The Opportunity

Our grandsons went home yesterday afternoon and we already missed them the moment they stepped out of the door. Lil' Kc tugged at my heart by returning the hand kiss I blew him and by waving at me. We hope to see them soon again.

We are so grateful for having been able to spend almost two weeks with them and for our youngest to return, even though she is very standoffish and withdrawn. I find myself being very sceptical and mistrusting towards her and I am aware that attitude is no good.

I am weary of being used and forced in to catering to her wants and all I expect is to get hurt again, but I realize that living in dread and fear is not what God wants me to do. I should focus on love, hope and faith and by setting an example. I need His strength and encouragement to do so.

Luke 15: 11-32, The Parable of the Lost Son came to my mind and I want so bad to follow that father's example. Where there is a will, there is a way and I can do anything through Christ who strengthens me. Even though she has not shown any signs of repentance yet, all this happened for a reason.

As I am typing and pondering on this, my attitude is already changing; love is the greatest thing of all and the only thing that will remain. Where would I be without God's love, care and compassion? Maybe I am not being used by her for her wants, but by Him as a testimony and an example. I better grab that opportunity with both hands and be thankful for it! :-)

Luke 15:31-32
31 "And he said to him, 'Son, you are always with me, and all that I have is yours. 32 It was right that we should make merry and be glad, for your brother was dead and is alive again, and was lost and is found.' "
