- Merry Christmas everyone, much love.
This year my Christmas is being spent in Cambodia. It's my third Christmas across seas and I still haven't gotten used to it. Either way I hope you all enjoy yours, do something different, ask that special someone out, take a little Christmas adventure with friends, whatever makes you feel good. And of course, love each other, you know we need it.

- Matthew 10:29-31
"Are not two sparrows sold for a cent? And yet not one of them will fall to the ground apart from your Father. "But the very hairs of your head are all numbered. "So do not fear; you are more valuable than many sparrows.

- Selling a good few of my designs that I& #39;m not using. There are a couple designs not mentioned in this post that are also up for grabs too. I can also do small edits and add-ins of lettering for a slight charge. Proceeds are going towards my 3 month outreach to Cambodia. Email me for info and purchase at nshiveley @ yahoo.com

- About a year and a half ago, I got offered a position as a lead designer for one of my favorite brands. They offered to move me back home to California (except in Anaheim instead of L.A.) and pay for a year of housing to get me settled. When I got this call, I was totally blown away, a random dude with no degree receiving an opportunity to live out his dream and to be financially set for a good while. That had to be from God right? I was stoked because I felt like this was God's way of saying "hey dude, you've done a good job, here's your reward!" So I started celebrating, I called up the fam and told them about how I'm moving back to California, but as I did that I got this uneasiness. As I prayed for it to leave, I heard God tell me that I wasn't supposed to go and that I was to honor what He has asked me to do with the whole missions thing. And that really messed me up, I wrestled a lot with it (and I still do sometimes) and I tried negotiating with myself using the "God would love me despite the disobedience, so why does it matter?" line. Nevertheless, I stayed and slowly the disappointment faded away. I started telling myself that if I consider a job from one of my favorite companies to be a big deal then an assignment from the King of Kings is some next level goodness and I felt in my heart that He was up to something cool. I ended up going to Nepal for 3 months last year and during my time there I only saw one person come to Christ. Just one. Yet I wasn't disappointed because the moment that happened I felt like this whole journey was worth it. I felt there were 2 lists in front of me, one of the things I wanted to do and one of the things God wanted to do through me and I watched the list merge into one. At that point I came to the realization that I'd rather see one person come to Christ than to live a life of safety. And in 5 days I'll be leaving to rural Cambodia for 3 months and I know something rad is going to happen, whatever it looks like. So long live the adventure.
