I spoke a lifetime of ‘words of wisdom’ to my children as they were growing up. In retrospect, my words were centered in encouraging them to ‘do good and be good.’ Since I have more deeply moved into an intimate relationship with God, I have become aware of missed opportunities in the encouragement and godly wisdom I could have given to my kids as children. Thankfully, our Father doesn’t place an expiration date on His wisdom. He continuously provides windows of opportunities to pass along new found truths I have learned. I cannot teach what I do not know, so I am grateful for the mistakes I have made. It has given me a message to share with others along the way. Much like David, my messages are, ‘Don’t wait so long to search for a deep relationship with God…Set your mind and your heart on things that are important to God, not to man…Look for God’s initiation in your work, not selfish motives...Recognize that where He has placed you in life is the intention of His mind and heart for you...work hard in these intentions.' Like the song says, 'These are a few of my favorite things.'
'Commit to the Lord whatever you do, and your plans will succeed.’ Prov. 16:3…spoken like a true son of the King!
