# #1 Daddy’s girl

Genesis 2:24 says, “For this reason a man shall leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and they will become one flesh.”

I always knew this day would come. I began praying for my children’s spouses when they were born. A Dad looks forward to his sons finding a wife. As for his daughters finding husbands…not so much.

Every dad knows that one day “that guy” will come visit him and ask for his daughter’s hand in marriage. I just didn’t think it would happen this soon. I know that every girl dreams of getting married. I am not an expert on women,  but after living with three for many years now, I have learned that little girls grow up waiting on Prince Charming.

All girls want to find “Mr. Right” and live “happily ever after.” Every girl longs for the Cinderella story. It is played out over and over in the young woman’s mind and in a hundred chick flicks.

Most of the romantic comedies today are top grossing films because women love to see them played out. Cinderella is beautiful, Prince Charming is a handsome gentleman and perfect happiness is just a kiss away.

Well, it has happened. Prince Charming came to see me. He invited me to breakfast. After an hour of small talk, he asked me the question. ( I had already known in my heart why he wanted to have breakfast with me.) I knew what was coming. I quickly tried to imagine how I would feel.

Here it goes…He is asking for my first born daughter’s hand in marriage. He is asking for “Daddy’s girl”. He is asking to marry my little girl (who is almost 22).

This was hard. Honestly, it is still hard. I told him yes. I said yes to a guy who has been radically saved, loves Jesus and just recently started pastoring his first church. I said yes to this guy who passionately articulated to me how much he loves my daughter; is promising to take care of her and make her happy. I have tears in my eyes as I am writing this. This is my little girl.

Last night he asked her to marry him and she said “yes.” Kayla, my little girl is now officially engaged and will be married next August.

If you know Kayla, you know that she is a very beautiful young woman. She is actually stunning. Not only is she beautiful on the outside, she is beautiful on the inside.

She is sweet and caring. She has the amazing ability to be gentle and sensitive but she can also be one of the stubborn, toughest people you will ever meet!

She loves Jesus and has always taken a very bold stand for him. She WILL confront and correct when things aren’t “right.”

She loves ministry, especially working with children. She cares about people. She will be an incredible Pastor’s wife.

Kayla has kept herself pure and she is a virgin. I am so proud of her for that commitment.

She has turned out to be an incredible young woman who loves the Lord.

I believe most parents all have the same desires. They want their kids to grow up and lead successful lives. Lives with purpose and conviction. They want them to make wise decisions and live Christ centered lives that bring glory to God. My Kayla has done that.

I am proud of her and excited for her. I know that she is happy, so I am happy. Daddy’s girl has grown up. Pray for me! I am going to have to walk my girl down the aisle, give her away and then conduct the marriage ceremony. I am crying again…

Congratulations Kayla and Kenny. I love you both and really am excited about your future.

And Kayla…you will ALWAYS BE Daddy’s girl. (Tears again)

#2 Defining moments

I remember 26 years and 10 months ago being at New Hanover Hospital in Wilmington, N.C. It was August 10, 1984 to be exact. I was getting ready to experience one of greatest changes in my life that I have ever known.

I really had no clue what that day would mean to me and how significant the impact the birth of my first born son would have on my life.

On that day I got a wake up call…it did not come via the iPhone, it came at the hands of Doctor O’Quinn, a 70+ year old veteran OBGYN who handed me my 8 pound, 7 oz. baby boy. My life was never the same!

I had heard people say that when you have a child, you will understand unconditional love; you will understand sacrifice; and you will forever be impacted by the love that you have for your child.

I didn’t get ‘it’ until that moment that I first held my son. Then, it hit me. That overwhelming sense of love and pride…the feeling that, “this is ours, we did this – wow!!”

Then the feeling of responsibility…Not just the provision aspect – food, clothing and shelter, but the teaching aspect. The “being a man” aspect.

Parenting would prove to be the single greatest challenge of my young life, and after 26 years and six children later, that still rings true today.

So why am I writing about this specific event? Why the reminiscing and nostalgia today? Why are my eyes welling up with tears as I write these words? Well, something pretty significant is happening again today on June 13.

This time as I write, I am in Atlanta, GA at NorthSide hospital. My wife, my youngest daughter and I just arrived with a Chick Fillet biscuit for my first born son who is getting ready to watch his first born son come in to the world. I am experiencing dejevu as I look at the graph showing my sweet daughter in law’s contractions and as I listen to that amazing sound of my grandson’s heartbeat on the monitor. All of these sights and sounds from so long ago are arresting my attention.

Those who know me will tell you that patience isn’t my strong suit, but today I am waiting with great joy for the birth of my grandson like a kid waiting for Christmas!

Update: At 6:20 pm, Finnegan Michael Flockhart was born. Finn weighed 6 lbs. and 6 oz. and he was 20 inches long. He is perfect!

Words cannot come close to describing the feelings that I am experiencing. My wife and I are overcome with emotions – joy, gratitude, pride, excitement, etc…

I have a grandson! All of you grandparents have been telling me for years how wonderful this is – you were right! It is amazing!

Just like 26 years ago, I have experienced a miraculous life change. The impact that little Finn has had on me in less than 24 hours is clearly a defining moment.Time is measured in minutes but life is measured in moments…defining moments.

Have you had any lately?

#3 – Johnny Hunt – Living For Others

#3 – Johnny Hunt – Living For Others

This week, my wife and I (and daughter and son in in law ) had the amazing privilege to attend the Timothy Barnabas conference that my pastor, friend, mentor, “older brother”, “father” and life- long ministry partner, Dr. Johnny and his wife Janet puts on.

It is a ministry to instruct and encourage people in ministry. I left instructed and encouraged!

Johnny Hunt has done more for me and my family than any other person in the world. I could write a book, not a blog on the investment that he has made in me.I am forever grateful.

I have always said that Johnny Hunt is one in a billion (not million!). There are not seven people on the planet like him.

Johnny Hunt is one of the greatest encouragers that I know. He has the ability to inspire you, motivate you and challenge you all at once. After spending just a few moments with him, I find myself ready to change the world.

Pastor Johnny baptized me 30 years ago after I received Christ in Wilmington, N.C. I soon surrendered to preach under his ministry and he later ordained me. He gave me my first opportunity in ministry and he has remained a great friend and supporter to my family and I, through the good and the bad times. Johnny Hunt is a rare jewel.

Ralph Waldo Emerson said, “Every great institution is the lengthened shadow of a single man.” That statement is so true of the great First Baptist Church of Woodstock and also Timothy Barnabas.

Johnny’s leadership is known all over the world, yet he would quickly bestow credit to others.

Anyone who knows Pastor Johnny knows that he lives for others . His life has been dedicated to the Great Commandment and the Great Commission – to love God and love others.

Few people can say with the Apostle Paul, “Follow me as I follow Christ.” Pastor Johnny can say that with integrity. We follow him because he reminds us of Jesus…always giving of himself to help someone else.

Mother Teresa was often quoted as saying “ a life not lived for others is not a life.” Johnny Hunt’s life is about others.

I know of no-one that is more giving, more selfless, more caring and compassionate, and more loving than Pastor Johnny.

We all know the goal in life is not to live forever…the goal in life is to create something that will live forever. Johnny Hunt has not only done that in the church, but in the lives of thousands of individuals. I am grateful to be one of those lives that has been changed.

Words can never truly express my gratitude and my love to my friend and Pastor, Johnny Hunt. Tears flow down my face as I write this because I know what kind of friend this man has been and the investment that he has made in my life.

Pastor Johnny, thanks for living for others and showing us all a true example of Jesus.

#4 – Take a Step

In the book of Numbers, chapter 13, we read a story of 13 men being sent out as spies into the land flowing with milk and honey…the Promise Land. The land that God had already promised to His people.

We see in this passage in Numbers where these men are instructed to go and we are also given each man’s name and what tribe they are from. Talk about accountability! Talk about your name on the dotted line! Everyone knew what these men were getting ready to do.

So, off they went to check out the land. Two of the men came back to give a great report. These two men were full of faith; they were excited at the possibility of a better day and a better life.

But just in many cases, the general consensus from the majority of the men that were sent out was that they did not have the faith to possess what God had already given them.

D.L. Moody said, “God never made a promise that was too good to be true, however every promise must be claimed by faith.”

The people stayed in the wilderness for 40 years, roaming about aimlessly, missing out on all that God had for them.

No decision was made to move forward and possess the land because the 10 spies had the same problem that most people have..perhaps today, you find yourself “stuck” and facing these same issues:

1. They forgot the past
Exodus 1:14 says, “And they made their lives bitter with hard bondage – in mortar, in brick, and in all manner of service in the field. All their service in which they made them serve was with rigor.”

Do you want to live the same way you’ve always lived? Do you want to be stuck in the past living a life that God never intended for you to live?

2. They were settled with the present
They were comfortable and they were satisfied with status quo. They asked Moses, “why can’t we just stay here in the wilderness”? Isn’t that where most people are?

The average person would choose to stay where it is comfortable , safe and predictable instead of finding out what God has for them on the other side!

3. They feared the future
They didn’t want to step out and take the risk. The 10 spies saw pitfalls and problems.

Joshua and Caleb were the 2 spies who had faith – they saw potential and promise. Some people see giants but others see how big God is.

There is no need to be afraid of the future, Jesus has already gone there and He is waiting on you!

Every journey begins with a single step …step up, step out and embrace all that God has for you!

#5 – Don’t Lose Hope!

#5 – Don’t Lose Hope

Man can live about 60 days without food, 7 days without water, 9 minutes without air, but only about 1 second without hope!

The worst state a person can be in is hopelessness. That feeling that you get when you are so discouraged that you believe your situation will never change and you’ll always be stuck in the rut that you’re currently in. No one can survive without hope.

Maybe right now you think that you have no hope, or maybe you’ve given up on the thought that things could be different. Maybe you’ve heard yourself says things like… “My spouse will never change“, “My kids will never straighten up“, “I will always struggle financially“, “I will never get control of my life“, “My body will never get well“, or “I will never get victory over this particular sin“.

Does any of that sound familiar? Have you given up hope? I want you to know you are not alone. I know what it feels like to be hopeless, discouraged, depressed, and believe that you are ‘futureless’. Maybe you’re thinking “why try?” “why go on?” “why bother?”. Listen to me! Stop that way of thinking!

Jeremiah 29:11 says “For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord. Plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you a hope and a future.”

Our lives are not in the hands of some invisible force or blind fate. Our lives are in the hands of God. He has the whole world in his hands…that includes your life!

God has a plan for you. You may not be able to see or understand it, but God is working in your behalf.

You have a Heavenly father who is madly in love with you! He is head over hills, crazy in love with you!

Trust him, for He is trustworthy. Proverbs 3:5-6 says “Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding, in all your ways acknowledge Him and he will direct your paths.” Put your trust and hope in Him! Hope never abandons you.. You abandon hope.

God will never leave you or forsake you. God is working in you, He is shaping you and molding you into His own image. Jesus is doing something deep in you.

Where many people miss God is when they believe He is punishing them. They begin to think He doesn’t care.

Not true! He is working in your life. You may be broken, but He is healing you. Hosea 6:1 says “Come, let us return to the Lord. He has torn us to pieces, but He will heal us. He has injured us, but He will bind up our wounds.”

I know the pain and pressures are real, but do not lose hope!

#6 – Start Swinging Again

Every person’s life is filled with mistakes, errors and failures. Failure isn’t the problem. We all fail. How we interpret failure is the problem. How you view failure will be one of the most important life altering practices you ever put in place.

Failures do not reflect your overall character, competence, intelligence or identity. You are going to fail…you are going to make some major blunders. I certainly have had my share of misjudgments, bad decisions and emotionally driven rationalizations.

Failure is a part of life, it’s a part of the learning process so make the most of your next failure! Learn from it! The key is learning from our mistakes.

There is a major difference in “I failed” and “I’m a failure.” If you are not careful, you will wallow in past failures and never recover. You can allow what happened to you a year ago, five years ago, even 20 years ago to affect the way you live right now. You must move on! Failure is not fatal and it is not final!

Let me share a great story that deals with failure: It happened on baseball’s opening day in 1954. The Milwaukee Braves and the Cincinnati Reds played each other, and a rookie for each team made his major-league debut during that game.

The rookie who played for the Reds hit four doubles and helped his team win with a score of 9-8. The rookie for the Braves went 0 for 5.

The Reds player was Jim Greengrass, a name you probably haven’t heard. The other guy, who didn’t get a hit, might be more familiar to you. His name was Hank Aaron and as you know, he went on to become one of baseball’s biggest legends.

You need to start swinging again. Stop allowing your history to control your destiny. Every past failure is preparation for some future opportunity that God has for you.

Jeremiah 29:11 says, “For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” That is an incredible promise!

If you think you are finished and there is no life after failure, let me assure you…there IS life after failure! Jesus said, “I have come to give you – LIFE!”

You blew it, it was major, it was bad, really bad, so repent and claim I John 1:9 where Jesus says, “If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness.”

Move on and start swinging again!

#7 – Stay On The Wall

#7 Stay on the wall

Nehemiah is one of my favorite people in the Bible, and my favorite book in Old Testament.

It’s not really a book of mighty miracles. Nehemiah didn’t see any ocean waters part down the middle, he didn’t experience God talking to him through a burning bush or calling fire down from heaven.

He never healed anyone and no one was ever raised from the dead through him.

Nehemiah is an ordinary guy with an extraordinary vision for God to build some walls. You read that right…his vision was to build the walls that had been torn down.

Each chapter is an action packed Hollywood blockbuster adventure! The action in this story is amazing. Just a man with a heart for God and a heart for people. Nehemiah wanted to be faithful to finish the task that God gave him.

As we read the book of Nehemiah, we find him growing discouraged. The pressure was on from all sides.

He was being attacked personally to the point that no building was taking place in chapter five. There was a stalemate taking place, no progress was being made…nothing on the outside was really happening.

That’s a tough place to be,but remember that just because you don’t see God working on the outside doesn’t mean that He’s not working on the inside!

In chapter six, the people return to work but so does the enemy! The critics come out once again.

When you are attempting to do something for God, be prepared…you will always be attacked. People who you thought loved you and cared about you will turn against you.

This will cause deep discouragement, insecurity, anxiety, frustration and even pain.

We see Nehemiah in chapter six doing what God called him to do – building the wall. The enemy rises up and tries to distract Nehemiah so the work of God will be hindered. He is accused of having wrong motives, playing politics and other things.

Nehemiah stood his ground and made the tough decisions. Those decisions are never easy, they are not popular and are usually misunderstood.

Nehemiah’s goal was not to win a popularity contest but to please the Lord by staying on the wall and completing the task.

I love verse 3 of chapter 6 in Nehemiah where it says, “So I sent messengers to them, saying, “I am doing a great work, so that I cannot come down. Why should the work cease while I leave it and go down to you?”

He won’t come down off the wall! He CAN’T come down off the wall!

The enemy is persistent though. Verse 4 says, “But they sent me this message four times, and I answered them in the same manner.” The enemy will not let up! Your task, your calling, your purpose is too important so don’t come down off the wall.

No matter how crazy it gets, no matter how frustrated you become, no matter how many sleepless nights you have…don’t come down! Stay on that wall and fight with everything that you have and everything that you are.

Remember, you might not see any miracles happening on the outside but I guarantee that one is taking place on the inside.

Stay on that wall!

#8 – You Got a Second?

Diogenes was a 3rd century biographer of the Greek Philosophers. Though I don’t agree with a lot of what he said, I do love his quote, “Time is the most valuable thing a man can spend.”

How do you spend your time? Is your day wasted away with non-essential things?

Do you struggle at the end of the day wondering where the time went?

Do you find yourself in a state of panic most of the time, trying to complete a project or keep up with never ending appointments?

Every second is important. Every second is unique. Every second is fleeting.

Use your time wisely. Are you making the most out of one of the most precious gifts of life…time? A.W. Tozier said, “when you kill time, remember that it has no resurrection.”

What about your family? When is the last time you made ‘real’ time for them? Have you dated your spouse lately? If you don’t make the time, it won’t happen.

What about that quality time with your children? Trust me, I know about this – I have six children! I can remember bringing each one of my kids home from the hospital as newborns…changing diapers (okay, maybe not many!), the cute little onesie pajamas with ‘feet’ in them, having those babies grab hold of my finger with their little hands, hearing them say “Da-Da” and the countless other memories that are so awesome!

Then before I knew it, my oldest son was married and in June, I will be a grandfather. Wow, where did time go?

Ovid said, “neither the wave that has passed can be recalled nor the hour which has passed return again.” Hey, you got a second or are you too busy trying to find that lost piece of information or pursuing the American dream or surfing the internet.

Ecclesiastes 3:1 says, “There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under the heavens.” The time is NOW for you to make a change in how you approach this issue of time.

Here are my top 5 suggestions to help you deal with your time:

1. Make a list of the things that only you can do. (things that cannot be delegated) Prioritize them according to your purpose in life. There should never be more than 4 top priorities in one day.
2. Create a not to do list. Drop some things – don’t do them anymore!
3. Schedule everyday – everything! Put on the calendar date nights, family nights, alone time, everything! If you don’t handle your schedule, someone else will and time will disappear.
4. Guard your time on line – email, Facebook, Twitter, etc…You will be surprised to find how much of your time is spent on these things.
5. Review all of your work at the end of the week and then plan for next week!

We don’t need more time, we need to manage the time that we have more effectively. Why don’t you make time right now to begin practicing these suggestions that I have given you.

You got a second?

#9 – Fight For Your Marriage

In our culture, everyone is searching for “Mr/Mrs, Right.”

Most ladies are daydreaming about her knight in shining armor and looking for a combination of Edward Cullen, Brad Pitt and Will Smith.

Most men are on the hunt for that sexy, gorgeous, funny girl with a killer smile.

Women want a romantic, sensitive, funny, sweet guy. Men dream of that beautiful woman with that beautiful body that he will marry and have sex three times a day with…and yes, he is still dreaming.

Mr. And Mrs. Right get married, have some kids, go to work, pay the mortgage, etc… You get the picture- life happens!

The problem is, we dated perfect people. We had a perfect picture and expectations for a perfect marriage. Those expectations were not realistic.

Most couples go into their marriage believing that if they can marry Mr. or Mrs. Right, that will be the answer to all their problems and believe that “love will keep us together.” Don’t get me wrong, I’m a hopeless romantic and I believe in love. You have to have love.

I’m not talking about silly, Ooey-gooey, emotion only type love. I am talking about commitment, honoring your vows and hanging in when things get tough.

I am speaking of a I Corinthians, chapter 13, verses 4-7 kind of love. You know, the kind of love that bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, and endures all things.

Too many couples today are throwing in the towel and giving up on their marriages. They become selfish and immature. This isn’t high school! Grow up, this is your life, this is your marriage! Remember that you made a covenant to God and to your spouse.

I’m not saying that it will all be easy, you will have to fight for your sanity many times! If you’re married, you will face disappointment and dissatisfaction many times. You will wonder at times, “do I really love this person?”

Fight for your marriage- hell is trying to destroy your family!

Love your spouse; Call each other just to say hello; Date once a week; Get away quarterly; Communicate openly and honestly; Fight to stay together; Put Jesus first; look in the mirror and not out the window.

Ask God to change you and not your spouse.

Fight for your marriage!

#10 – Does God Care About Football?

If you are a sports fan, you are very familiar with Tim Tebow. If you are not a sports fan, the chances are still extremely high that you are still familiar with Tim Tebow.

The story that used to be reserved for ESPN and Fox Sports has now spilled over into the national news and is capturing the attention of people who have never watched a football game in their lives.

Tebow has been thrust into the public spotlight for a number of reasons. He came onto the scene as the phenomenal college quarterback who led the Florida Gators to a national championship and was the recipient of the coveted Heisman trophy.

Then he entered the world of professional football becoming the starting quarterback for the Denver Broncos. The “haters” appeared immediately.

Tebow was criticized, his athletic ability was questioned and many said he could not make it in the NFL. Sports commentators have passionately debated Tebow’s NFL potential and lines have been drawn in the sand.

As an avid ESPN/Sportscenter viewer, I have watched Skip Bayless and Stephen A. Smith battle it out verbally over Tim Tebow.

Well, week after week this season, the Denver Broncos pulled out miraculous wins. Tim Tebow has led the Broncos to the NFL playoffs and will be playing against veteran Tom Brady and the New England Patriots this weekend. It seems that all of America is talking about this Cinderella story starring Tim Tebow and…Jesus!

In case you don’t know, the one aspect of Tim Tebow that has received the greatest amount of ridicule and criticism is his unwavering commitment to Jesus Christ.

I have heard interview after interview and Tebow is always careful to share gratitude and give credit to Jesus. He goes so far as to refer to Jesus as “his Lord and Savior.”

I try to imagine the pressure he must receive from agents, P.R. reps, team reps, coaches, teammates, etc… who urge him to “cool it with the Jesus stuff” – he hasn’t backed down one bit! Tebow’s devotion as a believer is exposing an entire nation not only to football, but to Jesus Christ!

I think Tim Tebow makes us nervous because he is so bold and outspoken about his relationship with Christ. He puts most of us to shame in sharing our faith.

We know that if we had the type of public platform that he has, we would not be so passionate about sharing. There would be fear of inconsistencies that would be discovered in our lives.

We know that people would be discouraged and let down by what would be exposed in our lives. Deep down, we worry that we are not as authentic as Tim Tebow, we are hypocrites.

Tim Tebow is full of childlike faith and his life brings much glory to God. Whether he wins or loses, he never fails to use his platform to give glory to God.

It is refreshing and convicting at the same time to watch someone live out his beliefs so consistently with no shame. We get a little uncomfortable by this 24 year old who doesn’t mind telling the world that he is a child of God. His boldness and consistency in sharing is a reminder to us that we are not sharing!

Tebow’s name is now used as a verb where it is referenced in the stance he takes as he kneels on one knee to pray. People all over are “Tebowing.” He has made it popular to pray!

According to Google, “In 2010, a new rule for the next NCAA football season, dubbed “The Tebow Rule” by media because it would have affected him, banned messages on eye paint. During his college football career, Tebow frequently wore references to biblical verses on his eye black.

In the 2009 BCS Championship Game, he wore John 3:16 on his eye black; the verse was the highest-ranked Google search term over the next 24 hours, generating over 90 million searches.

Additionally, later, when Tebow switched to another verse, there were 3.43 million searches of “Tim Tebow” and “Proverbs 3:5-6″ together.

If you had asked me before this season if God cared about football, I probably would have said no. However as I look at this situation and all the aspects involved, I would answer “yes” rather emphatically!

Because of Tim Tebow, the name of Jesus is being spread on every sports program, national news, newspapers, magazines, etc…

Through his witness on his eye black, 90 million people read, “For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten son…”

A young man who is committed to his faith is standing firm for Jesus and as a result, he is impacting countless lives.

This is much bigger than football my friends, this is about the kingdom! Only heaven will reveal the impact of how God used a little pigskin ball in the hands of a 24 year old young man who simply chose to tell his story.

I for one will be Tebowing this weekend!
