For all the Dads and Granddads.

Fear does some damage deep within us. Can we feel so comfortable in fear that we lose sight of the light? Something on my mind recently “we know what we know, do we want to know what we don’t know?” may be this is why when we see the light and feel it warmth & know the power and strength it gives we never want to go back into fear. What will it take to move us from fear to bask in the sunshine?

Something amazing, my wife and I have a great family, 4 ripper children between us and now 2 Grandchildren to keep us young. We are fortunate to have time with them every week and look forward to family time with eagerness. Recently our eldest granddaughter is being toilet trained from nappies to nickers. Right now I bet you are wondering where this is going. The thing is we know how much more comfortable she will feel when she no longer wears a nappy with whatever she may fill it with but we need to preserver and encourage her so she will one day realise the discomfort in the nappy, that for now is all she knows.

Why do we as the crown of Gods creation refuse to put off the nappy and grow into what He has planned for us? Are we too comfortable in the stuff we fill our nappy with?

Lust, greed, selfishness, hate, drugs, addictions, popularity or keeping face even if lies and dishonesty is what it takes. No wonder nappies have a fragrance all of their own.

Something to think about.

 

Thank you my Father, King of my life for persevering with me that I now want to rid myself of my nappy.

Thanks Wayne, another great blog and something for us to ponder. Good responses by Luke and JA to add to the overall effect. Darryl

I think there is a theme running here men :-)

For me, and I just noted it on Luke's post, it's that growing up as Christians or people of faith that really counts. It is that process of SHEDding the old comforts and moving more into God's light.

You know, I feel that God's plan is for us to just shine brightly with his joy so that others will look at us and say, I want to know what those people have that is so different. It is then that we can tell them about Jesus.

Right now, how many of our lives are any different. Are we so full of "crap" , "Lust, greed, selfishness, hate, drugs, addictions, popularity or keeping face even if lies and dishonesty is what it takes" as Wayne so appropriately puts it, that we have lost sight of God's plan for us.

A plan to grow intimate with him and to shine so brightly with his joy and glory that people flock to his light. I often think about this and know that I am just a light bulb and God wants me, and maybe you, to be a thousand flood lights.

Yes, Wayne, something to think about. For me, with still crap to deal with, I think I am out of the nappy stage and I hope to one day graduate from Kindergarten! They say there is a whole new level of truth, joy and love in primary school, I just have to let go of that fear, jump on my bike and ride to school.

Keep growing in the power of the Holy Spirit.

Blessing, Cheers JA

Great stuff wayne. I think there is a theme running at the moment. I was changing matildas nappy this morning and she had done a big crap. I said 'oh good girl that'll make you feel better.!' I think God says the same thing when we get our crap out! We to are trying Ollie at the toilet training. Perseverance and encouragement I think is the go. We know it'll feel better without the crap but we need to keep encouraging others to do so too and take off the nappies. Great blog mate. Gbu Luke
