Happy Father’s Day

Posted In: Weekly

Happy Father’s Day to all those baby daddy’s out there. Today is your day so soak it in.

Reflecting back on the year I am again thankful for being a father to two of the finest young boys in the world. I know that everyone else has those same reflections about their children, for the most part, so this is not to rain on your parade of joy but to dwell in my own.

Sadly we live in a world where so many children grow up in an environment that is fatherless. Whether those children were raised by a mother, grandmother, family member, or foster parent through the Word of God we find that we are NOT fatherless. King David writes in Psalm 68 that our God is “A father to the fatherless”. What that means is that we are never alone, we are never forgotten, and we are forever loved.

A very well known verse is a reminder of what that father to the fatherless means. Pslam 139:13-14 states, “For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb. 14 I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well.”

On this Father’s Day 2016 know you have this Father in Heaven that absolutely adores you just the way you are in the place you are. There is nothing you have to do to earn this love and nothing you can do to lose it, and my hope is that you will accept it as it is, a free gift, and forever enjoy the benefits of having a father that will never fail you.
