Convex Mirrors…

10 09 2013

Just today I was driving in my truck and was saved by a unique piece of equipment that i believe all vehicles need, a convex mirror. I was driving up Maize Rd when I used all my other mirrors to get a look to see what was around me. It all looked clear, nobody in site, so I thought I would make a lane change, and then I checked my convex mirror. I am glad I did because of a car that had been driving in my blind spot that I could only see in the convex mirror. If I hadn’t of checked that mirror, I would have swiped the little cars front end right off their car. I do not think I could drive my large truck without my convex mirrors. The convex mirror cannot see very far, it is only for up close use. It’s shape is odd, so until you get use to using it, it can be hard to know what you are seeing or trusting what you see in it. But it’s one job is to allow you to see in your blind spot. A spot that is around your vehicle that is almost blind to you unless you can spin your head all the way around.

In thinking that through, right after being saved by my little mirror, it made me think of the importance of having people in my life that act as convex mirrors. People who help me to see the blind spots in my life that need attention. Those areas you need to be held accountable in. Areas I think are fine but may not be honoring others or God. Areas I just cannot see. Areas where I am headed in one direction but I am about to run over someone and can be warned before someone gets hurt.

I am thankful for people God has placed in my life who have helped me grow to where I am now and for people who are currently helping me grow to the next level.

So if you do not have a person in your life to help you see in your blind spots, find one. The problem, you just cannot run to Autozone to buy one like you can the convex mirror.

Remember – Proverbs 27:17 “As iron sharpens iron, so one person sharpens another.”

Be open to trusting some to help sharpen you!

Part of God’s Story…

16 04 2012

Been reading this book called “Spiritual Parenting” by Michelle Anthony. I has been a great book in helping me think through help parents to be their child’s spiritual leader.

The chapter I was reading last night was on God’s Big Story. It summarized the redemptive story of God from creation to Christ riding in on the white horse. It made me really process how I look at the Bible. The Bible is not something from the past. The Bible is not an old history book. The Bible is a living book of God’s redemptive story, it is not finished yet, the end has not been finished. What’s cool is the fact that I am a part of the redemptive story. Until Christ comes back, I get to play a part in His story.

When I accepted Christ as my personal Savior I was written into the story. Each time I share my faith and someone comes to believe in Jesus Christ, what He did for them, I and them are a part of God’s redemptive story. Every day that I serve in ministry, I am written into the Big God Story!

The Bible is not a book of the past, it is a living book that is still alive today awaiting you to live it and be a part of it.

I want to challenge you to help your children to look at the Bible as a book that is still being written and they are a part of it.

Parents, if you would like to read a great book pick up “Spiritual Parenting” by Michelle Anthony.

Now go make an impact in your child’s life!
