a hardened heart

it has been two years and one month [today] since brian died. his dad is here visiting us and has been for the past 2 months. for years prior to brian's death, he and i prayed and prayed for his father to come to know Christ as his Savior. now that brian is gone, i fear his father's heart is harder than ever. i am so saddened by this because i know that God intends his best for each of us and it is so difficult to watch someone choose otherwise. have you ever experienced this? unfortunately, he believes if he does choose Christ, he will die very soon after.

i have decided to pray more and keep my mouth silent. we have had few conversations this trip about brian's death and the circumstances. we will never know all until we stand at heaven's gates. and i will not be able to change the mind of a man who has been hurt so many times by others and is so set in his ways. God's gonna have to do the work.... plain and simple.

will you pray with me for the salvation of this man and that he would turn his heart toward Christ? the power of prayer is strong as is the power of Christ.

may God soften the heart of this man... Amen!
