1 Corinthians 13:7 (ESV) – “Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.”
My husband Jon and I were only married for two months when David first came into my life. We already had my son Matthew. Now we anxiously waited for my husband’s son, David, to visit us for Christmas after two years of being in Child Protection Services (CPS).
This would have been my husband’s first time having an unsupervised visit with his son for one week. For two consistent years, weekly, one hour visits were made between father and son at the CPS office, all under the supervision of David’s Social Worker. Faithfully, Jon never missed a meeting with his six year old son.
As we went to court in early December 2011, Jon expected his parental rights to become terminated. My husband sat in the hallway nervously as our case was the last one the docket that day. The judge decreed that Jon would get home visitations, starting at Christmas, and then full custody. In that one afternoon, the Lord turned everything around from anxiety to relief and rejoicing. What a miraculous Christmas this was after all!
Father, I understand that you are the God of the impossible, I ask that you build my faith for the impossible. In this, Glory may be brought to your name. Amen
