A Father to the fatherless,
a defender of widows,
is God in His Holy
This picture is from a children's Bible I had as a child. I use to read through it everyday when I was little.
I was a lonely child. My Mom and Step-Dad drank alot, and me and my little sister spent alot of time alone. Our older siblings had moved and been married and we were left alone.
We never got to see our real Dad very often because he moved away when we were little. I always felt like a fatherless child.
One day when we were at church the preacher was talking about those who didn't have fathers. Maybe their dads had died or just left them. He said God is the Father to the fatherless.
My throat started hurting and I wanted to cry. I wanted to let out all the years of anguish I felt. But I didn't want to cry in church. When I got home I did, in the safety of my own room.
But, I was also happy that God was the Father to the Fatherless. I had a Father.
If anyone out there is struggling with not having a Father, be encouraged today. God is your Father. He cares for you.
God Bless, Nita
