A Father Love

June 20, 2016

Happy Father Day to all the fathers and the mothers serving in the absence of fathers. To the Fathers: no body ever said it would be easy. Jesus described the difference between a Shepherd and an hireling. A real father will lay down his life to protect his children when the wolf cometh, whereas a daddy (hireling) flees at the sign of trouble or the wolf. Fathers, don’t give up! Don’t throw in the towel! Don’t run out on your family when things get tough. Endure hardship as a good soldier.

God demonstrated His love for us in John 3:16. “For God so loved the world that He gave His Only Begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life.” “God also promised that He would never leave nor forsake us regardless how difficult times may get”. Jesus demonstrates the traits of being a Real Father everyday . He supply our every needs, heal us when we are sick, comfort us when we are hurting, pick us up when we fall down and wipe away the tears from our eyes. He looks beyond our faults and see our needs, sacrificed His life that we may live.

A real father will give his last to make sure his family can have. A real father will go without food in order for his children to eat. A real father will wear torn clothes so his children can have nice clothes. A real father will never complain of what he don’t have. A real father does not need a day set aside to recognize him b/c he sacrificed everything from his heart (with love) just to see his family happy, healthy and safe.

 

Almost any man can make a child,but it takes a special man to be a father to care for their children; in good times and bad times. I recall when our children was born. I had just taken a night job operating a lift. My job consisted of working outside in the cold and heat. The winter weather was cruel. I would get so cold until I wanted to cry. If I cried, the tears would freeze on my face. I had a wife and children depending on me for shelter, medical needs and food. Therefore, quitting was not an option. I worked a regular job and three part-time jobs to make sure my family had everything they needed. Some mornings when I arrived home, my insulated coveralls was frozen and sounded like potatoes chips crinkling from the ice when I attempted to remove them. Many times, you could lean them against the wall and they would stand from being frozen. Many nights, the cold penetrated my bones, I became weary and got weak. During my weakness, God gave me strength. I know the meaning of enduring the night; that joy would come in the morning at 5 am. Fathers all over the world sacrificed to care for their children. My applause goes out to the fathers that have served in the trenches. May God continue to bless you and allow you to see the fruits of your labor.

Prayer of thanks:Father, thank You for allowing me to be a father. I made mistakes as a father by leaning to my own understanding, but You loved me still. You always made a way when I didn’t see no way. You gave me strength to carry on and I just want to say “thank You” for always being a God above all gods, a Heart-fixer, a Lawyer, Doctor and a Friend. Amen
