I can’t write a special tribute to a Dad I never had. When I think about my child-hood, it only makes me sad.
The man in my life to play, hold my hand and protect me was never there.
I was abandoned and placed in the hands of wicked people; constantly abused, without proper care.
It was only by the grace and protection from my Father above, that I was rescued from the depths of hell; eventually shown true and genuine love.
For Father’s Day, I didn't buy my Dad a present or even give him a call.
I’ve tried to make him love me; and he’s rejected it all.
I’ll never understand how a father can't love his own daughter, accepting her as she is;
I’ve battled rejection, pain, emotional scars and trauma; all because I was his.
The least he could do was love me, showing me that he cared;
but our dysfunctional relationship was damaged beyond repair.
I’ve cried and prayed so hard; asking God what needed to be done.
I wrote him a note of apology; asking him again for our hearts to unite as one.
His response to me was NOTHING; and that response meant EVERYTHING.
So I sit here wondering what I would do; if I had a father whose love was true.
How would I be different; what would my heart be like?
Would I be a better mother, a more respectful or caring wife?
The answer is simple; it's been with me all the time.
It's not all about my Earthly Father; but about my Creator who loves me deeply and calls me, “Mine”. It's about my Heavenly Father above; the one meeting all my needs and completing me with his perfect love.
He heals my brokenness; comforts me and heals my pain.
He listens when I talk; drawing near when I call upon his name.
He will never leave me nor forsake me; I don't fear his rejection;
he is mighty and always showing me great affection.
And to our Fathers who have abandoned us for whatever reason;
we pray for you during this “Father’s Day Season.”
May God above fill you with his powerful love;
May your hearts be changed; and may you experience healing from your own pain.
It’s our hope that someday you will find the same joy and love that’s seen us through;
and you will invite that same love to be your Savior too.
The truth is that nothing in this World fills or satisfies like the love of Jesus;
he creates peace in our minds and joy in our spirits.
And so on this “Father’s Day” I won’t be angry, upset or sad;
my heart is thankful as I say I love you; and Thank you to the World’s Best Dad!
I love you God! You are the Best Father; ever!
I know you are always with me; leading and taking care of me on life’s beautiful endeavors.
"And I am convinced that nothing can ever separate us from God's love. Neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither our fears for today nor our worries about tomorrow--not even the powers of hell can separate us from God's love." (Romans 8:38)
