A friend of mine who is experiencing some very deep waters because of disability in his family sent me some prayer requests in an email earlier this week. It included this:
That I would genuinely grow in the grace and knowledge of Jesus through this particular season (vs. just enduring it), and that as a result I might become an increasingly worshipful and loving servant leader in our home
I read this and just worshipped God for the extraordinary grace that poured through the computer screen and over my heart as I read it.
His child is already complicated, and new circumstances have only increased the complications.
Yet he wants more of Jesus, and not just for himself, but for the sake of his behavior towards his family.
Thank you, my friend, for encouraging me to want more of Jesus in every season!
