Step Up, Step Out (A Thought)

Sometimes there are needs that need to be met and most of the time you are able to meet those needs. It may be meeting another person’s need of food, water, shelter, or clothing. It may be a need to make a change in our society; maybe you see that the local government needs to change and you are just the person to do it. There are times in our lives when we see things…when we know that something needs to be done…but how many times do we believe we can make a change? How many times do we step up and step out of our comfort zones? If you read the story of David and Goliath you’ll read of a young boy who killed a giant, who took his (the giants) sword and cut his head off with it. But something you won’t read is where God told David to go and do it. God never told David, “I want you to go and take care of that giant Goliath and when you kill him I want you to cut his head off so that all the Philistines know that I am the Lord.” Never did God say that to David. The young shepherd boy saw an issue that wasn’t being taken care of and decided to do something about it. He decided to step up and step out to show the world how big his God is, David said to Goliath and all the Philistines, “I come at you in the name of God-of-the-Angel-Armies, the God of Israel’s troops, whom you curse and mock. This very day God is handing you over to me.” I believe that God is waiting for many of us to step up and out of our places of comfort and break out of the everyday “ordinary”. I believe that when we make a choice to do something to make a difference that God will honor that. I believe that God will work on our behalf when we have faith that it’s through Him that we can make a difference in our world. So I want to ask you this question…

“What are you doing to step up and step out to change our world and impact it for the Kingdom?”


Here we go…

So, here I sit in the darkness of our new apartment Anna and I have just moved into and I am thinking to myself, “Man, I should really take a shower, brush my teeth and get to bed because I’ve gotta get up at 6:30am for work!” But alas, everything in me wants to write this first blog so I can figure out how to set up this “web page”…Southeast Asia is on my mind. I know that in a very short while my family and I will be taking the biggest step of our lives together. Moving to Asia has been on my heart and mind for over a year now and finally we are making preparations to go! Anna and I plan on using this blog page as a way for y’all to keep up with whats going on in our lives as well as how the preparations are coming. We will also be using this page as a way to post things that we make, ie. videos, photos, music videos, and the like. So please subscribe to receive an email every time we make  a post! THANKS!!!
