An alcoholic father, a fearful home life . . .
Not all fathers are easy to honor — on Father’s Day or any other day. One man discovered his desire to punish his father for his abusive behavior didn’t line up with Jesus’ desire for him to forgive.
You have children, raise them, love them, and prepare them to enter the real world. Easier said than done, according to one mom. Despite knowing these truths, she struggled with the absence of her daughters and letting them make their own decisions. Just as they had a lot to learn about the world, so this mother had a lot to learn from God about the new place she had in their lives.
The invitation from Jesus to “Let the little children come to Me” sounds simple, but it wasn’t for one woman whose childhood was marred by sexual abuse. As an adult, she learned how to be a child again in the way that God intended.
A woman is faced with a number of challenges in her family and in her health. Through them she learns that God uses His own methods to humble us and make us depend on Him.
