Psalm 68:5                                                  Be a Father to the Fatherless
This morning was one of those mornings when I just had to sit awd wait on Father’s guidance on what to write. As my mind wandered it hit me like a ton of bricks.  We are created in the image of him who creates everything.  He is names as thee Father to the Fatherless.  We are his instruments on this earth for the establishment of all things that are built into his purpose.  Our Father places within us opportunities to be that Father to the kid who’s Father has walked out or worse yet died.  We as believers are the ones who have the responsibility to be that Island in a storm.  We are to be the one who gives a kid a sense of stability.    I have seen the results when kids have lost Dad, or Dad was shall we say was totally negative influence on his children.  Neither is pretty.  My encouragement today is this.  Be you a man or woman this can be accomplished.  When you are brought into the life of him/her without a Father, put your hand on their shoulder smile and be a friend.  Be willing to listen to their frustrations over the whole situation. And don’t give up, just don’t give up.
Go in peace
