I have seen many titles behind a name. In fact, one could probably make a post for each day of the A to Z challenge for the letters that can be placed after one's name (maybe not, but you get the idea). Some people almost need another business card just for their "letters".
Of all the titles that I could possibly have at the end of my name, the one that brings me the greatest joy is Daddy. I love being a daddy. There is nothing like looking into your child's eyes when they come running to the safest place they know - Daddy's arms!
That is the feeling I have when I think about the Lord. Love. Security. Safety. Joy. That is why I pray each day that the Lord is pleased to make me more like Christ. I want my children to know that Daddy walks with Jesus, that his arms are the safest place in the world.
Recently, my eldest daughter said to me after family worship, "Daddy, I love Jesus more than I love you...but...you'll always be my daddy." That was a good day. I love being a daddy. It takes a real man to be a good daddy because our kids need dads.
How are you doing at being at daddy?
Love in the Truth.
