DADs,
This week I am talking about the similarities of my new found obsession NASCAR and our life in general.
 
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, to be in control of your race you 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 men…Suit Up!

BE THE DAD TODAY!

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 than 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 boldness for 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!

BE THE DAD TODAY!

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 heartache 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, we all go through them, but God does not want us to waiver regardless of our conditions. Instead God wants His DADs to 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!

BE THE DAD TODAY!

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 condition today? 
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!
Matthew 6:21- "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 condition that focuses on being the man 
God can fully use as His hands and feet. 
Be the DAD and 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 men…Suit Up!

BE THE DAD TODAY!
