Who’s Your Father?

  •  Who he was has affected who you are.

My father has left me with some of his scars from his childhood – – – like

  • He’s loving, kind, and gentle when not drinking
  • he beat me on occasion

Who’s your father?    Who he was has affected who you are.

  • He had an inappropriate relationship with me
  • I do not trust men

Who’s your father?  Who he was has affected who you are.

  • He is a good provider, always working
  • he is distant from me

Who’s your father?  Who he was has affected who you are.

  • He left me
  • I feel rejected

Who’s your father?  Who he was has affected who you are.

  • He is not loving
  • I feel empty

Who’s your father?  Who he was has affected who you are.

  • I have a good father
  • but he is not perfect in his love and acceptance of me

Who’s your father?  Who he was has affected who you are.

  • I don’t have a father
  • then you have an emptiness in you, a hole, a void, something missing

Who’s your father?  Who he was has affected who you are.

  • Jesus reflects his father’s love
  • embrace him
  • I and the Father are one (John 10:30 RSV)

You and I did not have a perfect earthly father, but all of those childhood hurts can be healed when we embrace Jesus who reflects his father’s heart that can heal all your hurts, rejections, and sorrows.  Let him love you.

Call to your heavenly father to bring his healing balm of love to your soul.

One morning in prayer the father came to me and encompassed me with his overwhelming protective love.
