This is for all the Spiritual Fathers out there and to all the men who answered the call and gave…
You may never know on this side of eternity the impact you have had and the difference you made, but God knows, and the fatherless children know.
Thank you for standing up and being the face of our Father when there was no father. You have never looked more like Christ than when you loved a child that was not your own, or when you came alongside a young man to mentor him, or gave validation to a young girl’s worth.
When you chose to stand in the gap and love, sacrificing time, life, finances, and sleep…
You became the shield between the fatherless and hell; you led them closer to the Father. You taught a young boy what a man is, you helped a young girl know her worth, you impacted a generation for the Kingdom of God. It may have seemed like such a small thing at the time, but believe me… nothing done for God’s children is small or insignificant.
To all you spiritual fathers who may or may not have had children of your own-
Thank you! God Bless you!
I will not leave you as orphans [comfortless, bereaved, and helpless]; I will come [back] to you. -John 14:18
“I will establish My covenant (everlasting promise) between Me and you,
And I will multiply you exceedingly [through your descendants].” – Genesis 17:2
