DADs…what’s on your bucket list? 
One of mine when I turned 50 was to get off the couch and run a 5K…3.1 miles.
 
As of this year, I have ran over 10…5Ks runs in the past 9 years and now the new goal is to start running 10Ks.
 
Unfortunately that means I must now train a little harder and go a little longer.  
To do that…I must ensure that my equipment is up to the challenge to prevent me from injury while training.  
In doing this I must evaluate my running shoes to ensure that they are in good enough condition to handle the extra mileage.
 
If not, I need to suit up with some new ones!   
 
DADs…just like running…my training with God…needs regular evaluation too.  
The great thing about working out with God is that…the only equipment you need is your Bible.  
And unlike running shoes…the Bible never wears out!
Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path.
DADs…“get in the game”…
Today is game day…and so is every day…God gives you! 
So…C’mon men…Suit Up!

DADs…at the end of every NASCAR race you will see two unique traditions:
First the winner of the race is usually handed the checkered flag to hold as a banner outside his window as he or she takes a victory lap…then the winning driver typically does a burn out…spinning their car in circles…while creating a cloud of smoke and  black marks from the tires on the track!   
 
Clearly a predictable finish for anybody that has watched more than one NASCAR race!
 
Yet each celebration is a little different. Each victory so sweet. Each driver in the back of his or her mind knowing that this victory came with a price and are sure not to take this moment for granted! Some realize... I am sure…that another victory is never guaranteed and may never come again!
 
DADs…as Christians and drivers in Gods race… the great news is this…we can go to victory lane everyday…knowing that God holds our winnings in his hands…
 
In 1 Corinthians 15:57  Pauls writes:
But thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ!
 
DADs…this Thanksgiving Day…consider 
how you will celebrate your victories and countless blessings that God has given you? 
How will you reflect and give thanks to God for the victory with your family?
Remember with God… we work from the victory…not for the victory!
 
DADs…“get in the game”…
Today is game day…and so is every day…
God gives you! So…C’mon men…Suit Up!

DADs…several months ago, I was watching a NASCAR race on TV. 
After numerous cautions throughout the race…
it looked like there would be a clear winner. 
One driver had what seemed to be a sure victory as he extended 
his lead over the other drivers in the final laps.
 
But then suddenly on the final turn something happened…
not slowing down…he took the curve too wide and crashed into the wall…
allowing another driver to edge him out of the first-place finish.
 
DADs…how often have you been so close to a finish line in your life…
a deadline at work…vacation plans for family…or great intentions 
to complete a task at home?
But for some reason we find ourselves distracted and just like the 
NASCAR driver we take things a little too fast and causing us to fall short of the goal?
 
So DADshear the good news!
For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.
 
The question is then, knowing that we will sometimes fall short of the finish …
will we have the humility to ask God to help us through today’s curves we may face? 
 
DADs…“get in the game”…
Today is game day…and so is every day…
God gives you! So…C’mon men…Suit Up!

DADs…do you know that no matter what position or row that you start from
that you can still win the race in NASCAR?
 
I have become a huge NASCAR fan over the past few years…
and like all real NASCAR fans…l have my favorite drivers. 
 
And what I have learned very quickly… is that… 
although it is usually better to start the race closer to the front…
starting position does not always determine how you finish!
 
And because it is a long race…
leading many laps does not always mean victory either…
because once again…it is a race of strategy and endurance
and if a driver can persevere…he can not only finish in the top ten…
he can actually win it from the back and take the checkered flag!
 
DADs…much like a NASCAR race…
where we start in life or what our current life circumstances are 
does not have to define our final outcome!
 
But the one who looks intently into the perfect law of freedom and perseveresin it, 
and is not a forgetful hearer but a doerwho acts—this person will be blessed in what he does.
 
Life is not what happens to us…it is how we react to it!
Remember its not always how you start…its how you choose to finish!
DADs…do not diminish the finish!
 
DADs…“get in the game”…
Today is game day…and so is every day…
God gives you! 
So…C’mon men…Suit Up!
