In light of Fathers' Day weekend, I thought this was a good writing by Joel and Victoria Osteen:

Father to the Fatherless


A scripture verse:

“Father to the fatherless, defender of widows—this is God, whose dwelling is holy” (Psalm 68:5).

And a thought


So many people today carry hurt and insecurity because they didn't have a relationship with their earthly father the way God intended. But no matter how you were raised or where you are in life today, you do have a wonderful Father, and you were born with a purpose and a destiny. God prmises to meet all your needs, and He is the Father to the fatherless and defender of widows!

Every morning when you get up, look up toward the heavens and just imagine that your Heavenly Father is smiling down on you. He loves you. He believes in you. He will guide and protect you. He will never leave you. You are His most prized possession. He has you in the palm of His hand. As you open your heart and allow Him to heal you with His love, He’ll meet every need that you have. Choose forgiveness and allow Him to strengthen and empower you to fulfill the wonderful destiny He has in store for you!

Prayer for Today:

Father in heaven, thank You for choosing me as Your own. I open my heart to You today and ask that You fill me with Your peace, love, and forgiveness as I follow Your ways. In Jesus’ Name. Amen.
