That you may be filled with all the fullness of God. Ephesians 3:19
My father was an extremely good financial provider. Intelligent and hard-working, he excelled professionally. But his career achievement often took his time and attention away from home. Long trips and work days left him short on family time.
I longed for a Daddy who was home.
Perhaps you’re like me and your relationship with your father left you with lack. Maybe your dad left your family through divorce or death. Even those who experience intimacy with their daddy, find their hearts wanting.
Over the years I have held the cup of my heart out to many things – achievement, relationships, perfection. These all filled the space of my life but left my heart empty. The dwelling place of my heart held a flashing vacancy sign. My life was full but it wasn’t filled.
Years later I found a Daddy who made His home in me.
When your heart cries for home, make room for Him.
When your spirit registers empty, fill your space with Him.
When your soul longs for love, give your craving to Him.
God may not have given us a perfect father, but He did give us His perfect Son. Why not celebrate Father’s Day by allowing God to build a new addition in your heart? As we expand the walls of His dwelling place, He makes a home improvement.
Joy, courage and peace pervade His presence.
