I just had to post this song by COE Featuring Canton Jones called I Forgive You. This is a song to the Fatherless children out there. When Children are abandoned by their parents there is a void that is placed in their hearts to which only the Holy Spirit can fill. Some children end up looking for love in the wrong places and this includes children of single-parent families. The absence of either parent can affect a child in so many ways; however, just know that if you are a child from a single-parent household, just believe that God is your Father. He will take care of you and He is the only one that can satisfy the desires of your broken heart. Bitterness from the abandonment can affect your spirit. Learn to forgive your absentee parent or parent(s) in your life and start to Lean on God as your parent and guardian. He will guide you to higher ground. He will provide for you with the necessary support system in order for you to fulfill your God-given destiny.
Some people may not have grown up with their paternal parent(s) and may have been adopted as children into a different family, but that is how God shows His love for you as well. He provides love for you from a different source. My Grandparents adopted my sister and I when we were young because my mum was just a teenager when she had us, so I respect my grandparents very much for having taken care of us all that time until my mum was able to take on the baton during my teenage years. Respect your adoptive parents if you are an adopted child. Not all parents are perfect (which includes adoptive parents), however, if they show you the type of love the God expects for you to receive from them, you will grow up to be a great person with a God-driven destiny. Give God all the praise and never take the people that He has blessed you with in your lifetime for Granted. You just don’t know what you’ve got until it’s gone, Amen. I pray that this song ministers to the fatherless and motherless children who need to know that you need to forgive your parents who abandoned you in order to move on and be successful in all that you want to achieve in this lifetime. Unforgiveness traps you in a cycle that keeps you bound to bitterness so learn to let go and Let GOD.
if My people who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land.
For You, Lord, are good, and ready to forgive, And abundant in mercy to all those who call upon You.
“For if you forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you.
