A storm


  It has been awhile since I have posted.  As I look out my window the last few days; I have seen beautiful sunrises, blue skies...  Today the sky is filled with clouds, a storm is coming.  But even through the clouds the light breaks through.
  Our God's light always breaks through!  That light is His Son our Lord Jesus.  
  These last few weeks a storm has come.  A big storm.  A storm that has encompassed nations. A storm that has invoked fear...  Filling our minds with all types of questions.  I hear the news casters it seems bleak... blame game... politician? financial gain...
  But even with all that I see people standing firm doing the recommendations of our leaders. Not really hard things but inconvenient things. Some putting them self in harms way to help other. 
  As believer's in Jesus Christ we need to be at the for front as making a different.  Prayer, even the more! 
Men you/we need to be leading our families more. Start praying, then start praying with you wife; your children...  
  Men start reading the word of God!  Then start reading the word with  your wife, with your children.
  Men start humbling yourself before our God. 2 Chronicles 6:12-42
Confess our/your sin before God.  He is faithful and just. 1 John 1:8-9
  Love is an action word.  Men we need to step up our game!  We need to do more for our God. Loving Him more... Then showing the love of God in our home, starting with our wife, then our children, then to others. 
  You see even in this storm The light of Jesus Christ will shine. In this storm the light of Jesus Christ in us needs to shine!  Remember; where 2 or 3 are gathered in my name I am in the mist of them.Matt.18:20
  A little side encouragement/challenge start reading the bible with your family daily.  Be it only one verse. Maybe missing Sunday because you went to Church together.
