When I was little, my dad lifted me to the ceiling like this. He gave my sister and I breakfast in bed every day of our lives till the day he died. He only displayed kindness and generosity. He let me fall asleep in his arms every night. When he died my world momentarily ended. Five months later a friend invited me to church...
I sensed GOD'S presence, I heard Him knock on the door of my heart, and I made Him my Lord. Some struggle with the fatherhood of God. I never did because I understood the perfect love of an earthly father, enabling me to receive with ease the love of a Heavenly Father.
Don't let the failings of this world rob you of the wonder and blessing of all He has for you. Yes, its true - Salvation comes with faith. You step beyond what you know, into what He knows and discover who you really are... a son or daughter of the Most High, created in His image, capable of greatness, destined for a world beyond this.
HIS REDEEMING LOVE IS A PERFECT FIT FOR EVERYONE.
