It’s been a while, I know. Lots going on with the birth of our 3rd child, Elias, around the corner and all the doctor drama we’ve been encountering (search “ELIAS” for updates from the wifey)!
Anywho, my oldest child just turned five today, and I’m in a little shock over it. WHERE HAS THE TIME GONE? Am I really the father of a five year old?! Great Jehoshaphat!
We did the usual card, presents, etc. for my precious Emery and a life verse my wife wrote in the card for our daughter was Psalm 143:8 which reads,
“Let me hear in the morning of your steadfast love, for in you I trust. Make me know the way I should go, for to you I lift up my soul.”
I love this verse. First, instead of hearing my alarm, or of great tragedies, traffic delays, and empty promises of petty politicians in the morning, I need to “hear” the steadfast love of our God! Perhaps my listening skills are a little untrained, however, due to my lack of trust in Him.
Second, knowing the way I should go speaks volumes to me in this chapter of life. Whether it’s my job, my growing family that is about to include a high needs child potentially, my opportunities for ministry, or my future schooling, I have been screaming (internally of course), “Make me know the way I should go!”
If you have ever shouted this, or even thought about it, I highly recommend checking out this video below. Knowing the answer is probably easier than most of us surmise. Now this video does revolve around married couples, but honestly, it has so many gems that any person, in any relational status, can find much to be encouraged with and challenged by.
Enjoy you hopeful hipsters!
