Good Morning Church Family.
Being a parent is one of the many blessings God grants us, but there are times I have no clue if I'm doing what I should in instances that I deal with. Last night Timmy rushes into the kitchen screaming about something. Corey slowly wonders in with the face of guilt. After the investigation takes place we learn of crime and when Corey learns what he has done he breaks down. He was trying to be silly and it resulted in a nasty looking scratch. Of course, I'm very disappointed and frustrated and lecture my son on right from wrong again. Unsure if I'm getting through to him. Timmy forgives his brother; even asks Terri and I if he can give his Bubba a hug. In one instance I see all the wrong I'm doing as well as all of the right. God knows I lean on his understanding and strength when it comes to raising my children. I often find myself yelling and getting frustrated and loosing my temper. Later I look back and man-o-man I feel like I failed at being a father. I just do my best to be better next time and bring my faith into the situation. I pray constantly that I am granted the wisdom, strength and the right words to continue to raise my boys into fine young men.
Train up a child in the way he should go; even when he is old he will not depart from it.
Let's pray for the tragic event that occurred in Charlottesville, VA. So much hate is occurring throughout our country and we need to continue to pray for God's will. He has it in control. Pray for Pastor Corey, our Praise Team, our Sunday School Teachers and the many that are behind the scenes preparing to make our Worship Sunday an amazing one! Continue to pray for those in poor health needing God's Healing Hand. Pray for those that you know need God's touch in their lives. Praise Him for His many blessings! Pray for whatever weighs heavy on your heart.
