I am a father many times over, blessed with multiple children, all with children of their own. While other dads seem far better at fatherhood, I am still making progress, learning to steer through the constant changes through which a family passes. God’s gift to me? The forgiveness and mature counsel of my family and friends. The other great gift to me is my own sons and son-in-law. They are, to the man, very, very good fathers. Lord God, you are Father of All, thank You for being the perfect example of fatherhood.
“But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you, and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth,”Acts 1:8 ESV. Most people would like to make an impact on the world around them, but it seems so overwhelming. Is it really? An avalanche begins with the movement of one single object; your next move may be the ignition point of something amazing. Inspired ideas launched by passionate commitment and followed by steady advances can change the trajectory of your entire future. I’ve had the privilege of being around quite a few world changers over a lifetime. Some are truly natural stars, but frankly, most are amazingly ordinary; it is their stubborn relentlessness to make something special happen that is the difference. Jesus’ disciples were simple men and women that changed their world. His true disciples still are. Lord, in Your Mercy, move my heart that I may be used to move others.
