I have always loved this picture. It reminds me to pray for my kids...and for you who read this blog. What I’m praying for is that you will feel the weight of single fatherhood lifted by the grace of God, the final work of Christ’s blood on the cross and the power of the Holy Spirit working in and through you. My hope is that you’ll walk away from these blogs humbled, knowing you can probably improve in some areas. But I also hope you’ll be encouraged, knowing there’s nothing you can’t do when Jesus is on the throne of your heart. “It is the Lord who goes before you. He will be with you; he will not leave you or forsake you. Do not fear or be dismayed” (Deuteronomy 31:8).
