The Father Wound

There is no single definition of a Father Wound and this wound can take many forms. Father Wounds affect both men and women and typically start at childhood. It may come from abuse, neglect, lack of affection, lack of acceptance and so on from the father or the departure of the father from the family. This wound is often hidden in the deeps of our subconsciousness and only comes forward in our relationships with other people, partners, family and/or our children. This Father Wound also propagates itself from one generation to the next.

The good news is that the father wound can be healed. God can heal this wound. God can take you to the depths of yourself and like a brain surgeon remove the tumor the father wound causes. Turning to God will be the best thing anyone can do to overcome the pain, the anger, the hurt that you, as man, may not know you have. The journey to this healing is not an overnight process, it takes time, it takes commitment, it takes surrendering to God. But you don't have to take this journey alone, we can walk with you as God changes you as you grow in God and grow into the man that God wants you to be.

Wouldn't be nice if we can keep this problem from happening? We can to a degree, once we have overcome our father wound then we can be better fathers to our children. We can mentor young children who don't have a father. We can make a difference.
