These lyrics are scary similar to the lyrics I’ve written out to the Lord in my journal. Like, where did he find my journal and change my lyrics to avoid plagiarism?!Read More
What even is joy?
Ever since I came back from my mission trip a month ago, I have been absolutely convicted about joy in my life.Read More
I want to tell you what Paint Your Faith is all about. I created it to join together amazing
believers who share the same struggle: sharing their faith with others. As Christians, it can be so
hard to gather up the strength to put a word in a conversation, to defend yourself, or even just say what you firmly believe.
You want to be a pastor and reach a million people like Steven Furtick does. Or you want to lead worship for thousands of people like Hillsong does. Or maybe you want to make music and have millions of people hear it and love it.
Whatever it is you want to do, you have a desire inside of you that shouts "I want the world to see me!"
The question is, what are you going to do about that voice?Read More
The world has an opinion. Actually, the world has millions of opinions. How do you know who's opinion to take and who's to leave? Who do you listen to? Who has the most powerful influence in your life?Read More
I do not believe for one second that the heart of God is for us to be constantly busy. I don’t believe He’s sitting up there in Heaven going, “Great, you’re done with that task, now let me give you another one. And when you finish that one, I think you’ll be ready for something harder.”Read More
Do you ever find yourself questioning the possibility of your dreams coming true? On several occasions I’ve found myself sitting in my room thinking, “This is crazy.” I still sometimes question if I am really cut out for this and if this is what I’m supposed to do, or if I just have really wild aspirations and crazy dreams.Read More
I read this passage as I was sitting in pre-service prayer at my youth group. As soon as I walked in I had a million thoughts going through my mind.Read More
God wants us to come to Him and ask for things. He says over and over in the gospels specifically that when we ask, seek, and knock, the door will open.
But, I want to propose something different.Read More
First of all, let me start off by asking you this question.
Do you know you are anointed?
Your life is so precious and you have been set apart since the beginning of creation to fulfill a promise and a destiny that only you can fulfill. You're that special.Read More
Around two years ago, my mom and a few youth leaders told me that I should write a book. I kinda shrugged it off and went, "Okay, thanks." But the more I tried to not think about it, the more I couldn't stop thinking about it.Read More
A couple weekends ago I went up to Divide, CO with my church family for a youth retreat. Two words.
JESUS & FAMILY.
I had so much clarity when I was up there. Everything was so clear and I could see Jesus in a new way. I could feel His Presence, new and different every morning.Read More
Last weekend my church held a conference and it was purely incredible in every way. Completely life changing for me. One of the many life changing things God did was He gave me space to rest in His arms. Gave me space to breathe and come back to His reality so He could do whatever He wanted to.Read More
I'd like to think of my personal quiet time with the Lord everyday as a planting of a seed.
I will reap what I sow.
The question I asked myself and I want you to ask yourself is this: "What am I sowing?"Read More
