One of the many wonderful attributes of drawing near to God is the ability to spend time with our Father in Heaven as He draws near to us. We are taught through His Holy Spirit; resting peacefully on the Rock of our Foundational Cornerstone, our Messiah King Yeshua. Through our Unified God and King, we learn what true peace, grace, and love are in the secret place. God gives us the strength and ability to share these keys of wisdom through Christ Jesus. Thereby, sharing with all who see and hear, the evidence of Him and His Love that rests on us, His children, like a dove.
Someone recently presented the following question:
Is it normal to think your teacher was your biological father?
Is there a reason to believe that your teacher might be?
Is there family history or information from a loved one that was shared with you? Did your teacher mention something to make you feel this way? Do you share a resemblance and get along really well…leading you to feel a closeness to him? Maybe you just really like your teacher as a person, share a bond with him, and would like him to be your dad?
Students can build a bond with their teachers throughout the years. As students we spend a lot of time with educators and that in itself can instill trust, and wonderful memories that kids carry throughout their adult years and hold on to, some even stay in touch. I’ve gone back and visited teachers I hadn’t seen in many years : )
If you have not had a “father-like” presence so far in your life that need for love from a father can draw you closer to a father figure.
So no, I don’t think it’s strange or abnormal. The root as to why you feel this way should be explored more deeply to bring clarity and understanding.
If you can talk to your mom or a loved one you trust (preferably an older loved one who can share insight into your family history) share your feelings with them about this and I hope & pray that they will not only give sound advice, support your feelings and your need for your father’s love; but also help confirm whether or not your discernment in this matter is valid of who your teacher is to you or if it’s the emotional connection you are feeling; stemming from the void of your own dad paired with the positive relational attributes of your teacher positioned as a father figure in your life.
Many people have mother and father figures even “Big brothers” and “Big sisters” : )
Healthy relationships are about love, trust, respect, joy, peace, and support with a balance of guidance and direction you get and receive to be a benefit to one another. The Bible teaches that the Quality of Life begins with Love…and God is Love and when we see & hear the evidence of His Love in ourselves and others…that’s always a great thing.
All the best to you : )
As believers, we can make a difference, whether, by acts of kindness, partaking in conversation, or simply answering a question, these events are opportunities to show what the mind of Christ looks like. Thereby, applying Biblical principles to circumstances we face in our everyday lives and daily living.
John 15:9: “As the Father has loved me, so have I loved you. Abide in my love.” Jeremiah 31:3: “I have loved you with an everlasting love; therefore I have continued my faithfulness to you.” 1 Corinthians 13:7: “Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.”
May Yeshua lead us into all things.
Compassion in humility.
Be holy for He Is Holy.
