Our Father

It's Father's Day! It is time to show appreciation for dad with handmade and store bought gifts, cards, and meals. Really though, most dads just appreciate spending time with their kids, especially dads with young adult and older adult children. It is often difficult for dads to spend time with their children because work and life get in the way for dad's and for their adult children.

Just like our earthly father enjoys time spent with their children, our Heavenly Father does as well. He wants nothing more than to have a close relationship with each one of them. He wants them to be healthy, happy, and to live life to the fullest. He sees the potential in each one of his children and longs for them to live up to the potential they have. If you are one who spends time with him, you undoubtedly know the sounds of his voice, the tender touch of his embrace and long to spend time with him each day.

Our Father is gracious; he is tender hearted, kind, patient and loving. Our Father is available, able and strong. He knows you. In fact, he created you. Our Father wants to hear from you daily and often. He loves when you check in to just say thank you and tell others about all he has done for you. He is interested in you and watches over you. Even when you are too busy for him, he thinks about you and wonders when you will be spending time with him. After all, he has provided you with all you have and he loves you so very much. Earthly fathers are wonderful but none can compare to our Heavenly Father the Most High King of Kings.

For the Father himself loves you, because you have loved me and have believed that I came from God. John 16:27
