Hey everyone, just wanted to give you an update on my life, and a little that is going on around here. It has been a crazy and life changing month for my wife and I. A few days after Christmas, I discovered a Facebook message at 2 am while attempting to pull an all-nighter with the youth. As for the all nighter, I didn't make it but, that night I got one of the biggest shocks of my life! A man named Steven Summers sent me a message claiming that he could possibly be my father.
So, the only way I can describe the way I felt is like when Darth Vader and Luke were fighting and Darth Vader was like "I'm your father", and Luke was SO shocked... yeah, that was me. Except, this "Maybe Daddy" didn't ask me to join the dark side or cut my hand off.
I read and responded to the message Friday night, and he and his wife came over to the Boys Home the next day so we could take a DNA test. After mailing in the test, the long wait came. For the next 10 grueling days we waited eagerly for the tests results. In the mean time, we did a little Facebook snooping to see if we even looked alike or if the guy was just crazy. The more pictures we looked at the more we could not deny my resemblance to Steve and his son. Finally, the 10th day came and the results were in. they were positive and I found out that Steve Summers was in fact my Father. At this point, however, we were not all that shocked due to how much we looked a like. Since then, My new found family members and I have been spending time together and catching up on 25 years of missed time. It has been a great few weeks!
It has been such a blessing in my life having been found and pursued by my Earthly Father. Most of you know, I love making parallels to the Gospel so just like my Earthly Father came and found me, God did the same thing. If you are reading and you are lost, feeling like you have been abandoned by everyone else on earth just know this: Jesus Christ is calling you and drawing you by His grace. Just like my earthly father sent out a message on Facebook, Jesus is sending a message to you and He needs a reply. Repent and believe the Gospel my friends because one day every knee will bow and tongue will confess that Jesus Christ is Lord. So, I urge you turn to Christ in your life time because one day it will be to late.
Grace and Peace, BBH Squad,
