On Father’s Day, we honor the dads that have guided and reared us into the adults we are today. We remember their steadfastness and consistent strength.
On Father’s Day, we honor the men that are raising their children as well as those that are not biologically their own.
We honor grandfather’s that must play both roles. We honor Uncles that rise to the occasion and friends of our families who are a wonderful role model.
I salute you today and every day. May God continue to bless you!
Unfortunately, there is a dark side to fatherhood for many children. We can all attest to knowing both adults and children who carry bitterness and resentment towards their father. Though it hurts, trust the word of God. He promised never to leave you nor forsake you. The psalmist said in Psalm 27:10” though my father and mother forsake me, the Lord will receive me.
God is here to comfort you and to mend your broken heart, just hand your pain over to him. Let him know that the absence of your natural father still hurts you. Yes God already knows but he wants you to acknowledge it also and to give him your pain. God may not change your Father and bring him into your life, but I know firsthand that he will wrap you in his love.
God knows how to keep you and give you the emotional stability that is needed. My prayer is that men will begin to rise to the occasion. In your weakness, Fathers know that the Holy Spirit will take hold of your mind, hearts, and soul and empower you to be a great dad.
Remember that our heavenly Father is available to help you. Put your trust in God and not in an absentee Father.
