Girls, I just read the MOST amazing blog. I LOVE this and want to pass it on to you.
Here are three of the 50 things Rick Thomas want’s his daughter to know … Nuggets of pure gold, and sound wisdom! If she listens to this wisdom … she will be so fulfilled in her life and marriage. Take a moment and let these thoughts permeate your being. Pray God opens the eyes of your spiritual understanding:
1. Don’t just marry a Christian. Christians are a dime a dozen. Marry a person who acts like Jesus. When you line up the fruit of the Spirit (Galatians 5:22-23), there should be little difference between your boyfriend and Jesus. That’s the guy of your dreams. Any other kind of man will be a nightmare.
2. Boys are not as strong and invincible as they would want you to believe. If you don’t learn the “book” before you fall in love with the “cover,” you’ll be disappointed with the content.
3. Don’t spend your teenage years primarily playing sports, or anything else that you will not be doing when you’re fifty. Spend the best part of your days practicing the things you will be doing (and should be doing) for the rest of your life. Your hobbies, whether in your teen or adult years, should not be your primary focus. (Unless you can make a living doing your hobby.)

The inspiration for my first note comes from Proverbs 2.
“IF you call out for insight and raise your voice for understanding IF you seek it like silver and search for it as for hidden treasures … then you will understand the fear of the Lord and find the knowledge of God. For the Lord GIVES wisdom, he stores up sound wisdom for the upright he is a shield to those who walk in integrity.”
Good morning girlies,
As I was reading my Bible this morning, I thought of you. My prayer for you is the same prayer I prayed for my kids, (your parents). I pray that you will grow in your understanding of Father God and that you find your identity in Him.
When you find your identity in Christ, you are free to be ALL God created you to be. You are a child of the King, His princess.
I also pray that our family’s next generation (YOU) will seek God and that God will use the light that shines within you to reflect His glory and His love to a very dark world.
I will be emailing you love notes to encourage you in your walk with Jesus. As I share the Love of God and the wisdom He imparts, I hope it encourages you. I also hope it creates a hunger for His word which will lead you to dig for truth as for hidden treasures.
When I was a brand new Christian (15 years old) I read the verses below. My heart welled up with the deepest longing and I begged God for wisdom:
“IF you call out for insight and raise your voice for understanding IF you seek it like silver and search for it as for hidden treasures … then you will understand the fear of the Lord and find the knowledge of God. For the Lord GIVES wisdom, he stores up sound wisdom for the upright he is a shield to those who walk in integrity.” Prov. 2:1-7
“Ask and it will be given you seek and you will find knock and the door will be open to you.” Luke 11:9 Jesus
God loves you, my girls, He is waiting for you to dig for the gold nuggets found in His word. Call out to Him, He is waiting and He longs to give you His wisdom.
Because I love you,
