The Yearning for a Father and a Healed Heart

This is the second posting of sharing the traits of the characters in the novel "Evansing - Heart of the Irish Kingdom." The book is available at and

At the time Edwin recognized he needed to try to find a new life, he also experienced his deep desire for a father. He thought of this as he considered going to a local monastery and recalled how the priests were called Father. He desperately wanted to be loved and even celebrated just for being alive. He hungered to have the little boy in him nurtured and nourished.

Fathers have great responsibility for the present and future well-being of their children. The effects of poor fathering can leave serious scars on a child's heart. It behooves every father to recognize the importance of their daily interaction with their children for better or for worse.

Persons hurt by bad fathering have responsibility to get past the pain and disappointment. It all starts with forgiveness, no matter how atrocious the behavior they've experienced. As long as there is pain and unhealed wounds it is important to seek healing. One very powerful way is to simply ask God to heal your heart. It is out of one's heart that all the issues of life flow. In other words every part of your life will be tainted by whatever lies and hurts dwell in your heart. As James Richards of Impact Ministries has shared, if for example you have a poverty heart you will never feel worthy to have prosperity. There will always be something that will get in the way. Likewise if you struggle in relationships or health or whatever there is a root heart issue that needs healing. Consider visiting to check out their resources for healing the heart.
