Day 168

FATHER TO THE FATHERLESS

His name is the Lord...
A father to the fatherless.
Psalms 68:4-5

FROM THE FATHER'S HEART
My child, no matter what your earthly father's limitations, I will make up for them. And when your dad has gone, you will not be a fatherless child. I am more than adequate to be the kind of father you always wanted. Some of My children had no father here. To them, I often give a double portion of My grace, just so they will know and feel My love surrounding them. I have a big family—and I love them all.

A GRATEFUL RESPONSE
To those who have no family, You whisper, "Come." You are Father to the fatherless, a hero for all times. And in heaven, sealed away forever, are the adoption papers, signed with Your own lifeblood. I'm so glad to be one of Your children. Every day should be my Father's day.

SIMPLE TRUTH

No matter where our journey takes us, God is the friend that welcomes us back home, again and again.
