Dads…there are Six gifts that God has laid on my heart to
share with “us” over the next six weeks.
Six gifts that He gives to us all freely to receive unconditionally daily.
I love music.
When I was a kid my grand parents belonged to a record club (Google “records” if you need a definition).
Every month…new arrivals came in the mail. You never knew from one genre to the next.
So needless to say I was exposed to a wide range of artist from:
Willie Nelson (On the road Again) to Gladys Knight and the pips (Midnight train to Georgia)
From Frank Sinatra (My Way) to the Doobie Brothers (Jesus is Just Alright)
from Barry Manilow (Looks Like We Made It) to Ted Nugent (Stranglehold)
Some of my earliest memories are from listening to albums from Johnny Cash live from
San Quintin and Folsom Prison (A boy named Sue)
to Andy Williams Variety show singing (Moon River).
Included in those albums (records) were many Bands…just as diverse!
Eagles; Lynrd Skynyrd; Bread; Back Street Boys, and even great marching bands!
One of my favorite tunes was a Skynrd song called "Call me the Breeze."
Still today I am always on the lookout for my favorite new song!
One of my favorite’s old hymns is called the
Hymn of promise #707 (Typically cannot sing all the way through)
Although I love the melody…its the words that say it all..
"In our end is our beginning; in our time, infinity;
In our doubt there is believing; in our life, eternity,
In our death, a resurrection; at the last, a victory,
Unrevealed until its season, something God alone can see."
In the book of Revelation 5:9 - We read about “A New Song”
DADS, a few thoughts on this New Song available to us all...
So DADs the first gift God gives us today and EVERY DAYis a “NEW SONG”
DADS…let’s receive this gift and sing this New Song Today! You Have Been Remade!!
DADs…do not stand on the sidelines of life…get off the bench…“get in the game”…Today is game day…and so is every day…God gives you!So…C’mon DADs…Suit Up!
To follow the “Suit Up” Movement…
