thank You that i can trust You with any and every thing.
i can trust You cuz You are trustworthy. You're not at the beck and call of every whim i have so there can (and have been) be times where i'm disgruntled. sinful. yet Your trustworthiness never fails.
You haven't failed to feed me, clothe me, give me a house to live in. more importantly You haven't failed to chip away my sinfulness and to make me more like You.
You haven't failed to keep Your eyes on me in the middle of the refining fire
You haven't failed to snatch me out at that perfect moment when all that's left is pure silver & gold
You haven't failed to love me
You haven't failed to be there especially when i'm at my most unpleasant
You haven't failed to hold me
You haven't failed to keep me safe in the raging storm
You haven't failed in answering any prayer
You haven't failed to perform miracles
You haven't failed to be my strong tower of refuge
You haven't failed to sing over me
You haven't failed to tell me You are honored as my actions bring You glory
You haven't failed to stay with me
You haven't failed to heal me
You especially haven't failed to heal my heart
You haven't failed to call me
You haven't failed to call me into the greater
You haven't failed to be the author of my power and courage in terrible battles
You haven't failed to redeem me
You haven't failed to give me a Home
You have not failed
The phrase "Thank you" ranks in the top three in my mind as the most powerful phrases in the English language. Along with "I love you" and "I am sorry" the expression of thanks is full of impact. There is something unique about it -- about feeling blessed that is difficult to explain -- but it is very noticeable and exceptionally real.
For the last two and half years my wife Ann and I have called The Lake of the Ozarks our home. We found an amazing property with a great deal of potential but requiring some significant work. As we have toiled away on weekends in reclaiming an overgrown wooded property, killing weeds, attacking poison ivy, wiping out spider webs or hornets nests and scaring off snakes, ticks and scorpions back to the bottom less pit from which they originated from, I have had time to think about how some of these things apply to what I get paid to do during the week.
In my role I have had the opportunity to visit some locations around the globe that go far back into ancient times. Seeing a 2000 year old inscription on the wall of Pompeii portraying the moving company of the city bringing goods into town is pretty fascinating to an old mover. Because of these types of experiences I have marveled at how far back the logistics, moving and relocation industry go in history. As we are now in the middle of this year’s holiday season I am reminded of the story of moving, relocation and logistics within the Christmas story. The story of Christ’s birth as told in the books Matthew and Luke involve a lot activity related to our industry and it may provide some insight in to our roles today.
The Economist Magazine has a very impactful expose this week with details on the amazing impact AI will have on this planet. It will be game changing in all industries including mine. I have been ingrained in the moving industry for over three decades, which effectively has not changed during my career and operates from a model that is not sustainable. AI most assuredly will turn the industry on its backside. Companies that dominate will disappear and some that may not even exist yet will win at levels never seen before.
