Today I’m thankful that my Dad knows the Lord and trusts Him even when things don’t quite make sense. I’m thankful that Daddy doesn’t hide when he struggles and when he wonders why God allows certain things to happen. I know that God has something for each of us to learn through this terrible process. I don’t know yet what all those lessons are…I may never know all the lessons that are learned because of this time. But I know that Daddy is confident in the Lord’s provision, guidance, love, acceptance, forgiveness, healing and grace to cover it all.
This is my prayer for my Daddy today. and everyday.
Philippians 4:4-7 4 Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice! 5 Let your gentleness be evident to all. The Lord is near. 6 Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. 7 And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
Reread verse 7. Now, read it again.
