Oh Lord, I pray that we will continue to be nourished by our father on earth and especially You, God. I am grateful for what my earthly father has taught me and raised me to become and know. He may have passed away, but he will never be forgotten. Surely, he is in a better place now. It is hard to believe all the grandchildren he and my stepmother has now. She may be alone, but still has all her children so close to her. I love my time with my second mother and am grateful to have her in my life still. My mother may have passed away also, but I still remember her and my father like it was yesterday. Lord, You have blessed me with the most loving parents. It is just sad that I cannot call my father up and tell him Happy Father’s Day. I can tell my brothers, who are fathers, and that is awesome, of course. I just know that this life is short. It is like a vapor. We are here one day and not the next. Even with my wife and my young girls, I love them to pieces. However, I just don’t know much longer I will be with them. I pray that I have been a good father to my children and that they remember the things I’ve taught them. May they never forget the importance of knowing You, Jesus. I pray that my children and my wife will come to a saving knowledge of what You have done for them. I am Your child and pray that my wife and my kids will also be in heaven with me when I eventually pass on from death to life. I believe in You, Lord. I trust in You. I love You. Amen.
2 Samuel 7:14,15 (KJV)
14 I will be his father, and he shall be my son. If he commit iniquity, I will chasten him with the rod of men, and with the stripes of the children of men:
15 But my mercy shall not depart away from him, as I took it from Saul, whom I put away before thee.
Happy Father’s Day to every father on earth and to our Father in heaven. Much thanks for what you are doing for your family.
