My son and his friends made it through the heats and because of their excellent performances and they are now deservedly in the final.
As a dad, I want to support my children in anything they do but what makes supporting my son easier tonight is that he is a really, and I mean really talented musician.
When we turn to him, God adopts us into his family and we become his children.
God cheers for and supports us because he loves us but there are also moments when he celebrates with us when we do well or acheive something.
It’s an amazing feeling seeing someone who we care about achieves something amazing or that we know that they found difficult.
God’s love for us is everlasting and unconditional but God loves it when we find fulfillment and when he sees us grow and change.
Do you know you are loved by God?
What have you done recently to make God proud?
If your instinct is to say nothing, then I would encourage you to think about it some more and even ask someone who knows you well and I think you will be surprised. If God is at work in you then there is a good chance you have made him proud in some way.
However my son performs tonight, I will be cheering him on.
However we perform today, God our father cheers us on and I hope that we can live in such a way that we make him proud.
