The Potter's Hand

A little wisdom and patience goes a long ways.
Today, I search for the holy spirit to move through me to use me for God's purpose. The story today talks about how God challenges us to step up to the plate. In the heat of a moment do we anger quickly or step back and respond as Jesus would?
That phrase that should guide you today fits here nicely... What would Jesus do?
In the heat of the moment today, be slow to anger. Take a deep breathe, step back and ask yourself, what would Jesus do?
Ask God for just 5 minutes of patience to make the "right" choice. At the end of the day, look back and see how God has made a impact in the life of others around you today.
Inspiring you to grow in your faith by touching your heart,
Tim

Father's Day

In the month of June, I begin to focus my attention to that one Sunday a year that is my day to show my kids what being a father is all about.
In the vast library of stories I've collected over the past 8 years doing the daily stories are numerous stories of parents giving up their son. Just as God did for us.
Today's story is from my classics section and a testimony of how the choices and scarifices we make in our faith impact the future of other people's lives.
This is so true for me today. The many emails I've received from all over the world the past few days has humbled my heart. I am so amazed at how many lives the daily stories touch all around the world. How the words I send out everyday in the stories help inspire so many of you on a daily basis with your walk with God.
I am so thankful that God continues to use me to inspire you. How great it is to grow with you in your faith. As your faith grows, my faith grows.
I am so thankful to God for the many blessings he sends me, including you!
Your Friend in Faith,
Tim
