When Every Day Is Father's Day

“Instead, bless—that’s your job, to bless. You’ll be a blessing and also get a blessing.” 1 Peter 3:9 MSG Blessing someone is one of the most powerful things a person can do! It mirrors the way that God captured our hearts when were far away from Him. When you bless someone you honor them and when we honor them it breathes new life into our relationships. Remember that all of creation and our very existence was spoken into life by the Father Himself. Don't be fooled, the words we say really matter. This is the first year I've stayed home on Father's Day with my family and my church and haven't been away at a speaking engagement. This was also the first year that I've gotten through to talk to my step-father on Father's Day over the phone. I've tried many times, but this year is the first year I actually...

What Are You Teaching Your Kids About Love?

This month I've asked my assistant Mary to share with you her experience of sharing God's love with her foster kids. I know you won't be disappointed!  -- Ed   "Either way, Christ's love controls us. Since we believe that Christ died for all, we also believe that we have all died to our old life." 2 Corinthians 5:14 When my husband and I agreed to take in 3 boys through the foster care system (ages 5, 6 & 10) from one of the roughest parts of LA, we were looking for an opportunity to share the love God has given us... not necessarily for an opportunity for God's love to control us. For Valentine's Day, I thought I might take the month of February to talk to the kids about God's love. I designed a heart mobile (details below if you'd like to try it with your kids) that hangs...

A View From the Porch

A View From The Porch
Waiting for Your Lost Kids To Come Home

 

"When he was still a long way off, his father saw him. His heart pounding, he ran out, embraced him, and kissed him. The son started his speech: 'Father, I've sinned against God, I've sinned before you; I don't deserve to be called your son ever again.'

"But the father wasn't listening. He was calling to the servants, 'Quick. Bring a clean set of clothes and dress him. Put the family ring on his finger and sandals on his feet"  (Luke 15:20–22 MESSAGE)

The story of the prodigal son has always been my favorite story revealing the Father's heart: A Father waiting for our return, a Father loving extravagantly, a Father unimpressed by our rehearsed repentance, a Father choosing to love no matter how far we've run, a Father longing for us to return to His house and spend eternity with Him.

This past month the Father gave me the privilege of becoming that kind of father as my wife and I welcomed an amazing young lady into our family.

Jill walked into my office a month ago and shared with me the latest update on this young lady - one of our extended family members. She had worn out her welcome at yet another sobriety home due to a relapse with drugs and alcohol. Jill said, "Honey we have to do something for her, she has nowhere to go, and love has to look like something! I think God wants us to add her to our family." Those words struck my heart, and Jill and I called out to The Lord for an answer! His response was... "Why not you?"

WEDDING DAY BLESSINGS

WEDDING DAY BLESSINGS

"The LORD bless you and keep you; the LORD make his face to shine upon you and be gracious to you; the LORD turn his face toward you and give you peace." (Numbers 6:24-26)

I am often asked about how to bless sons into manhood and daughters into womanhood. But rarely am I asked how to bless one's son or daughter on the day of their wedding. This question was posed to me recently by someone I had blessed at a recent conference, and with my oldest daughter's nuptials just around the corner, I found it a very fitting question indeed.

Marriage Redefined?

"Long before he laid down earth's foundations, he had us in mind, had settled on us as the focus of his love, to be made whole and holy by his love. Long, long ago he decided to adopt us into his family through Jesus Christ. (What pleasure he took in planning this!) He wanted us to enter into the celebration of his lavish gift giving by the hand of his beloved Son." Eph. 1:4–5 MSG (Emphasis mine)

Beloved, in light of the current challenges to traditional marriage from the Supreme Court, I wanted to take a moment to share with you some truths from God's word.
