Tomorrow marks exactly 2 years since my dad passed away. There is so much I desire to say about what a wonderful dad he was, but I truly believe his goal was to glorify Christ in life or death and not himself. So, instead of focusing on what my dad did on this earth, lets talk about what God did. God is love, He died for you and me so that we might have eternal life, and an abundant life in Him on this earth as we die to ourselves and let Him live through us and seek to know what is on His heart. When we remain in Him and He remains in us then our joy will be complete.
One of my dad’s favorite scriptures was Psalm 1:1-3 “Blessed is the man who does not walk in the counsel of the wicked or stand in the way of sinners or sit in the seat of mockers. But his delight is in the law of the Lord, and on his law he meditates day and night. He is like a tree planted by streams of water, which yields its fruit in season and whose leaf does not wither. Whatever he does prospers.”
The following is a video of one of my dads favorite songs “In Christ Alone.” Very powerful!
