“God is able to do far more than we would ever dare to ask or even dream of infinitely beyond our highest prayers, desires, thoughts, or hopes!” (Ephesians 3:20 LB)
RAMBLINGS from Connor’s dad – Our three kids have been a joy to raise. They have had their challenging moments, but those are easily overshadowed by a lifetime of great times together.
I remember a little 5th grader who got it in his head he wanted to see his teacher, Heather Bowman, off to Peru. She was going in to full-time missionary work there and Connor wanted to “escort” her to South America with several dozen other people. Frankly, I didn’t want to go because taking almost two weeks off as a brand new small business owner was insane. But go we did.
We both were blessed beyond our wildest dreams. We saw God at work in so many ways. We came home changed for the better because of that trip. Since then, Connor has been on numerous mission trips both here in the states, and to other countries. It has molded him into the young man he is today.
I had no way of knowing at the time that this little adventure would have such a profound impact on Connor. It helped shape him into the man he would become. Of course the whole time, God was watching, smiling, and thinking “Ted you are going to be so surprised!”.
Now that I think about it, I am sure He says that EVERY day about something going on in my world. Our Heavenly Father is just awesome like that!…
Now to Him who is able to do far more abundantly than all that we ask or think, according to the power at work within us, to Him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, forever and ever. Amen. (Ephesians 3:20)
