Take Delight in the Lord

Psalm 37:4 says, “Take delight in the Lord, and he will give you your heart’s desires.” Until today – just now actually – I’ve always been focused on the second half of that verse.

“he will give you your heart’s desires”

I’ve been waiting and pleading with God to fulfill those desires.  As I was reading tonight, […]

Feeling Judgement

I recently had my roommate, Ben, give me a mohawk. My coworker, Jordan, asked me to get one with him. It’s been a long time since I’ve had a mohawk. Some of you may remember that I had them all the time. This time was different.

I experienced something new this time around. Something that I […]

See The World (Race) in Three Minutes

The World Race can be hard to explain.

We serve. We explore. We pray. We take risks. We love the unlovable. We get dirty.
We grow. We change.

Until now. The team […]

I arrived in Guatemala yesterday and the past 30 hours have been incredible.  It’s funny because out of all the countries that I ventured to on the Race, Guatemala wouldn’t have been the one that I thought I would return to first.  God wants me here.  I’m not sure why yet, but I know He […]

Identity

Identity.  It’s the one thing that all people struggle with.  Everyone asks “Who Am I?”.  It’s a focal point in American society.  We see people dance inappropriately on stage or have sex in movies just because they struggle with their identity or because they haven’t even begun to find their identity.  Bringing it closer to […]

I’m Terrible at Delegating

It’s true – and God’s been giving me opportunity after opportunity to develop the ability to delegate well.  I hope he continues to give me ample opportunities and still extends some grace my way.

Project Searchlight took place January 3-8.  It was a blast.  It was crazy busy and the preparation was super intense – but […]

New House (Photo Blog)

I moved in to a new house on Jan 1st.  It’s an absolutely gorgeous house with hardwood floors and, most importantly, an amazing view of Lake Lanier.  I live with six other amazing men of God that also work at Adventures in Missions.  Check it out!

The View from 10,000 Feet! (Part 3 of 3)

This is a continuation of my mini-series called “The View from 10,000 Feet!”.  You can read Part 1 here and Part 2 here.

So God reignited the desire to fly in my heart on The World Race.  What does that actually mean?

It means that learning how to fly has become priority number one in my life. […]
