True friendship is rare - it takes work, lots of it. But in the end, if you surround yourself with friends that build you up, motivate you to grow, and teach you how to see things differently, it is worth every moment. Here's to my friends, the ones that have stuck it out, the ones who have been with me for the long haul, and the ones that are only just getting to know me. [[go to blog to read the full post]]
First up I want to apologize to my friends. I am only just remembering who I am, and it's because of my friends that I can always find my way back home. You see, when we leave our friends and try something new we always leave...

United States of America. E Pluribus Unum. One nation.

Take a moment and stop everything. Don't open Facebook, resist the impulse to check your Twitter feed, and just - stop.

When is the last time you invited your neighbor over for dinner? When was the last time you asked your co-worker how their family is doing? When was the last time you showed that you care?

These are the people my heart breaks for. But they are also the people I am scared to reach. You see, I don't have all the answers and I'm not perfect myself, and I'm scared these people are going to see that. I'm scared one of them is going to ask me a question and I won't know the answer so then they will reject my God. And I take that personally rather than remembering that my God can move mountains; yet here I am, scared he can't change someone's heart.

Everyone today wants to change America. You look around and all you see is division. And what was the quote we used to say, "one nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all"?

Fear is binding. It clouds your thinking, stunts your growth, and keeps you from doing what you want to do.

I was talking with a friend of mine from an amazing camp (Lake Lundgren) and we got to talking about missions and evangelizing. Turns out she has a mission for the Saharawi people and I have a mission for college kids going to parties. Here's the thing we realized: the church is stuck and fear has crippled us.

I think it's fair to say that we hate not knowing things. We always want to figure out why something works the way it does and we always want to know what the future holds. 

But that's thing thing: there are things we will never know and there are things that don't need an scientific explanation. Sometimes things just are.

The other day I was offended because someone discredited me because I was... only 20. "Am I not more mature than that? Does she not understand the situations I have gone through, the things I have learned from?" The truth is she wasn't wrong. I am not only 20. I am a engineer, a problem solver, a friend to some, a brother to others, I am a light in the dark, I am a planner, I am only human; but I serve a God who is everything and to him I owe my everything.

The world is a classroom and time is the teacher. Keep your eyes open, mouth closed, and listen. You can start thinking about your reply when they are talking or you can digest the information, welcome the opportunity to prove yourself.

Be patient, listen, ask yourself why they think like that. You do not have to take offence to people discrediting you, welcome the challenge. Create a new friendship in the process. Do better because I know you are better. Ask yourself why you think like that. Challenge yourself with your current line of thinking. What are other solutions you can apply?

At the end of the day, does it really matter? No, you know that too. If your can complete the task, just show how you can do it. How can you help them understand that you can complete the task at hand?

It's the little things that matter most.

My hands are sore, my throat feels the burn of mucus - but it's the little things that matter most.

I spent time with my bible study and with friends - but it's the little things that matter most.

"I try to help" is the voice I whisper to myself - because when it's the little things that matter most, live is simpler. And we like simple, because simple isn't messy.
