    Jeremiah 29:13 What a beautiful promise from the Lord! How amazing it is that when we seek the Lord with all our heart, we will find Him! It's not like God is saying "You might find me." He doesn't say "Okay, time to play where's God!" He says "If you seek me with your whole heart, you WILL...

    James 1:12 So often we can let life get us down, we get upset or depressed, we allow the circumstances of our life to hold us back. Trials are sure to come, but let us be steadfast. Let us remain in the Lord, & He will be with us.

    Long Awaited update from India. ;)

    Howdy Y'all. Sorry I've been slacking so much on updating y'all on what's going on. For those who don't know, I spent 6 weeks in India January-February doing missions work. During my time there, God really did a lot of great things. There were also a lot of challenges. While in India I...

    Growing closer to God, learning more about self, and... oh yeah, God is AWESOME!

    Romans 12:3 ESV Humble yourselves. This can be, and is, hard for most of us. Especially in regards to comparison to others. We're all different, none of us are, or will be, the same. Don't compare yourself to others, whether putting yourself above others, or putting others above yourself...

    Psalm 42:11 ESV Are you going through a hard time? Do you have a hard time praising God right now? Trust in God. Put your hope in Him. Don't let the trouble that you are going through now keep you from the Father who loves you. He has not left you.

    Romans 10:13–15 ESV How will they know if they have never heard? How will they hear if no one speaks? Here and elsewhere I have read recently about how this place or that isn't the proper place to talk to others about Christ. Or that we should focus more on fellowship, or on showing Christ...

    1 Thessalonians 2:11-12 ESV Do you see a brother living an ungodly life? Are you yourself? We are not to sit aside and let them live this way. It is not being loving, and it definitely is not 'respecting their freedom' to sit aside and let them live in sin. We are to hold each other...

    1 John 3:16-18 ESV What are we doing to show love? Are we just talking or are we doing? Are you willing to lay down your life for your brothers? Are you even willing to help a brother? Do you see them in need, and keep on walking? Maybe they're moving, or sick, or broke down on the side of...

    Judges 4:1-3;15–16 ESV The people of Israel turned from God many times over. They followed their turning from God with crying out to Him to deliver them; and He did. If God delivered His people Israel, how much more will He do for you? He already sent His Son for you. We aren't perfect...

    Proverbs 4:13 ESV Keep hold of instruction. Sounds simple enough. Yet we fail to do it every day. Guard her, for she is your life. If someone told you 'if you want to live, then do this one thing' you would probably do whatever it was that they told you. So why do we ignore the same...

    Psalm 36:5–10 ESV I was really stressed and feeling really down and then read this. God is so great, and he is so mighty. His steadfast love, what a thought, what a concept to grasp.

    Matthew 28:19-20 ESV We all know these verses. However most of us really don't do anything to actually apply what we are told here. Go and make disciples. Make disciples of all nations (peoples). Baptize. This means all of us. Not just the special few that are 'gifted'. We are ALL...

    Acts 4:19-20 ESV Sometimes people or even the government will not like that we are sharing Christ and the Scriptures. We however should continue to do it because it is what God had commanded.

    Genesis 22:12 ESV I was reading my devotional and today's stuck out to me. Being willing to sacrifice, even if we're not required to is part of Christian life.

    Matthew 12:36–37 ESV Seems like words are the topic of the week. We should watch what we say, for we are held accountable for what we say. This is something I can say most people probably struggle with. It is easy for us to spout off something and then say "I wish I wouldn't have said that"...

    1 Samuel 3:4–10 ESV God was calling to Samuel, and Samuel didn't know it. He kept thinking that Eli was calling him. After many repeated attempts to call Samuel, Eli finally figured out what was going on. How many times has God called you, and in your ignorance you didn't respond? How many...

    Howdy Y'all. I have few requests here. I am being called into missions, and have been given a heart for missions. I have been on a few short term mission trips in the past and have a heart to share the Gospel to the unreached. Right now, I know that I need training, and to get involved...
