Arise!

 

 

Life may not be exactly the way you want, but it's the way it is. So we have to make the best out of it.

 
Full disclosure:  I haven't exactly figured out how to do this yet, but I'm trying every single day.
 
I failed at it last night while sitting at the ballpark watching my son who is 4 learn how to run the bases in the right order, and how to throw a ball.  It was bittersweet.
 
I admit, jealousy rose up inside of me from all the boys that had a Dad there to help.  My son doesn't have that. I am  shaking off feelings of depression about being in a situation that I never expected to be in.
 
But, this morning, I opened my bible to this verse and it reminded me to keep going. It reminded me to make the best out of baseball season, and this season in my life.

 

Arise, shine for your light has come, and the glory of the Lord rises upon you. - Isaiah 60:1

 

Arise from the depression and prostration in which circumstances have kept you - rise to a new life! Shine, be radiant with the glory of the Lord, for your light has come, and the glory of the Lord has risen upon you

You've planted a thought in my head with your cry for help. What are we as men doing in the local church to teach boys what it's like to be a man of God, particularly those without fathers or father figures in the home?
Thank you! Your cry for help is clear and is ringing across the American landscape. Yes, your sons need to learn how to hit a baseball and throw a football too, and what a great introduction into manhood — by being their for them.
