Good, Good Father

Good Good Father

Tonight during church I was so moved by the worship song that I was in tears.  I absolutely love worship music to say the least.  When the entire church is raising their voice to God to honor Him, well there is just something awesome in that and the fact that I get to participate when I cannot carry a tune in a bucket humbles me.  There is power in a group of God fearing people all singing to Him at the same time.  If you have never experienced that, I pray you will soon because it can make a terrible day into a treasured day.

I have heard this song like a hundred times over the past couple of years but tonight, it struck a cord with me.  The songs name is “Good, Good Father.”  I do not know who originally wrote or originally sang it but our church musical group sings it quite a bit.  Tonight we sang it before communion and as I looked down and the bread and the wine I was holding in my hands while I was singing and I truly heard the lyrics to this song as I sang them, I was overwhelmed with emotion and gratefulness.  Jesus allowed Himself to be physically nailed to a cross and hang there until He died because He is a “Good, Good Father” who loves us!!!  What more so we need???

Here is a link to a video of the group House Fires singing it.  I pray that while you watch this video you too will think about what Jesus gave so that you can one day be in Heaven with God in a perfect place, in a perfect body, with no more sorrow, shame, pain, suffering, heartaches, lies, confusion, or death.  I will put the lyrics at the bottom of this post for you:

Good, Good Father by House Fires

God is a good, good Father….and so very much more.  Tonight, do not lay your head down on the pillow without first looking up and thanking God for being your Father.  The air you breathe – that’s God.  Your family who loves you no matter what you’ve done – that’s God.  Your home – God.  Your car – God.  Your job – God.  Your finances – God.  Every awesome memory you have made in your life – God.  Your friends – God brought them to you because you needed them.  God had to work in like a million peoples lives just in order so that you could be born!  You are no mistake that’s for sure!  No, you are a creation of a God who loves you desperately and who is willing to help you if only you would acknowledge Him.

No matter how bad life may seem at times, and no matter how hard we are attacked by Satan and the evil in this world, we Christians know “how the book ends”.  Jesus wins!  We win!!  Heaven is our real home.  Earth is just a resting place before we get to be with our “Good, Good Father.”

Lord, you are so very much more than a good, good, Father.  You are an awesome, amazing, loving, kind, generous, patient, nurturing Father who only wants the best for each of us if we would only believe in You.  Like the song says God, “Your a good, good Father, its who you are, and I’m loved by you, its who I am.”  Thank you for your love and for never leaving us when we need you the most.  This world can be a mean, cruel, and scary place God, but knowing you are there to run to when life turns bad makes us comfortable and makes us feel safe in You.  Thank you for “who You are, and who we are”.  In Jesus precious name, AMEN!

With all love,

Pastor Brad Komgenick

 

Song Lyrics:

“Good Good Father”

Oh, I’ve heard a thousand stories of what they think you’re like
But I’ve heard the tender whisper of love in the dead of night
And you tell me that you’re pleased
And that I’m never alone

You’re a Good, Good Father
It’s who you are, it’s who you are, it’s who you are
And I’m loved by you
It’s who I am, it’s who I am, it’s who I am

Oh, and I’ve seen many searching for answers far and wide
But I know we’re all searching
For answers only you provide
Cause you know just what we need
Before we say a word

You’re a Good, Good Father
It’s who you are, it’s who you are, it’s who you are
And I’m loved by you
It’s who I am, it’s who I am, it’s who I am

Cause you are perfect in all of your ways
You are perfect in all of your ways
You are perfect in all of your ways to us

You are perfect in all of your ways
You are perfect in all of your ways
You are perfect in all of your ways to us

Oh, it’s love so undeniable
I, I can hardly speak
Peace so unexplainable
I, I can hardly think

As you call me deeper still [x3]
Into love, love, love

[x3:]
You’re a Good, Good Father
It’s who you are, it’s who you are, it’s who you are
And I’m loved by you
It’s who I am, it’s who I am, it’s who I am

You’re a Good, Good Father
(You are perfect in all of your ways)
It’s who you are, it’s who you are, it’s who you are
And I’m loved by you
(You are perfect in all of your ways)
It’s who I am, it’s who I am it’s who I am
