Just a word of encouragment. I am a youth pastor and pastor/preacher in training. In my few years since becoming a Christian I have found the two strongest and most powerful things a Christian can do is; to develop a relationship and allow it to grow by nursing it and feeding it and to believe and practise the power of prayer.
You young lady are doing both. Be encouraged you will make a difference in your Father’s life, just remain strong and continue to keep the lines of communication open both to your earthly father and your Heavenly Father.
You are one of a kind. Most young people long for the relationships that havebeen broken but do nothing to restore them. Take this relationship and these prayers to the Lord, ask Him to grow them for His glory, then give Him the glory and credit He deserves as you sit back and watch the changes. God bless. and BELIEVE.
