Ran Away From My Father

I ran away from my Father
He seemed so very demanding
Don’t do that, don’t go there
Every word so commanding

I can do better without Him
I can do better alone
And so I ran as far as I could
And vowed I would never come home

I made my own decisions
Lived life as I thought I should
Who needs a father anyway?
He’s out of my life for good.

But I recognized to deny Him
Was to deny a part of what’s me
To ignore Him as my Creator
Without Him, I would not be

Before I began to return
I looked He was standing beside
Never asked ‘where have you been’?
Just come home my son and abide

Abide in My presence my child
Leave the cares of the world behind
I love you He said and embraced me
You are the one sheep I had to find

P.S. Your Father Loves You

Matthew 18:12 How think ye? if a man have an hundred sheep, and one of them be gone astray, doth he not leave the ninety and nine, and goes into the mountains, and seeks that which is gone astray?
