Living on the Edge

Have you ever seen one of those movies with a stuntman who jumps off a building and crashes through the carton of fruit, then keeps running in order to catch the bad guys? That’s about how I’m feeling right now. After a month and a half of red-eye flights, airport lines, and living out of my duffle, I’ve finally crash landed back in the Philippines. Even though I’ve finally got my shirts on hangers and my underwear folded up on shelves, I’m still charging ahead. We’ve only got a month and a half till the Edge/Emerge Redeem the Airwaves Conference here in Manila. That means lots of time at the office training the staff, organizing promotions, and creating the art and copy for the event. This has been one of the most hectic and most exhilarating times of my life. Much like a match striking on the side of the box, friction can light you up. I think it’s all about your expectations. Is this going to bog me down and wipe me out? Or is this going to test me and give me the chance to truly shine?

Here’s a few photos of my time here so far:

    wow, sounds like u guys have a pretty full and exciting life, Jake and I have hectic travel life as well, but it’s awesome how a passion for God and for a cause keeps you going knowing it will be worth it all. I’m always reminding myself, don’t grow weary in doing good, for in due time you will reap a harvest if you do not give up. we all know it is rewarding when we sell out to him, but important also to get time of rest and rejuvination in his presence. but he gives us strength and it’s all worth it! (sorry, i tend to write books for comments)

    Ha ha, I don’t mind at all Michelle. Thanks for the encouragement, my friend. You’re right about the rest bit. I have the tendency to come alive at night and work (or play) late into the night. Do that a few times a week and you’re ragged out by Thursday. One of my goals this year is to get to sleep at 12 every night. So far I’ve got a spotty record 🙂
