I was reminded of this picture this morning... This is a time of Hope Station I do not personally remember, but looking at things like this cause me to praise God for where Hope Station is now!

But as I thanked God, this thought came in my mind, "why did you have to see this to thank me?"

We as Christians are always quick to praise God in these big moments of life, but why do we struggle to remember Him when things are going smo...

January of last year, I sat on the ridge of Palo Duro Canyon with a journal in hand preparing for a word from God about what He wanted me to accomplish this year. I was eager to move into the next season of life that I felt God was calling me to, and waiting for God to tell me where to go. As the sun set and the scenery became more and more beautiful only one word rang out from the Lord... "wait"... "But God I want to do amazi...

Romans 5:3-5 says, "Not only that, but we rejoice in our sufferings, knowing that suffering produces endurance, and endurance produces character, and character produces HOPE, and HOPE does not put us to shame, because God's love has been poured into our hearts through the Holy Spirit who has been given to us." 

Many times we look at people suffering and question God... We look into situations with our human eyes and only see su...

Why Why WHY does God allow us to hurt? Why does he allow us pain? Why does God allow some of  us pain without a known source or an answer? I struggle with emotional pain. I do not know where it comes from. I live with a dark cloud over my mind and soul many days. I feel it in my head. I feel it in my body. The source? I don’t know the source. But I do know my amazing God is NOT the source. I do know that this is not the cause...

There was a young man in our little town full of joy and shining brightly for Jesus. He was unlike any other young man I had ever seen. I never had the privilege of meeting Luke, but his willingness to follow Christ regardless of circumstance will be passed down in stories for many years. 

Doctors diagnosed Luke with Acute Myeloid Leukemia at the age of 10. Not long into the treatment, they told him nothing more could be d...

Earlier this year, my wife Brandy and I came into Hope Station homeless and thirty-eight weeks pregnant.  We knew from the beginning of our relationship that we were brought together for a purpose- our situation was in direct response for our desire to do God’s will for our lives.  It was the most difficult time either one of us had experienced and yet we were supernaturally joyful, “beyond all understanding”.  All the signs p...
