If there is no father in your life, whatever the cause—perhaps death or abandonment—a Holy God wants to fill that void. And He equally desires to comfort and protect the widow who has lost her mate.
What I’ve chosen to share with you today in my blog is a brief but powerful promise from the Old Testament of the Holy Bible. It is found in Psalm 68:5. May its message speak to you in your ‘heart language’ if that happens to be English, French, Spanish, or German. However, my prayer is that God’s message may also be clear if you are reading these words in a language which is not your native tongue.
