I'm married to the beautiful Bridget and father to four fantastic kiddos. We plant churches and live in a fifth-wheel camper. I write and smoke a pipe whenever I get the chance. Currently camped in Austin, TX.
“…in everything give thanks; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.” – 1 Thessalonians 5:18
Ever try to “give thanks” in the midst of a crummy situation? It’s not easy. From my own experience, I can’t do it as long as I’m focused on the crummy situation. But, when I turn my focus on Christ, despite my situation, my spirit overflows with appreciation toward the Lord. Outside of Christ, I can’t give thanks in everything. In Christ, however, I can and I do.
