Everyday Promises – 109

Compassion on his children

As a father has compassion on his children, so the Lord has compassion on those who fear him; Psalm 103:13 NIV

Jan was a bubbly, funloving, daredevil kind of girl. She began attending our church as a teenager. We fell into an easy friendship and I often went to her home for meals and we hung out together. The one thing I could not understand about Jan was her total lack of appreciation for her adoptive parents. Her father and mother were so nice to her. They treated her with kindness and respect. In fact, I would have traded my step father in for her dad any day. He really loved Jan. He would take her out, drive her anywhere and help her. He provided for her, and enjoyed her company. Yet Jan never valued that care. She ended up running off to Darwin, living with a truckie and tragically died in a road-train accident. The tears ran down that father’s face as he told me about her passing. Your Father God loves you with a deep and abiding love. He yearns to hear your voice, to provide for your needs and have your company. He misses you when you don’t show up to talk. He longs to walk beside you through life. Don’t spurn his care…
