"The Sisneros family's spirit-filled, courageous journey of total abandon to the Great Commission, has lead them to leave the comforts of a familiar life and step into the lives of children who have no one else to stand for them." ~ Pastor Reza Zadeh
Do you love me?
Five years ago I was sitting alone in my basement. The Denver Broncos had just lost a game. I don’t know why God chose to speak to me that day but He did.
“Do you love Me?”
Yes! Of course I love You?
“Do you love Me more than you love your wife?”
I paused. And as I thought about it, I knew the answer.
“I love my wife more.”
“Do you love Me more than you love your kids?”
This time is rolled off my tongue more easily. I love my kids more than I love You Father.
“Do you love Me more than you love the Denver Broncos?”
I had just watched my team for 3 hours, like I always do on Sundays during football season. And as I thought about it, I’d never spent 3 hours alone with God. Ever. I’d never prayed for 3 straight hours. I’d never read my bible for 3 straight hours.
I wondered to myself, do I really love God?
I made a commitment that night to stop praying. I stopped praying for my businesses. I stopped praying for my health. I stopped praying for safety. I traded all my personal prayers for one, four word prayer.
For an entire year I prayed, “God. I Love You.”
The following November, 2011 I found myself in Guatemala helping at a feeding center in Guatemala City.
I remember walking in the back door and seeing 200 kids packed into a very full cafeteria. They were waiting and getting settled in their seats. The church worship team started playing music and singing AND THE KIDS ALL STOOD UP TO SING WITH THEM.
These kids weren’t just poor. They were poor poor.
I was standing at the back of the room, watching them raise their hands and worship our mighty God. They LOVED Him. You could see it. You could feel it. And it was on this day, watching those kids, that I realized, I loved God too.
“I don’t want you on Sundays. I don’t want you when you have time. I want ALL of you. Follow me.”
Seven months later my family and I had sold our house, our two successful businesses and moved to Guatemala to serve our one true Love with our whole lives.
“Every time I read anything from you I’m always so moved by your Faith and ability to use each and every situation to Glorify God. You’re an inspiration and a person God is using in my life to show me and teach me things in my spiritual journey.” ~ Kevin
