How does God desire us to react to the fear that surrounds us daily? The Lord commands us to seek shelter in God, the church, and the Kingdom of Heaven. We live in an age that is fixated upon war, pestilence, and disease. All of these things want to divide and tear us apart. Everything seeks to fill us with fear and take our focus off the good, off the light, and onto the negative and the darkness. It is tempting to focus on the bad, but God calls out to us where we are and leads us to the light.
Lord, Save Me Amid Fear

I am often asked what describes you, which is a hard answer because sometimes I move in a thousand different directions. Some call me an engineer, others call me pastor, a few call me captain, some call me friend, others call me dad, and one calls me sweetheart. All of these things are descriptors and are accurate, but they don't fully capture me. My favorite place is in the mountains, enjoying the beauty of nature and God's creation, running and hiking around with my family and friends, and taking photos to cement the memories. However, the people that know me the best know that my favorite thing to do is come up with crazy adventures that push the limits of what our minds and bodies can do. My faith in God is important to me and drives me to look at creation the way I do. Because of my faith, I look at these adventures and running races from Half Marathons all the way to 50-mile races, as well as several Obstacle Course Races, as an opportunity to push the body God gave me as an act of worship. Hopefully, someday soon, I look toward running longer races and bigger adventures. My hope is that humanity can understand that the wild is a gift, and we need to care for it and quit destroying it by the way we live. View more posts
