A Father to the Fatherless…

Psalm 68 v5 – 6 A father of the fatherless and a judge for the widows, Is God in His holy habitation. God makes a home for the lonely; He leads out the prisoners into prosperity

Some golden nuggets written from Bishop TD Jakes video about the Fatherless generation.

For children raised without fathers, there is a hole in the soul many try to fill with promiscuity, drugs and other unhealthy behavior. However, Bishop T.D. Jakes says, there is a way everyone can fill it in a positive way—by giving what you didn’t get. Find out how, he says, fulfilling that role for another fatherless child can help heal your own heart. Plus, learn how to become a father when you didn’t have one yourself.

You can give out to others what you have not received yourself and it will be given back to you. “Give and you shall receive”.

What real fathers do is make deposits in you through which you can make withdrawals for the rest of your life.

To be able to allow that spiritual part of you to heal that part of you that is wounded so that you will never go to that job interview alone. You will never be alone. Have a spiritual foundation so that you know you are never alone.

When you have been giving out you may have had an absent or deceased father in your life. There’s an aching inside of you for what you used to have.

You cannot reclaim yesterday or reclaim those moments. Time keeps on moving on so it cannot be the same. But what you can do is appreciate and embrace what you have right now and to allow it to feel the vacancy of what you didn’t get yesterday.

Once we let go of our ideals or fantasies of what things could have been like, and embrace what they are like now, it gives both the father and the son or daughter the feeling of being accepted for where I am.

The father is just as afraid as the son. We are creating a ramp so that  father who has been de-railed can get back on track to building a wholesome relationship with those he loves.
