A girl once said ” Daddy what will I be?”,
Daddy looked at her, smiling at what He could see;
A woman of mature character and sincerity,
formed by Daddy’s love; an image in clarity.
The girl waiting the response of the wise,
gazed up to see tears in Daddy’s eye’s.
Daddy seeing the girl’s concern replied;
“My precious daughter, you will be a bride;
Because what I want you to be, is my humility;
it’s your future guarded by my love that I see;
All I could ever hope I invested in your life,
by a chosen man, that you would be his wife.
My precious daughter, your fathers love is infinite;
and knowing my faith in you gives you eternal benefit!”
So know my precious dear friend;
Jesus’ love, forgiveness and provision know no end.
The little girl is you, a Christian growing in faith;
the woman is you in God’s arms, nurtured and safe.
You see, God knows the struggles that exist;
but the man is Jesus whose love gives all power to resist.
