This Christmas you can either get your loved ones gifts from this guy…
who runs an illegal toy sweatshop on a secret island far from international law and breaks into your home every year…
Or from Unka Glen…
who will provide your friends and family with monthly songs, sermons, and bible studies to strengthen their walk, and use the proceeds from your gift to share the good news of the Gospel with gang members, prisoners and addicts in Chicago.
Make the right choice, and make Christmas count. Give the gift of Bridge Box. Gifts start at just $8 at missionusa.com/christmas.

Almost 3 months ago to the day I prayed a prayer of humility, asking God to humble me and do whatever he needed to do to get me where I needed to be. Several minutes after that prayer my laptop spontaneously crashed for seemingly no apparent reason, right before the beginning of Fall Semester.
I showed it to anyone and everyone who was tech savvy enough to diagnose it, but it was a mystery crash; even the geek squad couldn’t analyze it saying, “yeahhhhh…we’ve never seen anything like this before.”
…That’s when you know it’s bad haha!
Anyway, I went these last few months without it and got by just fine. In fact, it’s been almost refreshing not to have it around. I learned much about necessity and how to become a lot more reliant on God. However, these past couple weeks have been crucial as the semester is dwindling to a close and final projects and papers are being issued.
Less than an hour ago I sat on my bed, laptop before me, completely humbled before Him and said, “God I could really use this right now. If you are willing you will fix it and provide this for me…”
Minutes later my laptop rebooted and logged on, completely unaffected by anything. Even all the tabs I had up when the system crashed were restored back to their natural state when I opened my web browser, as if nothing had ever happened at all.
“…A man with leprosy came to him and begged him on his knees, ‘If you are willing, you can make me clean.’ Filled with compassion, Jesus reached down and touched the man. ‘I am willing,’ he said. ‘Be clean!’ Immediately the leprosy left him and he was cured.” Mark 1:40-42
God is willing when we are humbled. It’s amazing what praying by the scriptures can do for our lives, even the little stuff…God cares about it all. The key is that we must be willing to sacrifice whatever it takes, and let God take it. I am learning this every day.
Thank you Lord for being a God who is ever teaching and always providing :-)
On that note…it’s good to be back!!
Completely amazed by the power of the Holy Spirit…praise God!!!
There is no one else for me;
None but Jesus.
Crucified to set me free;
Now I live to bring Him praise.
