Water

This longing inside I just can’t hide
I hunger and thirst for your love deep inside
Let’s smile and laugh until the sun goes down
Let’s play, pick me up daddy please

I dive in your mercy
I jump in your grace
I’m splashing around till I see
The water on your face
Water that flows
Water that races
Water that fills
every empty place

Pick me up, put me up on Your shoulders
Daddy God I need You to hold me closer
Take me in Your arms, spin me around
Let’s play and never let me go

I dive in your mercy
I jump in your grace
I’m splashing around till I see
The water on your face
Water that flows
Water that races
Water that fills
every empty place

“Yet hear now, O Jacob My servant,
And Israel whom I have chosen.
Thus says the Lord who made you
And formed you from the womb, who will help you:
‘Fear not, O Jacob My servant;
And you, Jeshurun, whom I have chosen.
For I will pour water on him who is thirsty,
And floods on the dry ground;
I will pour My Spirit on your descendants,
And My blessing on your offspring;
They will spring up among the grass
Like willows by the watercourses.’
One will say, ‘I am the Lord’s’;
Another will call himself by the name of Jacob;
Another will write with his hand, ‘The Lord’s,’
And name himself by the name of Israel.” (Isaiah 44:1-4 NKJV

Father’s Day Forgiveness

Fathers Day Forgiveness

Daddy can I say
We haven’t always
Seen eye to eye
Yet I understand
Your reasons why

Despite the things
that came our way
I want to say
I love you and
Forgive you
Anyway

You did the best
You could with what
You had and I
Honor you on
This special day

Daddy I forgive
You for everything
And I pray you
forgive me too-
Happy Father’s Day!

Put Your Hand in The Hand

Yesterday Pastor Jeff Hanson of JAM, shared a story that just “got” me!

Imagine a little girl holding her daddy’s hand…

From: http://preciousfamilyforever.blogspot.com/2013_03_01_archive.html
Here is a short story with a beautiful message…

Little girl and her father were crossing a bridge.
The father was kind of scared so he asked his little daughter,
‘Sweetheart, please hold my hand so that you don’t fall into the river.’
The little girl said, ‘No, Dad. You hold my hand.’
‘What’s the difference?’ Asked the puzzled father.
‘There’s a big difference,’ replied the little girl.

‘If I hold your hand and something happens to me,
chances are that I may let your hand go.
But if you hold my hand, I know for sure that no matter what happens,
you will never let my hand go.

I KNOW FOR SURE THAT NO MATTER WHAT HAPPENS –

YOU WILL NEVER LET MY HAND GO!

This hit me right away.  All that trying to please daddy, trying to be a good kid and get it right, and hold on tight and not let go.  But it’s not about that…I could even LET GO AND LET GOD.  He’s got it – He’s holding onto me – and His grip is stronger than mine.  Thank you Daddy God that you hold onto me no matter what!
