I Need You Dad

A voice for the children on Father’s Day:
I Need You Dad
On the day I was born in this dangerous world
I needed a power that would fight for my good
A man to provide for my mom and my needs
To clean up my mess when I pooped or I peed
I need you dad.
And as I grew into a boy off to school
I needed a wisdom to teach me what’s true
A man to instruct my curious mind
To discover the truth and share what I find
I need you dad.
And when I met other kids who wanted to play
I needed a hand to send me away
A man to tell me it would be okay
To leave mommy’s side and make friends today
I need you dad.
And when I faced bullies who wanted to fight
I needed a strength in which I could hide
A man to protect me from wicked abuse
To oppose the injustice and take no excuse
I need you dad.
And when I met women who melted my heart
I needed a father to help me be smart
A man to show me what desires are for
To test what I wanted, and needed, and more.
I need you dad.
And when I had failed you and lied to your face
I needed forgiveness, an abundance of grace
A man to show me what God is like
Who gives sinners a safe place to speak truth and not hide
I need you dad.
And when I had fallen captive to sin
I needed a savior to help me to win
A man to point me to victory in Christ
To teach me the gospel and give hope to my life.
I need you dad.
And now that I’m grown up and ready to fly
I need a good mentor to help me see “why?”
A man to reveal my mission and call
To give meaning to life, my passion and all.
I need you dad.

I'm the founder of TheoTech (www.theotech.org), a company activating a movement of Technology Entrepreneurship for the Gospel. This means beginning with God as the Customer and working backwards to invent products that deliver outcomes He desires. I created Ceaseless (ceaselessprayer.com) and SPF.IO (spf.io) as two examples of this principle in action. I'd love to connect if you're passionate about using the best business and technology have to offer to advance God's Kingdom.
