Happy Thursday, welcome to another post from Odie. I decided to step in and help Dad out with a post. Did you happen to see Dad's post he published on Tuesday? Check it out by clicking here.
This month, Dad marked a huge life milestone for him. He has been preaching for 40 years! Happy 40th preaching anniversary, Dad!
I wanted to take a moment to publicly say I am so proud of my Father. He is a true man of God and takes his calling seriously. Dad's main focus in life is winning the lost and helping people make it through life! I can wholeheartedly say my Dad does his job well!
I have not been around for the full 40 years, but I have been there for most of them. Through the good days and more challenging days, Dad has pressed on! He is a fighter and an overcomer!
Working right by him for over 20 years of his ministry has been a privilege. I have watched him in action firsthand. The size of the crowd has never bothered Dad. He ministers to 3 people or the masses. I have seen him be an instrument in the hand of God countless times in various methods! I am always amazed!
Dad has probably preached more sermons to me than any other preacher. God has used him to speak to my soul, challenge, teach, and encourage me! I love to hear my Daddy preach the word of God!
I have had the privilege of hearing my Dad preach hundreds of times for many years. I never get tired of hearing him. I absolutely love seeing Dad being used by God. It is an honor to get the front-row seat that I have to see the action!
I have proudly been a preacher's kid (PK) all my life. I have no sad song to sing about the PK's life. It truly has been a blessing and not a burden. Life has not been all roses or without bumps. Guess what, nobody has a trouble-free life. I am so grateful for my life!
Once again, Happy 40 years of preaching, Dad! Thanks for living your life for God! You have shown me how to live a good life by example. You have shown me that we can survive hardships! We can trust God to work things out for us! I have watched you help others just by being genuine and committed to God!
Thanks for reading!
