My 11 year old is a “wretched man”…

Another “Daddy bragging” moment if you will be kind enough to indulge me…

Caleb, 11 years old, has a friend in Denver, also named Caleb.  We haven’t seen their family for about a year, and they were planning to drive up this afternoon to stay with us for a few days.  This morning Denver-Caleb’s mom called, saying she wasn’t feeling the greatest, and they may not come.  Our Caleb began “praying, and praying, and praying” (his words)…

When they called later to say that they would be coming, our Caleb said, “It is so amazing that God would answer the prayers of such a wretched man as me!”  He had tears in his eyes…

Wow!  Lord, keep building that kind of “reality” into his soul, so that he leans on You most heavily!

    • Caleb, thanks so much for sharing. It’s hard for adults to admit how wretched we are. You are truly a special boy. Thank you so much for sharing your story.
