Regarding Fathers

Della Smith Father's Day

If you had a father
You loved with all your heart
The honor will come easy
You got a real good start

But many hearts were broken
By a father here below
Perhaps they were just missing
Perhaps they dealt cruel blows

On Father’s day, we think of them
With gratitude or pain
But here we are, because they are
This truth will still remain

It’s right to honor fathers
There’s a promise that comes with it
A life that’s long and goes well
It’s in the sixth commandment

If it’s hard for you to honor
The father you were given
There is healing for your wounded soul
From Father God in heaven

He wants to mend those places
That were marred by earthly flaws
His love for you is greater
Than you ever knew there was

Don’t be afraid to trust Him
He’s not like earthly men
His love is unconditional
No matter where you’ve been

If you’ve been running from Him
Because of pain or loss
Consider running to Him
There’s healing at the cross

Luke 1:17  And he shall go before him in the spirit and power of Elias, to turn the hearts of the fathers to the children, and the disobedient to the wisdom of the just; to make ready a people prepared for the Lord.

John 14:18  I will not leave you comfortless: I will come to you.

Psalm 27:10  When my father and my mother forsake me, then the LORD will take me up.
