Make The First Move


How's your relationship with your dad?  Have you cut him off emotionally waiting for him to make things right between you? 


This week I am going to share with you a powerful truth that has helped me make the first move to reconcile with those who have hurt me. 
Have you heard someone say, "Time heals all wounds?" If that were true, then why are so many families still hurting, after years of waiting for the offender or the wounded to make the first move.  I think it is better to say, Time without someone making the first move keeps relationships from being reconciled.

Today we are going to learn about how blessing your dad can not only change his story but can be secret to healing your relationship with him.  

"3:9 With it (our tongues), we bless our Lord and Father, and with it, we curse people who are made in the likeness of God. 3:10 From the same mouth come blessing and cursing. My brothers, these things ought not to be so. (James 3:9–10 ESV)

1. Understand that your dad was made in the image of God.   
(Even those who are opposite you politically) :-)
2. Use your tongue to speak life over your dad.
3. Find ways to bless your dad. 

It is never too late to transform your story with your dad!

I would love to hear from you! Comment and ask questions below! 

Praying for you.

Ed
