Everyone thinks it's the career to aim for. That it is the ultimate dream of any homeschooling parent to once and for all quieten the critics, the final proof that what we did, and how we did it, all those years was not just enough, it was more than enough.
It is not.
He was tempted by winning, by being the best. And he was tempted by others' disappointments and regrets, by titles, by job opportunities and by knowing that it would make those close to him, those that are sacrificing to get him through university, proud.
He was tempted, but he did not fall.
He stayed true to himself and to his dream. He pressed into God for reassurance, he listened carefully and he made the decision once and for all. And that makes me proud. It makes me proud that he knew Who to ask and how to listen for that final word. That he took that mighty leap of faith to trust God and not the fears of men.That he put winning aside and instead chose obedience. And peace.
You see, the ultimate dream of any parent, homeschooling or not, is to have a child that is happy and fulfilled, a child that is living his unique purpose.
And he is.
You hear it when he talks Anatomy and Movement. When he shares his results. He eats, breathes and lives Physiotherapy. And yes, there aren't that many successful, well known guys in Physio but maybe you should take note of this one. He's going places!
