“Freedom is Not a Lost Cause”

Hi friends.

I hope you all are well.

Last night, I found myself praying. It was difficult for it to not be an angry prayer. Continue reading

Honoring the Victims of the Virginia Beach Municipal Center Shooting

Dear Friends,

I just wanted to take a minute to honor the 12 people who passed away last Friday, May 31st, in a shooting in the Virginia Beach Municipal Center building in Virginia Beach, Virginia. Each of these people were precious in Jesus’ sight, and they deserve to be remembered.

Please pray with me, as these people’s loved ones now have to live their lives without them.

“Dear Jesus,
You are God alone. Though we don’t understand why these things happen, we choose to trust You.
Please be so near to the families of these 12 people… we pray that You would comfort them, and that they would allow You to comfort and strengthen them.
You are unstoppable, Jesus. Please bring good even out of such anguish and tragedy.
In Jesus’ Name we pray,
Amen.”


Jesus Christ died so that we might live with Him forever. Learn more about who He is, and what He has done for you and for me, here.

Pray this Memorial Day

Some people remember and celebrate their lost loved ones on Memorial Day; others honor those who have been lost in wartime.

Whichever camp you fall into (or perhaps both), please focus your prayers on grieving loved ones and on the US military.

Thank you, and have an amazing Memorial Day weekend!

A Deadly Plane Crash (and Reflecting Upon Our Lives)

It’s not usual that tragedy strikes so close to home. A small passenger plane crashed and burned near my home in Northern Colorado, killing the only person inside of it.

This is shocking, to say the least. Children from nearby schools watched the plane crash, no doubt traumatizing them. It is a reminder to all of us that we are closer than we think to our last breath—and that tragedy can happen anywhere.

…for he knows how we are formed, he remembers that we are dust.
(Psalm 103:14, NIV)

As you pray for those who were affected by this crash, I hope you take a moment, along with me, to reflect upon your life. Are we spending the time we have wisely? Are we being good stewards of everything that is given to us?

I’ll be the first to admit that I have not been a good steward of the time Christ has given me. But knowing I could pass at any moment 1) keeps my eyes on Christ throughout all things, and 2) encourages me to spend what time I have loving Jesus, and loving others. Most of all, it reminds me of the absolute importance of knowing Jesus as Lord and Savior, and gives me urgency to tell others about Him.

At the end of the day, these things are what truly matter. I hope that I, and you all, do them well.

Do you know Jesus?

Approximately 2,000 years ago, God sent His Only Son, Jesus Christ, to save the world and to become the only way by which people can know the Father and be saved. Learn more about Jesus and what He has done for you, here.


Please pray (prayer sheet here)…

  • For those affected by this plane crash.
  • That unbelievers would come to know Christ, even through this.
  • For the Chibok girls and Leah Sharibu, who face trial, difficulty, and probably death everyday.

Thank you for your prayers!
