Postcards from my dad: Andy G

In a time when families are broken down, blended up and statistically you are more likely to be missing a solid father figure in your life, we decided to ask some of our friends who we think make great dads, spiritually, biologically, to the church, and to the student generation, to write to you. So just in case your dad never got to speak into your life in the way you'd hoped, here's a postcard from dad to you. 

 

I don’t know if you’ve come across the phrase “too good to be true”, it’s usually used when something is so good in a way that is difficult to believe. If you say that something seems too good to be true, you are suspicious of it because it seems better than you had expected, and you think there may something wrong with it that you have not noticed.

There is a truth about God that can become the anchor for your soul and a foundation for you build upon now that you're beginning the journey of adulthood. This truth is this: “God is Good". More than a positive thought, theological concept or Biblical statement, what you do with these three words will define your reality and determine your destiny. What you believe about God’s goodness will reveal how you will respond to the trials and circumstances of everyday life. Your view of God impacts everything! I encourage you to believe that God is good, in fact he is better than you think! 

Blessings

Andy
