No More Tears.


Songs of Our Fathers

     This post goes out to all that’s lost a loved one, especially a father. As we prepare for Fathers Day weekend we enjoy spending time with our fathers and honoring him, but for those of us that don’t have a father due to an early passing, neglect, divorce, or just have never been involved in your life, please let me take the time to honor you. The heartbreak and loneliness that a fatherless child endures is beyond anything in this world. Trying to understand the big question, “Why?”” Why has daddy died or left?”, or “why is daddy passed out on the couch all the time?” or” why does he work so much?”. Any of these familiar? I know for me my biggest question was “Why did daddy have to die?” 

       I have wrote about this before, when dad passed away when I was younger, but this time I want to take the time to thank all of you around the world who have made the choice, no matter what to succeed in the eyes of our heavenly father and lay your burdens at his feet. I have forgiven my father for passing at a young age, and I realize today it was because God loved me that this happened. Though I went to hell and back for about 10 years, living a life of self-destruction and  failure, I have now been sober and living in grace for almost 8 years, and today I truly believe that my earthly father is proud of me.

    I understand the hurt and pain that come along with losing a daddy, but I am here to tell you that you have a heavenly father that loves you more than you could ever understand. He has a love that goes deeper than the ocean and he not only loves us, but disciplines us as well. He carries us, walks with us, and talks with us on a cool morning with sun coming alive. He searches for us through the darkness and debris of this life until we come face to face with His omnipotent presence and says, “let me love you.” God loves us so much, he gave his one and only son to die on the cross for us, and that my friend is the greatest love known.

   He is the author of love and and His majestic presence in our lives is something we truly don’t deserve, so my friends, no more tears. No more tears on a lonely night thinking about “What if?” Or “Would life be different if daddy was around?” No more tears when were around our friends and their dad is a shining star of what a father is to be. No more tears, because this is were the healing begins, in the hands of Christ.  Its true that a fathers love for the son is like none other, and God, our heavenly father has a love for us that’s perfect.

    So my question is, “Will you let Him heal the hurt?” So you can say no more tears on a lonely night? Thanks for reading!!!! Be Blessed!!!!!

Dreaming A Dream.


Read this In silence!.. Thank you Lord for everything . Forgive me of all of my sins.. Heal me from the hurts from my past..I love You and need You!! Cover me with Your precious and Holy Blood, my family, my friends, my life projects.. .Give me Your dreams Lord. Bless and protect everyone that seeks You, needs You and believes In You. If you love God and you are not ashamed of Him, put this on your wall for a day and you will see what He will do.

I copied this prayer from a friends Facebook page, it really touched me and I wanted to share it on my blog. My favorite part of this is where it says “Give me your dreams Lord”.  I never really thought about this until now, but God wants us to have His dreams at the heart of our lives also. He has dreams for us that we could never quite imagine, so tonight I’m focusing on His dreams for me.

This is a powerful unique prayer because the author is holding nothing back, uncensored love and devotion for our Heavenly Father. If you were to tell me 7 years ago that I would be doing what I’m doing now, I would have laughed you out of the bar. Life, today is better than its ever been and its a direct result of Christ. Period.

So tonight friends as I have dinner and enjoy an evening with the Lord let me leave you with this thought:

What if we all came together and took a hold of the dreams the Lord has for us? Think about it.

Thanks for reading!! Be Blessed!
