There are so many times I’ve been in a pit–sometimes of my own doing and sometimes through no fault of my own. His love didn’t and wouldn’t leave me there. He reached for me and pulled me up.
You will pull me out of the net which they have secretly laid for me,
For You are my strength. –Psalm 31:4
I’m a little late to appreciating this song from Jesus Culture, but a few months ago, I really listened to the lyrics and it’s kind of become an anthem to me. God has done what I could never do through His love. He crossed the lines and scaled the heights. He combed the depths and brought me out. That’s what this song is about. Besides all that, He won’t stop working every single thing to my good.
You stay the same through the ages
Your love never changes
There may be pain in the night
But joy comes in the morning
And when the oceans rage
I don’t have to be afraid
Because I know that You love me
And Your love never fails
What song or quote captures God’s love in a special way for you? What’s an experience you’ve had with it?

I believe in the value of others in this journey of life and faith, and I want to connect with other people, connect others in real ways, and connect everyone I come across to Him. I have a beautiful wife, Andrea, and four wonderful children (and we are also a foster family). I'm the lead pastor of Breakthrough Church in Juneau, AK where we get the opportunity to practice authentic community and live for a vision bigger than ourselves. I also run a website development company called Spark2Flame where I help others reach their full potential online.
