As I prayed one morning, my heart went out to all those who have been hurt by the actions of parents and then I heard this song by Jason Upton as I thought of this poem… “Father to the Fatherless”.
Many are so broken,
from the failures of a parent…
but abusive mothers or fathers,
are not always apparent.
Abandonment also happens,
with wounds real and deep.
And these wounds hurt,
causing many to weep.
Many decisions for our futures,
are based on wounds of our past.
Whether accepting more abuses,
or seeking “love” too fast.
For children learn by example,
and will replicate what they see.
But so many are “fatherless”,
and good parenting is a key.
For God gives us children,
to raise as He has spoken.
And He’s Father to the fatherless…
for all those who are broken.
Psalm 68:5… “Father to the fatherless, defender of widows–this is God, whose dwelling is holy.”
Dear Lord, we know that You are close to the brokenhearted and bind up their wounds. You love the broken and have collected all of their tears. You see the anguish that so many suffer from and the loneliness that plague many with issues of abandonment. Fill them with Your Presence. Heal them and deliver them from the traumas of their past. Let them sense Your Hugs and Love so they will know that they are never alone. Let the fatherless and the widows walk in Divine favor with You… in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
