A Dad’s Burden Relieved
You might think of Align as a ministry to young moms, which we are. But we’re also a ministry for dads. Nearly a third of our clients are young men who faithfully attend our parenting courses and are earning baby care essentials like diapers, wipes, and formula for their little ones – just like our mom clients do.
One of our young dad clients has had a relationship with Jesus for years, but lately he hasn’t been living as though he does. He’s dealing with a lot of anger and frustration in his relationships with people connected to his child. During a recent session, he broke down and said to his advocate, “I’m sick of carrying this!” He ended up rededicating his life to Christ. They didn’t get to any of the Practical Fatherhood curriculum that day. God apparently had greater things in mind for this young man.
Psalm 103:12-13 says, “as far as the east is from the west, so far has He removed our transgressions from us. As a father has compassion on his children, so the Lord has compassion on those who fear Him.” Friends, when young dads… or when you and I believe in Jesus, God removes from us the heavy weight of our sins, and we are free.
If you know of a young dad who needs our help, please tell him about us. He can walk in to any of our four centers, or he can learn more about us at AlignPregnancyServices.com.
We have all been created for Christ.
