Sorry Lori, I accidentally deleted your post that I'm trying to reply to. I don't even know how I managed to do that. I guess I need more coffee.

My father was an evil man. My stepfather was evil too.  I think that's why I reached out to God so strongly as my Father. He is the only real Father I've ever had. The only one who loved me, comforted me, protected me, and communicated with me in his own way. He knew what I needed. He made me feel so loved. And I loved him as I still do. I just can't say enough good things about him.
My dad beat my mom and I saw and heard every time. I can't stand people yelling and screaming and cussing because of those very early years. He was a bad example throughout my life and he is still very selfish today. My mom has been a blessing and a saint to so many people and she taught me love. In reality, we are alone in this world except for the love of God. Although having a spouse is not being alone but you know what I mean. When we're on our deathbeds only God can comfort us.

amen...I am so glad you have a wonderful mother.  I remember watching my father knock my mother off her feet.  But my mother responded by taking out things on me, so I am so thankful that you have a mother who loves and I've said it before and I'll say it again...give her a hug and thank you for me.

that is awesome...well not about the coffee....lol

I wish I could see God as a good Father and as I said, I am slowly learning to but it has been a long and hard journey to feel loved at all in any relationship.  I grew up with no one that showed love....I had some grandparents that loved me but long story short they seldom showed it.  I grew up not only being told I was unworthy of love but wondering what I did that was so terrible as a young child that I wasn't even worthy of a parent, sibling, or grandparents love.  I still battle this sometimes and it shows in my relationship with Christ for I would serve Him to the day I die if only to hear Him say "well done"...even if He sent me to hell.  I know He won't but the point is that I don't think much about what He gives me, only what I can give Him.  This is a remnant of what I was taught about not being worthy of love if that makes sense.

Love in the original sense involves the expression of wisdom. What is called love in the modern world is often just a natural emotional response to people's sexuality.

I have taken to capitalizing Love when referring to Biblical, agape Love and leaving it small letter love when talking about the world version of love.

Sorry Lori, I accidentally deleted your post that I'm trying to reply to. I don't even know how I managed to do that. I guess I need more coffee.

My father was an evil man. My stepfather was evil too.  I think that's why I reached out to God so strongly as my Father. He is the only real Father I've ever had. The only one who loved me, comforted me, protected me, and communicated with me in his own way. He knew what I needed. He made me feel so loved. And I loved him as I still do.

What tragedies some of you have had being brought up with pain.  Awful parents who should never even behave that way, especially around their children.  It's a miracle that you all turned out as well as you have.

I had everything growing up, except a father who had to work overtime too much, so that he could feed his family.  But his absence caused me to long for a father who would teach me sports, and be a less distant father.  God fulfills the needs that I have instead.

But, I had a loving family and learned about God early.  My mom told my dad that us children had to be raised as Christians, or she would not marry him.  So, even though my dad was Lebanese and my mom had quite an ancestry, we children were brought up with Christian names and church.  I was supposed to be named Mohammed, but my mom said, it has to be Michael, instead.  Also, my dad never hit my mom, ever.  But he spanked us too much with a thick leather 'razor strap.'  It didn't help out my relationship with him.

I also wanted a brother very much, because I had 3 sisters to play with.  It was a real bummer sometimes.  But, every one of us had a pretty good life together.  This is getting long.  Ciao, for now.

I believe in the Lord God and how He wanted us to live.  I worship Him and love Him exceedingly much.  I also believe in Jesus Christ and His commandments, and in the example He gave us on how to live our lives.  With them both, and I love and adore Him as my Savior, Master and best Brother & King.  My love is strong and encompassing.

I don't know. It's always been easy for me to see God as a good, loving Father. That really saved me during a lot of abuse. I felt like no one loved me except for God.
Eph. 6:12 Because your fight has not been with flesh and blood, but with Principalities and The Rulers and The Powers of this dark world and with wicked spirits which are under Heaven.
1Tim. 4:1 Now the Spirit expressly states that in later times some will abandon the faith to follow deceitful spirits and the teachings of demons, 2 influenced by the hypocrisy of liars, whose consciences are seared with a hot iron.
2Tim. 3:1But understand this: In the last days terrible times will come. 2 For men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boastful, arrogant, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, 3 unloving, unforgiving, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, without love of good, 4 traitorous, reckless, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, 5having a form of godliness but denying its power. Turn away from such as these!

My stepfather was like that. My mother lost several babies because he beat her so badly during pregnancy. Then she chose to stay with him when given a choice to leave him or lose us to foster care. That was hard for me to accept.

Hey All, I just finally got to check this out again and it is very extremely inspirational for a soul to be blessed with these blissful words.  I hope that everyone at this Forum will check this out.  Is there any way, PJ, that you can tell others to check out.  The video about God being your Father is sensational and filled with wisdom.  It can pick anyone up, it seems.  How do we advertise this on FEF here, and TF there??  I don't know how to do it.  Maybe pj or Lori would know how to do it and even find the time.  God's Wonder Be Exalted Through You!!

I was referring to Replies No. 29 & 30 above.  What you, pj, and Lori, posted.  I'm sorry it's taken me so long to post, but I am finally squeezing in some time to check out FEF lately.  I haven't eaten dinner yet, but I'll do that soon.

I finally see the post/reply nos. now.  Yippee!!  Going to eat now.  PJ, I will need your help tomorrow w/ the videos tomorrow.

Much Love To You Both!!
