NOTES TO A WOUNDED FATHER
…reflections of a fellow in Scar!
Dear Wounded Father,
A look at our past dreams and dreams of the future will enable us make the most of today.
It’s Father’s Day. Possibly no one would have called or told you happy Father’s Day. Possibly the needs and challenges of the moment are overwhelming.
I share with you as a wounded father who has experienced healing and on the path of healing.
- Hello from the past where you had dreams, hope, and aspirations of living a great life.
- Greetings from the past where you dreamed of marrying a great woman and building a great home.
- Hello from the past where you believed everything is possible and you are ready to give all for your sanity and family.
- Greetings from the past where you were strong in the faith and believe you can move mountains and with God nothing is impossible.
Yes! The present is full of pains, burdens, bills, questions, quarrels, needs, and more; Yes! The present is also full of opportunities, blessings, fruits of your past investments, friends, people, and God.
Today may the hope of the future move you to connect with God The Ancient of Days; today may the forgiveness you enjoyed in the past enable you to forgive others; today may the words you shared with that wounded friend encourage you to share with someone.
Today may the answered prayers you had yesterday move you to pray and ask for help; today may the help you gave inspire you to receive help from God and his people.
It is to dream again. It is time to let go of the pain. It is time to step out again. It is time to forgive and move on with life.
Being wounded does not make you less of a father. Being wounded only affirm that you are human and have the opportunity to grow. Being wounded only shows your need also for the Father.
I share your pain because I carry a scar from past wounds.
If no one cares be assured I care for you and much more God the Father cares for you!
Your Brother With Scar!
