My Daddy

I believe that especially for little girls, their understanding of God comes from their relationship with their father. My Daddy is the most loving and patient man I have ever met. He is also a minister. He and my mother taught me many things about God. Ultimately, I learned about the grace of God. I learned that you can have a personal relationship with him, and I learned that he can guide your life while still giving you choices. One thing that I am still working on, however, is speaking with God when things are going well as well as when things are difficult.

I am so sorry you went through that. I was sexually abused as a child also. Not by my father. It has left me with never feeling loved and no trust of anyone. But I do pray for I just feel in my heart my heavenly father would never hurt me. He is there to talk to and listen.Everything else may be ******** from me,but you will never take him from my heart. Never give up on him he has the only true love<br />
there is.

You say "for little girls, their understanding of God comes from their relationship with their father." What happens to little girls who are sexually abused by their father? What are the little girls to do when trust is destroyed, love becomes hate and leaves them with anger and fear even into adulthood? From what we learn God is a man, how can they trust or believe in God?

you are lucky you had someone modelling Christ for you, growing up.i didn't but am definitely planning to be that person for my children[when they come]..

You were very lucky to have a good father my good father existed only in my dreams I did not learn anything from him except watching this alaholic guy come home every night. I am a Roman Catholic and I believe that because of her I believe in God.

I learned to love my father after he died. It was possible as came to believe in eternal life. Each of us are importent and grow wise through love.

i didn't have a loving father but i have THE FATHER who loves me and sent HIS SON to die for me. i just want people who didn't have fathers in their lives to know they DO HAVE A FATHER WHO LOVES THEM VERY MUCH.

I too had a minister father who taught me about the love of God by his example. It is such a blessing to have grown up in that environment. <br />
You might try posting reminder verses around your house. When you read them you will be reminded to talk to you heavenly father. You could even use the verses as your prayers, especially prayers of thanksgiving.<br />
Thanks for the post.
