Fatherless

Alone and abandoned; the smiles you fake
He brought you into this world, but you feel you’re a mistake
Can’t recall when he last held you or was ever truly there
Emotionally he’s absent; he seems to never care

You strive for his approval; long for his concern
He lets you down as always; you wonder when you’ll learn
Nails of sadness pierce your heart---day after day
You feel forsaken…you hope it will change

I can see the emptiness---with you I have cried
I understand the loneliness of being denied
I share in the pain of being forsaken
I relate with the nails and the abuse you have taken

I want to carry every burden that is weighing you down
I want to give you hope and a smile for your frown
I want to assure you, you are here for a reason
These sorrowful times are only for a season

You felt you were fatherless, but your real daddy is Me
For I’m the one who formed you before you ever came to be
I have great plans for you…I’ll mend your broken heart
If you give your life to Me, I will never depart

Sweet child, I love you---more than you can understand
Despite your brokenness, please trust Me and take My hand
I’ll lead you down the path of Truth that will surely make you free
No matter what comes down that road, you can always count on Me

Though trials come into your life, and it seems there is no way
There is a peace I have for you---to get you through each day
Please don’t listen to the lies you hear---that your life is not worth while
For I don’t regret creating you…I’m proud that you’re My child


If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW

Many can relate to this message. Your words do strike a chord and I hope they will be published. It would make a great Christian song.
