Jeremiah 32:27

Dear God,
Let me walk on water with your Spirit inside of me.

God > _______

Dear Daddy,
praying over all the younglife clubs this semester; that the people coming out show authenticity and are so raw with you God. so many times we put up barriers and walls to shut others out, but Lord work through us and tear down every burdening thing. You are more. i pray over the Believers coming to club Lord. that they are encouraged and can be like Levi by bringing others to Your truth. for the Non-believers Lord i pray that you break their hearts. break them so that You can restore them. so often i feel like Younglife is put in this negative category to outsiders Lord but in reality it is the good and it is what everyone needs to hear. fuel me with Your characteristics to be daring to invite the last person i'd invite.
thank you for Your blessing of this ministry.

What is too great?

It was so awesome to see some of my family in Christ this weekend God. I felt so alive in the Spirit the entire time. I'm so thankful that you've sent the Holy Spirit to dwell inside of us. It's just too sweet! I've realized I've gotta be a warrior for you in this world and I'm ready to do it. I want to truly harness the Spirit and let you use me completely. For what is too great for our God who spun the planets into orbit? Dude, just too sick man.

Love Lucas

everything through You

I just pray to be filled by You, and not allowing myself to forget whose name it is that i'm reppin'. i'm exhausted already and school has hardly started. i need my energy to be fueled by You, and for me to rely on Your strength. i cannot do this on my own. let me see fall to You 24/7. not other people, but You Sovereign God. let me be sanctified by Your Spirit and have my desire never cease but continue to grow daily, actually by the second. i love you Daddy and know how bad i need to remember You are on my side.

The Cry of My Heart


You are just so good. I cannot express in these simple words the gratitude I feel towards You. I thank You over and over for Your blessings. Thank You for giving me patience with others and with myself. Thank You for guiding me towards people who will help me to grow in You. Thank You for giving me spiritual rest and security in Your strong and comforting arms. Thank You for my struggles, as they push me closer to You for stability. Thank You for choosing me to do Your will. Thank You for Love. Thank You for the Cross. Thank You for Your Spirit, leading me through this newfound independence from the world and dependence on You.

Thank You for being.

And thank You for not letting forget that.

In Your Perfect Name,
Dear God,

Thank you for a new start. Tonight was a night of dwelling, on the good rather than the bad. Thank you for the blessings in my life and for opening my eyes to see them. The beauty in this world is amazing Lord, only something you can create. Help me to see it every day; help me to feel your love when I start slipping down. Don't let me fall back into who I was.

Most of all, thank you for clarity Lord. On life, on friendships, on letting go. I feel in my heart the fulfillment I've been looking for all my life. I never thought I would have the strength that I do now. Help me to turn to you from now on, always. The change in my life is so evident that its overwhelming. Your love is overwhelming, and I would be a fool not to take advantage of that. True giving comes from an overflowing heart. Thank you for your love. Thank you for seeing the depths of my heart and still loving me the same.

Help my work crew family keep strong in their faith. Help us to stick by each other as hard times come. Help us to lift each other up and be there at all times. You put us all together for a reason, and that reason is so clear to me Lord. I feel it in my heart how close we are and will always be. I could not be more thankful for them. True friendships are such a blessing.

All my delight is in you Lord, forevermore. Watch over us this month as the seasons start to change; for better and for worse. Help us to keep our hearts filled with your love and our mind focused on your purpose. With every day that passes, my love for you becomes stronger. Please don't let it fade. Help me to embrace your beauty in every second of every day. This life is such a blessing. Thank you.

Your daughter,

Dear God,
Sometimes I get so caught up in the plans I have, even the plans you have for me, that I don't take the time to sit back and ponder and actually listen to what you have to say to me God. Sometimes, I know you love it, but I do a lot of the talking. Tonight I slowed down and listened Lord, you gave me the signs that you had something to say. All the work I've done being a sacrifice in your name at Workcrew this August flashed before my mind. It never really set in how much of an eternal impact we had that month over the world. I said this before that my mind cannot supply the words adequate to describe what happened and how I feel, only the depths of my heart, Your heart, can describe the events that have taken place. Father thank you that I am so blessed, you've set onto me and my brothers a task to help change this world one person at a time. As the song says God "My life is not my own, to you I belong, I give myself to you". I crave that intimacy with you my God, and I want everyone else in it with me! If words on paper could yell, this would be screaming your name, a plea for the courage to do your will. I love how casual I can be with you, I just like kickin it with you sometimes and watch the world spin. I'll write again soon, but talk to you before then.

My Texts From Last Night

"What are you doing?"

"I'm pondering the extents of life"

"And what are the extents of life?"

"Endless are the extents of life my friend"

The impossible is conquered through the Lord

Hard Not To Smile

I'll never be able to grasp the beauty of the world you made, knowing that every minute of my life was planned right, and that you're right in the middle of it. God thank you for laughter, and for laughing with us when we laugh and smiling when we smile. It's hard to have a bad day when I know every day is spent in your presence.

Dear God,

Thank you for giving me so much power to chase others and the eyes to see the brokenness in their hearts. God thank you for being good, thank you for loving us. It's such a blessing to be a radical in this world, but live in truth.


Ready To Run

Dear God,
It's been so amazing this past month serving you whole heartedly, I'm really getting the hang of letting you take control. Even when I found out that my grandparents were both starting their cancer treatment at the same time, I knew it was in your hands. We all wonder why bad things happen to good people, but if people are truly good and know you, the trials we face bring us so much deeper in to your love. Today you had the fellas and I meet at breakfast to talk about your plans for us this year in the halls of our school, and I thank you for really driving me to start the day off. It's so crazy to think, we have the gift of eternal water inside of us, and we get to share our cup, which you fill, to those around us. I even got to share the gospel with my mother who I pray will also find serenity in you, so I can spend eternity with her. On another note, it's been so sick being able to casually chill with you throughout my day. The little and big decisions in my life now go through you, I can't get you off of my mind as I fall in love with you. It's such an out of body experience seeing how broken the world is, but how beautiful you made it to be. Father, I just pray that you would reveal your truth for me, as a true ambassador for you. Thank you for everything I take for granted, Jesus, this is in your name.
