Show Notes:


  • 0:59 - "As turn the calendar and look to the year 2022, I want to take an episode and set up some worship and a perspective of how big God is and how little our current stresses are..."
  • 2:37 - My Daughters Share a Video Recording to encourage mommy to trust God to Provide
  • 3:10 - Matthew 6:25-27 - “Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothes?26 Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they?27 Can any one of you by worrying add a single hour to your life[a]?
  • 3:50 - "My daughters helped remind us of this promise. That worry does not help things. Worry is not setting us up for God's best. Worry is trusting in ourselves, and I want to start the year 2020 trusting God"
  • 4:22 - This song is by Sean Curran, and it's called bigger than I thought 
  • 4:38 - Guys, our heavenly father is for us. Our Heavenly Father wants to remind us this is not about us figuring out what we can accomplish under our own strength. And there's the bridge to this song talks about I will rest in the father's hands, leave the rest in the father's hands like we don't have to carry it all that we are called to store or touch. We're dads of action DadAWESOME. We're not sitting back and just saying it'll all be OK, whatever. But God does not want us to start 2020 to God does not want us to to lead this fatherhood journey from a place of we're stressed out, we're worried and we're relying on ourselves.


Bigger Than I Thought

Speak to me
When the silence steals my voice
You understand me
You understand me
Come to me
In the valley of unknowns
You understand me
You understand me

You understand me, God
You understand me

So I throw all my cares before You
My doubts and fears don’t scare You
You’re bigger than I thought You were
You’re bigger than I thought
So I stop all negotiations
With the God of all creation
You’re bigger than I thought You were
You’re bigger than I thought You were

I believe
But help my unbelief
You understand me
You understand me
Help me reach
The faith that’s underneath
You understand me
You understand me

I will rest
In the Father’s hands
Leave the rest
In the Father’s hands

  • 10:27 Here's what I think happens when we have a small perspective of God and we have this big perspective of ourselves and the weight that we need to carry. I think we make a mess of things. We make a mess of our lives, of our families... when we put all the weight on our own shoulders. We trust in ourselves
  • 11:00 - Story of my daughter Zara and the mess she makes when she eats
  • 13:56 - "This is my life. God is trying to give me good gifts at a good rate, at a good pace that I can handle for my age and my responsibility level, right? God is trying. He's setting us up with blessings. "
  • 14:23 "I'm not managing stresses. I'm a manager of good gifts, good blessings. That's what I'm managing. It's so easy to complain about what's going on in life. When I am managing God's good gifts that he is, he is trickled into my life and I'm complaining about it. Like, it's so common that we we enter a worry and we make our lives a mess because we don't trust our heavenly father. We don't trust him."
  • 15:06 - 1 Peter 5:1-11 (Advice for Elders and Young Men)
  • 1And now, a word to you who are elders in the churches. I, too, am an elder and a witness to the sufferings of Christ. And I, too, will share in his glory when he is revealed to the whole world. As a fellow elder, I appeal to you:
  • 2Care for the flock that God has entrusted to you.
  • Watch over it willingly, not grudgingly—
  • not for what you will get out of it, but because you are eager to serve God.
  • 3Don’t lord it over the people assigned to your care, but lead them by your own good example.
  • 4And when the Great Shepherd appears, you will receive a crown of never-ending glory and honor.
  • 5In the same way, you who are younger must accept the authority of the elders. And all of you, dress yourselves in humility as you relate to one another, for
  • “God opposes the proud but gives grace to the humble.”a
  • 6So humble yourselves under the mighty power of God, and at the right time he will lift you up in honor.
  • 7Give all your worries and cares to God, for he cares about you.
  • 8Stay alert! Watch out for your great enemy, the devil. He prowls around like a roaring lion, looking for someone to devour.
  • 9Stand firm against him, and be strong in your faith. Remember that your family of believers all over the world is going through the same kind of suffering you are.
  • 10In his kindness God called you to share in his eternal glory by means of Christ Jesus.
  • So after you have suffered a little while, he will restore, support, and strengthen you, and he will place you on a firm foundation.
  • 11All power to him forever! Amen.

    17:39 - "I pray that we would start the year 2022 to with a posture of worship versus a posture of worry, a posture of trusting God versus a posture of struggle and trying to do it on her own. A posture of God's bigness. He is so much bigger and we need to keep that perspective of he knows best. His ways are bigger and wider and deeper and strong. Guys, we have a limited perspective. Let's choose to worship versus worry."
