Hanging out of a helicopter

It has been almost four years since I regularly posted here on Already Answered, but, despite that, God has blessed this site and the articles I have written still gets thousands of views a month! This is very humbling and I am blessed to have had an opportunity to spread God’s truth to the world.

It is hard to believe it has been four years. Life has been crazy. Crazy awesome but crazy none the less. The above picture is of me hanging out of a helicopter from just last week. My video production company (Filmko Studios) has also been blessed by God and we are filming every week from Christian music videos like the one below, to helicopters pulling out ski lifts, which is when I got the above picture.

When I was up in the sky in that helicopter for six hours filming, I got to see how amazing God’s creation is! And not just the incredible landscape I got to see but also the feats man has accomplished because of the wonderful gifts God has given us. We have come so far in our “advancement” but at the same time something still bugs me.

We have progressed significantly in recent times when it comes to technology and the such, but where have we progressed in the only important way? Adrian Rogers used to often say, “if you want to see how rich you are, count up the things in your life money can’t buy and death cannot take away from you.” That is very true. In the end, God is the only One that matters.

I really got to see this recently when I was hired for a filming job in Los Angeles, California. We arrived in LAX Airport at 10pm, so I got to see the city at night from several thousand feet in the air. It was incredible. I looked out both airplane windows and could only see LA. It was huge. The biggest city that I remember being in was less than 25% the size of LA!

But, something I realized was, that this huge city was still nothing compared to the size of the earth, the sun, or even the solar system, much less the universe! And Who created all that? Who created we minuscule humans to enjoy His masterpiece?

Most importantly, what do we do with that knowledge?

Have a great day!

12 Years Later . . .

study55This last Monday, I did my last final exam for school! I still have to do a presentation this next Monday and then some summer school in order to be the first one in my family to graduate with a diploma, but I am otherwise done with school!

Normally, every school night my head hits the pillow and I fall asleep within minutes because of my exhaustion . . . not the night I finished school. I couldn’t fall asleep for quite a while. I literally, when I finished school, felt the burden of it all lift off my shoulders. Because I was dual-enrolled (I did homeschooling and online-schooling) my first two years of highschool, I didn’t have enough credits to plausibly graduate by my senior year. So, this required getting 16 credits in one school year!

After getting a special pass by the principal, I was allowed to take more classes than average. I was able to keep up with it but it usually sent me to bed very tired. And then, to keep the cruelty on, it would get me out of bed early to finish it all up! Fortunately, I had Christ backing me on this important goal to graduate and I was able to make it through the last two, difficult years.

I praise God for His stunning provision through these last few years! He is truly amazing!

“You’re Really Fighting, Aren’t You?”

excerciseNot too long ago my brother and I were talking about some aspects of what I do with this website. All of a sudden he said, “you’re really fighting, aren’t you?’

That one question really made me smile and then ponder.

My fellow brother or sister in Christ, can you say that you are fighting to keep the mind of humanity to focus on the integrity of God’s Word. Can any of us honestly say that we completely surrender ourselves to the work and defense of God’s Word?

Let it be something for all of us to think about!
