My dad's job requires him to travel daily all over Michigan and fix and maintain the computer equipment in courtrooms. Every 10,000 miles he does on the van (it's work-issued) he has to go in and get an oil change. That's when he and I get to go on our Daddy/Daughter Dates :)
This last weekend, he finally got to get an oil change!! So we went out to Penara bread as we waited. I realized on the way home what a spiritual energizer these dates are for me! I hope that I am/can be as encouraging to him as he is to me on these dates-- he totally got me pumped for the Lord. Not that I was out of gas, but now I'm revving at full speed! What a blessing is my daddy! lol
Anyway, in the van on the way there, he handed me his IPhone (also work issued !!!!!) and made me read this email. It was such a blessing and totally practical, I had him email it to me so I could post it here.
Devotional thought from the messages of Adrian Rogers
1 Peter 3:4b - “... even the ornament of a meek and quiet spirit, which is in the sight of God of great price.”
Are you a woman struggling with the way you look? We all know that women want to be beautiful, especially to their husbands and boyfriends, but so often women think that beauty is found at a cosmetics counter, on a dress rack, or in a jewelry box. Those things are corruptible, and what’s in vogue today is out of fashion when next year’s supermodels hit the runway. The only thing that will make you more beautiful, day after day, is what you nurture within yourself: serenity. The ornament of a meek and quiet spirit is worth far more than the most expensive jewel you can wear around your neck.
Stand in front of the mirror today. Imagine Jesus by your side, and ask Him to create in you a gentle and quiet spirit of love.
I hope this is a blessing to you today, dear sisters!
