Dad, a word used commonly throughout our society, yet this very word seems to have so many different meanings. To some, this word embodies love, protection, strength and honor, to others, it brings feelings of neglect, loneliness, hatred and resentment.

Isn’t it amazing how one word can be so powerful?

The very use of the word “Dad” can bring someone joy and leave another devastated.

But, why? Why is this word so powerful?

To be honest I don’t think it’s the actual word that is powerful, but rather the meaning associated with the word.  Dad is the word chosen to represent the male figure in our lives, the one who gave us life. So, in a way the word is irrelevant.  What’s more important is what it represents.

So if you had a father who has never there, or perhaps a father who was around, but never involved in your life, then those are the images that would come to mind whenever you hear the word dad.

But, is that it? Does that mean you have to live your life not knowing the love of a Father?

No, because your real Father is still here and he loves you. I know it might sound strange, but hopefully his video will help you understand

You see, just like Jo, you might not know who your Dad is, but that doesn’t mean you can’t know your Father. Unlike your Father here on earth, God will never leave you, he is always with you. He knows what you are going through and wants to help. All he asks is that we seek a relationship with him.

Just know that you are loved unconditionally by a Father who made you and accepts you. Make a decision to no longer let the absence of your Dad determine your future, but rather trust your Father to give you the life and future you deserve.
