The Mission


Over the years this space has been refined as God worked on my heart. A couple of things have remained the same: the Character of God and His gifting of the Gospel. What’s changed by His mercy is my understanding of who He is and my calling to use this life to know Him more and give Him away to others. 

For many years my life was void of any real, lasting joy. I aimed to please people more than God. I pursued circumstantial feelings over faith. I sought my will over His will. Feelings of shame, guilt, overwhelm, and fear ruled my life.

I didn't understand who I was in God or what it looked like to live fully in my Kingdom identity: redeemed, restored, revived. I didn't know how to build a wholehearted life out of the mess of my brokenness.

I've learned the solution is life on God's terms. No more darkness of doubt and worry of self-gain, but a surrendered life free of fear, full of joy. The mission field of life has uncovered a great truth: Wholeheartedness is the work of surrender

The surrendered heart experiences His abundant offering. Thread by thread, God takes seemingly mundane moments of life to show us His great love isn’t found in striving for the next best thing, it’s found in small, daily acts of surrendered obedience.

Wholehearted finishing is the process of pouring out of our lives as a drink offering as we yield to God's plans. It's the ordinary moments woven together that create a vibrant tapestry of wholehearted abundance. 

The meaningful mundane. The mess of the margin. The daily abiding as He becomes greater and we become less. This is where He opens our eyes to the wonders of His promises. The tapestry of our life unfolds as He carefully weaves together joy, conflict, hope, suffering and perseverance of every season.

In recasting vision for this space I’ll offer glimpses of the tapestry God is weaving in my own life as I pursue a wholehearted finish. Through story and study, I pray we’ll come to see wonders of a loving Father, a gracious Savior and an interceding Spirit right here in the midst of our ordinary. 

May we join the apostle Paul at the end of our race in saying: I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith. 2 Timothy 4:7
