A few years ago I surrendered him to You. I had nothing left and whispered some painful words born of my stubborn defeated heart.
I can’t do this alone anymore. I can’t. I won’t.
The boy needs a father. And Your wake up call that he already has one is something I will never let go.
Be his Father.
Teach him what only You can.
Give me wisdom and aid while we learn life together.
Parent him with me.
I’m begging you.
Hold his hand.
Show him Your truth.
Grow him to be a man after Your own heart.
Lord, be his Father.
I couldn’t give him what our hearts so desperately wanted but I could give him You and in the end, Your grace is always sufficient. You are all he needs and craves.
Who better to teach him grace and love?
Who better to show forgiveness and mercy?
Who better to whisper in the darkest shadows that You are there and You will never leave him or forsake him.
You are a good good Father.
It’s who you are.
