You see true love, I mean true true love, the kind of love that Jesus has, requires Faith to do it. If its easy to do it then that’s not the same love, it just doesn’t carry the same power or weight as Love that actually requires Faith to do it.  The reason this kind of love requires Faith is because you have no idea if your going to get a return on your investment. In fact it’s likely that your not.


but that’s no excuse


So come on people you can do this

but then refusing to get bent out of shape if they don’t say thank you and appreciate you


You see true love doesn’t require something back


Jesus died for some people that will never love Him, some people he died for will never run up to Him and say thank you for taking a beating for me, but you know what He did it anyway, He died for their sins too.


That’s love

So if your reading this and saying, “I can’t do this” then I say to you, “You can!” Darin says, “You can!” Even Macy says, “You can” The Sims know just exactly how hard this is and what you are possibly facing if you do this but you can do it! God is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him and that is what is required, to do what we are asking you to do. So if you know me or know Darin or know someone who knows us or just happened upon this blog then I’m talking to you, God is talking to you!

Be courageous and go get your testimony!


Genesis 50:20

You intended to harm me, but God intended it for good to accomplish what is now being done, the saving of many lives.

Hebrews 11:6

And without Faith it is impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to Him must believe that He exists and that he rewards those who earnestly seek Him.

Luke 16:10

Whoever can be trusted with very little can also be trusted with much, and whoever is dishonest with little will be dishonest with much.
