A Father who Cares

80px-A_U_S__Army_infantry_first_sergeantA father who cares. In honor of Father’s Day.

“Cast all your anxiety on Him because He cares for you” (I Peter 5:7)

On Father’s Day the pastor spoke on the importance of an honorable dad. But as he spoke, tears slid down her face, and she quickly closed her eyes to hide the pain. She now realized how deep the loss of an unfulfilled relationship was. She was also afraid.

The love of fathers for their children always caught her eye. It was like a bubbling waterfall. But, for her, that part of the puzzle was missing.

She knew her father didn’t want her. But her need also made love difficult to understand.

Over time, and through the years, she had become obsessed in her search for a father’s love. “But why did I come to church on Father’s Day?” she whispered. “Why am I here? I don’t have a father.”

It was then the Holy Spirit whispered in her ear. “You have a father,” he said. “God is your father. And He will make everything right.”

A calm, peaceful feeling instantly settled over her spirit. “This is going to be a good day after all,” she said, and smiled.

But after today she can rest in the arms of her heavenly Father. He’s the father she always wanted, and needed.
