“Your presence is an open door, so come now Lord, like never before.” ••• This line from @elevationworship new song has been resonating in my heart over the last week. How beautiful is it that we can spend time with God, our Father, whenever we want. We have this Holy Spirit instilled in us that guides us to blessing and gives us assurance in everything we do. I’m so thankful we serve a God of faith and not law. Let’s be honest....who else struggles with feeling like they have to get their crap together before coming to the Lord, before asking for things, before feeling “worthy” of receiving His blessing? 🙋🏽‍♂️(I know I do!) BUT GUESS WHAT?! There are no special rituals. We don’t have to clean up our life before going to Him. He’s our Father—Always wanting the best, always having an open-door policy, and always just wanting us to turn to him in all situations. Like he says in 2 Corinthians 12:9 “My grace is enough for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Let’s grasp that this week! I sure know I need that reminder. A reminder that in my weakness, He is strong. In my insecurities, He has confidence, and because of that I HAVE confidence. He never withholds from his children and because of that we get an undeserving love and never-ending grace that keeps me going on even my worst days! 🙌🏽 #motivationmonday #thegospelisforeveryone at The Coffee Peddlar

Jesus. He’s the man I model my life after. People ask me where I get my joy. People ask me how I get to do the things I do. I owe it all to Jesus, God, the Holy Spirit. Through Jesus I have an example. Through God I have assurance. Through the Holy Spirit I have guidance. The best part in serving the Lord is that I have a purpose. I live knowing THERE IS MORE. There is more than just what meets the eye on this Earth! There is the Creator, the Author, the Almighty God who has made and chosen you for a divine time and purpose. I leave New York not just feeling inspired but stirred up—stirred up to reach a city and nation that is hurting, broken, and reaching out to all the wrong outlets to fill a void that only God can fill. A void that when filled empowers, heals, and restores! Thank you God for choosing me as your son and blessing me beyond understanding. #JESUS #hillsongconf at Barclays Center

Today I’m thankful for the mundane. Instead of being stressed about paying gas, I’m thankful I have a car to fill with gas. Instead of being stressed about work, I’m thankful I have a job that keeps me busy. Instead of complaining about having no sleep, I’m thankful I have a bed where I can rest. Instead of getting annoyed with people, family, or friends, I’m thankful I have people, family, and friends that love me, support me, know my intricacies, and bring me life. Instead of comparing my life to literally everyone else’s and where they are, I am THANKFUL for the unique and blessed life God has given me! • Take time today to just step back and see the bigger picture, friends. Keep pushing through what seems mundane, and remember God has the best for you! I’m learning to quit complaining, wanting, and waiting. START living in the moment, GO after those dreams, and BE intentional with what you have and where you’re going! It’s in these moments of pure contentment where I have found AND I KNOW you’ll find life and hear God clearer than ever. • “Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up.” ‭‭-Galatians‬ ‭6:9‬ • “Be cheerful no matter what; pray all the time; thank God no matter what happens. This is the way God wants you who belong to Christ Jesus to live.” - ‭‭1 Thessalonians‬ ‭5:16-18‬ ‭MSG‬‬ • #lifeismoments #lifeispeople #content

This is Matt and Ellayna. I’m not joking when I say I laugh at 99% of the things they say. Thankful for friends like them who give life, speak truth, live boldly, and empower others. #randomappreciationpost at Elevate Church

I’m so blessed and honored to have worked alongside an amazing creative team to help direct, market, and produce Singin’ In The Rain JR. as Franklin County Children Theatre’s inaugural show. • Growing up, I was a part of the musicals at Mt. Carmel school that became a legacy that lasted for 20 years but will live on forever. These plays instilled so much into me as a public speaker and just as a person. They helped shape me into who I am today thanks to Mary Lou Anderson, Toni Miles, Ron Galyen, and Missy Pepper. So it has been so fun to come back and give back to something that poured so much into me. • When Savannah Hofer mentioned to me that they were starting this county-wide theatre, they didn’t realize how excited or dedicated I would be to help and watch it succeed. Through the 2-3 month season, I watched these kids become their characters, grow as we coached them in their weaknesses, and rise to every challenge we threw at them! It was so fun getting to know them personally too. I am so excited for the future of this theatre as it draws the children of Franklin County together to work together for each show, be challenged personally, and accomplish more than they ever thought they could! • #franklincountychildrenstheatre #FCCT #children #theatre #singinintherain at Franklin County, Indiana

Oh my gosh. My heart is exploding from this picture from my trip to @wawezamovement orphanage. These 3 boys stuck by me almost the entire time. I watched as they came out of their shells and let me into their worlds. They carried a light with them, with their smiles, with their laughs. I miss them so much. Thank you @rachelflong for capturing such a real moment. ❤️ #wawezamovement #orphanage #happiestplaceonearth #notDisney at Kakamega

Drew, my man. About 2 and a half years ago I walked through Elevate Church’s doors having no idea what to expect. Previously I had been asking God to just bring me more brothers to do life with and keep me accountable. Following service, this guy right here walks up to me, introduces himself, and we began to realize we have a lot in common: same year of college and both going to college for business in Cincy. It took a few hangouts and then I started to realize that this guy right here was gonna be a lifer. Drew is a dreamer, a go-getter, an achiever, and a comedian (let’s be honest). He’s constantly being real with me, giving me advice, cheering me on, and making me laugh until I cry. I seriously laugh at him over the stupidest stuff, but that’s what I love about him. He is a gentleman and a scholar. Everything he does is done in excellence and humbly for the kingdom. From his job to his school to his relationships, he loves people no matter what. Drew, you truly inspire me to be a better man and a better friend. I appreciate all the talks we’ve had, dreams we’ve dreamt, and times we‘ve had over the last 2.5 years. It feels like I have known you for a lifetime. From hangouts at Nippert, to Roh’s before class, bunkin’ in Kenya to hiking up to the Hollywood sign in LA, I think we have truly done it all. I’m excited for ya man, and I keep watching as you stay obedient to the Lord how he keeps honoring you back and moving you to higher places. Thanks for being you 100% of the time, unashamedly. Happy birthday, broskie! You deserve more than today to be celebrated! #heyfolksitspeckerdave #heyfaithhowsyourfaith #buyyourticketyet #topscholar #atthemosteliteschool #inthecountry #heyitsfrank #monicalewinsky #kenyurr #heyfolkshowyalldoon #grundycountyauction #futurebusinessleaders #justkiddinloveyouguys #aypauly #hbddrewseph

Wow wow wow. What a weekend. I sit here full tonight with joy, laughter, and thankfulness for the life I have been given. I live in a country where I can freely be who I am called to be and worship God freely because of the sacrifices of others who have fought and fight for our country. My faith has been the sole reason I have a solid group of friends I basically call family. I spent this weekend with some of my favorite people. We had bonfires, ate food, talked about Jesus, went kayaking, grilled out, watched some basketball, soaked up the sun, and honestly just joked around like our dumb selves until no one remembered how the joke started. It’s weekends like this I’m reminded of how much I love my friends and love where I’m from. #memorialdayweekend at Cedar Grove, Indiana
