About

I'm an ABC and this is where I vent and share my life stories. A little bit about myself is that I am an aspiring murse (male nurse), I play guitar, I love God, and although people see me as a goody 2 shoes I am above all...Human. So don't judge if I get angry or frustrated sometimes because Christians aren't perfect, only forgiven :) So I hope you guys enjoy my thoughts on life. K BYE. Oh yeah I also own the blog wtfoodge.com and I play ping pong.

Funny How God Is Using Me!

Roughly two years ago, I picked up a guitar for the first time. My intentions in learning guitar was so that God would use me to lead his congregation in worship. I knew complaining about worship in church wouldn’t fix things. It’s easy to say what’s wrong, it’s not so easy to get your hands dirty to fix it. I will not boast in my abilities, but I will boast that God’s power was at work in allowing me learn so dang fast. I literally was able to learn basic strumming patterns within two weeks. Before I knew it, I was leading worship within less than a year, and now I’m at a point where I want to actually get GREAT at guitar. For me, I feel like guitar is easy to learn, but hard to master. I’ll continue to allow God to use me in whatever ways he can. I don’t know…This was just a thought that went through my mind today. I pray and I ask you readers to pray for me that my heart is humbled :)

It has been a while and this is what has been in my heart…

So I just remembered that I had a tumblr so since I’m taking a semester off I should be blogging a lot more. I’m also writing this post from my phone (I know! It’s so incredible). I’m planning to abuse my phone for all its uses. Well with that said I guess this is somewhat of a post-retreat…post? This retreat has been a great one, I learned a lot about what it meant to be a worship leader and I felt something I have never felt when I led worship before; I let the spirit lead. God really hit me hard and it is no secret that people have been leaving NYCBC left and right. Up to the point now that a select few have decided to step up and try to revive the church. There were times where I really felt hopeless for our church, but that was because it was too overwhelming… there are so many parts that need work and its so hard to work on evrrything. So I asked myself… where is my passion? God really pointed me towards worship. Over the past year and a couple months I have learned guitar and I’ve had the privilege of learning from awesome worship leaders in college. I’ve realized that a lot of people go to college and realize that college church is sooooo awesome and fellowship there is so much more intimate than their home church or what not. They then decide that their home church is “not for them” so they leave. Me? Well… all of that is true, college church is freaking amazing and I’m really close with my friends at Intervarsity Christian fellowship. Outreach is our main goal and to be totally honest, the fellowship at Stony is blooming! But it doesn’t turn me off from NYCBC, as a matter of fact it gave me more of a passion to revive NYCBC. I’ve learned so much from college and I’m willing to use it to better my home church. The very church that has invested so much time for me in the past 20 years of my life. God is not done with me at NYCBC, and has pointed me to a direction for change in the worship there. Where feeling comfortable is not enough. People should feel overwhelming feelings of brokeness, joy, vulnerability when they worship, not comfort. I have a lot to learn and I hope anyone of my friends who read this pray that I will not let this semester that I’m taking off go to waste.
