Alex, My Son in Whom I am Well Pleased

Day 6 of our 11 year anniversary celebration of Touched by Grace on July 7, 2018, celebrates Alex, my new son.

Alex was born on April 28, 1999.

Alex lost his father at 4 years old, when his father left to start a new life. Alex was left fatherless, during his upbringing.

Alex always wanted a father and cried out for God to bring him a father. Several possible options did not yield the result that Alex hoped for.

When God brought our family into Cyprus, the Mighty God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, had Alex on His mind. His request for a father was about to be fulfilled. This was not expected on my part because I wasn't looking for another child.

Rose and I were told in Israel we would have a 5th child, or another child. When Rose and I received that information, several years ago in Israel, we just released that to the Lord, and said, if that is what you want, then let it be done unto us.

On April 28, 2018, Alex said he had a surprise for me. April 28th was Alex's birthday. Alex asked me to be his father, because God told him to do it. Out of everyone in the world, Alex told me that God chose me. God chose me? I am still wrapping my mind around the Greatness of God and his choices. My response was, “YES, of course I will be your father."

Like many of us have a Heavenly Father, we also have earthly mentor's, fathers, and father figures. I myself have had several throughout my life. God was asking me, "Todd I NEED YOU STEP UP."

Alex is smart, discerning, and an amazing listener.

Alex is an ambassador and diplomat of the highest degree in the Kingdom of God. He is an Apostle in training.

He works harder than anyone I have ever met. Even in the harshest of environments, he works harder. There is no mountain he can’t climb, nor challenge he won’t accept. When limitations are beyond his abilities, he figures things out on his own. He is a natural born leader like Alexander the Great.

He is a man of his Word.

Alex always wanted a little sister and has embraced his new brother and 3 sisters with such love and compassion.

Alex loves his new family and siblings, Josiah, Abigail, Sarah, and Rachel.

Josiah loves having a big brother and Alex is doing an wonderful job being exactly what he needs to be for Josiah. Josiah has been without a big brother his entire life. Alex you are the one God has chosen to divinely come in at the right time, and love on Josiah who is 15, as that big brother.

He is Abba's student and His SON, just like Josiah is, in whom he is well pleased.

He has a keen sense of the Father's grace and knows his Abba's demeanour.

He is Abba's covenant brother.

Alex loves all types of music.

Alex loves ketchup on everything. He doesn't like his food touching each other like Abba. Alex loves trying different ciders, eating a good hamburger. Alex puts it like this, "You know it is a good hamburger when all the flavours come together in your mouth and not one flavour over powers another."

Alex likes strawberry cheesecake ice cream.

Alex is the most teachable individual I have ever met. You only have to tell Alex once.

Alex is a self-motivator in everything he does. He loves collecting hats and working with technology. Organising strategies and strategic planning are strengths of his.

Alex is the most respected cadet in his Cypriot Army service and honoured by both the leadership and his peer cadets.

Alex is a natural athlete and fitness enthusiast.

Alex has received Jesus Christ of Nazareth as Lord and King over his life. He has received the Holy Spirit that now indwells him. Alex is sensitive to listening to the voice of the Lord through the Word of God, The Holy Spirit, and other people that God uses as Yeshua, Jesus Christ of Nazareth to Alex.

Alex loves the grace and mercy of God and His perfect Judgement. He is a lover of the AWEsome POWER of GOD, Amazing knowledge, Supernatural Wisdom, and Unexplainable love of God.

Alex has an anointing of fire upon his life and loves to serve the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. He carries an authority that is refreshing in the world we live in today. He truly is a bright light for all the world to see Yeshua, Jesus Christ of Nazareth, High and lifted up.

The Power of the Holy Spirit permeates everything about Alex’s life. Alex loves both his Father in heaven and earthly his father because of their love and passion for people. Alex truly understands what it means to be obedient to the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob.

Tonight, when the sun sets, we will begin celebrating Shabbat. I will be thanking God for all of my 5 amazing children. I will be blessing each of them with the Fathers Love and teaching them HIS WAYS. Jesus said, he is the Way, the Truth, and the Life. I pray Alex, Josiah, Abigail, Sarah, and Rachel that as we celebrate Shabbat together this weekend and for the rest of my LIFE, I will teach you the ways of God and you will always run to HIM for all that you need, he has provided. Listen and Obey the STILL SMALL VOICE.

Alex, I will never leave you, nor forsake you.

He Loves you Alex and WE LOVE YOU.

Alex You ARE MY SON, in whom I am well pleased.
