First Time Father

Deuteronomy 30:20a: “Love the Lord your God, listen to his voice, and hold fast to Him…” 

 

A miracle has taken place in our family. At age forty-four, my son will become a father for the first time.

He will soon experience what it means to have another life dependent upon him for his physical, emotional, and spiritual growth.

There will be joyous days ahead for my son’s little family, but in all reality, there will also be some challenging ones, as well.

He will learn to depend on his Heavenly Father for guidance, while gaining a new appreciation for the many truths in scripture that apply to a father’s role in the life of a child.

There will be times when he will feel overwhelmed in the day-to-day responsibilities and doubt his adequacy as a parent. In those times, I pray he will experience God’s tender mercies and His faithfulness.

Just like so many fathers before him.
