Billy Graham


Yesterday was huge, the news that Billy Graham passed away really shook me. To be honest I don’t think I’ve ever heard a video of him speak, but I’ve heard stories about him all my life. The weight of what he did with his life hit me so hard I cried. What hit me most is the fact that we need to step up. 

We are all called to fearlessly make known the mystery of the gospel like he has - in whatever way that looks like. 

Brad and I had this amazing “Ferb I know what we’re gonna do today” moment (if you didn’t get that reference then I’m sad you never had Phineas and Ferb in your life). Something changed last night. We’d been meaning to hang our artwork for weeks, I finally bought the picture hooks yesterday and it was a huge moment. We hung the words “as for me and my house we will serve the Lord.” As happy and excited as I am, I don’t think we realise the gravity of what that means. 

Maybe someday we’ll look back and laugh about how naive we were as we hung it. 

But I’m excited to see where He takes us next. People often ask what I’m going to do after uni, I normally say “maybe marketing, hopefully photography” and I always hold back on my true answer out of fear of rejection. But here it is and I’m actually going to be honest from now on. I know exactly what I’m going to do after uni (and for the rest of it) and have for a long time; I’m going to do what He guides me to do. I have absolute peace in that. I have no idea what I’ll do, but at the same time I know exactly what I’ll do. 

Soli Deo Gloria - All the glory to God. “Pray for me, that whenever I open my mouth, words may be given me so that I will fearlessly make known the mystery of the gospel for which I am an ambassador in chains.

Pray that I may declare it fearlessly as I should” Eph 6:19-20
