The eternity thing

July 12, 2013 Leave a comment

I am on a plane leaving my grandpa. He is near death and I don’t think he will make it through another day. I feel a surprising peace about life. Not that he was this very faithful or religious guy… But more that I totally trust God. His plan is better than my plan. His mercy, his justice and his sense of morality are higher than mine. I leave knowing that we serve a great God who is loving and powerful. What he does is best. I sense also that words must be said to those who are living, about who God is and why we are here. I pray for my grandfathers soul, as I pray for mine and my people. God certainly is good and this life certainly is short. I want to live with passion and peace, to strive valiantly through life. At the end to be able to say as the mouse did in end of narnia, “I would lay down my sword to see your (aslan’s) country” not a huge narnia guy but that quote is bomb.

Staying Focused

easter baptismsSo, despite probably suffering from ADHD and the shortening attention span of today. I am committed to BEING PRESENT where i am this year. Coming off easter Sunday was a super high, as a couple guys were baptized and a number of helpful conferences that i attended in March. This last week, I sat in some bible studies with college students and feel at those moments that this personal level of ministry is the best thing about the church. The conferences, the big church services and organizational stuff is all part of it… but the best thing is just sitting in a study talking about the meaning of Jesus death on the cross with a college student who needs to hear that. #refreshing

We are like Dust

July 18, 2012 Leave a comment

So grateful to God this morning for my life. I am looking at the sunrise and thinking how Great is our God.
I often think about how short life is and how little we are in the scope of the universe. I started praying to God and reminding him that I am His creation and that He made this plan and that I am just dust of the earth.

“Praise the Lord, my soul;
all my inmost being, praise his holy name. Praise the Lord, my soul,
and forget not all his benefits— who forgives all your sins
and heals all your diseases, who redeems your life from the pit
and crowns you with love and compassion, who satisfies your desires with good things
so that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s. The Lord works righteousness
and justice for all the oppressed. He made known his ways to Moses,
his deeds to the people of Israel: The Lord is compassionate and gracious,
slow to anger, abounding in love. He will not always accuse,
nor will he harbor his anger forever; he does not treat us as our sins deserve
or repay us according to our iniquities. For as high as the heavens are above the earth,
so great is his love for those who fear him; as far as the east is from the west,
so far has he removed our transgressions from us. As a father has compassion on his children,
so the Lord has compassion on those who fear him; for he knows how we are formed,
he remembers that we are dust.” (Psalm 103:1-14 NIV)
