And you will seek Me and find Me, when you search for Me with all your heart. Jeremiah 29:13
I received a phone call from a concerned dad a while back. He wanted me to come over for a visit because he had some questions for me. Upon my arrival dad got right to the point. He needed to know how to give a blessing for the food they ate. Apparently his 8-year-old daughter demanded they give thanks to the Lord for His provision. However, it didn’t stop there. One day at the grocery store, dad saw on opportunity to cut in line. The daughter shouted and embarrassed him by letting dad and the entire store know that God would not approve of him cutting in line.
This young student is learning at Faith Academy about who Jesus is and what it means to be a follower of our Saviour. Because of this, an opportunity opened up to share the Scriptures and show dad who Jesus is and how true believers can approach the throne of grace in times of need. I told dad to talk to Jesus the same way he would talk to me, with sincerity of heart.
I continue to pray and I am thankful for every opportunity to open the Scriptures with the families in our Adopt-A-Student Program. Thank you, Jesus and to God be all the Glory!
