Galatians 5:16-17

So I say, walk by the Spirit, and you will not gratify the desires of the flesh.For the flesh desires what is contrary to the Spirit, and the Spirit what is contrary to the flesh. They are in conflict with each other, so that you are not to do whatever you want. Galatians 5:16-17

Prayer please

Hi guys!
I really miss you.

Hawaii is beautiful. My living situation is really blessed, 4 rad guys, who all serve and are so nice and fun. They're all really adventurous and disciplined and older than me and it's been really good to be around that. We went spearfishing on Memorial Day - awesome! I didn't catch anything but when you see a fish and start chasing it, the anticipation was enough fun in itself;)
The people are nice to haoles like me, waves are great, the exposure to church stuff is awesome, the Spirit moves so visibly and so often!

But I'm tired spiritually. It's like stretching a sore muscle - or working out a muscle that I don't even have yet;) But God is so faithful and even amidst my irritation, frustration, and ungraceful exhaustion I am hearing him more clearly than I can ever remember.

Can you pray for me please, I need it.
For courage to step into anything that he asks of me. And for an awareness and strength to call on the Spirit for help to push through when I get tired and/or frustrated.

How has circles been going?


  1. Spear fishing ?!?!? Thats booomb. and very caveman/stone-age-ish. Gettin in touch with the roots, I see.

    Praying for you my brother. I pray you can step into those awarenesses that the Spirit places in your perception. Courageously. and whole-heartedly. Trusting that He is surely conforming you to His image.

  2. Praying for you ☺ Asking the Lord to be your strength. May you find rest in Him and be rejuvenated. Lord, please give Billy boldness and a greater understanding of your heart, especially for the people you have called him to serve. May He fall more and more in love with you every day.

  3. Praying for you! I am so glad that you are having a great time and meeting amazing people. God is using you Billy! I am so excited to hear the next thing that God is doing in your life in Hawaii. Yay!

  4. I can understand that fatigue. I've been feeling it a few days ago, and I think it really came down to my complete surrender to him. I'll be praying for you!

  5. So jealous about the spear fishing lol. Praying for you and your spirit filled adventure. Miss ya brother.

  6. billy, you have such a good heart. i'm so glad you're loving it, but so excited to see you soon! the sore muscle thing...mmm, that gives me a lot to contemplate.

  7. I almost went spearfishing when I was there! ahh. love it. sometimes it gets really intense!

    I am praying for you. He is faithful. it is a simple, but so very true statement. :)

    hold tight to Him, no matter what happens because HE ALREADY KNOWS what that muscle is going to look like.
