Just getting started…

Yesterday as I visited my dad, my father-in-law, spent time with our small group and heard a great message at church, I started thinking about what Father’s Day means for me, as a the dad of a 24-year-old woman. I was also inspired by Jeremy Camp’s latest song, ‘Getting Started.’

Here’s a prayer I wrote and posted to my Facebook page:

Today I was reminded and challenged that in many ways, I’m just getting started.

Lord, please help me to be a better father and better husband.

Help me to continue to root my trust in you. Help me to invite the Holy Spirit into all that I do and then allow the fruits of His Spirit to flow out of me.

Help me to confess and seek forgiveness when I mess up, but also to equally return that forgiveness.

Help me to be a father to the fatherless when I have those opportunities. Help me to be a strong resource to young dads.

Finally, thank you for giving me two grandfathers and a father who loved me, spent time with me and taught me.

Name an item you might buy in a souvenir shop:
T-shirt – 28 votes
Keychain – 21
Postcard – 18
Magnet – 12
Mug – 11
Stuffed animal – 10

Congratulations to Amberly from Howard, who guessed those top two answers and wins the $5 gift card to Round Hill Dairy.

God Cleans The Stains

Today for our Monday Motivation we shared a special devotional out of Our Daily Bread called God Cleans The Stains. With a humble and repentant heart, we must acknowledge our sins and place them under the cleansing light of God’s holiness. We must turn from them and return to Him. And He, the only One who cleans the stains of the soul, will offer us complete forgiveness and renewed fellowship. To read the full devotional click HERE.

Today’s Monday Motivation song is the latest from Josh Wilson ‘Things That Im Afraid Of’

An amazing line from that song says,

My fears would surely kill me
If I didn’t know the truth
The things that I’m afraid of
Are afraid of You

It’s so reassuring to remember that God already won the battle and that we are not to be afraid because he has us in his arms.

Name a place that people go to, which they insist be clean.

Bathroom – 42

Restaurant – 30

Kitchen/Fridge – 18

Hospital – 6

Congratulations to our winner, Anna, she won a $5 gift card to Round Hill Dairy!

Thanks for listening!
