A way of Life

Rod Shimabukuro

Scripture
2 Timothy 3:10 You, however, know all about my teaching, my way of life, my purpose, faith, patience, love, endurance,
Observation
Paul was undoubtedly a spiritual father and mentor to Timothy. His writings to Timothy included warnings, teachings and clips of his personal victories and defeats.

Like Paul, I desire to encourage, inspire and exemplify a life of Christ before others. Spending time with Pastor Toru, Kozue, Gabe and Yuumi encouraged me to believe that the Lord’s favor is upon them - as spiritual leaders. Having the opportunity to share experiences in my 30 1/2 years as a growing Christian, help me to realize that I’m OLD - and that God has been faithful to keep me, grow me and transform my life.
Application
It is an honorable yet fearful place in life, where I am. A little over 3 decades of my life have been as a Christ follower! To God be the honor!

Today - I am motivated and inspired to continue this way of life in Jesus. At age 49, and growing in Jesus, He has been so favorable in allowing me to mentor such fine men of faith.

Today, I desire to be a man of integrity who walks in love for people, including leaders who need support, love, prayer and encouragement!
Prayer
Lord - Who am I that You are mindful of me - to use me in ways that edify and equip Your Kingdom shepherds.. I am of all men, honored and blessed! Please help me to live in humility and love, for you, for my family and Your shepherds!
