God's Promises


Godís Promises

By the end of law school, my son had finally removed himself from the bad emotional situation with that woman. He was also healed physically, as he received a clean bill of health from his oncologist after treatment. By a series of events, my son took a job at a big law firm in Orange County. He was now only 20 minutes away.

At 25, my son was on top of his game. He was blessed with secular success. I was very proud of his accomplishments, but I wished we had more in common. Although he was now close in proximity, we had very little to talk about. I was still very careful to avoid substantive discussions about Christianity. To the best of my ability, I continued to witness through my life. I continued to pray diligently. I saw Godís promises at work that strengthened my son and brought him closer to ďhome.Ē God was doing things here, so I focused my prayer and asked the Holy Spirit to continue as the ďchoreographerĒ of my sonís life.

Hope in the Lord. . .

Have you never heard or understood?
Don't you know that the LORD is the everlasting God,
the Creator of all the earth? He never grows faint or weary.
No one can measure the depths of his understanding.
He gives power to those who are tired and worn out;
he offers strength to the weak.
Even youths will become exhausted, and young men will give up.
But those who wait on the LORD will find new strength.
They will fly high on wings like eagles.
They will run and not grow weary.
They will walk and not faint.
(Isaiah 40:28-31)

Another Reminder for My Son. . .

And how do you benefit if you gain the whole world
but lose your own soul in the process?
Is anything worth more than your soul??

(Matthew 16:26)

Another Reminder for Me. . .

And we know that God causes everything to work together
for the good of those who love God
and are called according to his purpose for them.

(Romans 8:28)
