I want to shout out a praise to my Heavenly Father for giving me such an incredible earthly father! I love and respect my Dad more than you could imagine and he has always been my wise spiritual counselor. He prays with me and supports me. It makes me consider how my Dad loves me more than I will ever know and what I do know, blows my mind with gratitude. And I try to wrap my mind around how much God loves me a million times more than that. I am blessed to have a Dad as a good example. I weep for those who were abused or neglected by their Dads. Those could have a harder time warming up to a Heavenly Father as God and I have seen it. One story that breaks my heart is about a friend I grew up with. Her Dad converted to Judaism before she was born. He also raped her and molested her. On top of all that, he wanted her to call him "Abba" That is so sick and angers me.
Having our Dad's in our lives showing us God's love is so important. Praise God for the "stand up men" Dad's who follow Jesus and guide us to Him.
And pray for my friend,I will call-- "A"
May we all walk in love today.
