Thank You for being the Father that meets all I need

Some of us have been blessed with a well-functioning family; with a father that is a good provider, protector and teacher of their children, but many times, children are separated from their father due to marriage issues, or even worse, they grow up with an abusive or unloving, uninvolved father. These fathers leave us feeling abandoned, alone, unvalidated and even unworthy of love, for some.

God is often referred to as our Heavenly Father. For those of us who have not had a close relationship with our own father, this may not settle well with us at first. We can see Him as Creator, as omnipotent, and all-knowing, but the intimacy of God being our Father is difficult to grasp without having lived with that in our day-to-day lives.

As we learn to trust God in our walk, He tenderly draws our hearts closer and closer to Him. He does not push the intimacy upon us, yet waits for us to figuratively walk into His open arms. So many times, when life has been difficult for me, I have had a real sense of the loving, tender Father that God truly is.

At times, I have felt as if He has pulled me onto His lap to comfort me and love me through my tears when I’ve felt completely alone. His love blankets over me like the warmth of a soft, fleece blanket on a chilly winter’s night.

Take little steps to learn to see God as your Heavenly Father. Allow Him into your heart in this very intimate way and see the benefits and feel His love tangibly run through and over you. He will never let you down.

Matthew 7:11 If you, then, though you are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father in heaven give good gifts to those who ask him!

  1. This is beautifully written and truly inspirational. Thanks for reminding us all that we are descendants of the most high no matter how loved or unloved we feel with the family on earth in which we was given. Grateful to have a father named God who loves me even though I cannot physically see Him, I do feel His presence.
