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!

To follow the “Suit Up” Movement…
