Aiming My Sons

Psalm 127 “Sons are a heritage from the Lord, children a reward from him. Like arrows in the hands of a warrior are sons born in one’s youth. Blessed is the man whose quiver is full of them.”

I’ve been blessed to have all my boys with me in Honduras this week. I’ve got to serve food to hungry people at the dump with Taylor by my side. I’ve built a house with Parker and watched him as he loved on little Honduran kids. I’ve mixed concrete and carried cinder-blocks with Connor as we built a cinder-block house together. And, I’ve worked along side of Cooper in one of our medical clinics.

What an awesome week it has been to serve other and do it along side my children. Honduras has blessed the Morgan family.

I like the part of the verse above that says, “like arrows in the hands of a warrior are sons born in one’s youth.” My boys are my arrows in my hands, and my ministry as a father has been to “aim” those arrows in the right direction.

What better way is there to “aim” arrows than serving others in Jesus’ name?

As with any arrows you aim, there comes a time when you have to do the hard part… let go. Arrows aren’t for saving or storing for display, but there for letting go.

I’ve got two sons that I’ve been aiming for 18+ years and next month I’ll be letting them go. Sad? A little. Proud? Beyond the shadow of a doubt.

    :) What is Parker up to next? Or did I miss this announcement at some point. I am loving your new(ish) love for the work in Honduras! What an amazing work!

    Cool! I get to work with my boy every day. Wish we were closer to our daughter, but she’s about half way through with her MBA and doing very well, and the most important thing, she’s walking with the Lord in all aspects of her life.

    We are blessed, aren’t we Trey?

    Great photo, great story but even greater testimony.

  4. Great story Trey! God bless Taylor and Parker as they go off to college in August. God bless the Morgan family and the work y’all are doing in Honduras and in Childress.

    Thank you, my friend. I may go buy a bow and arrow to hang in my house to remind me of the truth you imparted to us in this thought…actually a bow and four arrows – two with blue feathers and two with pink feathers.
    God bless you and your work. Don’t know if I’ll be able to go to Honduras with you next year or not, but will be praying for the Lord’s discernment.

    Wonderful picture. Wonderful story. You continue to inspire. Thanks for sharing.

  9. I love this picture and the guys. I pray that they all stay on the straight and narrow way and always hit the bulls eye. Much love to all 6 of the Morgan’s in Childress.
