Last week we watched our wedding video. Brooke had been wanting to see it and it was so much fun to watch it with her. There was a song we had sung as a dedication that the Lord has been bringing to my mind this weekend. This is our prayer in the midst of this trial:
Many now are watching the footsteps that we take;
Many soon will follow in the choices that we make.
So let us then be faithful to be what we should be,
And leave a good example that they can clearly see.
Chorus: Be an example of the believers in word and in conduct;
Be steadfast in love, in faith, in purity of life.
For those behind us, let us stand within the gap and make a difference in their lives;
Be an example to follow Christ.
Let us then be watching the weary, day by day,
Looking to encourage and to lead them in the way;
To run the race with patience; On Jesus fix their eyes,
And challenge them with excellence, that they might win the prize. Chorus
