An Ephesians 3:20 life

"Now to Him Who, by (in consequence of) the [action of His] power that is at work within us, is able to [carry out His purpose and] do superabundantly, far over and above all that we [dare] ask or think-infinitely beyond our highest prayers,desires,thoughts,hopes or dreams-to Him be the glory..."
Ephesians 3:20 Amplified

One thing Scott and I have been sure of from the moment we decided to do life together was that we wanted more. We wanted our lives to be full. Full of everything God has to offer and like this verse says, even more. We knew full well that when we committed to live out this verse in Ephesians that there would be a great cost. And we surrendered our dreams, our thoughts and desires. Everything we ever wanted and thought we were supposed to be and do with our lives. We gave that up and told God, we want more. We want more than we could possibly dream of we want it for our marriage, our careers, ministry, friendships, children. We want MORE than we can imagine, and we will do anything to give you complete control so that we can live an Ephesians 3:20 life.

There are many ways in our life that we find God working this verse in us, and making this word to be true in our life. However we are entering into the most gigantic leap of faith we have ever thought capable in our little lives. And we invite you to share in our journey. Whether you believe in God or not, we want you to follow us, watch what God does, and be encouraged! He's alive! And He is GOOD, so good to those who love Him (Romans 8:28).

We really believe that God has an awesome design. And great dreams for our life. And we agreed to allow Him to work those out in us forever, literally now and for all eternity, to do whatever He wants so that we can experience the absolute best. Like I said before there is a cost to live this way. It takes an intense amount of faith that cannot come from our own efforts, but only through a relationship with God. It also takes a lot of surrender, release of control over our lives and the lives of our children in a way that may seem crazy and unpredictable, but we will never say No to God! Its not in our vocabulary!

Come join us in our victories and our struggles. And praise God with us for His goodness!
