Last fall, I shared a series of stories that gave three examples of my earthly father’s caring, all of which reflected the kindness and wisdom of Father God. Clearly, God was teaching him to be the father he had never had. God helped Dad to understand what might be in our mind under various circumstances and how to help us through each situation.
If you missed those accounts, you can check them out now in the archives:
An Early Glimpse of the Father
When Is a Monster Not a Monster
When You Are Three, You Are Not Brave
Then read on to see what the Heavenly Father has to share through His Word.
When we look back on our lives, and ask God to show us His Hand in it all, we may find some examples of His involvement in our young lives through the kindness of others, if not our own father. Would you ask Him today to show you, to remind you of some specific incident in your childhood that shows you He put just the right person where you needed a special hand or heart? It is such a blessing to know that He was there all along!
****Will you be that example of Father God in the life of a child today?
