Little Stephanie had only seen her soldier dad twice in two years. They each wore a key chain with half a heart on it, Her only wish was that Daddy would be home for Christmas. As she was sitting on Santa's lap at the mall, he suddenly handed her the missing piece of her heart. Daddy was home for Christmas.
A lot of people have wished for a daddy - not only at Christmas. Because either they haven't had a father, or the one they had was distant. Or abusive...angry...gone.
In a way, we all have a daddy deficit. Because we were made for a love relationship with a Heavenly Father. But the Bible says, "Your sins have separated you from your God" (Isaiah 59:2). We're away from God because we've tried to be our own God, running our own lives our way.
But Jesus came, in the Bibles words, "to suffer for sins...to bring you to God" (1 Peter 3:18). His death on the cross was to tear down the wall between you and God. So you could be His child. And, yes, He could be that Father your heart has always needed.
