Even with the story of Abraham & Isaac..it concludes with...."...many years later another Son would climb another hill, carrying wood on his back. Like Isaac, he would trust his Father to do what his Father asked." I felt like scales had dropped from my eyes once more. How I have gotten so hung up on the scary-ness of that story for...well, for as long as I've known it.....because i feared God would ask me to do something that unthinkable.
I see God's mercy differently now.
I see, once again, that I have been shown so much that I don't know.....that there must be so much more that I don't know.
So, if you need an AMAZING Christmas present for your child....that will end up being an amazing Christmas gift for your whole family...this is it.
