Inspire a Fire. June 4, 2012.
For me, Father’s Day has always been a reminder of what I never had. I lost my father to a car accident when I was a baby. Before I ever knew him. Before I really ever had him.
His absence led me to study other people’s Daddies. I watched them from a distance, taking note of all the traits I needed in a father.
And that is where God met me. In the midst of my little girl questions, He assured me that He would keep the promise made in Psalm 68:5 — “God is father to the fatherless.”
