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

This woman knows the way to my heart oh so well. She covers it with love and care, while never shying from any need to challenge or push me towards God and growth.
I am incredibly thankful to God for Emilie.

Well, what a week it’s been dear Aussies and night-owls.

As the weekend approaches, I am left reeling in the wake of several small realisations, and the undeniable sense that whether my emotional state is in a condition that is for better or worse;

God is such a BOSS.

I know it’s become cliché to say this without sounding insincere, but -

Believe me when I say that, hand on heart, I really do feel grateful and blessed to have people on here that give my thoughts and ramblings a moment’s notice.

I mean, for the number of you that are subscribed to me (I dislike the term ‘followers’), I have never heard from more than maybe 30 or 40 of you, but I am still so grateful that you’re all here. You could be doing far more important things, like writing a novel, crime-fighting with your underpants outside your jeans or developing a sustainable and regenerating source of energy for the entire planet…but you still spare time to see what my little world is up to.

It beggars belief but leaves me feeling a very humble and warm chap indeed, so please; if there is anything I can do for you, be it prayer or otherwise, let me know. I’ll swim the Atlantic just to give you a piggyback to your favourite ice cream parlour if you so desire (I presume I get one too, right?)

Thank You Father for my Father.

On this Father’s Day I want to honour and give due praise to a man who has taught me so much over the years:

The importance of being able to laugh at yourself, of having time for others and a willingness to help wherever possible. The necessity of loving who you are and sticking to what you believe, not to mention an incomprehensibly vast wealth of “Dad jokes”…

Lastly, and perhaps most importantly, the lesson that nickname-ing your son ‘Spud’ and, when questioned, telling him it’s because he’s got “a head like a potato” is a sign of true love that is widely misunderstood…particularly by the child in question!

I love you, Dad.

My class of children have had an important and decisive week of tests this week, so I have been sure to hold them up in prayer.

Today is their last exam, and the child I have been reading/scribing has done so well considering his natural ability and progress throughout the year.

It’s a wonderful feeling, knowing that God has given me the opportunity to sow into that boy’s life at such a crucial time.

Thankyou Lord for bringing out the best in him this week…now let’s BOSS this final day of tests - Amen!!

:D

Reminder to self.

You held my past,

You hold my future,

and thank the stars You hold my present, because otherwise i’d be mad about the fact that I’m feeling like i’ve been hit by a freight train.

I would just like to say that I am humbled by how many of you have been generous enough to offer me help with my photo frame project - hopefully this will be the start of something ongoing and much bigger!

As for the rest of you; it’s not too late to get involved! Read the post and let me know!

I believe that’s my bed I hear calling!

Thankyou to the Anon who briefly took the time to message me - I love conversations with you folks, but unfortunately, much like a solar eclipse, they rarely happen.

However, at least a solar eclipse can be explained.

Goodnight!

How’s your Friday? Good?

I hope so…after all, this day Jesus gave us the gift of life as he took our punishment upon himself.

So…how’s your Friday?

I am sorry to have to tell you -

But I am resigning from this year’s Nanowrimo project.

It kills me to have to do it when I was almost halfway to 50k, but I simply don’t have the time to write or mentally devote as much as I want to.

Some of the obstacles are exciting ones, some not so, but it’s my only option - I will no doubt kick myself repeatedly for doing so in the coming weeks.

I just wanted to thank you all, oldest and newest friends alike for the support, feedback and encouragement you gave me as I attempted such a huge task, even if I did not succeed. It will not be forgotten, I can assure you.

A little dramatic and extreme for what is essentially a simple piece of news about an amateur story being canned?

Perhaps, but if that’s your view then the chances are you’ve absolutely no clue as to what writing means to me.

For having a Father who:

Loves me and beckons me to His arms,

no matter how messed up I find myself to be,

and inconsequential of how seemingly far from all i’ve known I have become…

I will always be humbled and grateful.

Your grace and mercy motivate me in all I do, Lord.

You remind me I am never out of Your grasp.
