First of all, I recommend that you go and rent the movie Mozart and the Whale whenever you get the chance. What a lovely breath of fresh air in the midst of a whole bunch of bad movies! :-)

Secondly, I just had to share Streams in the Desert with you tonight, it encouraged me...may it encourage you.

It is possible for believers who are completely willing to trust the power of the Lord for their safekeeing and victory to lead a life of readily taking HIs promises exactly as they are and finding them to be true.

It is possible to daily "cast all your anxiety on him" ( I Peter 5:7) and experience deep peace in the process.
It is possible to have our thoughts and desires of our hearts purified in the deepest sense of the word.
It is possible to see God's will in every circumstance and to accept it with singing instead of complaining.
It is possible to become strong through and through by completely taking refuge in the power of God and by realizing our greatest weakness and the things that upset our determination to be patient, pure, or humble provide an opportunity to make sin powerless over us. This opportunity comes from Him who loves us and who works to bring us into agreement with His will and theereby supplies a blessed sense of His presence and His power.

Oh that this might be true in my life. For it is possible!

That...or just have kids. Nothing brings you into total reliance like bringing children into this INSANE world. Some mornings when I read the news I lose all hope but it is only God's promises that lift me from the pit. Complete and total submission is the only way to truly find strength in child raising.

As a father, I lead by following.
