There’s an old song that says, “You can’t always get what you want,” and although I don’t necessarily want to promote the song or the singer, the statement holds some truth.
Scrolling through social media on Father’s Day weekend brings this truth to a glaring reality when you’re a daughter of a broken home and a not so idealistic parental relationship.
However, these are also the perfect moments for God to do what He does best. His Word says, “A father to the fatherless, a defender of widows, is God in his holy dwelling. God sets the lonely in families…” Psalm 68:5-6.
Throughout my life, He has brought incredible “fathers” to fill the void, and I am eternally grateful for them and for all He has done. ❤️
So, if you find yourself in a similar predicament, LOOK UP.
Your Heavenly Father loves you and is waiting for you.
And look horizontally, He will bring those father figures close when you need them. 💞
He heals the brokenhearted And binds up their wounds.Psalm 147:3
