Cami’s been writing acrostic poetry lately. I thought I’d give it a try for Fathers’ Day.
I am blessed beyond measure in the father category. My dad and I have always been close. “Pop” is still one of my favorite people to talk to. My husband is an amazing father to our daughter. For both of these precious men, Yahweh, the One True God, is their example, the Daddy they try to imitate in their daddy-ing here on earth.
What do all these fathers have in common? Effective fathers are:
Faithful —For Your faithful love is as high as the heavens; Your faithfulness reaches to the clouds. Psalm 57:10
Available —Do not fear, for I am with you; do not be afraid, for I am your God. I will strengthen you; I will help you; I will hold on to you with My righteous right hand. Isaiah 41:10
Trustworthy —For the word of the Lord is right, and all His work is trustworthy. Psalm 33:4
Honest —Into Your hand I entrust my spirit; You redeem me, Lord, God of truth. Psalm 31:5
Earnest —I am Yahweh, that is My name; I will not give My glory to another, or my praise to idols. Isaiah 42:8
Reliable —Yet I call this to mind, and therefore I have hope: Because of the Lord’s faithful love we do not perish, for His mercies never end. They are new every morning; great is Your faithfulness! Lamentations 3:21-23
Thank you, Pop, for loving me well.
Thank you, Michael, for loving me and our girl well.
Thank You, Abba God, for loving us all well.
Humbled and blessed to be so loved,
