Sitting in the passenger seat of the old truck, Bryson’s eyes illuminated with excitement. He was wearing his camouflage cargo pants and work boots, matching his dad. If someone told Bryson something bad about his dad, he wouldn’t believe them. Bryson thought that his dad was the greatest man alive, and today he was going to work with him.
When they arrived at the job, Bryson’s dad quickly got focused on how the roofing was coming along. Little Bryson got bored and wandered to the woods to find something exciting.
While Bryson was steadily walking to the woods, he started having low abdominal pains. He didn’t think much of it at first but quickly realized that it could be something very serious. Before Bryson knew it, he was lying on the ground screaming for help.
Bryson’s father thought he heard someone screaming. He listened closely and recognized the sound of his child. Being filled with worry and fear, he ran towards the woods.
The next morning, Bryson woke up to a new atmosphere. Not only to a new atmosphere, but to lying in a hospital bed.
His father couldn’t stand the sight of seeing his son sick and confused lying in a hospital bed. He kept blaming himself for not watching Bryson as intently as he should have.
He knew that he would do anything it took to see his son’s eyes shine like they did yesterday morning.
This is a work of fiction God allowed me to write so that I can share what He is trying to say to you.
You are His child. When you are going though a rough time, God is going through it with you. Jesus’ heart becomes grievous when He sees you wandering away from His love. We will never be able to separate or stop the love God has for us. We are His children and He is our Father.
Before the beginning of the world, God knew that you and I would be broken and need a Savior. He sent His only son, Jesus, to come and die on a cross so that we could live a life for Him on earth and have an eternity with Him in Heaven.
Like Bryson’s father, we have a Father who wants to see us live life to the fullest. Jesus enjoys seeing our faces shine with His love and peace. He wants us to share what He has done in our lives and to help others see how much He loves them.
God is asking you and I, “Why would you choose to live an ordinary life whenever you have the ability and freedom in Me to live a life worthy of your calling?”
Jesus died so that you and I can live this life for Him. Will you choose to?
