adventure to africa.

inspiration: I'm going to Kenya this summer!

i love mission trips.
they provide us true experiences to live out the Gospel, love others, and serve the Kingdom.
and guess what, we're commanded to do just that in the Great Commission.

Then the eleven disciples went to Galilee, to the mountain where Jesus had told them to go. When they saw him, they worshiped him; but some doubted. Then Jesus came to them and said,“All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.” -Matthew 28:16-20
what the Great Commission looks like for each us is different.

blank pages.

inspiration: those moments of waiting.

at some point or another, you've had to wait for something.
maybe that something was big.
maybe it was small.

im a pretty impatient person.
i don't like waiting.

but something that i'm constantly being remind of is that even though i'm waiting. God has a plan.

“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.
-Isaiah 55:8-9

this is a scripture i've been wrestling with for a while.
what are God's ways and thoughts for me?
