What I'm listening to // Great are you Lord by All Sons and Daughters

Well, old blog lovers, welcome to our new spot.

My heart is stirring with a noble theme, to recite verses to my king. -Psalms 45 Sherei's Memory Version

I simply sense that God is longing for people to know and interpret Him as a GOOD father.

  • A good father doesn't hold grudges
  • A good father isn't keeping score
  • A good father has long term vision
  • A good father sees all that could be, and forgets and forgives all that comes short 
  • a good father is vulnerable
  • a good father is kind
  • a good father protects
  • a good father sets boundaries
  • a good father knows how to play
  • a good father knows how to listen
  • a good father knows when to speak
  • a good father gives space
  • a good father is always quickly found
  • a good father doesn't have a hard heart
  • a good father doesn't keep a heavy hand
  • a good father has a good laugh
  • a good father dreams big dreams
  • a good father isn't too busy at work for his family
  • a good father isn't too busy
  • a good father never outgrows quality time
  • a good father is available
  • a good father is resilient
  • a good father is bold in love
  • a good father is creative in pursuing his children
  • a good father is very, very, very patient
  • a good father disciplines
  • a good father doesn't know how to give up
  • a good father doesn't know how to disown
  • a good father isn't embarrassed
  • a good father takes responsibility
  • a good father knows a good adventure
  • a good father is a little bit of a renegade
  • a good father is safe
  • a good father is wild
  • a good father loves fiercely

I think that God wants us to encounter Him, understand Him, embrace Him, receive Him, and follow Him. If we understand his character, then His commands become an effortless and liberating expression of a child, well loved, living out the will of his Father. Let's go back to the drawing board, and figure out what we think of God. Will you go with me? 

When we know God as GOOD there is:

  • no more striving
  • no more comparison
  • no more insecurity
  • no more doubt
  • no more fear
  • more peace
  • more stabililty
  • more energy
  • more security
  • more adventure
  • more willingness
  • more freedom
  • more kindness
  • more gentleness
  • more patience
  • ....more love.
