Father knows best

Have you ever had a moment when you’ve cried out for help?

When you’ve been so burnt out by a medical or life crisis that you’ve sought guidance?

I think deep down we believe it would be easier to deal with our problems by ourself, rather than going to God. To use our own coping methods rather than seeking his guidance.

This is why we can humbly go to Him, in awe of the great forgiveness he offers for seeking to figure out things on our own – before coming to Him.

It was good to be with my dad’s family and I appreciated the warm affection they extended toward me.

My own father passed away at the age of 45. Struck by an underage DUI driver he suffered a massive brain injury and died some many months later from multiple complications. The irony is that my father was (himself) an alcoholic. The police report indicated both individuals shared fault in this tragic accident. Witnesses reported my father walked out into oncoming traffic after leaving a nearby bar; and while not sustaining any physical injuries, the young girl behind the wheel suffered her own terrible consequences.
