A Son Who Broke His Dad's Heart...

A Son Who Broke His Dad’s Heart…

 

There’s a dad, who’s heart was broken and hurting.

His son was living a way of life not very “reassuring.”

 

He did his best to teach his son God’s ways.

 His son refused the truth of what God says.

 

This dad thought about the kind of life his son lived.

He wondered what more he could possibly give…

 

You could tell by his voice, that sounded very shaken.

His son was at a place in life feeling

“alone and forsaken.”

 

Whatever happened, this father made up his mind.:

“I am going to serve God! 

NOW is the time!”

 

He prayed for his son no matter the cost.

He kept his focus on Christ’ work on the cross!

 

He chose to give God all of his attention.

Things in his life took on a new direction.

 

Jesus gave him his words of a blessed assurance.

The love of Christ isn’t a one time occurrence!

 

He kept on praying and holding firm and fast.

Trusting Jesus with a love that always last!

 

The love for his son was unyielding and powerful.

He spent time in prayer!  Ever so resourceful!

 

As the years went by, he never gave up praying.

No matter the hurtful words his son was saying.

 

His son returned to the Lord he once knew.

His life is changed!  He’s now brand new!

 

The prayers of  parents are the best gift to give!

They can totally transform how

 their kids will live!

Yes! God answers prayer, but so much depends on the stubbornness of the one prayed for. I will never stop praying for my family as long as I live on the earth. Good poem.

About the Poet
I and my wife have 4 grown children and currently live in the Pacific Northwest. I've spent much of my life doing volunteer work in the food distribution for the needy among local churches. Many of the poems I've written are a reflection of times of adversity as a reminder of God's love and faithfulness. I've found many opportunities to share my poems with those who are hurting and discouraged. I'm thankful for the reports of many of the poems touching people's lives. I hope that the poems included on Wordchimes will touch and bless your life too!
