Bread for the Journey

Faithful Father

Blessed be the Lord, who daily bears us up; 
God is our salvation.  
Psalm 68:19 ESV

Today I am most thankful for a Heavenly Father who gathers me up in His arms...protects me...comforts me...and forgives me.  He is my salvation.  I sing along with Brian Doerksen's lyrics to Faithful Father...a song of praise to my faithful heavenly Father.  One day 'my heart will find it's home in you' forever faithful Father.

I had a father who held me on his lap, and carried me when I was too tired to walk on my own two feet...and led by example...and knew how to give good gifts.  I still have him...and am so thankful for that!  Not all of us have had that kind of an earthly 'daddy'.  Some have no daddy at all.   But each one of us can celebrate this Father's Day by knowing that we have a Heavenly Father who is waiting for gather us in His arms, to protect us, to carry us, to bless us with good things.  His most precious gift is that of spending eternity with Him.  Let us put our trust in the greatest Dad of all.

"Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest."
Matthew 11:28


  1. Thank you for that amazing reminder. My dad left when I was 4 years old, so I have no memories of being cherished by a dad. But I can crawl into Abba's lap today.

  2. I have tears in my eyes, Judy .. that is a beautiful post .. and I love the photo of you and your Dad ...I think you look like him, don't you?
    I too am very thankful today .. first for my own Dad who has been very present in my life and still is, for my son-in-law who is a good dad to my grandgirls and most of all for my heavenly Father whose Presence is with me always.

  3. Beautiful "bread" today Judy! I am so thankful for my goodly heritage and loving earthly father which is only a glimpse of how much our Heavenly Father loves us!
