"Honor your father and your mother, that your days may be prolonged in the land which the LORD your God gives you.
Hello guys and gals.
I wanted to get this blog in yesterday, but I had no time. I did however do a vlog that I had a hard time uploading, and I finally got it to upload today. Anyways, I have have a testimony. Well Wednesday night at church I was approached by a friend. He told me that he was going to be giving a message at a place called The Refuge, here in Dumas. It is a place where people, that have had problems with drugs, alcohol, and are homeless, can live for a time while they get on their feet. It is a Christian ran establishment. Anyways, my friend asked me if I would prepare some music and sing before he gave his message. I told him I would think about it and get back with him. Thursday morning, as you probably know, I had two teeth pulled. Well I told God, "If I wake up in the morning and I don't have any pain from my extractions, that I would go and play for my friend." Well guess what, I was pain free and I did go and sing some songs for them. I was a big step for me, because I always wanted God to use my musical talents for His kingdom. God is so good.
Now on to scripture. Honor your father and mother. I know there are times this is hard. As an adult I have found that I want to be treated a certain way, and when my mother doesn't respect me and my family, it gets hard to honor her. There are many other equations to this that make this commandment hard to follow. But I guess it is something that we need focus on. Our parents did the best they could with the hand they was dealt, and they still are. I now see how hard it can be, and know that there are times I am flying by the seat of my pants, lol. One thing we have to remember is that our parents are not perfect, like I grew up to believe.
Dear Heavenly Father I want to thank You for Your guidance and Your strength. Lord I ask that You would help me to remember that my mother is only human, and deserves honor simply because she is my mother. Lord please go with me each day and let me remember to put You first. In Jesus' name I pray Amen.
