Attributes of Our Heavenly Father

Send to Kindle

by Lisa M. Prysock

Sometimes the storms of life can distort our view of our Heavenly Father.  We can easily forget who God really is when we go through times of suffering.  I can remember a time not so long ago in my own life when I had a distorted perception of the Father.  I’m so glad Jesus drew me into the Word so I could re-discover the attributes of God and my mind could be renewed. 

For one, the Word tells us He is like a Father and has compassion for us.   

Psalm 103: 13, the English Standard Version says this:  As a father shows compassion to his children, so the LORD shows compassion to those who fear him.

Secondly, He is merciful toward us and full of grace. 

Psalm 116:5, the King James Version says this:  Gracious is the LORD, and righteous; yea, our God is merciful. 

Thirdly, He is faithful.  We can depend upon Him, even though sometimes we are not very faithful. 

I Corinthians 1:9 of the New Living Translation says this:  God will do this, for he is faithful to do what he says, and he has invited you into partnership with his Son, Jesus Christ our Lord. 

Fourthly, God is a righteous judge.   

Psalm 119:137 says this:  Righteous are You, O LORD, and upright are Your judgments. 

He sees everything that affects us and knows all things.  He is omnipotent. 

Revelation 19:6 of the King James Version says this:  And I heard as it were the voice of a great multitude, and as the voice of many waters, and as the voice of mighty thunderings, saying, Alleluia: for the Lord God omnipotent reigneth. 

God is good. 

Psalm 73:1 of the King James Version says this:  Truly God is good to Israel, even to such as are of a clean heart. 

God is loving and kind. 

Psalm 86:5 of the New American Standard Version says this:  For You, Lord, are good, and ready to forgive, and abundant in lovingkindness to all who call upon You. 

I could go on and on with more of the attributes of our Father.  He is giving, considerate, creative, full of joy, thoughtful and mindful toward us, all powerful, deserving of our worship, and mighty…  Time and time again in my life He has proven His faithfulness, kindness, compassion, power, and mercy toward me.  Friends, be blessed with these reminders of who our Father is and how wonderful He is toward us.  Though we do not always understand why some painful or sorrowful things happen, we can trust Him.

Author Biography

Lisa M. PrysockLisa M. Prysock lives in the countryside of beautiful, rolling Kentucky just outside of the greater Louisville area near horse farms and four board fences with her husband of 19 years.  She homeschooled the two youngest of their five children and is excited about her youngest entering the journey of college life.   

She and her husband live in an average Colonial style home they are continually updating– with a funny looking Heinz 57 dog; an adorably dainty lady cat; two teenagers; a vegetable garden; numerous flower beds; and a tree house undergoing a remodel.  When not in teaching or writing mode, she is teaching herself to play the piano and violin.  Regarding this she laughs:  “It’s a pretty painful process, but I’m truly enjoying it!”   

Lisa loves all things old-fashioned and has adopted a slogan of “The Old-Fashioned Everything Girl.”  A few of her interests and passions include doll houses, long dresses and hats, gardening, reading the Classics, butterflies, swimming, walking, working out, cooking, sewing, crochet, cross stitching, arts and crafts, scrapbooking, decorating, and drawing.  She remembers writing her first book in kindergarten with help from the teacher and a stapler to hold the pages together.  She won a literary award for a short story in eighth grade and has been writing ever since.   Some of her favorite authors include Jane Austen, Laura Ingalls Wilder, and Lucy Maude Montgomery. 

Recently, her husband remodeled a room in their home with a picture window overlooking a valley containing a creek and wooded area, transforming the space into a serene writing office/sewing room.  “It’s a great source of peace and inspiration for me… and pure joy not to be writing from the busy kitchen amidst the household chaos on a laptop.  Growing teenagers eating every five minutes makes for a constant stream of happenings!”   

Be sure to check out her new release Geneva, a fiction Christian Historical Romance series with a theme on the fruits of the Spirit!  These days, Lisa is also writing her first Contemporary Western Christian Romance novels as a contributing author to the ‘Whispers in Wyoming’ series with Danni Roan, Kari Trumbo, Lynn Winchester, and Rachel Skatvold. She recently released Book 3 in the series, Dreams of Sweetwater River. 

Lisa is an Amazon bestselling and award winning author of To Find a Duchess, an Inspirational Regency Romance; ‘The Victorian Christian Heritage Series’ which includes Hannah’s Garden:  a Turn of the Century Love Story and Abigail’s Melody; and ‘The Lydia Collection,’ which includes The Redemption of Lady Georgiana (a Ruth love story of modern day Regency proportions), Protecting Miss Jenna (an Antebellum Era Christian Romance Adventure), and Persecution & Providence (a ‘Jane Austen-ish’ mail order bride story from the Pioneer Era).  She is also the author of a devotional/Bible Study, Arise Princess Warrior and recently released The Shoemakeran Old-Fashioned Regency Christmas Romance.  Lisa writes clean and wholesome literature while sharing her faith in Jesus Christ in a creative way.  She is a member of ACFW and Louisville Christian Writers.  You can find out more about Lisa at:   www.LisaPrysock.com
