My dad has always been one of my most favorite people in my life. He’s always been there for me and has always been my superhero. He’s always been there to balance out what my mom says and when my mom and I fight. He’s just always been there when I needed him most.
Well a few months I was a bit emotional and going through some stuff within me and we had one of our conversations where I ask a seemingly simple question or make a short comment and it turns into a really deep conversation.
This is probably the best conversation that I have ever had with my dad.
I’ve always loved these conversations because he always takes the time to explain things to me in a way that I can understand; unlike my mom, who can easily get frustrated when she explains something in her own way and can’t understand why I don’t understand it that way as well.
Today’s conversation was no exception to that. We started off talking about a college switch and it went all the way to God’s plans for us and the purpose He put us on this earth and the dreams he plants in our hearts.
I’ve always known that my dad had a strong belief and faith in God, but I never truly understood how deep it went until we had this conversation.
My dad opened up to me and told me the dream that God put in his heart.
And I have never been more proud or in awe of my father before.
Here is a man that loves the Lord so much that his soul and spirit are set on doing what the Lord put him on this earth to do. And he wasn’t afraid to tell me about it or to be open and show how much his dream means to him emotionally; and I’ve almost never seen my father emotional like that before.
It put a whole new breath of life into me and so much inspiration to look and seek for the reason the Lord put me on this earth. And that is something that I am amazingly grateful for.
I am so thankful and grateful to the Lord that He blessed me with the amazing man who is my father. And I love him so much and I am so proud of the man he is today, of the man he has become through Christ.
Christ truly lives in him and the love of Christ shines through my dad in such an amazing way.
I want my husband to have faith in the Lord like my father does and I will not settle for a man who is less in his qualities than my father.
He brought me up to want the best that the Lord has for us and that’s the way I’m going to live.
Thank you daddy for being an amazing man of God and raising me the way you have. I only hope to raise my kids with the same faith and love for the Lord as you have raised me with. I love you so much daddy.
