During our chapel prayer time we read Psalm 86. A resident requested prayer for her granddaughter who is battling with cancer. The Holy Spirit lead the conversation to the comparison between our earthly father’s love to our Heavenly Father’s love.
Not all people have good memories of their fathers growing up, as was the case this morning. I was summoned to the room of a dear lady. She said God opened her eyes to some feelings that she had not dealt with regarding her father. He always gave his attentions to her sister, so she grew up in second place and never felt good enough in his eyes. We chatted and she unloaded other burdens that she has carried from her childhood as well. This was a time of cleansing and letting go of the past for her. She now claims the title of princess, as she is the daughter of the King of Kings!
