Growing up in a Christian home surrounded by a father, mother, two bros who loved me, I was surely destined to engage my own relationship with Jesus Christ...right? It wasn't quite that easy. My life would become strewn with many hurdles from entering college, to the Navy And ultimately overseas. Some were seemingly insurmountable obstacles. They're all part of the Father's perfect design to nurture my walk with Him His hand wasn't going to let me go. The Lord's mission was to invite me into a journey of faith And implicit trust in Him through intimate, repeated encounters and, to many, unbelievable if not mysterious accomplishments by His hand. God's faithfulness would shine brilliantly I'd in turn become enthralled by His love, savor our fellowship/relationship, And become increasingly affirmed in my identity as His son. The Lord's activity throughout my life is more than human coincidence. It continually reaffirms He exists.
