The other day my son was telling me, with quite a bit of surprise in his voice, how he had prayed for God to help him with a difficult conversation with a family member, and He had done exactly that. He was so excited to have had such an intimate interaction with the Father, and that his prayer was really heard and responded to directly. I told him that those are the moments we need to hold onto when other times in life we feel alone and frustrated. I told him about another family who had started a kind of jar-o-praise, as a way to remember those moments a little at a time, and a way to look back on all the good things God had done for them. In response, he immediately asked… “well, do we have a mason jar??”
Yes, good things are ahead indeed.
