THRIVE: Last visit before we head home…


We need to trust God to take care of things when we can’t be present ourselves. We need to believe that God’s plans are good and so we can trust Him to take care of things when we can’t be present. We need to give our loved ones into His hands because we know that He loves them even more than we do. So today we will give the keys back and put all our hope and trust in God as we let go and choose to let God take care of the rest. His ways are higher than our ways. His ways are better than our ways. His ways are the only ways for there to be hope and a future.

First with my oldest daughter and today with my youngest daughter. From a pastoral degree to a rescue position. From a D1 school to a ministry school, from the idea of a degree in education to a degree in sports management, with a feeling for sports evangelism. And today, I trust God even more because I know He has a plan for my girls, a plan that is good, a plan that is filled with love, a plan that will give them hope and a future. As we give back the keys and prepare to head home with just the 3 of us and a home that will welcome us back with our dogs, our cats, our donkeys and our neighbors, and God making plans for the future our son will be stepping in and stepping up to accomplish for the glory of God.


Verse of the Day:

“But I say to you, love [that is, unselfishly seek the best or higher good for] your enemies and pray for those who persecute you,”

‭‭Matthew‬ ‭5:44‬ ‭AMP‬‬

Today’s Post from Be The Dads:


Where are you at today? Are you trusting God? Are you believing His promises? Are you read? Invite Jesus into your heart! Invite Jesus into your life! Ask the Holy Spirit to lead and guide you with wisdom and discernment so that you can walk out life with His peace that surpasses all understanding!

Dear God, I know that I am a sinner and there is nothing that I can do to save myself. I confess my complete helplessness to forgive my own sin or to work my way to heaven. At this moment I trust Christ alone as the One who bore my sin when He died on the cross. I believe that He did all that will ever be necessary for me to stand in your holy presence. I thank you that Christ was raised from the dead as a guarantee of my own resurrection. As best as I can, I now transfer my trust to Him. I am grateful that He has promised to receive me despite my many sins and failures. Father, I take you at your word. I thank you that I can face death now that you are my Savior. Thank you for the assurance that you will walk with me through the deep valley. Thank you for hearing this prayer. In Jesus’ Name. Amen.
