"And I will be your Father, and you will be my sons and daughters, says the Lord Almighty." 2nd Corinthians 6:18
 
A couple weekends ago I had the opportunity to attend a weekend call "Wild at Heart." A weekend that lead us to think about deep things in our lives; wounds, attacks from the devil, and what lies we accepted as truth. We talked about our need as men is to be the hero, provider, fixer, when this isn't our job at all. It is to be a son; it is to walk alongside a Father that we cannot be. Alongside a Father that wants us to be a son that comes to Him for advice, help, comfort, affirmation, and restoration.  
 
My earthly father was the best father he knew how to be, I can never remember getting a spanking from him. But there was something missing, he wasn't a perfect father, nor am I, for we are not perfect people because of the genetic sin nature we are all born with. But we do have a Father that is perfect and is inviting us to be His daughters and sons.    
 
Again, I had a great dad and I believe many of the men in prison would not probably be incarcerated if they had a father like I had. But a lot of the men I have talked to have, among many things, have a feeling of being abandoned. They also have been abused or have been severely physically punished by their earthly father. This can affect a person in a variety of ways, but I believe it is a contributing factor that leads to a life of drugs and alcohol. It is the desire of the devil "to kill, steal, and destroy" our relationship with our Father in Heaven. It is our relationship with God as our Father that he hates the most.
 
But we do have a Father that is perfect, and He is inviting us to be His daughters and sons, a good Father that loves us unconditionally. He invites all of us, despite our imperfections, to be His daughters and sons and call Him Abba, "Daddy." A hard thing for many, because of a tendency to relate God as a Father the way we see our earthy fathers. "And I will be your Father, and you will be my sons and daughters, says the Lord Almighty." 2nd Corinthians 6:18.
 
An absolute truth. "And you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free." John 8:32

Good morning!
 
As I was in prayer this morning, I was thinking about what to do for a devotional thought and 2nd Timothy chapter 3 came to mind. Verse 16 + 17 are two of the most important verses in all the Bible. "All scripture is breathed out by God and is profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness, that the man of God maybe complete, equipped for every good work."  
 
Wow! When I hear people say that Bible verses were for that time and not for now, I cringe because of scriptures like this. All 66 books of the Bible are important! That's why it's important for us to know what God's Word says.  
 
I encourage you all today to be in the word. Open your Bibles and ask the Holy Spirit to teach you. The Bible is our instruction book. When you are struggling, turn to God in prayer and open his word. If you don't know where to start, just ask someone from the church or one of your Christian friends like me ��...  
 
We all are in this together. Like the scripture says all scripture is breathed out by God! All scripture is profitable! This means that every single verse in the Bible can be utilized in our lives!  
 
The four things that are listed in this verse are self-explanatory, but we tend to forget how important is to learn daily from God. So use the Word for teaching! Use the Word for reproof! Use the Word for correction! And use the Word for training in righteousness! So that you my brothers and sisters can be complete! And I love this word "thoroughly equipped" for every good work!  
 
What amazing instructions for us today! Have a great day and God bless you!
Teach me, God, what it means to live by Your riches today. You possess all I truly need!

Opportunity!
 
We have had a generous donor bless Kingdom Boundaries with a high quality camera and equipment (lights, remote microphone, etc). In addition, we have the needed software to edit photos and videos.
 
The issue is that our staff has limited experience in photography. We would like to do a better job of getting high quality photos and/or videos (testimonies) of our residents. Pictures and videos would help us explain our vision to those that know little about Kingdom Boundaries. It would also help us tell our ever continuing story to those that are familiar with KB.
 
KB would be so blessed if we could find one or more individuals that could help us with taking pictures and doing video for us, and possibly do editing. If you or anyone you know would be interested in helping with this, please contact Kevin at KB. (kevin.h@kingdomboundaries.org)
 
Thank you for your consideration of this opportunity!
God gives us second chances.
