God as you loving Father
« on: July 12, 2018, 11:15:09 PM »
People who have had a bad earthly Father figure often suffer with assurance issues, doubt and anxiety.
A loving Father figure is so so important.
 
 
 
I had these problems still when Jesus (obviously He loves us mega lots too) came into my life and I still have it very slightly now but the issues are disappearing and I have felt so secure and loved so often now.
 
 
 
A book that really helped me:
"Loved Like Never Before, Discovering the Father Heart of God - Ken Symington".

Easy read too.
 
 
 
Brother or Sister, you are a biological son or daughter of your loving heavenly Father God - He just wants to cuddle you and bless you forever in the paradise of His strong arms.

God is not a sugar daddy!

He is Majestic, Awesome, in the sense of terrafiying, Holy and he is Llove.

His Love is not a soppy, emotional love, but the tough, yes you've fallen off your bike. There is no damage done to you, now get back on your bike and carry on learning to ride it.

At the time, that is terrifying, but looking back it was neccesary to learn.

God's love is more amazing than we can understand or imagine and yes he enjoys us, our attempts to serve and be obedient.
He will bless us, c.s. lewes got it right in 'the Horse and his Boy.' When he said that the reward for completing a task for God is to be given another harder task.
army recruits are frighten at the sight of the endurance asuly course, yet trained solders tackle it and take it in their stride.

That is what we have to learn. Some verymixxed pictures but we are not toddles falling into Daddies arms as we toddle.

One of the things that got me through bad times was knowing the
Character of God and thinking "would God want this "

The other sword was knowing myself and what made me tick [on the inside]

These two things were crucial at this time..

One question mark [while going through a bad time might be]

"So why did God allow it to happen - is'nt that almost as bad as doing it ?"

John Bruv, check out the cover of this book:

He can be cuddly - Abba Father with you on His lap.

BUT

But there is also His tougher love also that teaches you to be strong (like you said) - that kind of love is prudent e.g. when you put your hand too close the fire you get a smack but you never burn it again.

I have been there Tes, asked God that question and I guess you know that "joy come in the morning" too.

mmmm - be careful as bad things  happening can create links back to the past.
