PRAYER – Kardashian

One of our pastors posted to social media an image in which a human chain was formed to save a family that had been pulled out by a rip current at Ft. Lauderdale. My natural skepticism makes me wonder whether the event actually happened or the image is an elaborate display of someone’s PhotoShop abilities. Now you should know that my 2.0s say that my super hero name is The Leveler. If one of them makes a 95 on a test, my comment is, “That’s great. Why did you miss 5 points.”

That said, the image demonstrates a concept we all need to understand, that we can’t do it alone. YHC needs the partnership of other men who can push me to be better, my M who softens my rough edges (she is The Leveler’s arch nemesis) and teams with me to make our family work, and of course, our Heavenly Father who strengthens me, gifts me, and allows me to push through when I truly CAN’T do it.
