"Hoss" is headed home on Monday.
These are the thoughts I have been "re"thinking lately.
"My hope needs to be in God; not in someone's behavior changing, or in the results I want."
"God already knows what the outcome is. I can rest in that."
Fear tries to invade. Anxiety enters. I refocus and cast those thoughts aside. I trust in God's unfailing plan.
Through this latest trial and downward journey I am amazed at God's work. When I don't think I can take the next step, He showers me with strength. He has brought people into "Hoss"' life that I do not even know about. And those who I have come to know about are part of the plan. Everywhere "Hoss" turns, God sends His children to love and admonish him. Even this week, a new person was introduced to him as a mandatory part of his life. A position to help keep Josh accountable. A paid worker. And yes, he is a believer. Josh is in awe of the "hound of heaven". We know it is the Lord drawing and reminding our boy how much He loves him and desires him to surrender.
We appreciate your prayers as we "transition" again. God is the source of our strength and our life.
