[ seek intimacy with Jesus-
-the rest is overflow ]
I'm alive and God is good.
His glory painting the skies / His faithfulness covers the earth in heavenly light /
"Your kingdom come, Your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven."
africa update: a big change of plans ||
I went to bed last night thinking when I woke up today I would be telling you about how it was only one week until I am leaving for the greatest adventure of my life yet and how excited I am for God’s plans for me and all I’m going to learn.
However, when I got up this morning I discovered that His plans for me were a little different that what I have been planning on.
The situation has changed and my brother and his family will no longer be at the school and because of this my parents and I have decided it is best that I, as a minor, should not go overseas for the first time and try and attend Harvest School on my own.
It is a very difficult time for me as all my plans have now been turned upside down. However, I know that since God allowed this to happen He has a special alternative plan, greater than I know. So I am resting in the embrace of His goodness and will.
Today and tomorrow I am working on registering for classes at Clark. God is putting everything together for me and it is going pretty well so far.
I love you all, and can’t thank you enough for the support you have given to me these past few months. I am thankful to Jesus for all that He taught me in my preparations and even through the disappointment.
He does all things well.
our love will loud
our love will be strong
our love should be hands and feet that serve you in this world
so let it stay true, and let it endure
that you would be glorified, worshiped and adored
what a pleasure and delight it was to finally meet this lovely miss today :) I can’t wait to spend the next couple months getting to know her better!
we will be traveling together, leaving in TWO WEEKS, for our greatest adventure yet - Africa.
wow, Jesus is crazy faithful and good and just really rad.
who do you want to be?
I’ve realized lately I’ve been going in the opposite direction of who I want to be. my identity is in Christ, and I want that to be lived out in my character. I’ve been straying away from that, and I want to start the journey back.
I want to lived a full life on the edge, driven by the fear of God rather than the fear of man. honest & kind. loving forgiven and forgiving. free. trusting. faithful. friend.
I want to live out sacrificial love - giving everything I have and what I am, for the sake of the cross to the glory of Christ, compelled by love, for the benefit of others without expecting any sort of return or reciprocation except my heavenly reward.
tbh, this very much not how I’ve been lately, so I think I need to step back and refocus. (at Main Street-Downtown Vancouver)

fun with #hyperlapse on the way home last nite, edited with #snapshow and IG
second time getting to see them play, first time in over a year.
my favorite humans, these guys bring so much happiness to my life. I feel like the luckiest kid on earth to be able to know them.
they mean the world to me.
we were late tonite and missed their first song, then they only got to play 2 more. but they rocked it.
p.s. I’m pretty sure the applause was loudest for you. that may have been due to the gradual hearing loss, but all the same, you guys are the best. (at Hawthorne Theatre)

let the words i profess my love.
let the notes i choose be Your favorite tune;
and, Father, let my heart be after You.”
