While the earth remains, seedtime and harvest, cold and heat, summer and winter, day and night, shall not cease.
Genesis 8:22


The world seems to revolve around seasons. There are times to sow seeds and there are times to reap the harvest. We see this with crops as seasons change. We see this spiritually as we share the gospel. Yet, so often we miss the sowing and harvesting in the mundane areas of our lives. So often we overlook those that have sowed seeds...

“The King will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of 

the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.’
Matthew 25:40


As we step back and look at all the Lord has done over the last several years all we can do is praise Him. He is so good and so faithful. From starting Light of the World with a simple bottle of water, to having Bible studies with the homeless in the woods, to squeezing 20 adults into a small studio apartment f...

We love because He first loved us.
1 John 4:19

If we knew then what we know now would we still go? Last year at this time we had no idea that we would be spending eight weeks in Guatemala this year. Last year at this time we had just taken our first trip by ourselves with no translator and no other missionaries. Just the two of us and our backpacks. I still remember that hour and a half ride from the airport in the back of the local pastor's 1981 pickup truc...

For you shall worship no other god, for the LORD, whose name is Jealous, is a jealous God. Exodus 34:14


I don't know about you, but when I think of idols or people who worship other gods I typically think about people in other countries, different religions, and specifically gold statues. If I was honest with myself I would look around my life and think, "I don't have an idol problem." What about you? Have you worshipped any other gods lately? A couple week...

God answered Solomon, "Because this was in your heart, and you have not asked for possessions, wealth, honor, or the life of those who hate you, and have not even asked for long life, but have asked for wisdom and knowledge for yourself that you may govern my people over whom I have made you king, wisdom and knowledge are granted to you. I will also give you riches, possessions, and honor, such as none of the kings had who were before you, and none after yo...

I am the vine; you are the branches. Whoever abides in me and
I in him, he it is that bears much fruit, for apart from me you can do nothing.
John 15:5


Have you ever struggled with questioning everything you do? Have you wondered if you've made the right decisions? Have you woke up in the middle of the night thinking you should have done something differently the day before? Have you gone through seasons wondering if you heard God correctly? These kinds of...

From His fullness we have all received grace upon grace.
John 1:16


So often we look only at one characteristic of God and operate in that one attribute instead of looking and operating at the fullness of who God is. We operate in God is love, but forget to operate in God is holy at the same time. So often we view God as one-sided. As if He can only operate in one attribute at a time. Yet, there is so much more to Him than what our minds understand. We compa...

And when they had prayed, the place in which they were
gathered together was shaken and they were all filled with the
Holy Spirit and continued to speak the word of God with boldness.
Acts 4:31


One of my favorite Francis Chan quotes is, "Simon says, 'Pat your head,' we pat our heads. Jesus says 'Go therefore and make disciples,' we memorize that verse." How true it is that the comforts of our lives has brought us to this place. With everything going on in t...

And we know that for those who love God all things work together
for good, for those who are called according to his purpose.
Romans 8:28


There are some scriptures that we cling to during times of uncertainty. Most of these scriptures are promises that bring us hope. Yet, if we're honest with ourselves there are a lot of days where the same hopeful promise leaves us feeling hopeless. Have you ever proclaimed Romans 8:28 over your life only to be left feelin...

The LORD is my strength and my shield; in Him my heart trusts, and I am

helped; my heart exults, and with my song I give thanks to Him. The Lord

is the strength of His people; He is the saving refuge of His anointed.
Psalm 28:7-8


When you think about strength and what it means in our world today you probably think of things that take a lot of physical strength. Running, lifting weights, crossfit, etc. Yet, strength is so much more than the physical. Strengt...
