Good Good Father

My freshman winter break, I attended a conference in OKC, dedicated to minister to college students by diving deep into the Word of God. At this conference we had huge break out session filled with worship, lessons, and key-note speakers. During one of our worships the band led us into a new song called, “Good Good Father”, by Chris Tomlin. I began singing these words and I remember tears filling my eyes because, while singing, I felt overjoyed by Jesus’s presence in that auditorium and in my life.

If you’re unfamiliar with this song, here are the lyrics (I bolded my favorite parts).

I’ve heard a thousand stories of what they think you’re like
But I’ve heard the tender whispers 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
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
Because 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
As you call me deeper still
As you call me deeper still
Into love, love, love

I just find it so comforting that “I’m never alone”. While bumps in our walk with christ do and will happen, it is so uplifting to know that our God will not leave us to be alone… EVER. He is a “Good Good Father” and we are “loved by” HIM. I also find it so comforting to know that when we question ourselves, that God knows the answers to everything even “before we say a word”. Words can’t describe the LOVE that our Good Good father has for each of us, it is so true “I can hardly speak”.  

On this Father’s Day, not only am I beyond thankful for my own daddy (btw who is so ahhhhmazing!!!!!!), I am also thankful for our Heavenly Father. It is so comforting to know that our Good Good Father always welcomes us with open arms and unconditional love.

happy sunday friends + happy father’s day to all the amazing dads out there!
