Daddy’s here!

A sweet dear friend of mine is going through some rough times…Probably one of the toughest in her lifetime…

I often wonder how I can minister to her pretty heart, but only find myself able to encourage her because the depth of it is something I cannot relate too…But God’s Word can penetrate that depth and that’s all I can offer…And oh, how powerful it is…Someone once told me we can memorize scripture all day long, but if we don’t apply it to our lives what good does that do…Sometimes it’s hard to let go and apply it, I know this…I try to do it all day long…If we just simply “believe” in His Word we are applying His Word in our lives…

Believe: (Verb) To have confidence in the truth, the existence, or the reliability of something.

So back to my friend…I’ve always felt such a connection with her yet she lives far away and we don’t talk much on the phone…But when I see her I feel like a gitty little school girl longing to talk about girly stuff…She’s way more girlier than me, I love the fashion tips…I almost find myself trying to copy her cute little outfits, but being I probably have 25 lbs on her it doesn’t look as cute as I want it to be…I could hear her now, ”Knock it off.”

Anyway, in her midst of healing I sent her something in the mail with a letter and realized I missed a part in the letter I wanted to share with her…When I realized what I forgot to tell her and meditated on it before telling her, I wept…I  realized what the connection was with her, and that the similarities we do have boil down to both of us not having that earthly fatherly love in our lives…I love my dad and he loves me the only way he knows how, but really I have not experienced the type of relationship that a daughter deserves from her father… Neither has my friend…I was not weeping about it because I long for that relationship, I wept because I realized I have the best Daddy anyone could ever ask for…JESUS!! He loves me, just because! 

I sit here and think about the person I am, and I don’t like it…It’s pretty nasty…My thoughts are nasty and I struggle daily with my flesh…Trust me people I’m not being hard on myself…When you realize that you’re dealing with a Perfect, Holy, Righteous GOD, you can relate…
When I think of JESUS all those thoughts go away…JESUS my Daddy, He chose me and His Spirit lives inside me… I’m made right by His blood and wear my shame openly knowing my Daddy took care of it all…

For to us a child is born, to us a son is given, and the government will be on his shoulders. And he will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.  Isaiah 9:6
