I live in the beautiful desert of Albuquerque, New Mexico. I’m married to a wonderful woman and I have a precious little daughter. They remind me of God’s unmerited favor towards me every single day of my life.
I spent many years of my life in the right places, saying the right things- yet I was lost as could be. Selfish, prideful, and stuck in sin, drowning in a sea of my own false self-righteousness. But God never stopped chasing me. Little by little, he stripped away the walls of pride and showed me I was in desperate need of a savior. He showed me the emptiness of everything I had once desired in this world. He showed me there is so much more to this life than what I see. He showed me the inexpressible joy of a closeness with the Creator of my soul. He showed me that I was made for Him and that I belong to Him. And He showed me that the greatest and most important thing I could ever do with my life is to know and glorify Him alone.
My life has been changed by Jesus. It is not an outward change of mere behavior, deeds, or appearances- He has transformed me from the inside out. He has revolutionized my desires, thoughts, and motives. He has given me abundant life and has satisfied a once longing, thirsty soul. In a world of uncertainty, He is the anchor of my life. This blog is the result of a changed human being, a response to everything that Jesus has done for me. It is one simple way in which I strive to pick up my cross and follow Him, the Author of my faith. I pray that it would both encourage and confront. I pray that it would cause someone to think about the things of this life that are truly important and consider the insignificance of those that aren’t. I pray that it would be a blessing to someone. I pray that the Bible would be revered and I pray that God would be glorified.
