Unfortunately, society doesn’t give #Father’s Day the same recognition and fanfare that we give #Mother’s Day. I’m sure it’s because it’s easier for a male to leave or abandon a child than it is for a child’s mother. There aren’t any, Who’s the Momma Shows on TV. It’s rare in comparison that a woman will walk away or abandon a child, but unfortunately, I know that it does happen. I feel your pain if you have been abandoned by one or both parents. My focus, however, in this post is on fathers because their celebrated day is approaching.
Let me say loudly to the many, many, many, fathers that have done the right thing and have stood strong and have never left or abandoned their biological children or someone else’s child physically, emotionally, psychologically, or spiritually: We love you and the sacrifices you have made. We applaud you tremendously! You have done the right thing, you have stood the course, and your reward is in heaven.
My emphasis in this writing is to give hope to the fatherless, the abandoned, the forsaken, and comfort to those who have had a good father but their dad has passed away and they will never be able to dance with their father again, have them escort them down the aisle, listen to them, or hear their wise counsel.
Listen to the lyrics in the song, #Through the Eyes of My Father, sung by #Brianna Haynes. All of us have access to a Heavenly Father who loves us unconditionally. He gave his life for us and loves us at our worse. He calls us the apple of his eye and promises to give us our heart’s desires. His word says he will move mountains in our favor and in spite of our beginnings, he wants to make us the Head and not the Tail. He promises to shelter us under his wings and though we may go through some fiery trials, he tells us that no weapon formed against us will prosper.
Trust him. Draw nigh to him and he will draw nigh to you. God loves you with an everlasting love, even more than an earthly father. I dare you to put your trust in him! Happy Father’s Day to my father and to my Heavenly Father. I love you both!
Although my father and my mother have abandoned me, Yet the Lord will take me up [adopt me as His child] Psalm 27:10 AMP
