“The Lord bless you, and keep you; the Lord make His face shine on you, and be gracious to you; the Lord lift up His countenance on you, and give you peace” (Numbers 6:25-27).
From the time they were able to start praying as children, and continuing through their high school years, Aaron’s blessing was one of two blessings I would interchangeably pronounce over my children every evening before they went to sleep. I desired for them the awareness of God’s presence and working in their lives. Nearly 10 years ago, when my son moved fifteen hours away to attend college, I wanted to continue a daily offering to his life and spiritual development; just something short and sweet—a sound-bite of God’s Word to start the day, if you will. Thus, the creation of this daily devotional. What started as a daily verse and thought from a father to a son has evolved into a daily offering to anyone desiring to receive, read, and share an encouraging and challenging devotional thought. It’s a great way to start the day. God bless you!!
