God does not call the qualified, He qualifies the called!

Unashamedly in love with my Lord and Saviour.
Living life by loving others.

In a committed and wonderful long distance relationship with an inspiring California woman where our love of God and each other spans the 5,000 miles between us. :)


Passions and things that make this man include:
ministering to the young hearts of the world,
watching films,
submerging myself in the wonder of music both through listening and composition,
photography,
tattoos,
acting and theatre,
coffee,
adventures,
wildlife,
space and astronomy,
writing in many forms,
and exploring the beauty of the world around us.

If by this point you think we're on the verge of becoming new friends, feel free to inform me of this rather wonderful realisation...

Ask anything or drop in a prayer request too! I'd love to pray with/for you!
Be blessed. :D

Last night was a Netflix ‘n’ noodles kind of night.
They were good times.

Could you pray for some wisdom and mindfulness for me? I'm currently unemployed and applying for jobs in my hometown, but there is a man I love dearly who lives 1,100mi away who I would love to closer to. If I get a job here, I'm here for the school year, but since I don't have a job yet, I could apply to jobs and move there too?? I'm just very nervous to make that huge move if it's not right.

Wow! Well I know a little something about distance. Keep it up before God before you make decisions, my friend - sometimes God shows us the best route, and sometimes He gives us the clarity of mind to make a choice. Upside is, His love and provision never fail if He is kept firmly at the centre! If you’re willing to come off Anon, I would love to hear more about this!

Praying for you! :)

Hello, I was wondering if you could pray for me. I used to spend a lot of time in prayer with Jesus but ever since this semester started I have been struggling to manage my time efficiently.

Of course, my friend - spending time with God is important, and He knows our lives are crazy busy sometimes. The desire to spend time with Him in even the smallest quantities can increase your determination to work your day around God rather than God around your day, and you’d be amazed where you find pockets of time - and the best thing is that He loves us unconditionally, so those days you don’t quite feel like you make the grade? He isn’t looking at it like that. The widow in Luke 21 gave all she could, and no matter how little, when we do the same with a willing heart, He loves every moment of it.

Hey, dearest ones and faraway friends…

Let’s talk? How can I be praying for you today? I’m also considering spending some time writing, so challenges are welcome!

Be blessed, you stinkingly lovely folks.

Say a prayer for my flight if you get a moment!

See you in a few weeks, Britain; try not to do anything too silly in my absence! 

Next stop LA; here I come, Em!

Is question time over? Even if it is; just found out my ex is dating someone new... Because he's in a FB relationship with her. We were dating for 6 months and he refused to change his FB status while we were a couple. I was almost over him and now I'm torn to shreds again :/

My friend, the first thing I want to say is that you are awesome, so let’s get that straight first shall we?

I cannot speak for his motives in being reluctant to change his relationship status, only presume - whatever the potential reason that crops to mind, it points to one conclusion; that the question of ‘good enough’ most certainly lies with him and not yourself.

The hard part? Be the bigger person, swallow that lump in your throat and if you get the chance, wish him/them well. It’s difficult and often done through gritted teeth, but you know something? You’re a great deal better than the sadness this is causing you, and the hurt is temporary - never seems it at first, but nobody ever thought an ant to look tiny under a microscope…my point being, don’t focus on it - surround yourself with people you love to see, things you love to do, and hold fascinating conversations that don’t mask the pain so much as help heal it.
I don’t know if you believe in a God at all, but I would like to pray for/with you if you’d like.

You’re going to be okay.
Your heart will blossom.
You are loved.

Be blessed with peace, Anon.

There is an infatuation with love in this generation. It’s rather ironic, actually. We take this whole idea of a relationship between a man and a woman, and put it on a pedestal. That is going to be the most desirable thing for any given man or woman of our society today. Are you single? There must be something wrong with you. Are you in a relationship? Well, your life must be perfect.

No. I reject this idea. There is something missing. We’ve been robbed of real love, the relationships we are chasing after are chalked full of lust. What’s more is, they’re not study relationships. We don’t get in relationships to get married anymore, we use them as crutches. When one crutch gets warn out, instead of fighting, we recycle it and buy a new one. This is the kind of relationship on display at any given moment. The divorce rate is higher than ever. People are not having babies. Except, of course, by accident. But they’re so easy to get rid of, does it even count?

I’m fed up to my nose with all of this. We have singlehandedly forgotten everything that happened at the cross. Where are the grooms whom will love their brides as Christ loved His? Where are the brides who do not just chase after any old thing, but intentionally work to stay focussed on Christ, instead of worrying about when some romantic knight will show up?

Get those disney movies out of your head. Life is not a fairytale. Life is dying to yourself, in every sense. Even in your relationship, there will be compromise. There will be arguments and fights. You have to choose between recycling your relationships, or identifying with Jesus and the church. This is a detrimental choice. Because if you choose to replicate the relationship Jesus has with His church, all relationship idolatry, all false ideas, all hope to be like your favorite celebrity couple is gone. It’s time to wake up to reality; marriage with Christ in the middle is going to be more difficult, more intense, and so much more loving, and…. In short, better than any fairytale ever could be.
