The Spirit and Obedience | The Ordinary

Want to be encouraged by how God is moving in some college students’ lives?  Read the excerpt below, and then follow the link:

Im not making this Spirit junk up, and I didn’t do anything but surrender and admit that Im worthless and somehow yearn to be obedient. But I promise, I’ve never believed that God can move more than I have right now. And I really believe that with a little obedience and a lot of prayer our generation can be the one that God uses to restore this country. It must be unless we want to live in a post-Christian society. The harvest is plentiful but the workers are few. Pray for workers, pray that the workers would be obedient.

Although I was raised in the church and had a knowledge of God, I didn’t embrace Jesus until I heard gospel preached and lived out by some Young Life leaders. God has proven faithful and good to me since that day, even in great suffering and loss. I have learned to treasure Romans 8:28 as a wellspring of hope and truth.

God has blessed me with an amazing wife (Olivia), three sons (Micah, Hudson and Owen) and a daughter (Emmaline). Growing up in the northwest, the thought never crossed my mind that I would have four children who are native Texans. Despite landing in the south, I still watch Notre Dame games with my children every Saturday in hopes they will land at my alma mater.
