Not So Dumb After All


My oldest turned twenty-six a few days ago. He asked his girlfriend of three years to marry him on New Year’s Day. We’ve talked a lot on the phone the last few weeks.  I called him to wish him a happy birthday and asked him how he was doing.

“It’s weird Dad. I’m getting married and I’ll be thirty in a few years.  I’m not a kid anymore.”

“Yeah and you’re thinking about what you want to be when you grow up, wondering about being a husband, finding a better job to support a wife and how come you didn’t plan on having more fun during your teen years?

“Yeah, that’s it exactly.  How did you know?”

I couldn’t help but laugh out loud. Seems Dad isn’t so dumb after all.  It was a feeling I cherished for the rest of the day and most of the next. After some reassurance, I told him that if he continued to seek God’s will in his life, he would be just fine. “How can you know for sure?” Cause I’ve been where you are, son.  I know from experience He can be trusted with your life.

As we move into a new year, I wanted to remind us that God can be trusted with our futures.  He’s already been there.  Thank you for being involved in this ministry.
