Today it happened. One of those phone calls, well this time it was FaceTime, that can change everything that you are focused on.
My Dad, is a cancer survivor. His cancer has been in remission for a few years now. The first fight was tough. My family and I are under no illusion that what lies ahead will be tough also.
This is one of those days that “Becoming A Follower” is more than the name of a blog or a theory.
But in other ways, today is just like any other day.
A decision has to be made. Will I follow my Savior and King or will I shake my fist and let Him know that I won’t take another step until I have a guarantee that this will work out the way I want it too?
Today, I choose to say, “Blessed be the name of The Lord.”
God is good, all the time.
I choose to follow and trust the only TRUTH (Jesus) pure, beautiful and righteous in this world.
Not for what I can get from Him, but because of all of who He is.
My heart is firm, trusting in The Lord. That is what one Psalm 112 man taught this one.
I have watched my Dad living the maturation of life as a disciple and he in turn did what the mark of a disciple does, he made others. We (our family) stand together, firm with our trust in our Abba.
To quote my Dad who stole a quote from someone else (Edward Mote)’
“My hope is built on nothing less than Jesus’ blood and righteousness.”
