mercy falling in Carolina

Today was one of those days that you dream of in ministry. God showed up in gracious ways and opened doors that I could not open myself.

From being on campus and in the right place at the right time today at Wake Forest I was able to have some divinely appointed ministry. I feel God's hand in favor with everyplace I go whether it's on campus in Westwood or even here on the East Coast. I know I am meant to live this way, in his favor and mercy, but don't always feel like I deserve it. But that's the thing about the character of God, he gives grace and mercy because he loves us, because he loves us, because he loves us. And his heart is to give and to love. He opposes the proud but gives grace to the humble. 

Tonight I sat in the first ever, to my knowledge, UCLA men's soccer away game Chapel. I sat across from a men who have a powerful influence in college soccer and in our nation. I believe each one in the room and on this team can make our world a better place. I also believe each one can come into a love counter with the Creator of the universe.

I'm so thankful to be where I am tonight. Even though it's another night alone on this journey of mine in ministry, I know I'm not alone. I am staying in another city on an adventure with the King of Kings. God is taking me all over this world as a single man to cultivate the authority that he is given to me. The authority to bring healing, hope, and life to the lost. A healing that would run so deep in them to help people become aware of God's presence in their own lives. A healing that would shift the very course of their life. Sometimes I wonder if The Holy Spirit can top the experience of today but I know He will. With his sweet and delicate grace He always does. He brings his presence to those who seek it everytime (Psalm 104).

I have no idea of where God will continue to take me in my adventures with Him but I know the places I go will never get old and they will always be good. His love story over my life is one that will not end.

I may be 31 but I feel the journey is just beginning...

a special intro video from the Philippines

One of the days we were in Tacloban we had a morning outreach cancelled.  We found this out right at the time where it was about to begin.  With that new window of time we had we decided to make a video introducing our team and lets just say we had some fun with it.  I hope you enjoy!

Also check out the end of trip video in my older post as well!

Maundy Thursday...

Today is Maundy Thursday... the day we remember when Jesus and his disciples broke bread together and it became the first communion. What a powerful night in the history of our faith.

Jesus knew the cross was coming. Maybe you have some amazingly hard tasks in front of you. David knew opposition was coming for him in Psalm 13 but he pressed in and ended his Psalm like this:

5 But I trust in your unfailing love.
I will rejoice because you have rescued me.
6 I will sing to the Lord
because he is good to me.

Remember today that The Lord sent his son Jesus on the most purposeful mission of all time: the redemption of the world. Give him praise today. Give him all of you today. Plan today to find a Good Friday service tomorrow if you can. Give your heart time to rekindle the flames of fire that burn to make him known.
