So I’ve been feeling that we really needed to share with you where we have come from. Hopefully in doing that we can learn where we are going all the while praying we can inspire someone else with our journey. So in a brief story Id like to say that I (Angie) did not come from a christian family. Every type of abuse was happening in that family. My family was lost and alcoholics and drug addicts my entire life. Angry. bitter and hopeless is still running rampant within my family tree. When I was 16 I met a boy and he was a “christian” which I had NO idea what that even ment! Soon after we started dating we were Boldly invited to a “fun youth event” riiiiiiight. Little did I know that I would give my life to Jesus at 16 at that “event”. From there on my life circumstances didn’t immediately change but I had HOPE. When you are at your rock bottom Hope is a beautiful thing. I have watched Him break chains of abuse, alcohol, drugs, anger in my life. It has nothing to do with me but everything to do with my God. which is exactly why I have such a desire to point people to Him. I havent done everything right. Trust me. That is how He works though he equips the un equipped. He uses what society throws away. He loves the “un lovable.”
As we prepare to go to New Zealand there are so many things that we are consumed by. We are pushing in this week and expecting Him to show up in awesome ways! We know that we look crazy…we even think that we are crazy! We know its insane! What are we to do when God calls us SO clearly other than take an audacious step in our faith that we feel we never regret. I would rather live my life failing everytime taking big steps for God than living in fear too afraid to take a step at all. Besides maybe we are a fool? I will be a fool for Jesus any day.
Yes, everything else is worthless when compared with the infinite value of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord. For his sake I have discarded everything else, counting it all as garbage, so that I could gain Christ
