an outlier father

Watch this a short & really amazing video of a  legendary father

After you watch this, consider that he’s most likely the ONLY single dad that our malnutrition workers have ever met in Angola in more than 15 years of work there.  Moses is totally amazing!!!!

 

 

is rest directly proptional to trust???

I’ve been thinking about trust alot – trusting God.  if i were to be truthful w myself, i need to get better with trusting God & this is becoming increasingly evident to me as i look at the things & people in which i’ve been trusting.  if you’re like me, we put our trust in things that seem to be normal: mate, parents, friends, abilities, education, experience, . . . .  We also know that all of these things & people will & have disappointed us from time to time.  At various times, if i’m honest, i’ve also been disappointed in God – at least in the short run. 

Here’s something i’m becoming really convinced about:  trust is an essential component for intimacy.  i also think that intimacy & rest are inter-connected.  I’ve been musing on these things, this morning, based on the conversation between Moses & God in Ex 33:13-14, where Moses says, “‘If you are pleased with me, teach me your ways so I may know you and continue to find favor with you. Remember that this nation is your people.”  14 The LORD replied, “My Presence will go with you, and I will give you rest.”

still thinking 🙂
