  • Grateful for 38 Years of Life
  • Today is my 38th birthday.

    And I praise God for all his undeserved goodness to me. I am speechless with gratitude for the Lord’s favor in my life. He has saved me. He has called me to preach. He has blessed me to marry way out of my league. He has blessed me with three wonderful children. He has given me the privilege to serve the saints of a great congregation.

    These blessings are more than I deserve and enough to thank God for the rest of my days. Yet the Lord continually pours blessings and blessing into my life.

    God be praised!
