Love from Papa – Love Letters that Changed My Life

Listening to Papa’s voice is the greatest joy of my life, and it’s something we’re all designed to do. Learning to walk with His hand in mine has healed my orphan’s heart. It’s not that I don’t have a really good family – I do. But there is nothing and no one that can create in me such a sense of wonder and joy as living in intimacy with Papa God.

The last two decades of my life have been traumatic, and sometimes I’ve dropped by hand from His, but He’s never let me go. He is faithful even when I am not. I believe the source of all unhappiness is our disconnection from our Creator, and usually fear and shame are at the root of orphan’s heart. Father God is relentlessly kind and gentle and it’s Love that has rooted me to His Goodness, even in the worst of times … and traumas that nearly killed me.

I’d love to hear your stories of learning to walk hand-in-hand with Papa God… there’s a comment box at the bottom where you can share – I love to hear what you are thinking and feeling!

In the meantime, my goal is to share a little bit of Love from Papa every day for a month… and beyond…. Thanks for coming by!

  "Who Do You Say I Am?" By: White Dove "You become who you behold," God once whispered into my heart. My gaze so often was focused on negative circumstances, opposition, and oppression in my life.

“Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside in a cloud of smoke, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming, ‘WOW WHAT A RIDE!’” ~ Hunter S Thompson If you are familiar with my […]
