We all come into the world helpless, dependent, and needing acceptance, to be treated as worthy, and to be blessed.

In today’s video, speaker, counselor and life coach Ronnie Roque speaks on the “Wounds of a father.”

You may be asking yourself, “What is the father wound?”

The father wound is the absence of the love from your birth father. This wound can be caused by several reasons, a few being:

  • neglect – I am unimportant
  • absence – divorce, separation, death
  • abuse – mental, physical, sexual, spiritual
  • control – domineering
  • lack of blessings – at various stages of life, and lack of affirmation that leads to a lack of self-acceptance.

More effects from the father wound are low self-esteem, a deep emotional pain inside, and a performance orientation that makes us “doers” rather than “beings.”

While salvation makes us a new creation in Christ, it does not necessarily address this wound inside.

We tend to have four barriers that inhibit the healing of these wounds:

  • pride – not willing to confront change or change.  You think “I’m alright.”
  • sin – not willing to confess sin or receive forgiveness.
  • lies – misconceptions about yourself, your birth father and your Father God.

Instead of going to the pain and receiving the healing that we need, we tend to respond to life events by creating a misconception about ourselves.
