Papa Can Fix It
My father has never been afraid of trying to fix anything. And as my mom will attest, most of the time he succeeds. His motto has always been, “Only if I run into a snag, will I call the professionals.” Papa has fixed many things in our home- a leaky faucet, a broken window, a jammed door, and the list goes on. I’ll never forget years ago, when one of the boys riding toys broke under the weight of a four-year-old on a two-year-old toy. I heard the simple reply, “Let’s ask Papa to fix it.” I could not bare to tell him that even Papa was going to find it hard to repair this toy’s broken plastic wheel.
Isn’t it a relief to know that when our lives are broken by the challenges of this world or the poor choices we make we can rely with great certainty on the fact that God can fix it? His love is the only thing that can truly heal our hearts and lives. All we have to do is ask Him.
And what a gift it is to have in our lives parents and grandparents like “Papa” who turn our eyes toward the ultimate fixer- Jesus Christ- who died and rose for us and offers us eternal life with Him!
