A Music Video About the Importance of a Father’s Love for His Daughter(Please note that this is not a posting about my or any other family member’s birthday :-))
This is a very powerful, moving and thematically realistic music video just released by Casting Crowns from their Come to the Well album. It ties into the theme of fatherlessness put forth by movies like Courageous. In my humble opinion, fatherlessness doesn’t just mean the lack of the physical presence of a father, but it could also mean the lack of emotional or spiritual involvement. I also understand that it may not always be the father’s choice. He may want to be involved, but the mother has chosen to shield his children from him at some level for one reason or another. Also, a man may not even be aware that he has biologically fathered a child.
I have come to believe that children, at whatever stage of development, are a blessing from the Lord. Over 40 years ago, facing circumstances similar to those displayed in this video, a woman chose life and gave a little boy up for adoption. Therefore, you are reading these words today. Whatever your situation, please know that God loves you and wants you to love and trust Him.
