VerseD: 1 Corinthians 13:13

So now faith, hope, and love abide, these three; but the greatest of these is love.
1 Corinthians 13:13, ESV

Hope springs from faith.

Faith springs from love.

Love springs from dedication and choice.

Choose love. Always.

VerseD: 2 Peter 3:9

The Lord is not slow about His promise, as some count slowness, but is patient toward you, not wishing for any to perish but for all to come to repentance.
2 Peter 3:9, NASB

Jesus will return, on His timetable. It is okay to long for His return, but remember that He is waiting for the full number of those who believe.

Happy New Year 2019!

2018, amiright?

Another full year has come and gone.

My wife and I moved from ever sunny, ever hot Phoenix to a cooler (and currently snowier!) climate.

There were many new Adventures. Some are still growing.

I started a youth group for a small local church. I am getting ready to (hopefully sooner than later, at this point) to launch a mobile coffee cart! (Look for “Bean Adventurer Coffee”!) I am writing A LOT! (Though this blog took a small hit. But …)

Jesse finally started contributing here, though YouTube has not received an update this year. Moving and lacking access to editing software hurt that. But hopefully more is coming soon!

In all things, God is good. All the time.

May you receive an abundance of bunches of blessings this year. And though life may take some effort to trudge through, fall on the promises of God, this year and always.

The Lord bless you and keep you; the Lord make his face to shine upon you and be gracious to you; the Lord lift up his countenance upon you and give you peace.

Numbers 6:24‭-‬26 ESV

In His Love,

Daniel

VerseD: Zechariah 8:3

This is what the Lord says: “I will return to Zion and dwell in Jerusalem. Then Jerusalem will be called the Faithful City, and the mountain of the Lord Almighty will be called the Holy Mountain.”
Zechariah 8:3, NIV

The Lord has come, through the incarnation of Christ, and He shall return once more to finally completely usher in His eternal Kingdom.

VerseD: Romans 8:37

No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us.
Romans 8:37 ESV

Do not be deceived.

We are not promised victory in all of our endeavors. We are promised victory over sin, sadness, and unforgiveness and fear as we encounter temptation, troubles, and persecution.

VerseD: Psalm 3:3

But you, O Lord , are a shield about me, my glory, and the lifter of my head.
Psalm 3:3, ESV

Our Lord is our ultimate protector and source of all joy and hope. Without Him, we have nothing and amount to nothing.

Only when we enter eternity do we fully realize the Prize He is for us and how He has saved us.

VerseD: Hebrews 9:28

so Christ, having been offered once to bear the sins of many, will appear a second time, not to deal with sin but to save those who are eagerly waiting for him.
Hebrews 9:28, ESV

The next time Christ comes, we shall remain with Him forever.

It will not be so nice for everyone else.
