Its crazy how exciting God makes our mundane life not mundane. It blows my mind that I can go somewhere whether it be work, the grocery store, or even school and God allows me to see glimpses into people’s lives or gives me words to say to someone. How boring was it when I didn’t know any of this or choose to walk in this design for my life?? God makes life fun! He doesn’t just make it fun, but He allows us to feel great doing it. Yeah, sometimes its really awkward to step out and make that first move, but wow the benefits that come from it are so worth it! Just being able to see someone else’s face of amazement after you spoke life into them is a thrill! Yeah I sound a little crazy but life chasing after Jesus does seem crazy to our culture, but let me just tell you that it is so worth every bit of uncomfort and awkwardness.
“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” Jeremiah 29:11// Got the opportunity to share a piece of my testimony at @activatesm #blessed #activatewol
These are words I got from God as I sat in my room last night not being able to sleep due to the business of my mind…
“Be still, I am God. I have a plan. This plan will exceed far past what your eye can see and your imagination can take you. The vision may look hazy right now, but it is only because I am preparing you. You are being strengthened right now. I am fast at work in your heart piecing together a masterpiece. You are my son, my beloved, the one who I am most proud of. The one I brag about and am jealous for, the one I can’t go a day without being near. You are My favorite! You will be prepared to do great and mighty things for people . You will be used by Me to bring freedom to the many hardened and hopeless hearts around you. You are being intricately trained for work that can only be done by few and chosen. I choose you and I await your “yes” every morning you wake up. I am your Abba and nothing can change that. I paid a high price for you and there are no returns or exchanges. I hand picked you, you, the one with no flaws, the one who is fully restored by Me. Your fears and struggles are things that never go unnoticed. I see each one and hold them in the palm of My hand. I am tuning you just the way I want and nothing you did in the past can or has altered My opinions of you. Each day you become more perfect to me and I get excited just at the sound of your voice. Nothing is too big for Me to help you through. I placed each person in your life for a reason; past, present, and future. Every hand shake, eye glance, and hug is all a part of My perfect plan. You are loved so much! I can’t begin to explain how proud I am of all you accomplished thus far. Just wait to see what I have for you next! Be excited. Be expectant. Your river is going to be overflowing more than it already is now. You are a highly trained assassin who will do outrageous damage to the enemy. This will bring sight to those who couldn’t see before, noise to those who couldn’t hear, and life to those who are dead inside. Are you ready…? Because I know you are!
When you are feeling down try sitting alone quietly and just ask God a question. He waits for you to ask. It isn’t something scary or hard. It is something that will fill you up and encourage you for this thing we call life…TRY IT!

Hawaii is transforming my heart and opening my mind to endless oceans of God’s love. I learned that it takes a long time for God to work instantaneously….I want to tell you about an experience I had just a couple of weeks ago and the realizations it brought to my tiny mind. It goes like this…. One of my leaders for my Turkey outreach team, Erica, spoke words to me and for the first time I actually believed it. I never had someone have so much passion for me in what they were telling me. I am a prince and God wants and is waiting to use me….for the first time I actually felt like I do have a shot at becoming way bigger than I thought I could let myself be. I always seen myself as a great leader but never had the thought that it could actually happen. I know that I am a vessel and God will use me and I know I have a voice and I have the biggest king behind me to continue to remind me of how perfect I am and how great of a job I’m doing. I for the first time let everything go and am now so sick of getting into a normal mundane prayer huddle and popping out little prayers with no passion. I now believe the power of prayer and believe that God will answer prayers. I got a picture of us ,me, as robots. We were designed by a creator to do what he wants us to do but we are also different than a robot because we have an option to obey and do what our creator asks of us or we can disengage and be out of touch of this life and God that is so incredibly real. He made our ears to hear his rhythms of love and our voice to sing him songs of grace our hair he wove and numbered every strand. He is a mighty king who deserves our full attention and respect at all times. We were made different than a robot, we were wired with intamacy and love. That is all we need. Our hands he made to hold his and my feet he shaped to walk with him in our garden. He made our eyes to gaze upon his face. I listened to the words Erica told me ..”you are going to make a difference and be so good at it.” and actually believed them and felt her passion and hope for me and I began to weep. I never heard the words she spoke to me, and the words she spoke over me that I have heard before, I actually took to heart. I was told who I was and the plans God has for me and I chose to believe it and by doing that I seen it. I will from this day forward begin to believe the good news people speak to me and act put in it. I am a strong mighty man and warrior of God with a voice that has authority. When me and Erica joined into the huddle with our team, I looked down at our feet and just felt that I needed to ask God to give us the strength to stop doing just normal prayers and speaking quietly, instead, break out of this hopeless trans we are in and begin to cry out to our father to show up and guide us. Let us see you feel you and hear you. Cast down visions of provision. We are a army going into a nation we don’t know about but it is comforting knowing that my creator will be walking right beside me the entire time consistantly training me. INTIMACY IS CALLING ME…COME AWAY! As we kept praying I began to feel very heavy and started pushing my weight on two of my other teammates. I ended up sitting down and kept weeping uncontrollably and my whole arms and hands began to tingle and my body began to fill up with the holy spirit. My legs became limp and I tried to become in control but I couldn’t move and it was so peaceful and in no way scary. There was tingling everywhere and I even tried to make excuses for why this was happening and I couldn’t think of it. This is exactly how I asked God to reveal his presence. In a peaceful non fearing way and its exactly what He did. I asked this of him for a while now and he came instantly. We weren’t even in a time of intercession or receiving anything but he just butted right in and showed up to show me how great he is. The pressure I’ve been carrying is slowly getting lighter and I know what I am made for. I began to feel the desperate hearts and cry of people in the world and I know this is my duty to bring forth the great news of Jesus Christ. God mad us specifically and calls us all to do this one job, nothing else matters and is a waste of time. It is the reason I breathe. I felt the love of the father through my teammate Erica and I will forever remember that moment. God is so excited to hang out with us. Sometimes he can’t even wait for us to wake up in the morning to spend time with us.
Blessings and thank you to all my supporters. Please continue to lift me up in prayer as I leave Hawaii to live in Turkey in just 2 short weeks!
