I’m not sure how my words will find you when you read them, but I pray that they find you well and bring you hope and perspective.
I would like to speak to you for a moment today concerning the attributes of a father, for they care for and comfort their children when they need comfort and encourage them when they need courage.
If these attributes can live within your earthly father, then imagine how much more so they exist within your Heavenly Father who created them.
“Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning” (James 1:17 KJV).
Sons and daughters alike, there isn’t a problem that you face that you can’t bring to your Heavenly Father; for He will care for you, encourage you, and be there for you when you need Him the most. And these are the attributes of your Heavenly Father.
If these attributes can live within an earthly father, imagine the beauty of these attributes when you pray to your Heavenly Father. Bring Him your tears, bring Him your troubles, and don’t be afraid to bring Him your brokenness.
Allow your Heavenly Father to care for you because you don’t have to be strong alone.
My dear reader, there is no failure in our weakness, for His strength is made perfect there. There is no defeat in that – just a refuge and powerful place of safety. I want you to know that you are not alone, and it is my prayer that this column will make you feel as though you have a place to belong and somewhere to call home.
