God keeps tugging on my heart with this song – February is my birthday month. This is my song. Waiting. Hoping. Praying. Crying for my daddy to call me. See me. And get clean and sober. I wanted it more than anything in this world.
I wanted his attention so much. But he wasn’t well enough to be the father I know he wanted to be deep down. And the missing him in my life was a gaping hole in my heart. Little girls want a Daddy to protect them, hold them, and tell them they’re a beautiful princess.
Are you missing this in your life? Hurting from missing your earthly Daddy? Arms that ache to hug him? Words longing to be spoken into his ear?
Sweet sister, can I offer you a cyber hug and prayer? And best of all, hope?
Your earthly father may not be able to love you in the way you want and need – though I never give up hope for change there – but your heavenly Father loves you more than any human man ever could or will. Ever. Always.
He can fill the hole in your heart. He wants to.
Nothing can separate you from the love of God. No powers. No circumstance. No mistake. No angels. No demons. Nothing in all creation. Nothing. Romans 8:37-39
So many things can separate us from our earthly Daddies but nothing can separate us from God’s love.
Have you asked Him to be part of your life? If not, do so right now. No fancy prayer necessary. No appointment. Just simply ask Him to be part of your life and save you.
And if you know Him, ask Him to refresh your spirit and comfort those father wounds.
No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. 38 For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons,[a] neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, 39 neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord. Romans 8:37-39
