I believe that when we are born, that heaven and earth agree concerning our existence. Heaven releases me and earth receives us to fulfill God's purpose and plan for our lives.
Ever since this revelation, I strived to be deliberate and intentional in everything I do and say. No one is born by accident!!
Today, I once again stand in awe of God who has kept and sustained me by His Grace for the past 69 years.
I thank God for the sweetest person I know, my wife, Cathy. Our marriage of 47 years continues to be the best time of our lives.
I thank God for our 3 daughters, their husbands, and 8 grandchildren.
I thank God for my sons-in-law because they love and cherish my daughters and grandchildren.
Oh the Goodness, Kindness, Grace, and Generosity of God is amazing and unfathomable. That I could have experienced this Love is the greatest blessing of all.
Father, I pray that you would protect our children, grandchildren and even our descendants yet unborn to time. That they would know you and serve you, and that you would protect them against current and future pandemics, even the scourge of GBV, that none of them will fall prey to these evils. I invoke the promises of Psalm 91 over all our children.
I look forward to the future with great expectation with the knowledge that our Great God holds our future in His hands. What a mighty God we serve!!
Lord, please help me to finish strong.
