Finding My Father – Day 3
Today we continue into this day 3 of this 5-day devotional. Let’s lean in to see what we can grasp and learn to help us be the dads God created, purposed, and plans for us to be for our wives, kids, and the world around us!
The Bible App describes the devotional as follows: “A plan for those on a journey to become better, not bitter.“
Scripture for Today’s Devotional:
‘He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds. ‘Psalms 147:3
God’s Word is such a powerful place to go and an important place to start! There are so many ideas and thoughts that sway like waves in the water that is able to have a place that is solid and unchanging is so important. Being able to have a God who is your rock and your fortress is critical. Being able to live in a relationship based on unconditional love is key. Being able to have examples and truths to follow and pursue will help ensure we can live our lives to the full!
Let’s be the dads who learn from our Heavenly Father who heals up the brokenhearted! Let’s be the dads who are present and looking for ways to bring healing to broken relationships, broken friendships, and broken hearts by injecting Jesus into the situation and accomplishing the good works God has prepared for us to do through and in His Spirit! Let’s be the dads who are training and preparing to be able to be used by God when people are facing wounds that need to be bound up and to be able to step in and be God’s hands and arms extended to bring healing and health! Let’s be the dads who are seeking to serve! Let’s be the dads who are looking for ways to help rather than hurt! Let’s be the dads who are helping rather than hindering! Let’s be the dads God created and purposed for us to be!
