O Lord, open my lips,
That my mouth may declare Your praise.
I HAVE A FATHER
I have a Father who watches over me day and night. He loves me just as I am; never giving up on me when I am weak or disappoint Him. He showers His abundant love on me; blesses me with all that I need and loves most of all to share more and more of Himself with me.
I have a Father Who guides my path through life. He chastises me when I need it and comforts me when I am hurting or lonely. When someone around me hurts or causes sorrow to my soul; He takes my hand
hugs me, close and says, “Never mind, my child. I love you more than any human being can and My love is sufficient for you.”
My Father brings joy to my spirit. He gladdens my heart and is my constant Companion. He knows what is best for me and He gently nudges me in the way He knows I should go. He never complains when I busy myself with things of this world; forgetting Him for a time. He patiently waits for me to remember Him and I realize He has been pouring His love out on me even when I was too busy to give Him my time. He is so steadfast in His care of me.
My Father is a King! Heaven and earth and all that are in it belong to Him, as He created all of it.
Heaven is His Throne and earth is His footstool. He is Teacher, Physician, Comforter, Creator, Savior and Friend. He knows my thoughts before I ever form them. He knows all my yesterdays, my todays and my tomorrows. He knows his plan for my life and gently leads me toward it. I sometimes veer off course or take short detours, but He never lets me get so far off the path that I cannot make it back. He patiently waits for me to look up and see Him waiting with His arms outstretched to lead me back onto the narrow path that leads to Heaven.
Bad health can destroy my body, but, even then, He will be waiting for me to take His hand and let Him comfort my fears of the illness. “You see, Lord, it is not death I fear; but the pain and very act of dying.
I know for certain, I could not go down that path without You. It would be much too frightening to do so. When the time comes for me to walk through the valley of the shadow of death, take my hand tightly, Lord, and walk through that veil that separates this life from the next with me.
Oh yes, I have the most wonderful Father! His Name is God. I hope you would know my father and His loving care as I do. Then you too, would know, this wonderful Father of mine.
