Let me start by saying it is an honor given to me through the Mercy of Christ by my son to allow me to be a guest writer on his blog so, I am praying as I write this post I can make it a memorable one for all to read. I am author of thoughtsz from my heart and the step father of the author of Daily Aspects. As I turned twenty one, I had meet this young punk kid who at that time was having a rough go of it. Seeing some of the same situations I had gone through. Now it is twenty years later, and this once punk kid with the help of Christ has really helped me change my way of living. We all fall short of the Glory of God, recently I did just that.
After a psychology appointment I had stopped at a bar, know I am not supposed to drink due to a seizure disorder, and the fact that when I was in my early twenties I had a drinking problem, and with that alot of animosity had built up. This problem continued until I got a job in 2000, in which case it still took alot of time to rebuild the trust. Back to the point, I had stopped at the bar because I had so much pain emotionally and my doctor pretty much blew me off. Now I have done this before and I have again broke the trust of all family members. This was back when Christ wasn’t part of are lives. Now that my stepson (S.L.I.K.) and his wife are members of the church and we are regular attenders, Here is where the Mercy of Christ comes in. This time I called my wife to come and get me and after she did, I got home and when straight to bed not out of worry that I was going to get retribution from my family members, because I knew that was going to happen, but when I had woke up the next morning my wife didn’t say to much at first, my stepson made some what a joke out of it, my daughter in law didn’t say very much, and my youngest son, hadn’t given me the usual morning issues that I get when waking him up for school. By the Grace of God all my children had taken it easy on me, with me waiting for the bomb to drop, when it didn’t I had one more person to contend with, my wife sure she was upset, but again as with the rest of them, I didn’t get the full force of her wrath that I use to get. Now for me that was the Greatest act of Mercy that Christ could have gave me that day.
Now I am going to end this post with a poem which I do often in my own blog, and pray that this doesn’t hinder any readers from returning to Daily Aspects. If there are any objections the poem will be deleted. I know a couple of you are followers of my blog and have made some great comments on my poems so I am praying that the same thing happens. The Mercy Of Christ: The very day Christ died we were made alive, His death for our sins, we now can strive Our sins sorrow our Lord and Savior, Christian attitudes will change our behavior.
(Moral of this post), Even though your children grew up in troubled homes even if it’s at the present time, with the Mercy of Christ in your lives, anything can happen.
