There was a time in my life when I just knew I needed a change. But I didn't know what to do, so I just prayed...
I want you to look at this picture above. Seriously look at it. The person is on top of a mountain with a pic in their hand and they are swinging at the mountain. How did they get there? Where did they come from? What job do they have? What were their parents like? Who is the person with enough guts to get up on that mountain top and take the picture?
“When I look at this picture I wonder...who are they and how did they overcome to stand on that mountain?"
For me This happened when I was a young boy learning to play soccer. Each year my father would be the coach of one of his children's soccer teams. This year he was my soccer coach. My father is an amazing man. He loves God and always tries to do the right thing. However, at that time in my life I did not feel like my father loved me.(This is nothing to do with him and everything to do with my perception of his love). He works very hard to provide a place for us to live. He taught us to read the Bible and worship God. Demonstrating a hard wok ethic he provided the necessary food and clothing for us. In actuality the real problem was that I had pushed away God's love and filled my heart with lesser loves. So, God the Father was trying to draw me away (into His love), and show me how much He loved me.
