I know Father’s Day was really celebrated on Sunday 20 June, but as I was reminded, whether you have a father here on earth or not, each of us as Christians have a father who loves and cares for us. Let’s remember He should be celebrated daily.
In church, our sister, Sunmi read a poem she wrote for all men. I couldn’t just leave it there and ask her if we could publish it on our website so you can all read and enjoy it.
Father’s Day Poem
By: Sunmi Ayorinde
God made you, especially for us
To discipline and instruct, just like He does
You guide, protect and train a child in the way he should go
Even without being a dad, you have that special role
You possess a strength that inspires boldness
We can rely on you for prayers to make us fearless
A man, after God’s heart who displays humility
Knowing his wisdom is not by his own ability
Thank you for your heart of compassion and care
The Holy Spirit in you is abundantly clear
Reflecting the heart and mind of our Lord Jesus
To be an example of Him, not simply to please us
Boys, Men and Fathers, we just want to pray
May the presence of the Lord forever guide you on your way
May His hand always be upon you even as we say
We wish you a very Happy Father’s Day.
