New Start

Last weekend I had the wonderful privilege of speaking to a group of couples in Wichita, KS on the subject of Blended Families.  It was refreshing to see so many couples energetic about new opportunities in relationships.  Each person I met had failed at least once in a previous relationship and were determined to get it right the next time, both as a parent and a spouse. 

Failures are a part of life on planet earth.  If you have not failed you probably haven't tried.  The opportunity to learn and grow from each failure, is the opportunity for new strength and experience.  Whether it be a marriage, a job, a project or even parenting, the feelings that accompany failure are a product of putting our faith in ourselves and not in God.  God has proved and will continue to prove His ultimate control and power over our world, and even over our decisions and abilities.  He is not unaware of our place in life, and is still working for good.

As a boy playing baseball every time I went to the plate and struck out, I felt like a failure.  I see this played out in my son as well.  Yet what a great opportunity to help him embrace these perceived failures and to work harder at success, in life.  The focus for me as his father, is the help him see that he is not defined by his plate appearances, but by the man of God he becomes and people he influences.   

Romans 8:28, "And we know that God causes all things to work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose."
