I will admit, yesterday was one of the very few times I actually took “shelter” in advance of a tornado. I mean, actually got into a “safe-space” with the family and put helmets on everyone. We hadn’t been there but just a few minutes when we lost power and were sitting in the dark with […]
Welcome to "Let's Ask Dad"
A place to find wit, wisdom, random thoughts and positive encouragement.
Notice that the quote contrasts between what is right and easy, not wrong. Most of us would find it easy to make that choice. Knowing that choosing wrong leads to a path of destruction and disappointment wouldn’t make sense at all. But to choose between right and easy at least causes one to pause and […]
Don’t let others cause you to panic or become fearful. We know that these may seem like uncertain times, but we serve a certain God! “For God has not given us a spirit of fear and timidity, but of power, love, and self-discipline.”2 Timothy 1:7
The throne is for God; that is where He rules and reigns. The altar is for us; that is where we find cleansing and purging from sin. We should never confuse the two! #LetsAskDad #EnduringWord

All too often I look around and ask, “God, what are you doing?” He gently reminds me “See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the wilderness and streams in the wasteland.” Isaiah 43:19 . Thank you Jesus…I need this reminder […]

I love how inquisitive she is! I also have to remind myself that she really does want answers when she asks questions. It’s too easy to dismiss children with, “Because I said so!” But that doesn’t always suffice! It may work for the moment because of frustration, but a moment of explanation might be what’s […]
