In his post, Gary reminded his son that God sees his struggles and has chosen him to cope with them.
“You’ve already gone through what most would rather not go through. You’ve been hit, you’ve been targeted, you’ve been judged and unforgiven in so many ways by people who don’t know much about who and what you really are,” he said.
The older Valenciano admitted he rarely comes to the defense of his son but it is only because he believes there is no use explaining to people with “no hearts.”
He also shared what God “revealed” to him recently.
“He isn’t after the perfection of our performance but the persistence of our pursuit… of Him. It was never promised to be an easy talk to follow Jesus son, but you have proven time and time again that you are passionate with the things you love and you are willing to persevere for those who mean so much to you,” he said.
“So let all others say what they want to… He sees your struggles and know you’ve chosen to cope with it,” he added.
Just recently, Gab opened up once again on his battle with clinical depression. In his Instagram post, he mentioned how grateful he is for being surrounded by beautiful people while he copes.
