This week has been amazing to say the least. All I want to say is Jesus is so rad!

I can't even write down all the amazing things the Lord has done. All the doors that have been opened, new communities he is building around me, and seeing friends I haven't see in a long time. It was somewhat difficult to see the old friends. We ran into each other by accident. We were friends back before I came to Christ and hurt a couple of them pretty bad, just being stupid. I hope that the feelings that were hurt can heal with time. But it was great to share with them how God has changed my life for the better and I'm sober now. They were a little shocked ha. Surprised to hear I was going to church and actually involved there. I hope that we can start to hang out again, it would be a huge blessing. They are both really awesome people.

My last day of work is Saturday. The Lord put it on my heart to quit, so I did. Never felt better about anything in my life ha. I know it sounds crazy but Im stoked to not have a job! More time for Jesus. Also with going to school full time, that will lighten the load a little.

"And those who are Christ's have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires. If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit." Galatians 5:24-25


  1. Dude this is so great! Justin, just eating lunch with you on wednesday and then reading your post, I feel like it is so confirmed that you are absolutely lead by the Holy Spirit. God has gifted you to feel the slightest impulses of His Spirit's movement and he has rewarded you with that sensitivity. And then you just follow! like no-questions-asked follow!

    keep letting him lead and I KNOW you won't be far behind. love you man:)

  2. Praying for your firends right now...that they will have seen something different in you and known that it was true and real...that there will be healing.

  3. I truly believe that God's spirit will shine through you and your friends will see you for who it is that you are now. not who you used to be. hoping that this time with no job will be a time of refreshment, peace, and a chance to connect even deeper with the Father!! =)

  4. Thank you for sharing the verse. Praising God for such a good week in your life and praying that you will spend more time with those friends soon.

    Way to follow God in being okay with quitting your job. This would scare me to much. Way to not be fearful, but trusting in the Lord's faithfulness and provision.

  5. quitting with peace is SO awesome :) I did it in November. "bad economy" is nada with Jesus. :)
