There was a time I wouldn't talk to him on the phone for about a year and when he came to visit I wouldn't see him. I was so hurt and damaged. He was gone in some major parts of my life when he was suppose to rescue me from people hurting me. I held him captive in a place of unforgiveness for a very long time.
Don't worry friends we now have a relationship & I have forgiven him (a lot of that has to do with my husband's encouragement to get to know him) & I just never knew how much my dad loves me
How does this mess translate to God?
As I said I never compared our relationships until this book I'm reading and she compares her relationship with her parents to God.
Crazy thing is, earlier in the day before reading that part in the book, God started working on this thinking and was preparing for me to really think upon this.
So after reading the chapter that the comparing father to Father was in, I really started thinking how my relationship with my earthly father does in fact translate to my relationship with my heavenly Father.
What a wonderful thing for me to see this, because now I can better focus on His truths and grow deeper with Him!!!
Have you thought about this comparison before? I'd love to hear your thoughts.
