The Love of a Father

As I sit here and think of all the little pieces of encouragement and articles of proper Christian living to help people make changes in their lives for the better, I am reminded of my own son. I love him more than I can verbally express. I would give anything to help him or protect him if I could, even give my life. And yet there are times in his life that I must correct him and must watch him cry because daddy was disappointed in him. Yet he doesn’t understand that my heart breaks every time he disobeys. Not because he broke MY RULES, but because I want him to grow up and be the best that he can be and because when he does grow up the amount of rules he must follow only increase.

I have rules and things in my home that he can not do, not because I hate him and want to rule over his life, but because I love him and don’t want to see him get hurt. I know once he leaves my home I want him to know that he was loved, cared for, and protected from things that might have hurt or even killed him. Then it hit me. God’s love is so much greater than mine ever could be for my son and for me. God loves us and wants the same things for us as I do my son. God doesn’t give us rules and laws to live by because He is a mean God, but just the opposite, He loves us and doesn’t want us to get hurt or even killed.

If we would be honest with ourselves, most of the pain that is in our lives, we have brought it upon us ourselves. God would say go one direction and we go in a different one, because we “know better than God”. The love of the Father is greater than you can possibly imagine, but I must say that He will bring things into our lives that hurt, to bring us back to Him. And in some cases, if He can’t get our attention then He may go a little more drastic by taking the object of our affection away. Even if that object is a family member or a spouse. Not because He hates us, but because He loves us.

The greatest joy that I have during my day is when I come home from work and my son sees me and comes running and yelling “daddy, daddy” with the biggest smile on his little face. He jumps into my arms and gives me the “biggest, bestest hug in the whole widest world”. And it breaks my heart when my son disobeys something I asked him to do. I believe God is no different. He loves His children when they run to Him for lovin’, for help, for healing, and even for the, “biggest, bestest hug in the whole widest world”.

What ever you’ve done, wherever you’ve been, God is waiting on you. He wants to forgive you and restore you, but you must make the first step toward Him. You must turn from your sin and run toward the Father. And He will be waiting for you with open arms.


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