God's name

God’s name

Do you call God, Father, Dad or Daddy?
Have you ever thought about God’s name? How personal he is to you? My earthly father was distant, absent and judgmental so I had to find out over many years that my heavenly father was not like this.
My image of the word Father is one of authority, a bit like the Victorian version you see in Mary Poppins. But he ultimately loves you because he is your father. 
The idea of a Dad is more of an approachable person, who listens kindly to your problems and wants to suggest helpful answers to your questions. He is ready with his smile and gentle hand. He plays with you and enjoys your company.
Daddy is the ultimate form of a loving Father. He cuddles, and comforts, talks of and shows love. He is compassionate and merciful. He gives you infinite chances no matter how often you disappoint him. 
God in Heaven is to me a Daddy. He is not distant but constantly present which I find amazing. And no matter what I do, I can do nothing  that will send Him away from me. Now that is one cool Daddy.
