Daddy Fix It

Many Scriptures make better sense when you’re rearing children. “To have faith like a child,” used to sound like pretending that the pain doesn’t exist, or to remove our negative reactions and try to restore our former ignorance. 

Now, I see my daughter. No matter what goes wrong, what is broken, or how badly something has been damaged, she responds with a happy, “Daddy fix it.” The clothes washer was out of balance, the toilet didn’t refill, a hairband snapped. Her instant reaction remained, “Uh oh!…Daddy fix it.” 

Now, the washer had to go to a repair shop. The toilet filled on its own. The hairband was thrown away. She still relies on Daddy to fix anything, simply because he does fix the majority of our broken things.

How much more can we rely on the Heavenly Father?

When relationships are at an impasse, Abba fix it. 

Money gets tight. Abba fix it. 

Hearts break. Abba fix it. 

Loved ones are lost. Abba fix it. 

Evil increases. Abba fix it.

We don’t know what to do. Abba fix it.

We don’t know when, or by what means He will heal us and put things right. There is no need to force our own solutions as Abraham’s wife, Sarah, did. With the faith of a child, we can still smile and be satisfied that by the end of time Abba will fix it.

    I know it is about Daddy, but it sure seems to fit in the Dear Mama series too! I am amazed at the timelessness of some of the concepts in scripture – from generation to generation He gives us pictures and examples of how He loves and cares for us daily.
