Not a Victim to the Battles

We all have battles. I don’t know about you, but my battles have seemed to increase recently. I don’t feel like I have had any time of relief to recover or process through each one, the fiery darts of the enemy just keep coming in my ministry, my family, and my environment. It all seemed…

When Loyalty Became Boring

I love my generation. I believe that God has so much in store for us. We are unique, radical, free-thinking, non-judgmental, genuine, free, and innovative. But we’ve paid a price for our freedom and innovation, and I believe one of the things we’ve exchanged for innovation is loyalty. Actually, even I don’t necessarily want to…

Unwrapping Promises

Lately, I’ve been meditating on the promises of God. Sometimes I think of the promises of God vaguely… like that He will use me, that He has called me, etc. Which is true! Or I may think of the promises He’s given in the Word of God. But I don’t usually think of or remember…

Wilderness Faith

Hidden away in the hearts of many “believers” is a secret. It’s a secret that the heart itself often doesn’t recognize, and if it is realized, the heart doesn’t know how to remedy it. It’s a space that contradicts the very identity of a believer, like a pocket of air contained within a vessel of…

My Desert, My Gift

He’s the one who graciously leads us into the green pastures and He’s the one who graciously walks with us through the valley of the shadow of death

20 Days Social Media Detox

This is a reflection on 20 days without social media or any internet usage. I will be using iMessage and phone calls because I live in Thailand and very few people (mainly my family and a couple of team members here) iMessage me. I decided to write this diary of sorts to show the effect…

Roads and Signs

Here in Nepal, things are not always as you expect or anticipate them to be. This whole trip has been that way, but I should have known it would be. Everything from our Thai visa processing, to transportation, to even making simple phone calls has been longer or more complicated then it should have been. Right…

A Tribute to Process

“If you can see your path laid out in front of you step by step, you know it’s not your path. Your own path you make with every step you take. That’s why it’s your path.” Joseph Campbell I didn’t plan to work with Asian Mission Outreach (AMO) when I joined Go To Nations (my…

The Journey to Breakthrough

Have you ever thought about what it takes to get breakthrough in an area of your life? I think I’ve always thought of breakthrough being catalyzed by an event, a word, or supernatural encounter. But my perspective has begun to change. I’ve realized that breakthrough isn’t something that will just happen to me, I need…

Moved by Love

I held a girl’s small frame tightly in my arms as her tears overflowed from her cheeks and spilled onto our feet. I wanted to squeeze her until she truly felt and believed that she was loved. My compassion stirred for the Thai people as I realized that not one of them was left in…

Laying Down, Leveling Up

As I’ve been entering into my second year of my apprenticeship here in Thailand the Lord has been speaking to me of breakthrough, of going to another level with Him. I originally sensed Him speaking this about worship, but now I’m seeing that He is also wanting to bring me to a greater level of…

Top Secret

Not much we do these days is done in secret. A glimpse at Facebook Live, Instagram Stories, or Snapchat, can tell us what most of our friends and acquaintances are up to, no matter where they are in the world. Any moment of our lives that is vaguely interesting or noteworthy can be posted for…
