"My Prodigal Son and God's Love"

"One Day, I Pray"
  I would like to thank each of my blog family members who have and are going to keep my son Caleb lifted up in you prayers! We have had a long couple of years with him. He has kept me, my wife and other friends and family on our knees for a while! It isn't that he doesn't know better it's just that he is"The Prodigal Son" at this stage of his life! We continue to trust God with Caleb's soul, that one day He will call him to repentance, humble him and save his soul. It has been a long and stressful process as we continue to love Caleb as Jesus loves us. Daily we try to show Caleb, Christ's love through us but it can be rough at time, lol! We ask you to continue to pray for his salvation, and pray for grace to handle him for the rest of us.
"Living the Christian life is often described in the Bible with words and phrases such as:  “warfare,” “fight,” “run the race,” “yield not,” “work out,” and “press on.” The Christian life is a disciplined life of constant vigilance, of taking up the cross daily. There are no short-cuts. The spiritual conflict will continue till we step on the other side of glory."  John Napier
  Hopefully I can get back to blogging in some type of normal fashion, lol! If there is some sort of normalcy around here, lol! We had to take a week or so off to collect ourselves and get in God's Word and in prayer with Him. I do hope you all understand! One thing that I have come to understand more than anything during this time of trial is that God loves His children more than we love our own and if you have children, sit back and think about that! God Bless you all!

Gods Love:
"He spared not his own Son, but delivered him up for us all; how shall He not with him freely give us all things" (Romans 8:32)? How is it imaginable that God should withhold, after this, spirituals or temporals, from His people? How shall He not call them effectually, justify them freely, sanctify them thoroughly, and glorify them eternally? How shall He not clothe them, feed them, protect and deliver them? Surely if He would not spare this own Son one stroke, one tear, one groan, one sigh, one circumstance of misery, it can never be imagined that ever He should, after this, deny or withhold from His people, for whose sakes all this was suffered, any mercies, any comforts, any privilege, spiritual or temporal, which is good for them."  John Flavel

  1. Good for you. Prayer, listening to Him and loving on your son no matter what direction the outcome takes is the way the Lord wants us to respond. Blogging is secondary - leaning on Him is more important. All the best, Clint and family.

  2. Continuing to pray for your son! (and you and your wife).

    Hope you had a blessed Father's Day!
