I had a huge falling out with my daughters. My wife and I were on the verge of divorce. We resumed going back to church. The lesson a few weeks after was on fasting to get closer with God. The next week I fasted through breakfast and lunch for a week and really took those times to read scripture and get closer to a God that I had really gotten away from for a long time. As I would pray out in the parking lot at work each day for lunch, I could feel the connection with my God growing stronger. I was totally absorbed with god helping me and my family members to reunite and for my daughters to forgive me. I would literally beg God for forgiveness and ask for a breakthrough after months of feeling total separation from the ones I love the most in my life.
Then, on Saturday after a week of praying and fasting and on my knees begging, I heard the words from my daughter. Dad, I forgive you! Just like that. I couldn't believe my ears. That is how God works. You have to put all of your trust in Him, and He will come through.
