The pain lingers well into our adult lives. There is a void in our soul that only the love of a father can fill. And because of His great compassion for His children, God opens His arms to us and offers to fill that void.
Look at these words from Psalm 27: “Even if my father and mother abandon me, the LORD will hold me close.” (v. 10, NLT)
God is a Father who will never walk out on His kids. He will never disengage from us. It is against His nature to leave us. We will always have His full attention because we are forever in His embrace. There is no better place to be.
