Happy Labor Day to Everyone! Well, I was going to take the easy way out and simply attach a Labor Day picture, but it has been a while since I’ve given you an update on my son. First, I want to thank all of you who have continued to pray with me and my family. The Son Saga has taken a rather interesting twist…my son has continued to come to church faithfully, but now he brings a special guest???
I must give you a little background… First, you may have gathered that my son is not only mad at me, but he is extremely angry with my husband. I kinda failed to mention
because I didn’t feel that it was important that my husband is not my son’s biological father. My husband and I have been together since my son was 4 yrs. old. My son have always known that my husband adopted him and he knew of his bio’ father although he had not been in his life.
When my son was a teenager, his bio’ father re-entered his life (as God would have it— Really God, Really?). “His thoughts are not our thoughts, nor His ways our ways.” So when my son left in a huff two years ago, he disowned his father (my husband) and me. My husband has always been a good husband and provider, but I am realizing more and more how difficult it is for a man, being head of the household, and raising a son
especially one who has always filled our lives with drama. It is a “man’s thing”, which I will never fully understand.
So, if you haven’t figured it out by now, my son has been bringing his bio’ father to church with him almost every Sunday. Really God, Really? (Now for those of you that were taught in church, not to ask God why?, it is OK, just don’t always expect an answer… at least not right away.) My son is doing it to hurt my husband and it has worked, but the Holy Spirit has been right there with him all the way. He has had to sit in my husband’s lap once or twice, to hold the emotions at bay, but all in all the Lord has kept him in almost perfect peace.
It has truly been an interesting phenomenon to watch. The Lord has not only sustained my husband and I, but our daughters as well. Always know that God’s Grace is more than sufficient. God has a plan and a purpose for all of us. What Satan means for evil, God will turn it around for our good.
Just like the city of Jericho, the walls of confusion, anger, bitterness, etc. around my son, are tumbling down. It may not look like, but they are….
Do you realize that our tests and trials of life are meant for us to learn and grow? What has you learned from God lately?
