When I am in the midst of a changing season, my brain is continually absorbing and processing information in a way that causes me to not communicate the events very clearly and timely to the people around me. I have been blessed with amazing family and friends who deserve the opportunity to hear the stories of the journey. This blog is my desire and the way by which I can communicate what we are visibly walking through and what I am internally processing. I will intentionally be leaving out personal details, because those are things the world does not need to know, but besides that, my life is an open book. It is my hope that those reading will be encouraged by the blessings and the challenges of this journey.
Our journeys begin long before we are born. It began in a garden thousands of years ago with the creation of Adam and Eve. The truths that I rely on are…
- I (we are) am created is God’s image (Gen 1:26)
- I am (we are) worth dying for (John 3:16,17)
- I have (we have) a specific purpose in God’s magnificent and perfect plan (Ephesians 2:10)
- I am (we are) my Father’s son (Romans 8:14-17)
- I am (we are) the Salt and Light of this world (Matthew 5:13-16)
- I am (we are) rooted and continually built up in Christ (Colossians 2:7)
The circumstances of life, whether good or bad, are what God uses to mould and shape us into who we are and who we are called to be today. Not all of us are called to take significant risk and move our families half way across the country, but that is what Danielle and I have been called to do. If people do not agree, that is not by burden to bear, I am only responsible for what the Lord puts in front of me and my family. But my challenge to those around me will always be to rise up to a new level and operate within the gifts and skill sets God has blessed you with. Do not worry about what others around you are doing, but set your eyes on what God has called you to do and GO!
We are a few months into this journey at this point. Soon, I will back up to the beginning of this season and share the stories of struggle, grace, and the direction that has come from God challenging our family to pursue His purposes.
If you ever have questions, concerns, or just need prayer reach out and comment.
With Love and Blessings,
