So Long, I'm Gone...

The gate is wide, the road is paved in moderation. The crowd is kind and quick to pull you in. Welcome to the middle ground. It's safe and sound and until now it's where I've been. Cause it's been fear that ties me down to everything. But it's been love, YOUR LOVE that cuts the strings.


So long status quo, I think I just let go. You make me want
to be brave. I wanna be brave. The way it always was, is no longer good enough. You make me want to be brave. Brave…


I am small, And I speak when I'm spoken to. But I am willing to risk it all. I say Your name, just your name and I'm ready to jump, even ready to fall... Why did I take this vow of compromise? Why did I try to keep it all inside?

So long status quo
, I think I just let go. You make me want to be brave. I wanna be brave. The way it always was, is no longer good enough. You make me want to be brave. Brave…

I've never known a fire that didn't begin with a flame. Every storm will start with just a drop of rain. But, if you believe in me. That changes everything. So long, I'm gone…

So long status quo, I think I just let go. You make me want to be brave. I wanna be brave. The way it always was, is no longer good enough. You make me want to be brave. Brave…

This says absolutely everything... the pictures are random, but they fit perfectly. So long status quo, i think i just let go...

What is your status quo?
What is it that the strings of fear bind you to?
What if someone cut them, and you were free?

I ride on your prayers...

not much of a loco gato kinda man...

So yesterday I had my first experience in authentic Hawaii food... and it was quite the experience. This wonderful and strange creation consist of two hamburger patties, two over-easy eggs, smothered in brown gravy and over white rice. They call this style of "food" "Loco" which is spanish for "crazy" and i think it might be an adequate description. Oh the irony...

here is a wonderful visual description for you.

this next pic is a cat who lives here at the BSU... i HATE him... i've actually thrown him across the room a few times.

well... were up to day 3 here in Hilo... and ill be honest, it's been quite the adventure! I "moved" into a house with 4 other guys today... i'm stayin in the lower level with 2 other guys. i have a twin mattress on the floor... and its awesome, everything i need... and im even thinkin it's gonna work out better than the two foot too short couch i've been on since i got here... haha

but things are going well... God has definitely proven himself faithful!
got a few pics for you to enjoy, feel free to comment and let me know you are still there...

**this is Anavah (john's (my boss who is 25) daughter) playing in my rainbows, more like skiing for her**

**yesterday we got to go "exploring"... it was awesome, here im standing on lava (cooled) in the ocean watching waves crash against it and splash 40 feet in the air, then one splashed against my lava and i got soaked... here i was contimplating the passage in Job 38, read that and it will give you a better perspective on this pic**

** les and i had a short lay-over in maui so jeff and hodge came and saw us for a bit, they were awesome and seem to be really in their "element", and honestly jeff martin is too much for this island! **

**yeah, and the rumors are true... this milk is $8, given it's at our lovely 711 thats right down the road, but still thats almost 3 times the price of a gallon of gas... last night les and i went there and bought a $10 bowl of cereal for this morning... haha, im gonna go broke buying food in this town...**

**this is our lovely BSU (BCM) here in Hilo... it's really cool, a lot of student come and hang out here all day inbetween all their classes...**

** these lovely individuals are amazing! they came to send us off... for that i will be forever greatful! **

and thats all for now, i gotta go find a postoffice to send some papers in so i can get paid... so i can buy more food.... haha

you guys are in my prayers and i hope we're in your's

So... Im here... I've been on 4 planes today and 5 different flights, in the air for 14 hours, in 5 different airports and now im finally resting on a couch in the BCM that's about 2 feet too short...

At the moment i can barely concentrate to type these words, so if they are a little nonsensical, nevermind... but i wanted to write and say that i got here.

All is well at the moment. Les and I are both a little overwhelmed by everything. After all, it has been an emotionally traumatic day! But, God is faithful!

It's times like this when I find awesome peace in the fact that this life is not about me. I took a short glance at the sunrise as Tracie was taking me to the airport this morning and He settled my heart with that thought.

I love you guys and i covet your prayers!
All In...
