Any man can be a father, but it takes a special person to be a dad.

" My heart lives in so many places. With so many people. But God whispers to me that I really have only one home, and that is with Him. I will never be content on this earth. I will always be a nomad. It was meant to be that way. My heart was created with a desire for a home, a nest, a sanctuary, and that can be found only with Him in Heaven. "
" A lot of people “believe in God” but certainly don’t put Him at the center of their lives—I mean, He’s around and you ask Him for things and assume that it’s His job to meet your needs, but that is so vague and biblically inaccurate. As C. S. Lewis said in The Problem With Pain, “we don’t really want a father in heaven—we want a grandfather in heaven.” Fathers are demanding and controlling, but grandfathers—they just want the kid to like him. The grandfather lets you do whatever you want. Most people don’t really want God as a father, they just want to be spoiled. They want God to be a grandfather figure who wishes them well and lets them do whatever they think is best. And even though you know that isn’t love, you still want it because it makes you feel comfortable. But that idea of God is fantasy. That God doesn’t exist. If that’s the God you’re serving, you might as well admit that you are your own god and stop pretending your living as a child of the Heavenly Father. "
" What it means to be loved… The idea has almost been totally distorted. Love has to do with showing a dying soul the life-giving beauty of the glory of God, especially his grace. "
" I wish friends and lovers still wrote letters to each other, poetry to each other, or recorded their thoughts in the form of small, tangible gifts. There is nothing lovelier than receiving the innermost thoughts of another person in their handwriting, their words smeared with the side of their palm or looped in cursive ink so that they all run together. I would keep them all. "
"

"I’ve heard people tell stories about something powerful that happened and then at the end of the story say, ‘And then God showed up!" As if God were somewhere else and then decided to intervene.

But God is always present. We’re the ones who show up.”
