Andrea Mantegna's Agony in the Garden, circa 1...

        I was reading in Mark 14 32-41 where JESUS was in the Garden of  Gethsemane to spend some time with HIS Father in prayer. Verse 36 states ” ABBA ,Father , HE said , Everything is possible for you. Take this cup from me . Yet , not what I will , but what you will.” JESUS was asking HIS Father for direction in HIS Life at a moment in which HE really found HIMSELF in need of the next right thing. HE looked to HIS Father for the answer. GOD is Good!!!

   I remember that when I was growing up I spent most of my time with my grandparents due to the fact that my parents were divorced and my dad could simply not handle all five of us kids. I was more than a handful as a child and just a bit too much for any one person. I spent quite a bit of time with my father , however , knowing how busy he was I never got around to trying to develop a close relationship with him. After he was murdered by his wife and her bodyguard in the country of Panama I regretted my decisions to keep myself from becoming close to anyone. I remember thinking that I should have brought my dad to CHRIST!!! I have been talking about JESUS for most of my life yet  let every opportunity to lead my dad go astray. I know that my father had more than enough evidence to convince him of the need for JESUS and that ,in fact , he could have made the proper choice before he passed on from this Life. I Hope and Pray in the name of JESUS that he did just that !!! Amen!!!

    I am not so much bound in thought of my Earthly father as I am my Father who is in Heaven. GOD is my Father!!! I so Love my Father GOD!!! There is never a time when I cannot , like JESUS , go to my Father in prayer for the next right thing. HE has Blessed and continues to Bless me with so many Blessings that they are beyond my imagination.  HE is my Protector and my Sheild, my Comforter and my Hope. HE is my Salvation!!! Thank you JESUS!!!

    This Father’s Day please reach out to your dad. He more than likely is waiting to hear from you. If he is ” asleep” and no longer with us please ask your Father in heaven to give him a message. He will get it!!! While you’re at it do not forget to tell your Father GOD  “Happy Father’s Day “.  HE has been waiting as well!!!

  Happy Father’s Day!!!

 I Love you!!!!!!! Mark
