Excerpt from “Who’s Your Daddy?” by Priscilla Shirer
(Thanks to my friend Tammie for being an instrument of the Lord and sharing this with me right when I needed it. I needed to be told that HE had not forsaken me, did not mislead me, and that HE will never forget me!)
“I follow Him because He’s the Wisdom of the wise, the Power of the powerful,
the Ancient of days, the Ruler of rulers, the Leader of all leaders.
His goal is a relationship with me.
He’ll never leave you, never forsake you, never mislead you, never forget you, never overlook you, and never cancel your appointment in His appointment book.
When you fall He’ll lift you up. When you fail He’ll forgive you. When you’re weak He’s strong, when you’re lost He’s your way, when you’re afraid He’s your courage, when you stumble He will steady you, when you’re hurt He’s going to heal you. When you’re broken He will mend you. When you’re blind He will lead you. When you’re hungry He will feed you. When you face trials He’s with you.
When I face persecution He shields me. When I face problems He will comfort me. When I face loss He will provide for me. And when we face death He will carry us all home to meet Him.
He is everything, for everybody, everywhere, every time and in every way.
He is your God and that, [Joanna}, is who you belong to.
