    I have no idea what God’s plan is for me. Lately, I seem to have no effect at all where I want to have an effect. It is very discouraging.

    • Am sorry that things don’t appear to be working. But you may well be having a positive effect on people that is not clear to you. The articles you’ve written are wondeful.

    • Thanks, Richard. I guess I am caught up in the things that can be measured. “If you cannot measure it, it does not matter.” “What are the metrics”, “Prove your ROI”. I get this all day every day. When I look at my life, I see that by measures and metrics, I am always behind my Dad and Brother and Friends. It has ever been such. In this world, anything outside that ROI does not matter. No one wants you for you, but what you can do for them.

      Brother Bryan, of course you know better than this. I am sorry to see you discouraged. Please enjoy your family at Christmas; take pleasure and pride in them, and call to mind the joy that Christians share at the Festival of the Nativity.

    • I wish I had some magic words. I don’t. Sometimes life sucks and you feel like giving up. I have never run a marathon but I have heard of the dreaded wall in the middle of the race. You have to keep going to break through it. But how do you do it when your body tells you to stop because you can’t make it.
      This helps me. Good times don’t always last forever and bad times don’t either but it can sure feel like it.

    • You never know when an Angel will cross your path. You will often not know when you are the Angel crossing the path of someone else. Nice to have one in my path today. Thanks for the support guys.
