I like Robbie Williams, he’s come out of the ashes and risen to love Jesus, to turn his life around and then to write lyrics like these. Everyone deserves a father like this.( see lyrics to song “GO GENTLE” by Robbie Williams-see link below)
While almost any man can father a child, there is so much more to the important role of being dad in a child’s life. A father’s role is so important, he has to be a:- caregiver, protector, provider, teacher, nurturer, advisor, psychologist, nurse, a friend and more. A father’s role is central to the emotional well-being of their children especially during those formative years till the age of about 5 years. A father has to wear many hats and they cannot be good at all of them.
The Christian father is really an instrument in God’s hand. A father’s first responsibility is to acquaint his children with Scripture. The means and methods that fathers may use to teach God’s truth will vary. As the father is faithful in role modelling, what children learn about God will put them in good standing throughout their earthly lives, no matter what they do or where they go.
We live in a broken world, no judgements needed, fathers have issues too.
If your earthly father cannot or could not be the caring, nurturing father that you deserved, allow God the Father to be your father for you, for healing to occur ……..
SURRENDER TO GOD
ASK GOD TO BE YOUR FATHER
SURROUND YOURSELF WITH GOOD ROLE MODELS
ALLOW JESUS TO TOUCH YOU AND TRANSFORM YOU
IF NEEDED, SEEK HELP FROM A CHRISTIAN COUNSELLOR
