God knew better

By
Real Estate Agent with Realty One Group # S.0190863

God knew better than I.  As a man, I thought I knew better than God. Still God persisted. Eventually, I listened to God's voice, not what people said. It cost me friends and my former church. But I listened to God's voice. And I helped a girl whose dad wasn't in Vegas. I looked to help her grow closer to God and to her mother. Pastors at my former church said that was sinful.

Well, she graduated honor roll from high school. And today she dedicated her daughter to Christ in the church I have been at since 2012.

I am proud of her. Despite a number of mistakes I made along the way, she became a better woman than I could have imagined. And I know she will raise Emerson to be even better.

Good morning Nina Hollander, Broker there are scars from what people said and how they left and yet it all has a purpose.

How wonderful that you listened to yourself and did what you thought you needed to do, regardless of others. The result is a changed life for Emerson and his mom.

Such wonderful pictures you share with us and I love seeing smiling faces!  I don't comprehend how helping someone out can be seen as sinful.

Rocky, our wisdom is foolishness when compared to God's wisdom.  The sooner we learn that, the sooner we can be on the right path.
