Today is Father’s day. It means different things to different people but it is still a day to remember fathers. For some people the memories are fond and filled with love, for others there is nothing but hurt and disappointment.
The reality is that fathers are human and often times make mistakes, but that doesn’t mean that they don’t regret those mistakes either. We all do things that we are not proud of. Some of us are defined by those things in the eyes of others and even in our own eyes. No one is perfect except for God.
I use the name God instead of Father because some carry so much hurt that they cannot call God Father, but the reality is that He is. He is the perfect representation of love. His love is unconditional and requires nothing of us. Even when we mess up He still loves us the same.
To all the fathers out there, you are loved by a God who will never quit loving you. To all the children out there, you have a heavenly Father whose love is matched by no one else’s and He will always be there for you.
For all the fathers out there who love there children I thank you and wish you a happy father’s day. Thank you for making an active choice to love your children to the best of your ability and I pray that your day is filled with love and happiness.
For all the fathers who feel as though it’s too late I say that it is never too late. God loves you more than you could ever imagine and is waiting to make you whole. He is waiting to make you new.
Happy Father’s Day and God bless you all wherever you are today.
