xjustinstagramx "Let me make a little confession: I don’t always feel like being nice to people. I hate to admit it! Sometimes I want to be cranky. Sometimes I just want to say, “Leave me alone!” I don’t always feel like being kind. I don’t always feel like being generous. I don’t always feel like giving people hope. I don’t always feel like preaching.

But I don’t happen to live by my feelings. I happen to live by faith. Sometimes I plant when I’m tired. Sometimes I plant when I’m distracted. Sometimes I plant when I’m stressed out. Sometimes I plant when I’m in deep, deep grief. And I move ahead in faith in spite of my feelings, expecting God to act.

Psalm 126:5-6 // “Those who plant in tears will harvest with shouts of joy. They weep as they go to plant their seed, but they sing as they return with the harvest.” (NLT, second edition).
-
Sometimes God will call you to make a sacrifice — through your money, yes, but also through your time, talent, and maybe even your life. You may feel like saying, “I don’t feel like it.” But if you do, you will miss the blessing that God wants to do by using you.

Plant by faith, not by your feelings." - #RickWarren

xjustinstagramx Finally generated my #2015BestNine! How fitting that the center photo kicked the year off.
-
Looking back at these photos, this year's triumphs and letdowns pale in comparison to the moments I've gotten shared with the ones I love, whether they are pictured here or not.
-
I especially am so thankful for sharing this past year with the lovely woman who showed up in 8 out of 9 of the photos. #WCE My oh my, what a tremendous blessing she has truly been to me. So grateful to share life with such a beautiful, godly soul who makes enjoying life so much sweeter. May God continue to write our love story as we enter another year together.

Father, whatever 2016 may hold, into Your hands I commit my plans and the people dearest to me for I know you can do far more abundantly with them than I could ever ask or imagine. // EPH III:XX

xjustinstagramx Happy 21st Birthday S/O to my brother from another mother, but same Heavenly Father, @el_jv ! I love this guy so much! It's been a huge blessing witnessing him grow in the Lord these past years that I've known him as he continually strives to know Christ and make Him known. I am so proud of the man God has created and is continuing to create him to be as I have been blessed by his servanthood and generous heart. There is never a dull moment with this guy, whether it's talking about goodness of our Lord, losing to him/letting him win at FIFA15, dabbing to Hillsong Young & Free, or when we randomly just roast each other.

Cheers to you Josue, a BT trainee that became a friend that became a best friend that became a true brother in Christ.

xjustinstagramx It was an honor to witness my friend, mentor, and brother in Christ, @klroyse , get baptized today! It was such a profound and beautiful moment as we, as friends and family, got to surround him as he expressed through this act of baptism the outward proclamation of his heart's inward manifestation. I love you so much brother! Thank you for continually being a prime example in my and @lexiraeallday 's life, along with @chelsroyse , as you both reflect Christ in everything you do. #MyPersonalBarnabas 3mon

xjustinstagramx Mark‬ ‭10:7-9‬ // Therefore a man shall leave his father and mother and hold fast to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh. So they are no longer two but one flesh. What therefore God has joined together, let not man separate.
-
Congratulations you two! What an understatement it would be if I said today was another special day. So much hard work and support went into today and it far exceeded what I expected. You two certainly deserved it all! We all witnessed a new chapter unfolding and all your friends and family, including myself, cannot wait to see what's in the next pages ahead for you two as God continues to write your story.
