We Are Our Fathers Children
In church last Sunday a young women got up and bore her testimony. As part of her testimony she told a touching story her relationship with God. She grew up without a Father. Her mother was very young when she was born and quite unprepared for the challenge of parenthood. One night while her mother was in distress she said a prayer over her. She said something like this, "God, if you are there, my child has no father she will need you to fill this role for her. Will you please look after my daughter."
As she grew up she felt like Heavenly Father was always there for her. She said that she had a close relationship with Him because of her situation. When the missionaries told her that God was her Father she had known it all her life. She got baptized and has been a faithful member for all her life.
This story really hit home. We have a Father who watches over us all the time. We have a Father who we can talk to whenever we are in need. That Father is God. We are His children. What a sweet message. I hope we all recognize our divine potential as an heir to all He has. This life is a lot easier the sooner we understand this relationship.
God lives. He sent His Son Jesus Christ to die for us. He is our Father. He loves us and will never lead us astray. Visit mormon.org to find out more about the Plan our Heavenly Father has for us.
