1: Dear Son, I want nothing more than for you to always keep God's Word, live in His truth, and fulfill His purpose for your life. May you live in all the goodness that God has for you. May you be perfected by His love and life flowing through you. May you learn to not rely on your own strength so that you grow weary, but rather to lean on the Lord's strength so that you are renewed in His presence. May you always trust His working in your life.
