In that last post I noted that Jamie Soles has a blog. Well I read his latest entry and he has a few remarks worth repeating here because they really hit home.
If we go thru any particular day and ask ourselves at the end of it what we accomplished in terms of character development today, our usual answer may range from “Not much…” down to “Nothing”. But I read a saying a couple weeks ago that stuck in my mind, and it is worth thinking about… “People overestimate what they can accomplish in a day, and underestimate what they can accomplish in a decade.”
Someone once described the development of the kingdom of God as “A series of triumphs disguised as disasters.” It may appear that we are failing, but we keep on doing what we know God wants us to do, plugging away believing in His promises, and it seems to me that God will honor this kind of faith with children who are obedient to Jesus.
Here is a video of Jamie on youtube.
You can purchase mp3’s here, we own The Way My Story Goes, it is superb.
One more link, Jamie did an interview about some of his music at St. Annes Pub.
