Someone you come across today is in great need of knowing you care for them. Please don’t miss them. Listen, touch and genuinely care. You may not see the result but it will be supernatural.

If your dad was nothing like the father we described yesterday, I’m sorry. Don’t let your dad define your God. Your dad’s inability to love you well is not a reflection of you in any way and does not mean you’re unlovable. The intimacy we talked about yesterday between you and God is not only possible it’s what He wants more than anything. Don’t be afraid, if you come to Him with open arms he will always pick you up and love you.

Is there anything better than when your child needs you to hold them, whisper love and blessings to them and just sit still together? I more than imagine it’s the same for the Lord. Nothing brings Him more joy than when we come to Him, fall into His arms, give our burdens to Him and just sit still allowing His love to cover it all. If you could see the smile He gets when He thinks of you.

Hiding our shortcomings, our struggles, our insecurities or our fears only gives them power over us. Bringing them into the open, sharing them with someone you trust and who is not afraid to be honest about their’s weakens the hold they have and is the beginning of true change.
