Today I realized the Lord is clearly telling me to commit my battles and giants to Him. Let Him fight and win. For power belongs to God, not me. "God sent him [Jesus] to buy freedom for us who were slaves to the law, so that he could adopt us as his very own children. … Continue reading Be still & Let God move!

Today's dinner was Wendy's, my guess is that tomorrow's will be a nice bowl of pasta with my sweet brothers in Italy.

Here I am, just a young guy, traveling the world, becoming living proof that God’s will isn’t a scary place to be.
