Loved by the Father
“O Lord, you are so good, so ready to forgive, so full of unfailing love for all who ask for your help.” ~Psalm 86:5
This Sunday I was on the praise and worship team at our church; it also happened to be Father’s Day. Because of the holiday, many of our songs focused on the aspect of God as a Father. One song in particular stood out to me, it was “Good Good Father,” by Chris Tomlin (If you haven’t heard it, I highly recommend finding it and listening.) In the chorus it says that God is a good, good Father; it’s who He is. It also says, “I’m loved by you; it’s who I am.”
Of all the things in this world that we could identify with, imagine identifying yourself as loved by the God of the universe, the perfect Father. It’s simply who we are. When I feel beaten down, when the voices seem to whisper (or shout) how insignificant or worthless I am, I remember that I am loved by GOD.
