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.
