A Text From A Dad
Today while working away at my desk, I get text message, most times it requires me to stop and take action. Today, I got a text message from a young man in our program who forwarded a text from his Father.
Here is the text:
My Dad sent this:
“If you love God, and are living as one who is called according to His purposes, then He has promised you that all things work together for Good, even if it may initially look like failure.
FAILURE simply can mean:
Walk with God Today, look to Him for direction, then let Him direct you. Ask Him specifically for answers you are looking for. If He says Wait, then wait. If He says Yes, step forward. If He says No, then move on. Because a NO from the Lord can simply mean: Next Opportunity
Wait when He says Wait. Step forward when He says Yes. Look for the next opportunity when He says No. Knowing that our Father loves you, has your best interest in mind, and is working it all out for good.”
Make it a great day,
I think we can all learn from this Father. What a great way for a Father to show his support to his Son in recovery. As a Father myself, I tip my hat to this Dad and say, “well done Sir!”
