We all have fathers, biological and spiritual. Whether you love and know your earthly Dad, or whether he has died or left you, your Heavenly Father is always there for you.
Fathers Day can be a difficult time for some people, especially if your memories of your physical father are tainted by pain or grief.
You need to know that our God is a loving father, who cares more for us than we can ever comprehend. He sent his only begotten son to die for our sins, sent his Holy Spirit to comfort and strengthen us and has left a host of messages for us in the Holy Bible. All so that we will reach out to him and draw close as his child.
On Father’s Day June 21st, 2015, read His promises and feel His love.
