A Letter from Heaven ~For All Fathers

fathers-dayMy sons of whom I love dearly; you are the foundation of the family, and I have assigned to you a specific challenge to accomplish in this modern-day world. Your position will be challenged not so much by your own children, but by the very societal structure of this disoriented day.   With the structural breakdown of traditional families and roles so clearly undefined, it has left a door open for displacement to set in.  Your challenge will be a difficult one, but I have extended to you an extraordinary grace for this season of uncertainty.

I, your Lord God have placed inside you an exceptional heart of courage and strength. I have given you the wisdom and discernment to stand as loving fathers, even if the world calls it unfashionable.  I made you in my image to be a reflection of my heart, and my heart is love for all mankind. 

 Through our love we can conquer the deception of the spirit of this age and restore the position of the patriarch to the headship of the family.  I designed your role to be a shield for your family; you are their protector.   Your eyes are to watch over them and guide them along the path.   Your words should always be spoken with the truth; as a Shepherd.  The actions of your life will be expressed in your children, so remember to act accordingly.  I gave you arms to wrap them in love and to be an extension of my benevolent hand.  Your mind is as one with your Heavenly Father, renewed by the Spirit of my Adoring Son.  Impart into them my Kingdom Knowledge and they shall not fall by the  wayside.

 Govern with Compassionate Authority and direct them toward their eternal destiny.   Time is valuable and your wisest investment is your children, they are your legacy; both your natural and your Spiritual children.  Fathers of today are a blessing to a misguided generation, in a world needing  restoration.

 What the world sees as an archaic role is a rebellion against the Fatherly position.  Their rebellion is against your Heavenly Father and they are in need of a Father’s love the most.   I am your Lord thy God, I am the same as I was when I raised up Abraham, Isaac and Jacob.                                                                                Fathers; you are my sons whom I have created to be respected, and honoured. My Spirit dwells in the heart of the patriarchs; even in this modern-day.

       ”Happy Father’s day”                                                                             ~Love Your Father in Heaven ♥ 

Written by Cindy Livingstone; inspired by the Holy Spirit for all of God’s Fathers,  both in the Natural and Spiritual….. Thank you for surrendering your hearts. Much Love to you on your Special Day.

Lyrics and Music: Ben­ja­min M. Ram­sey

Teach me Thy way, O Lord, teach me Thy way!
Thy guiding grace afford, teach me Thy way!
Help me to walk aright, more by faith, less by sight;
Lead me with heav’nly light, teach me Thy way! 31586_313519928763606_339351396_n

When I am sad at heart, teach me Thy way!
When earthly joys depart, teach me Thy way!
In hours of loneliness, in times of dire distress,
In failure or success, teach me Thy way!2044_313438445438421_1417894688_n

When doubts and fears arise, teach me Thy way!
When storms o’erspread the skies, teach me Thy way!
Shine through the cloud and rain, through sorrow, toil and pain;
Make Thou my pathway plain, teach me Thy way!

Long as my life shall last, teach me Thy way!
Where’er my lot be cast, teach me Thy way!
Until the race is run, until the journey’s done,
Until the crown is won, teach me Thy way!los-ninos-josc3a9-juan-y-gloria-de-la-barcenas-y-tomas-salvany

HOPE FOR YOUR PRODIGAL
[ PART 4 WITH BARBARA JULIANI ]

Christians have read the parable of the prodigal son for centuries. Many can relate to the younger son. Some can relate to the older brother. But how can we identify with the father in this parable?

HOPE FOR YOUR PRODIGAL

Are you able to relate to the story of the prodigal son? If not, maybe you are more like the older brother who did not recognize his own sin. No matter who you are, we all need the Father’s grace.

THE INDESCRIBABLE GIVER

Seeking the greatest blessing

“For God so loved the world, that He gave His only
begotten Son,that whosoever believeth in Him
should not perish,but have everlastinglife.” (Jn. 3:16)
We all know the joy a gift can bring. Children sometimes make gift lists (one of our sons once helpfully divided his list into “reasonable” and “unreasonable”) in the hopes of things to come. As we grow, our idea of the perfect gift grows with us.
At some point, however, we discover a joy greater than receiving. As the Lord Himself said:“It is more blessed to give than to receive.” (Acts 20:35b) At first glance, this seems counter-intuitive.Surely receiving is to be preferred! Yet, we see the truth of the Lord’s words everywhere we look.

There are those who come into a local church with the singular desire to receive. They avoid any kind of regular commitment or service. They choose only those meetings or events which suit them. One might think—on a natural level—that they would be the happiest people in the assembly since they constantly receive and never have to give. But quite the opposite is true. They are usually among the first (and most frequent) to criticize, complain,and take offense.

If you want to find those who truly enjoy the assembly, you’ll have to look somewhere else: to those who give.
What about in the family? Again, our age has no shortage of spouses whose primary goal in marriage is to be on the receiving end. Sacrifice for their wife or husband isn’t high on their priority list. They can (and do!) list the ways their spouse should change in order to accommodate them. Requests, demands, hints, bargains, strategies—all designed to get their own way. And yet, no matter how much they “get,” few people are more miserable.

Furthermore, the child who gets everything he wants; the child who has discovered that he can bend his parents (or his friends) to his will, provided he makes a big enough fuss—is he a happy child? Is he a blessed child? There’s a reason we call such children “spoiled.” Unless this spirit of receiving is quenched when he is young, he is in for a bleak, lonely, frustrating life.

No, the Lord Jesus was, as always, perfectly right when He told us that giving was the path to blessing and happiness. We understand this as soon as we love someone. Don’t get me wrong—I’m deeply grateful for the various works of fine art that my children have made for me over the years—treasures that will never grace the Louvre. But my real joy is to give to them. Not necessarily in the terms of the possessions that our society is obsessed with. There are far more important gifts to give. But seeing their faces light up is a far greater present than anything that comes in wrapping paper. It truly is more blessed to give than to receive.
But is even giving the greatest good? Let us take one step higher.

Above gifts, beyond giving, there is the great, incomparable Giver. “Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither
shadow of turning.” (Jas. 1:17)
Nobody has ever given like He has. Think of the recipients of His gift: we give to those we love; He gave to His enemies. Or the extent of His giving: His giving never ends—He showers us with “grace upon grace” (Jn. 1:16). But eclipsing all, there is the cost of His gift—a gift that outweighs heaven and earth: His only begotten Son. A gift to fill our hearts with joy and blessing for all eternity.
“Thanks be to God for His indescribable gift!” (2 Cor। 9:15)
