A Letter to a Confident Father

As I write this letter, I am reminded of your confidence in God, and it makes me so proud. Why does it make me proud? It makes me proud because in those hard places it ‘s hard to believe in a world full of doubt and hopelessness you choose to remain humble and thankful. You decide to thank God for the things that we so often take for granted like breathing, walking and talking. The way that you are also thankful for the hard times because you now understand those hard times builds your faith and confidence in God. When I look at you and see your belief, it helps my unbelief. Did you know that your confidence in God is a blessing and your expectancy of God is a blessing? In Jeremiah 17:7 (NIV) it says “But blessed is the one who trusts in the LORD, whose confidence is in him.” I love how you choose to change your perspective on things and people when the view is obscured; you don’t just run you stay and wait until you get the revelation. I am reminded of this one particular verse “Being confident of this very thing, that he which hath begun a good work in you will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ.” (Philippians 1:6) I see your confidence, and it looks good on you.
