Aloha everyoneee :)
so summer's here, and exams were quite alright [excluding chemistry and maybe some bio but heq they're alevels.. what could i expect? lool but let's not talk about exams shall we?] so going back to the post's title, i wanted to write this story the priest said today during the homily..
He [the priest] was on his way from Gozo to Malta.. unfortunately, the weather was really bad and the sea was so rough that the captain ordered the passangers to stay inside because the sea could have dragged them all with it.. everyone was really scared and some were even seasick.. but there was this young boy, around 9 years old, running about enthusiastically.. He then told the priest: 'Father I'm not scared ta!' and the priest asked him, 'how come?' The boy answered: 'Cause the captain is my Daddy!'
this really struck me cause it really showed the simplicity and the complete trust the kid had in his father.. i remember when i was around 8 i was rocking on my chair and the chair slipped, so i fell flat on my head and i got dizzy [obviously] but being the kid i was, i didnt know what dizzy meant u know? and when my dad had come home, i felt so secure cause he told me it was going to be alright, that he had gone through it.. and at that point i felt relieved..
now if my earthly father could give me such security through his love, how much security can God, being my heavenly Father who created me and who knows me inside out, offer me? the answer is so so much more! He's more powerful than any earthly thing.. more powerful than a physical storm (going back to today's gospel), even a spiritual one.. and we can be sure that He'll tell us that it'll be alright in the end, because He's passed through pain too.. and throug happiness too.. :)
thanks Father for always giving me what i need, for always being there for me, for never getting annoyed at me when i nudge you and keep asking you for help.. thank You for the father you've chosen for me, i'm so grateful to have him!
God bless you and all the fathers out there! :)
