The Simple Life

Daddy’s Girl Unashamedly


You are such a daddy’s girl

He said with disdain

You need to get over this

You need to grow up

You need to find your voice

=================

Of course, I am daddy’s girl

Is that such a bad thing?

He gave me my life

He drew out my voice

He encouraged my dreams

=================

I am my Daddy’s girl

Is that such a bad thing?

He stood on the side-lines

Demanded I become

Described how he saw me

=================

A father must have the eyes of the Maker

To see his daughter as God does

To speak the realities over her

To pray her through the hard times

To model a life of faith

=================

A father must have the eyes of the Maker

To understand the call on her life

To refuse her less than full effort

To expose her to real life

To love her unconditionally

=================

A father must have the eyes of the Maker

To stand firm in the face of foolishness

To step aside when the lesson must be learnt

To come close amid the tears

To lend a hand in the journey

=================

A father must have the eyes of the Maker

To believe no matter what

To trust the process

To lead confidently

To speak words of life

=================

A father must have the eyes of the Maker

To chastise as needed

To encourage regularly

To ground deliberately

To love unconditionally

=================

A father must have the eyes of the Maker
