Two awesome things happening today in Hawaii.
1-Fathers day for my พ่อ! Cause he's awesome and loves the ocean and is a way strong example of hard work and dedication in my life.
2-ASHTON'S BIRTHDAY yes, my younger brother is now....13? Yeah that sounds about right. He's old. I'm old. Everyone is old. WOOOOO. Stay stoked Ashton (aka Da best ellis).
Many people familiar with missionary work will have probably heard this already saying: "There's no such thing as dead areas, only dead missionaries."
So true. So. So. So much truth ringing in this sentence. There's no such thing as a dead area in the vineyard of the Lord. Only people who aren't willing to give more. Sacrifice, but really it isn't a sacrifice at all. It's a submission of doing more. I feel like I come back to this same though every single week. Probably not every week. But quite a majority of the time.
For every thing that you do, there is a price. Let us think of this price not in a negative sense (as in a loss) but rather as just a switch-off, a choice between two (or more) paths. There is always a "price" sometimes the price is our time or our talents. Things that God has actually given us. The much larger and bigger and way more valuable "price" would definitely be our will. Our heart. Our desires. Things that God actually can't take away. Every single person has moral agency, the ability to make choices in every circumstance. We can choose to follow our heart and our desires or we can try to follow the desires of something higher and stronger. But it's up to us. What we do, what we say. Even down to what we think. There's a price for every action.
Forward Ever. Stopping Never.
