently stated that it would no longer make jackets for oil and gas companies because it doesn't want to be associated with the fossil fuel industry. In response, Colorado-based oil and gas company Liberty Oilfield Services rented full billboard ads to remind The North Face of the truth: "Globally, 60% of all clothing fibers are made out of oil and gas. For North Face, it is likely 90% or more."

Liberty CEO Chris Wright joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to discuss just how much of our economy — beyond outdoor apparel and energy — wouldn't exist in a world without fossil fuels. And he warns that many companies are now deeming this truth to be "controversial."

"I have been for years, trying to get a real, honest dialogue about energy going," Chris told Glenn. "So we took this opportunity to point out that North Face jackets are ... almost completely made out of oil and gas. How can you choose not to associate with the essential material your equipment [is] made out of? So we put a billboard up ... the billboard says, 'That North Face puffer looks good on you. And it was made from fossil fuels.'"

"Most billboard companies did not want to run that billboard. They thought it was controversial," he added. "And Facebook put a hold on our brief video just saying the jacket looks good, this is what it's made out of. In today's world, that is controversial."

During a lecture at the Yale School of Medicine's Child Study Center, a New York City-based psychiatrist told students and faculty that she fantasizes about "unloading a revolver into the head of any white person that got in my way," among several other shockingly race-hating statements.

In April, Dr. Aruna Khilanani — a New York-based forensic psychiatrist and psychoanalyst — delivered the talk called "The Psychopathic Problem of the White Mind" virtually as part of the Yale School of Medicine's "Child Study Center Grand Rounds," a lecture program for "trainees in child psychiatry, psychology, and social work, faculty, clinicians, and scientists."

On the radio program Monday, Glenn Beck shared several quotes from an audio recording of the lecture provided by Bari Weiss, a former opinion writer and editor for the New York Times.

Here are a few of Khilanani's statements from the audio:

  • "This is the cost of talking to white people at all. The cost of your own life, as they suck you dry. There are no good apples out there. White people make my blood boil."
  • "I had fantasies of unloading a revolver into the head of any white person that got in my way, burying their body, and wiping my bloody hands as I walked away relatively guiltless with a bounce in my step. Like I did the world a f***ing favor."
  • "White people are out of their minds. And they have been for a long time."
  • "White people feel that we are bullying them when we bring up race. They feel that we should be thanking them for all that they have done for us. They are confused, and so are we. We keep forgetting that directly talking about race is a waste of our breath."
  • "We are asking a demented, violent predator who thinks that they are a saint or a superhero, to accept responsibility. It ain't gonna happen. They have five holes in their brain. It's like banging your head against a brick wall. It's just like sort of not a good idea."

"We must take a stand. We must speak out, because this is evil," Glenn said in response to Khilanani's shocking lecture. "I don't care who you voted for, you know this is evil."

The prices of our houses and food are already rising fast, but they will skyrocket to record highs if we don't fix the problem soon. So what's causing the inflation?

On the radio program this week, Glenn Beck said he doesn't believe it's the fault of our loggers, farmers, or truckers — many of them are really struggling. But the big corporations that control these industries are making record profits, all while the Biden administration is making some very odd decisions that could make the crises even worse.
