Becoming More Like Him

Posted on

Have you ever asked the Lord to make you more like Him? It’s a petition that I’ve prayed for over and over again. To be made more like Christ in every way. Yet, I’ve come to the realization that in being made more like Him, there will be times of pain and sorrow. You see […]

A Heart for Croatia

Posted on

Many people, when I first mention Croatia, tend to give me a puzzled look.  “Croatia?” they ask. I’ve had many people say, ‘Oh, the cruise that I took there was beautiful,” or they list the touristy cities in Croatia, which I have never been to or even knew existed.

Finding My Family

Posted on

There have been times in my life where the overwhelming sense of loneliness left me feeling isolated and separated from the rest of the world. For me, it didn’t matter that I had a family that loved me, friends that cared for me, or even a church in where I could go to hear the […]

He’s in the Waiting

Posted on

The Waiting Period. Also known as the most difficult season in my book. The anticipation of being sent out. The eagerness to get where you’re going. The longing to be where you know the Lord has called you. The yearning, the tears, the prayers that are lifted up, the crying out to God. I wish […]

I didn’t know what came next. I didn’t even know where to begin. One thing I’ve realized over the past couple of months is that I’m […]

Inadequacy

I’ve talked to a lot of people back home recently and the number one question is ‘How’s it going?’ My initial response is always ‘good.’ However, the truth is most of my time here I feel completely inadequate. Inadequate (adj): lacking the quality or quantity required; insufficient for a purpose. The honest truth is that there […]

31 days, 19 hours, 47 minutes and 9 seconds

Posted on

The amount of time I’ve spent in Zagreb so far. Everyday this country feels more and more like home.I wake up not thinking about California but rather about the people here in Croatia. Yes, I still have my moments of missing my family, friends, church, fast food, car, hugs (yes, I mean actual hugs) and […]

Life is Your Ministry

Posted on

I’ve always wanted to serve on the missions field. To serve in a remote village in Africa or any country really. It’s been a desire that not many people understand. That deep longing to be sent and used in any which way that the Lord would please. Did I have my concerns? Yes. My main […]
