Our Father in heaven,
hallowed be your name.
Your kingdom come.
Your will be done,
on earth as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread.
And forgive us our debts,
as we also have forgiven our debtors.
And do not bring us to the time of trial,
but rescue us from the evil one. (Matthew 6:9-13)
I call Him Father, I call God Father.
The revolution, the peace, the joy this privilege has caused in my life is one I will talk about and live out as long as I breath.
God is amazing in many ways, but one of His most outstanding and lavish gifts to mankind in my experience is the gift of being a Father. Every time I muse over this reality, I am blown away. I find myself just smiling and having a warm fuzzy feeling inside. I feel settled, I feel encompassed by love, I feel known ( weaknesses and all) yet accepted. I feel that I belong.
