Like the pieces of a puzzle, our lives seem to be and
How each one touches another is such a mystery.
Without a piece, what do we say
But that the puzzle is missing a piece or incomplete.
Lord, please help me
I’m hurting today in the loss of my dad.
I am lost, lonely and empty inside.
I cry out, Father, help me
For the immense pain is weighing so heavy on my heart.
He lovingly brushes my hair back whispering
My child, I have Your dad in my arms
For you see, my puzzle was missing a piece
You will see him again one day
When I bring another ‘piece’ home.
Where there will be joy evermore.
Until that day hold on, my child, to my unwavering hand.
For I long for the day when all of My pieces have come home.
It will be then that the most beautiful puzzle will be

Please pray with me.
We love and exalt You. Thanks so much for always being there for Your children. No matter what we face, You are there holding our hand. Thank You for helping me rewrite the poem that I had written when my dad passed away twenty-two years ago. I couldn’t remember the exact words that I had written previously, but I am thankful for Your help in writing them again now. It is good to revisit the memories. I remember the time after he passed and I was so broken for months afterwards. I remember how I cried out to You every day of those months with such agony. I also remember You revealing to me the smallest size of Your glory when I was broken and sobbing in deep prayer. The image was so small. What You showed me was like the size of a tenth of a piece of tissue. Oh, how Your glory shone so brightly. Immediately I was filled with intense joy. All of the pain went away and I rejoiced knowing that my dad was in Your presence. He is no longer apart from You. My dad is beholding ALL of Your glory. That is so wonderful to me. Thank You, Lord, for Your gentle lovingkindness and the mercy that You had showed me on that day. Thank You for revealing Yourself to Your children in so many mighty and magnificent ways. You are awesome. May this experience encourage my brothers and sisters who have lost loved ones. I love You so much and pray always in Jesus’ name. Amen.
I had approximately 17 years that included my dad. He was in a terrible accident when I was a child that left him as a shell of the man that he had been. It took him several years to recuperate. He was never fully the same after the accident. But I never got to see him again after the accident until I was in my teen years. He and mom had divorced and I was put in foster care at the age of twelve, I believe. So from around age 5 until I was a teenager, maybe 15 or 16, I never saw him. We did get close again after I became an adult and he was involved in our lives until he passed away when I was 33. I miss and love my dad. It is such a great consolation knowing that I will see him again one day. My question for you today is, do you know my Jesus? Have you asked Him to come into your heart and to save you from your sins? He is the Only way to Heaven and even now He is calling to you.
If you do not know Jesus but would like to know more about Him, including how you can be saved, please read the following blog titled, You Never Let Us Go. God bless. https://thefathersfeet.wordpress.com/2020/01/07/you-never-let-us-go/
I confess that Jesus is Lord (Philippians 2:11)! We are not to believe every spirit, but to try them to see if they are from God. For there are many false prophets. The Bible says this is how we will know: Every spirit that does not confess Jesus is not from God. And is the spirit of the antichrist (1 John 4:1-3).
