With One Desire…

Posted: February 2, 2012 in Uncategorized

I guess the first question when reading a new blog is, “What’s with the name?” or “Why name it that?”  Here is my answer.  I thought for about an hour for something that was meaningful. I didn’t want something that was just made up by a site or didn’t have truth to whatever my life might be like in a few years.  My mind kept thinking of Denver names, Pearl names, and missional names.  I kept thinking about alot of things but my heart was not satisfied.  I started listening to Leeland “Follow You” and found myself in a different ballpark after that.  This is when I thought of Starfield’s “Reign in Us.”  This song has long been a prayer of mine and a hope for a life that I have just started with my wife.  So give it a listen while reading the rest of my first blog!  

So the past month or so has been the most hectic time of my life.  The hecticness is all because my fiance (then) graduated, then we got married, and then we moved to Denver.  SLOW DOWN!  I know!  So here is what I want to tell you about this time period.  God has been so good.  First of all Joy has entrusted me to be her husband and leader of the house and 2nd God has entrusted us as bearers of His gospel to Denver.  What is more magnificent?  We started trying to figure out how this entire ministry and move to Colorado was going to happen and He just made sure that it did.  We had no money and through the service of others for the gospel, we had it.  So now we are in Denver, in an apartment cluttered by boxes of stuff.  I don’t know what to do but to thank the Lord for His provision and His grace.  I am grateful because Joy and I were once God’s enemy and adversary but now we are reconciled and called to do His work.  Not to rob Mickey Mouse but “Hot Dog Hot Dog Hot Diggity Dog!”

Romans 5: 6 For while we were still weak, at the right time Christ died for the ungodly. 7 For one will scarcely die for a righteous person—though perhaps for a good person one would dare even to die— 8 but God shows his love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us. 9Since, therefore, we have now been justified by his blood, much more shall we be saved by him from the wrath of God. 10 For if while we were enemies we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son, much more, now that we are reconciled, shall we be saved by his life. 11More than that, we also rejoice in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have now received reconciliation.
