Happy Father's Day
And now, with fabulous grandkids, a new moniker brings a smile to my face...Papa.
If we consider it a blessing to hear our kids call our name, think of what an honor it is to have our Heavenly Father call our name. Wow! Talk about a humbling thought. The creator of heaven and earth knows your name.
In his book, And the Angels Were Silent, Max Lucado shares how God is waiting for all His sons and daughters to come home.
"God calls your name...He's waiting for you. God is standing on the porch of heaven, expectantly hoping, searching the horizon for a glimpse of his child. You're the one God is seeking.
God is the waiting Father, the caring Shepherd in search of his lamb. His legs are scratched, His feet are sore, and His eyes are burning. He scales the cliffs and traverses the fields. He explores the caves. He cups his hands to his mouth and calls into the canyon.
And the name he calls is yours...
The message is simple: God gave up his Son in order to rescue all his sons and daughters. To bring his children home. He's listening for your answer."
