VerseD: Psalm 126:5

VerseD: 2 Corinthians 4:7-9

But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, so that the surpassing greatness of the power will be of God and not from ourselves; we are afflicted in every way, but not crushed; perplexed, but not despairing; persecuted, but not forsaken; struck down, but not destroyed;
2 CORINTHIANS 4:7‭-‬9, NASB

God has chosen to dwell in us by the Holy Spirit. The world hates God, but we know He ultimately wins. Do not fear the world.

VerseD: Psalm 91:1

He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High

Will abide in the shadow of the Almighty.

VerseD: 1 Corinthians 13:13

So now faith, hope, and love abide, these three; but the greatest of these is love.

Choose love. Always.

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
