Re: Daily Devotional; formerly Chaplains Corner
OK guys I did not want to lay this one on you but these last couple of posts have convinced me to listen to that little voice in my head. I have been a single dad for 6 years now and have a beautiful 17yo daughter. When I first got custody of her she was a little rough around the edges but she saw the changes God made in my life and decided to go to church. Things got better from there and we had a great relationhip based on trust and honesty. I found out recently that honesty and trust was only one way and she had been seeing someone who was 22 behind my back. I found out last Friday that she was 5 months pregnant from this predator and Saturday she ran away. My first instinct was to give this kid a 300yd running head start and loading one bullet in my SKS as that would be sporting. Neither her mother or I knew where she was for about a day but she called my ex and said she was on a bus to her house. Needless to say I was and still am devastated and can't remember hurting like this ever. I begged God to get rid of my anger not realizing the pain would follow. All I can say is at least she is safe and away from this kid. Please pray for both of us and I can only hope this will work itself out for God's glory.
