Daddy’s Girl

Daddy’s Girl

She knows her daddy

She knows He would never hurt her

She knows that He would give His life for her

He already did

She has gone through a lot

Wandered in dry places

She was and always is daddy’s girl

He waited for her

He cried with her when she got hurt

He waited patiently for her to come to Him

Oh how He longed to comfort her!

But she never came; she struggled on her own and tried to be “strong”

Tried to “figure it out” on her own

“Lean not on your own understanding!” He tried to tell her

She was too hurt, too bruised maybe also too stubborn to hear His gentle voice

Poor girl but she was still His girl

Daddy’s girl

Then He saw her coming back home

Tears streaming down her cheeks

All those lost years

There were tears running down His cheek too

She is here!

I love her! My girl

She ran into His hands

All those years when everything seemed to go wrong

She was still His girl

Daddy’s girl

1 John 3:3 (NASB)

See how great a love the Father has bestowed on us, that we would be called children of God; and such we are. For this reason the world does not know us, because it did not know Him. Beloved, now we are children of God, and it has not appeared as yet what we will be. We know that when He appears, we will be like Him, because we will see Him just as He is. And everyone who has this hope fixed on Him purifies himself, just as He is pure.
