My dad for many years did not work. That was the main reason my mum divorced him. Although he found time to be a Scout Leader of the local Boy Scouts. He enjoyed that.
On occasion he had to baby sit me on Saturday's and would have to take me with him if his troop had plans for that day while my mum worked.
I remember one particular Saturday morning where the Boy Scouts made a make-shift high swing in the air and used me as bait to see if it would hold and work. I was about seven. I remember being oh so very high in the air and scared. Why my dad felt led to use me, I do not know.
Regardless, cherishing any time with my dad was priceless. Even if I was in competition with twenty other boys for his attention.
So, as much as I did not like the idea of being hoisted up very high to see if the swing the boys made held or not, which it did, I did not want to disappoint my dad.
As I continue to emotionally heal from my past wounds, I know that I do not have to worry about disappointing my Heavenly Daddy. Nor fight for His attention. His eye is on me alone. As His eye is on you alone. God has more than enough love and tender mercy for each of us individually to be satisfied. No competition. WoW. That is an awesome thought.
and has now come when the true worshipers will worship
the Father in spirit and truth, for they are the
kind of worshipers the Father seeks." - John 4:23
My Heavenly Daddy is healing
me from the inside out.
Transparency is Real.
Many times painful.
Daddy let me be secure in You only!
