“My Relationship With Poppa” By Kirk Hunt
And Jesus increased in wisdom and stature, and in favor with God and men.
Luke 2:52 NKJV
The day I was born, I was in relationship with Poppa. At first, I spent most of my time with Momma, but over the years my time and intensity with Poppa grew. Sometimes, Poppa and I had relationship, despite my protests. Through it all, my love, respect and honor for my earthly father has only grown over the years.
Poppa has gone to God, but his voice and teachings continue to resonate within me. My feeling about what or how he said things can be complicated. My relationship with him remains simple.
The day you were born, you had a relationship with Father-God. At first, you spent most of your time with parents and other leaders. I am sure you have felt the desire for a deeper relationship with Father-God, even if you did not understand at first. God’s heart has called to you from the beginning and will seek you out until the end.
Your relationship with a parent or other leader may have complicated your relationship with God. Still, Father-God wants a close, personal and intense relationship with you. He always has. He always will.
Still, I pray that you will look past even a good earthly father to our eternal God. Father-God loved you then, loves you now and will love you tomorrow. No matter how complicated your feeling for God, your relationship with Him remains simple.
Think: Father-God loves me.
Pray: “Lord, help me to draw closer to You.”
