I didn’t have a care in the world
I was a daddy’s girl
I knew no matter what life threw my way
He was going to be there to protect and help
Even if I caused the problem myself

In the times when he couldn’t help
He’d still help in a way
By having a kind or encouraging word to say
And his words were always Bible based
In God he had unwavering faith
Acknowledging man’s limitations, he’d say
All we can do is hope and pray

My daddy is no longer with me
There are times I feel there’s no one to lean on
Who will I turn to when something goes wrong?
Then Spirit of God reminds me
God is still here.
Jesus said He would be with us until the end of the world (Matthew 28:20)
So, I’m still a protected girl.

Insight

It’s such a blessing to have a strong person in your life to lean on.
someone who will be there in helping you make tough decisions,
who will always try to help with whatever you need, and try to lift you
up when you are down. When this person is no longer in your life, it leaves a
huge vacuum and you may worry about who will help you now. But the Lord reminds
us in Matthew 28:20 that He is will never leave us. He will be there until the end of our lives. He is also able to do anything we may need including sending us someone to support us.
