“For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my
ways,” declares the Lord. “As the heavens are higher than the earth, so
are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts.
We are thankful to say we have survived our first five weeks in Guatemala! It's been more challenging than we ever imagined, but we are starting to feel like we are somewhat getting a handle on all the new things. If that's re...
The Lord is not slow to fulfill his promise as some count
slowness, but is patient toward you, not wishing that any
should perish, but that all should reach repentance.
2 Peter 3:9
We have now been in Guatemala for three weeks and it is still nothing like we thought it would be. Every time we think we start to have somewhat of a schedule our day turns completely upside down. While difficult at times we have learned that it is just part of the adventure. Har...
You have multiplied, O LORD my God, your wondrous deeds and your thoughts toward us; none can compare with you! I will proclaim and tell of them, yet they are more than can be told.
We have internet! We've only been in Guatemala for 12 days, but we feel like we have been here forever! It is safe to say that learning to live and minister in Guatemala has been nothing like we thought it would be. In the last 12 days we have had to relearn everythi...
Looking back over this past year amazes us. We cannot believe all the Lord did throughout the year. 2017 seemed to be the year of waiting. Waiting on the Lord to do what He wanted to do. It was a year for us to get out of the way, surrender all, and let the Lord come in and work behind the scenes doing only what He can do.
In 2017, we spent eight weeks in Guatemala building relationships, leading mission teams, and getting to know the culture as we prepa...
Ah, Lord God! It is you who have made the heavens and the earth by
your great power and by your outresteched arm! Nothing is too hard for you.
So often we complain when we don't understand God's process. We try to rush it. We try to get around it. We try to figure out a different way. The process is often painful and uncomfortable. Yet, I am learning how important the process actually is. As most of you know we have now technically been homele...
Then the Lord said to Paul in a night vision, "Don't be afraid, but keep on speaking and don't be silent. For I am with you, and no one will lay a hand on you to hurt you, because I have many people in this city." And he stayed there a year and six months, teaching the word of God among them.
Fear is one of the biggest stumbling blocks in life. It keeps us contained to a small area of comfort. Some people are afraid of the unknown...
So we do not lose heart. Though our outer self is wasting away, our inner self is being renewed day by day. For this light momentary affliction is preparing for us an eternal weight of glory beyond all comparison, as we look not to the things that are seen but to the things that are unseen. For the things that are seen are transient, but the things that are unseen are eternal.
2 Corinthians 4:16-18
So often we walk into situations or opportunities and immedi...
No unbelief made him waver concerning the promise of God, but he grew strong in his faith
as he gave glory to God, fully convinced that God was able to do what he had promised.
Have you ever been in a season where it feels like the Lord has been drilling into your head that things happen in His timing not your own? Of course we all know that, but when it continues to happen over and over in situations where we see our own deadlines...
Then the righteous will shine like the sun in the kingdom of their Father. He who has ears, let him hear. Matthew 13:43
So many people are looking for breakthrough. Breakthrough in the natural and the supernatural. Breakthrough in relationships. Breakthrough in marriages. Breakthrough in finances. Breakthrough in work places. Breakthrough in our walk with the Lord. Yet, when it comes to walking by faith not by sight many of us retreat. We want...
Listen to me, O coastlands,
and give attention, you peoples from afar.
The Lord called me from the womb, from the
body of my mother he named my name.
Adoption is something that very few people today understand. Unless you have personally been adopted or have adopted a child into your family it can be hard to grasp the magnitude of love that is behind it. I believe this is one of the greatest reasons why so many followers of Jesus...
