If you don’t know what you are doing…

These words from James 1 from “The Message” grabbed me and shook me this morning; “If you don’t know what you are doing, pray to the Father. He loves to help. You’ll get his help and won’t be condescended to when you ask for it…” And there is more. I encourage you to read the whole chapter and listen for the Holy Spirit speaking to you.  I know it seems completely counterintuitive, but God actually loves to hear us admit that we don’t know what to do. When we are willing to throw ourselves on him and cry out that the only thing we really know to do is to trust him and depend on his agenda, we are actually getting somewhere.

A Jesus follower is someone who operates from a place of wisdom, honesty and gritty surrender to our real situation… We are completely lost unless we depend on the Father every moment of every day. Check your heart and ask yourself whether or not you actually believe God loves to help you. He does! And there is no moment like this one right now to cry out to Him for wisdom!

Serving a Life Sentence – Telling My Story

Stoked for what is coming!

Wow! It is so fun to be part of Kings Valley Church! I am super pumped about the opportunity I have to help families love Jesus and live for the honour of his name. I am going to have fun posting here on this new blog. I hope you drop in often to check out what’s happening in this rambling, churning imagination of mine. My real desire is to stir you up for what is coming! The future of God’s kingdom is coming to meet us and it is gonna be amazing! Through knowing Jesus Christ and becoming sons and daughters of God we are going to be right in the thick of it.

Super proud of Pastor Brent and the team that he is pulling together! Don’t hold back if God is stirring you to roll up your sleeves and to get involved in taking KV Church into the future. There is lots to do for sure!

One of the cool things I am deeply involved in right now is overseeing KV Youth while we search for a new youth pastor. We need all hands on deck and lots of volunteer help to support this hugely important ministry. So, parents of students and other interested volunteers can get in touch with me and I will happily put you to work 🙂

Thanks for dropping in to and drop in often!
