Who is God the Father – 4

God the Father Paternally consoles us when we are sad, He gives us His Peace when we are fearful, He restores hope and Light in our souls when everything around us is relentlessly falling to pieces and we are about to despair. He opens doors for us that we would never consider, let alone open, by ourselves. He gives us His Love Infinitely when we do not deserve an ounce of it, and He repeatedly forgives us no matter how much we have and keep on wounding Him – as long as we sincerely repent. He actively participates in our lives, literally divinizing them, when we allow Him to by opening our hearts to Him; He provides us with warmth and shelter even though we generally have not earned it. He puts food on our tables even though we like ruining everything that He creates, He clothes and protects us in every way, keeping us safe and healthy, even though we are severely wasteful and rebellious. He brings us gently back into His Divine Heart each and every time that we stray into dangerous territory, ensuring that we are not lost both in this life and the next. That is Who Our Father truly Is in daily life: that is the Eternal God of Providence, Mercy, and Love that is Life.
