I was once watching a NASCAR race on TV
and after 400 hundred miles one of the drivers that had 
the lead on the last lap ran out of gas on the final lap allowing 
another to pass him for the victory.
 
Now being a fairly new fan of racing…I am still learning the 
strategies of the race. What I am finding out is that there are 
many adjustments to each drivers original start plan 
throughout the race.
 
Depending on how each driver handles different circumstances 
that he or she encounters during a race will often determine the 
final outcome.  
 
Many times the drivers that are able to finish and even win
are the ones that take heed to listen to the instructions that 
they are given by their crew chief throughout the day…
 
"If you listento and are careful to keep these ordinances, the LORD 
your God will keep His covenant loyalty with you, as He swore to your fathers.
 
What is it your crew chief…your heavenly father trying to tell you today?
Will you take heed…or will you run out of gas not being able to finish the race?
 
DADs…“get in the game”…
Today is game day…and so is every day…
God gives you! 
So…C’mon DADs…Suit Up!

DADs...This week I am talking about the similarities of my new found 
obsession NASCAR and our life in general.
 
For example, just like in NASCAR…we often find ourselves on the 
FAST track going around and around at high speeds trying to win 
the human race. To ensure that we are able to keep going so we 
don’t run out of gas…we NEED to  listen to the advice of our "crew chief" 
and make a pit stop!
 
DADs…the problem is we are sometimes the NASCAR driver that fails 
to heed direction and reluctant to trust the advice of others and our personal 
"crew chief"…our Heavenly Father.
 
DADs...You see to be the control of your race…we must relinquish the wheel 
and allow God to be the real driver of our lives!        
 
Jeremiah 29:11:
11For I know the plans I have for you "this is the LORD's declaration—
"plans for your welfare, not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope.
In all circumstances our God, our Heavenly Father knows best!
 
DADs…
Where in your life do you need a pit stop to receive God’s plan for your race? 
 
 DADs…“get in the game”…Today is game day…and so is every day…
God gives you! So…C’mon DADs…Suit Up!

DADs, recently I have caught the Nascar fever. 

For years I never understood the excitement of watching 

cars go around and around a track for 3 or 4 hours! But after 

giving Nascar a real chance…I have discovered that there is 

a lot more to this racing thing that meets the eye.

For instance…what other sport begins with a chaplain saying a 

prayer to God and His son Jesus Christ aired live for all those 

watching on TV to hear? Talk about evangelism.

Now I am not endorsing nor soliciting your support of Nascar…

but I am celebrating the fact that a major spectator event that occurs 

36 weekends a year on National networks…demonstrates its boldness 

and is not ashamed to give glory to our country’s Christian foundation 

and belief in Jesus.

  

In Philippians 1:20 

Paul says…

My eager expectation and hope is that I will not be ashamed about anything, 

but that now as always, with all boldness,Christ will be highly 

honored in my body, whether by life or by death.

DADs, do not be ashamed, just like Nascar to show your boldnessfor Christ? 

Be eager to model your boldnessfor your kids and your family today!

DADS…“get in the game”…Today is game day…and so is every day…

God gives you! So…C’mon men…Suit Up!

DADs…how many times have you set your sights on a goal…

only finding yourself falling short or missing the target?

How often have you prepared long & hard for a job interview only to receive 

a thanks but no thanks letter in the mail a week after the process?

How often has a loved one made a decision that caused hard ache to you or your family?

Disappointment is a part of life. 

A friend once told me that in the good times or in the bad times, 

the statement “this too shall pass” works in all situations. I don’t know about you…

but I don’t really find much comfort in that…

but in Romans 8:28, I do find a more appropriate answer… 

Paul tells his disciples, 

“We know that all things work together for the good of those 

who love God: those who are called according to His purpose.”

In the midst of disappointment or failures…it is hard to see God’s purpose…

but we must find the faith in the storm that God’s will…

even in dark circumstances will be eventually revealed.

Remembering that Paul places emphasis on His purpose versus ours…

allows us to pick up the pieces and persevere as it is written in

James 1:12, 

“blessed is the man who perseveres under trial; because when he has stood the test, 

he will receive the crown of life that God has promised to those that love Him”.

DADs…trials, disappointments, failures…men, we all go through them…

but God does not want us to waiver… regardless of our conditions…

instead God wants His DADsto continue to carry His banner… 

and to be the men…that love Him and always stand firm in Christ! 

DADs…“get in the game”…Today is game day…and so is every day…

God gives you! So…C’mon men…Suit Up!

DADs
One of my all time favorite Christian Groups is 4HIM. One of my all time favorite songs 
that they sing is called the “Measure of a Man”.  
The chorus goes like this:
 
Oh, I say the measure of a man
Is not how tall you stand
How wealthy or intelligent you are
'Cause I've found out the measure of a man
God knows and understands
For He looks inside to the bottom of your heart
And what's in the heart defines the man…
 
DADs...How is your heart conditiontoday? 
How does your heart measure up to God’s standards?
 
Society tells us that the measure of the man is how the world judges us.
Society places us on the world scale.
 
God’s scale is much different. God measures us from the inside out!
For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.
 
DADs...do not let the world measure you…but let God be your judge. 
Do the things that leads to a heart conditionthat focuses on being the man 
God can fully use as His hands and feet. 
Be the DADand the husband God praises. 
Be the man that has a heart for Jesus in all that you say and do!
 
DADs…“get in the game”
Today is game day…and so is every day…
God gives you! So…C’mon DADs…Suit Up!
