4 || So that His glory comes – Training Ground

I have recently been paying more attention to “so that” sentences in the Bible. The one that I always go back to is: [John 14:29] I have told you now before it happens, so that when it does happen you will believe. I love this. It takes the glory and pride off myself, and gives [...]

The Training Ground Series - Small battles now prepare us for bigger battles later.  Are You Willing to Fight? - Fighting now produces perseverance later.

“I remember the days of long ago; I meditate on all your works and consider what your hands have done.” (Psalm 143:5) While I was away on the World Race, a mission’s trip that took me to 11 countries in 11 months, I prayed that every blog I posted would impact at least one person. Based [...]
