What Happens When Our Gifts Are Unappreciated?

by Christine Sine I was reading through this old post today and felt that it flowed very well from yesterday’s post so decided to reblog it. Enjoy! Meanwhile, Jesus was in Bethany at the home of Simon, a man who had previously had leprosy. While he was eating, a woman came in with a beautiful alabaster […]

The Truth About The World Race

Eleven counties in eleven months, sharing Christ's love and serving people. Sounds amazing right?! Well, the world race is amazing. I've experienced more spiritual growth than I've ever have and it's only been 3 months. I've learned the true definition of community. I've experienced freedom by being vulnerable and honest with those around me. I've seen some cool places and met some amazing people, but the world race isn't always as awesome as those Instagram/Facebook pics you see. Honestly, it

India is ENDia-ing hahaha

These are some of the words I’ve written in my journal the past few weeks or so. It is a little of what God is teaching me, along with what I want to learn. It has some prayers and some realizations. It has gratitude hidden behind teary eyes. I hope something speaks to you and I hope today is a good day for you.   Hebrews 2:14-18 “ Since the children have flesh and blood, he too shared in their humanity so that by his death he might destroy him who holds the power of death &n

Fighting demons

Each month on the Race we partner with a ministry host that is permanently stationed in the country that we are visiting. Our goal is to catch the vision that the hosts have for their ministry. We come alongside them and do everything we can to help them succeed in their endeavours. Our goals are to see their goals accomplished. Our mission is to do the work that they see is needed for their ministry to thrive. Our dreams are to see their dreams come true. So in February, when we settled in for

Fight For Perspective

“If you dig in and fight the change you’re facing, it will indeed smash you to bits. It will hold you under water, drag you across the rough sand, scare and confuse you.” -Shauna Niequist This season of my life is characterized and defined by change. It’s challenging, uncomfortable, and as soon as I get a foothold and I understand how to use the “shower”, I leave and I lose my footing. The world race is hard and real life is pretty much the exact same way. B

The Year 2009

It’s 2009. I wake up at 4AM in a sweat. Though the cement ground is uncomfortable, I welcome the coldness it holds. I lay there pondering for a few moments where I am. I readjust my body on my sleeping pad as quietly as I can so as to not wake my teammates. Glancing to my right, I see two tents closed and hear a soft snoring. I am reminded how grateful I am for them, to know I am not in this alone. I am not alone in being away from everything that has been my comfort for 23 years. Over th

The Waiting Game

On January 19th, I got accepted into the World Race. At first, the money wasn't an issue for me. I didn't think twice about it or bat an eye. Honestly, my naive self expected God to mail me a check for $15,000 and I'd be all set to go. I mean this is what God wanted for me, why wouldn't he make fundraising easy? Well, this perspective that I had changed quickly. I began to realize that I could not just sit stagnant and expect the money to start coming, cause it doesn't always happen like that.

A Day in the Life

“Abby, turn your alarm off!!” I groggily reach for my phone and actually swipe it open this time to turn the alarm off instead of hitting snooze for the 7th time… It’s 6 am.My teammates I’m rooming with (2 of the 3 others..) have usually been awake for at least 30 minutes either working out or spending their time with J3sus for the morning. I’ve been REALLY trying to wake up and set the framework of my day by spending time with then L0rd before anything else
