"Train up a child in the way he should go and when he is old he will not depart from it" This is a bible verse I have clung to since the day my first child was born. My children don't remember a time when we as a family didn't attend church and both made professions of faith at a young age. I don't mean to give the impression we were anything but an average bible believing family, trying to live the best we could, and raising our children the best we could, yet making our own mistakes along the way. As my son started into puberty, I was really starting to wonder if I'd done all that was expected of me in the above verse. Well, my son never got into any legal trouble, but he never followed the path he was taught. Many tears have been shed and our hearts have been broken many, many times. I'm sharing all this because many of you have asked for prayers, and this is great. Well, now I ask for you to join with me in lifting up praise and thanks. We're finally seeing many prayers being answered. Our son is 38 years old and he's started back to church again. He's opening up and talking with me about this and I sense his sincerity and need. The sad part right now is he's going alone. His wife won't go with him. She's another denomination, and has no interest in going with him or to her own faith. This is going to be hard for him. I felt a desire to share this with those of you who might be going through some of the same heartbreaks we've gone through and say, don't ever give up hope, and hang onto the verse above. Just remember the verse says, when he is old. It just doesn't say how old. I had reconciled myself to the fact that I might not see the change in my lifetime. Please join me in giving thanks, and asking his wife be touched in some way.
