Fathers, Husbands-You are our security!
Dear Daddy/ Hussy,
You are our PROTECTOR AND PROVIDER.
ø We need you to gather us to a safe place in the family. A safe place not a lecture, a safe place not a sermon.
ø We need a very human dad/husband who simply cares about God and about us. We don’t even want a SPIRITUAL GIANT. We just want you
ø We need a GATHERING TIME with you where it is safe to say to each other, how are you getting along with the Lord? How can we pray today?
ø We need a safe place to cry, laugh, sing, rejoice, challenge and sometimes not to share and have it be okay.
ø We need a time with you that is relaxed- UNSTIFF. When we can pray honestly, in simple sentences, from our hearts, UNFIXED, UNRIGID, UNROUTINE, UNSHACKLED.
ø We need a place where irregular opinions are respected and where God has the last word.
ø We need a GENTLEMAN LEADER not a “GENERAL”, gracious, relaxed, human. A FAMILY SHEPHERD who exhibits not infallible authority but a thirst for God.
ø EVERYDAY? – Not necessarily; OFTEN? – YES.; LONG? – NO; WHERE? – ANYWHERE; HOW? – sense where we’re at and zero in.
ø We may need heavy-duty confessing to each other and to God… silent prayer… exuberant praise (try sing a long tapes)… Bible study. But, not every time.
Thanks for listening DAD/HUSBAND REMEMBER. WE NEED YOU, LOVE YOU & PRAY FOR YOU!
