I admit it, I'm an old fogey. Sometimes I get grumpy, and I am getting to where I like things just so. I get irritated with noisy neighbors, I eat my vegetables, and gosh darn it, some days I just feel old.
But on the other hand, I've seen a lot of amazing things in the 38 years God has blessed me with. I've seen people's lives turned around, I've traveled the country, I've begun an incredible journey into being a husband and father- and been blessed with outstanding children (not to mention my one-of-a-kind wife) and so I have nothing to complain about. In the last two years, I've been at my lowest, and my highest, and everything in between. I've stared God in the face and what He reflected back to me was something I'll never forget. It's humbling, it's encouraging, it's exciting, and it's frightening all at the same time. I now know what I am to do with the fleeting days that God has given me. It's just up to me now to live them out, and do the very best I can at it.
I've come to realize that if I'm being the father I'm supposed to be, it doesn't matter if I never get a publishing deal, or a recording contract. Those things are cool, but they're fleeting. They don't last. I am thoroughly happy doing whatever God wants me to do. For now, it's writing on my blog. Tomorrow, it might be writing a national bestseller. I don't know.
All I know is, without God in your life, you don't have much of a life. Do you know where your life is headed?
