Simply put, there are 4 things that I am most grateful for today.
1. The fact that no matter what happens, God will see me through this life.Philippians 4:13Psalm 73:26, "My heart and my flesh may fail, but God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever." ALL
2. For my wife, my brideshe LOVES JesusProverbs 5:18-19 say it best "Let your fountain be blessed, and rejoice in the wife of your youth, a lovely deer, a graceful doe. Let her breasts fill you at all times with delight; be intoxicated always in her love." Not that that's a bad thing!as long as I rejoice in herProverbs 31
3. My amazing Kids!Psalms 127:3 says it best, "Behold, children are a heritage from the Lord, the fruit of the womb a reward."
4. My church!Grace ChurchPEOPLEI cannot tell you how exciting it has been this year to see the hundreds of people who have met Jesus, had their lives changed and found hope in Jesus at Grace Church. It is happening because Grace Church has a passion that "People far from God will discover life in Jesus!!!!"Psalm 73:27 "For behold, those far from you shall perish"That gets me fired up!I take Acts 20:28 serious, "Pay careful attention to yourselves and to all the flock, in which the Holy Spirit has made you overseers, to care for the church of God, which he obtained with his own blood."
I am grateful over all that God has sustained me, and equipped me, to love Him, be a husband, be a father and be a pastor. Thank You Jesus!
