FATHER GOD, IT IS YOU

FATHER GOD IT IS YOU

FATHER I HAD DREAMS LONG AGO THAT I’VE FORGOTTEN

AS A CHILD I SAW CASTLES IN THE CLOUDS SO HIGH

OH BUT LIFE KEEPS MOVING ON SO VERY QUICKLY

AND NOW THOSE CLOUDS ARE JUST CLOUDS IN THE SKY

BUT YOU ARE THE ONE I CAN RUN TO

WHEN TROUBLES BOW MY HEAD

AND THEY BREAK ME THROUGH

FATHER GOD, MY SAVIOUR, IT IS YOU

FATHER I DON’T MEAN TO SOUND UNGRATEFUL

YOU POURED LAUGHTER AND JOY INTO THIS LIFE OF MINE

BUT THERE IS ALWAYS ONE MORE RAGING RIVER LEFT TO CROSS LORD

DON’T YOU KNOW THAT THOSE WAVES SOMETIMES ARE FAR TOO HIGH

BUT YOU ARE THE ONE I CAN RUN TO

WHEN TROUBLES BOW MY HEAD

AND THEY BREAK ME, THEY BREAK ME THROUGH

FATHER GOD, MY SAVIOUR, IT IS YOU

FATHER LET ME BE A LIGHT IN THIS GROWING DARKNESS

AND WHEN I FALL HELP ME TAKE YOUR HAND, AND GUIDE ME THROUGH

I WANNA, I WANT TO BE AN EMPTY VESSEL THAT YOU MIGHT USE ME

PLEASE FILL ME WITH YOUR LOVE SHOW ME WHAT TO DO

FOR YOU ARE THE ONE I CAN RUN TO

WHEN TROUBLES BOW MY HEAD

AND YOU KNOW THEY MAY BREAK ME THROUGH

BUT FATHER GOD, MY SAVIOUR, IT IS YOU

FOR YOU, YES YOU ARE THE ONE I CAN RUN TO

WHEN TROUBLES BOW MY HEAD

AND THEY BREAK ME THROUGH

FATHER, OH FATHER GOD, IT IS YOU

Lk 11:1 One day Jesus was praying in a certain place. When he finished, one of his disciples said to him, “Lord, teach us to pray, just as John taught his disciples.”

Not teach us howto pray but teach us to wantto pray.

Lk 11:2

He said to them, “When you pray, say:Father

Anthropomorphism- God portrays himself as a human Father, not a stranger; not a higher power; not a tyrannical king.

If you view God as a stranger, you would only pray to him when you were in deep trouble.

If you view God as a higher power, you would only seek God for power, answers to your prayers.

If you view God as a tyrannical king who punishes all wrong doing, you will try to avoid him whenever you have let him down.

If you view God as a loving Father, then you will want to talk to Him constantly.

Lk 11:11

11 “Which of you fathers, if your son asks for a fish, will give him a snake instead?12 Or if he asks for an egg, will give him a scorpion? 

Use your human experiences as a father to understand God. Even though, we are evil, we give our children good things, so wouldn’t the perfect, good, heavenly Father do even more for His children?
