On this beautiful Father's Day, I had to write a short message to my own daddy.
My dad is one of the most amazing blessings God has given me. Although, he is technically my step-father, he is the only "daddy" I have ever known and the best one at that. It takes someone special to be a dad and that's exactly what my dad is--someone special.
I was almost fourteen years old when God gave me my dad. He makes me laugh, he listens to me, he encourages me, he teases me, and he shows me an example of my Heavenly Father. I want to thank him today for all he has done for me and wish him the best Father's Day in the world. A father is a special person in your life and I have been blessed to have my dad for the past four and a half years.
On a different note, I know there are those of you reading this who maybe don't have a father in their life or who have been hurt deeply by their father. My heart aches for you and I feel your pain in my heart. But today I wanted to encourage you with a truth that encouraged me so many times growing up when I didn't have a father...
God is your perfect Heavenly Father.
He loves you more than you will ever be able to comprehend and He will never let you down or disappoint you. He weeps with you when you are crying and He catches all your tears. He knows you inside and out and loves you just the same. He is perfect in every way and will always be there for you, to catch you when you are falling.
I encourage you to cling to that truth today and remember that your Father is the King of kings. You are His daughter or His son. Rejoice in such an amazing truth! He is our perfect Daddy!
And one more note to my dad: I love you so much. ♥
"I will be a Father to you, and you shall be My sons and daughters, says the Lord Almighty."
~2 Corinthians 6:18 (NKJV)
