Today is my second oldest grandson’s birthday. He is 17. I’ve been amazed watching him mature. He took a part-time job this summer working for a friend of mine who couldn’t quit giving him kudos for the great work he does and the great worker he is. This work ethic is a gift I’ve watched him develop in the past couple years. It makes grandpa proud!
I’m rather amazed (can’t find a better word than amazed) how great it is to arrive at yesterday’s meeting with much unknown about it, but simply be relaxed knowing any input I’m to give will be nudged. I don’t have to create something so I can be of good use. No condemning voices at all. God’s healing touch, miraculous work is nothing but amazing. It is also well worth the effort to stay the course of overcoming with Him.
Last night’s Celebrate Recovery meeting had one of the men saying he wanted/needed to build a stronger relationship with God. He had grown much closer to God in his recovery journey, but the intimate relationship is something he doesn’t know yet. It has taken me a long time to get to this place of much greater trust and belief, and I’m so grateful to be here seeing and believing God to be just as He has always said–Faithful to the end!
Hebrews 3:14 says: “For if we are faithful to the end, trusting God just as firmly as when we first believed, we will share in all that belongs to Christ.”
