I read a post today about grieving for a father that has passed away. It brought tears to my eyes as I tried to hold back desires of having a father that loves me. I was actually wishing I could grieve for a loving father that passed away. At least I would of known that I was loved. I want to miss a father who protected me. I want to miss a father who loved me. I want to miss a father that tried to fix my hurts.
Instead, I grieve for a father who would do those things for me. I need a father who says, “I love you.” I need a father who says, “I will protect you.” I need a father who says, “I wish I could make you feel better.” For so many years I would either deny I needed those needs from a father or I would be angry and take it out on others.
I have recently discovered that I have that father. This father has loved me since birth. He created me in my mother’s womb and said, “I am good. I am loveable.” He is my protector! Although, I wish he wouldn’t of let some of the things happen to me that has, but I can have confidence that He will bring good out of all my hurts. I have already seen it happen in my life. He is my protector! He is the ultimate Lover of my Soul! He wishes he could fix my hurts but has the wisdom to know when to watch and when to interfere.
“The LORD knows all human plans; he knows that they are futile.” Psalm 94:11
“… we know that God is greater than our hearts, and he knows everything.” 1John 3:20
“It is because of him that you are in Christ Jesus, who has become for us wisdom from God—that is, our righteousness, holiness and redemption.” 1Corinthians 1:30
I love my Father with everything I have. I strive to return that love to Him each and everyday so that my heart can be filled with His love for me.
We were made to love and be loved. Only Christ Jesus can give us the love that we ultimately need to satisfy our souls.
Happy Father’s Day to the Best Father EVER!!!!
Thank you for loving me!!!!
