I know my dad did the same thing. I actually almost had an abortion but I the test came back negative that I wan not pregnant. He is 17 & he is amazing. Praise God for him. A man who does not b\take care of his kids is not worth salt. God filled the hole in my heart that I had for my whole life for my dad. I don't even want my real dad. The Lord is amazing! He loves us it blows my mind! I have 4 boys & I did have 2 other abortions but there in heaven with the Lord!

I so love this song! My father left my Mom when I was 15. He wants back in my life now that I'm in my 30's. We'll see.

Unfortunate actions needn't be self perpetuating. They may be reversed, but only Jesus Christ can reverse them. Even still we have the consequences to live with.

Sylvia Tuggle Ratliff things like that are never easy with which to come to terms. For me, only Jesus' healing touch through salvation's grace and mercy has brought me to a place of understanding. Presence in a child's life is a choice and if not done willingly, can communicate a level of worthlessness which is often difficult to overcome, except through understanding the value we have in Christ as our identity is established in Him. Sadly, alcohol leads to a mixed bag of misunderstandings - perhaps on everyone's part. But Jesus does understand even when we don't, thankfully. Thank you for so openly sharing your heart on this. May the Lord's healing touch smooth out the rough edges of bad memories, bringing peace that passes understanding. May He help all of us to remember that, though earthly fathers are made in God's image, they, like we, are not perfect. Help us Father to forgive those by whom we have been influenced adversely, remembering the power of God to heal and restore that which the moths have stolen. May God's presence with you and your family heal every wound, resonating in truth, your Father, which art in heaven. God Bless you!

Connie Reimer They were not, but they were separated for part of my young adult life. They were both there for me through their problems, and they reunited. Both are now deceased. I was divorced when my daughters were 12 and 14. My husband was an alcoholic, never around when any of us needed him and some of the time he was around was violent and ugly. They would have been better off had I divorced him sooner. It was my failure in marrying that was the root of the problem, but I love my girls and my grandkids. They came to an uneasy peace with him during the last years of his life, but failing to have a strong father figure did damage them.

Sylvia Tuggle Ratliff are your parents divorced?

  • 2012-01-11T17:20:28

It is not the divorce, though divorce is not good, that damages the children. It is abandonment, either physical or emotional, by one parent. Often the father, especially if the wife initiated the divorce. There are a lot of divorced dads who are more there for their children than some of the fathers who sleep in the same house with them every night.

Thank you, for reminding us how important fatherhood is. I love my dad.

Beautiful music and video! Such a powerful message.

This is so sad. I go through a situation like this. My husband and I raise his niece, and her mother never comes around or calls to check on her, or seems to have any care for her at all. I hate it for her, but I have recently tried a different tactic. Instead of staying mad at her all the time, I have started praying for her.

For the first time I'm able to see how the curse of divorce causes the children of divorce to often live in the perpetual cycle of propagating father-less-ness. If man was created in God' image and through divorce abandons his family, does it not perpetuate the evolving societal abandonment of God, the Father?
