I had two earthly dads.
One never knew I existed.
The other abused the position of authority that had been given to him.
Life is hard without a dad to love & guide
through this tumultuous life.
However, I was not abandoned.
God took care of me, even before I acknowledged Him.
Beyond rescuing me from the abusive situation,
even beyond meeting my physical needs,
God kept working to heal the emotional wounds I carried.
He sought to fill in the gaps that remained in my soul.
During one Sunday morning worship at our church in Grand Forks,
God Himself stepped into that dad-shaped hole
that was in my life and in my heart.
I no longer have to wonder about what my daddy looks like…
what his name is…where he lives.
I no longer have to mourn that missing relationship.
Because of the Truth of Scripture…I now know I am no longer fatherless.
I know I have a Daddy who loves me more than I could possibly fathom.
He knows my name…and I know His.
“Those who know your name will trust in you,
for you, O Lord, have never forsaken those who seek you.”
The LORD Who Sanctifies You
