How great is the love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God! And that is what we are. 1 John 3:1 

Thoughts of childhood are stored where they can easily be found. We pull them from our hearts and think about precious moments we will never forget. Memories surface quickly, when we remember our dads. As the years go by, we recognize why they are so treasured. 

My father is an incredible man of faith. He often reminds me and my sisters how much we are loved. I had the privilege of spending Father’s Day with him several years ago. Distance won’t allow us to see one another this year, but I will be grateful to hear his familiar voice when I call. And, I will thank God for the years we had to celebrate this day. 

Many will not be able to hear the sound of a father’s tender voice. I pray for them this morning and consider God knows how much they are missed. He sees inside the heart of those who rely on memories to sustain and comforts them in care. He provides peace for those who mourn and arms them with the love of His faithfulness. 

God prepares us to honor our dads and consider the impact they’ve had in our lives. And, when we cannot be together; He guides our thoughts, so the memories will remind us how very much we are loved. 

The Bible says, “May our Lord Jesus Christ himself and God our Father, who loved us and by his grace gave us eternal encouragement and good hope, encourage your hearts and strengthen you in every good deed and word. “ Thessalonians 2:16 

God knows how it feels to love. Our heavenly Father longs for us to know Him as Lord of our lives. He takes good care of His children. He blesses us in moments to feel the presence of His peace and guides us where we learn to treasure the blessing of a grateful heart.

Dear God, Thank you for this day to celebrate our fathers. We honor them with love and remember those who are no longer with us. Thank you for the precious memories which remind us of moments we will never forget. Help us embrace a grateful heart, as we remember those who have had a tremendous impact on our lives. 

Happy Father’s Day! God is near and He loves YOU,
