When I first talked about “Good Good Father” by Housefires in February of 2015, it was a little known song, yet my post got over 750 hits in one day! Since then, over 9,000 people have viewed my two posts about this song. Of course, Chris Tomlin has since brought the song into the international spotlight.
But the reason for the phenomenal response to this song is not just because of the exposure or even that it’s a well-written song (although it is a well-written song!). I believe it’s because the message Pat Barrett and Tony Brown have brought through this song resonates so deeply in the hearts of God’s people. And it resonates so deeply because Papa God Himself is behind it! He is revealing Himself in a fresh way in this hour and is transforming people’s lives with His love all around the world. He wants His children to know Him as He really is…a good, good Father. He wants us to know who we are…loved by Him. (And this is why “Good Good Father” is an appropriate anthem for this blog!)
So, as we continue our special 40-day fast from fear, going deeper into His perfect love, this is another great video interview with Pat Barrett to remind us again of the Father’s love for us. This time it’s with my favorite Norwegian, Leif Hetland (Global Mission Awareness). Like the song, this interview is powerful. Get ready to be impacted as Pat Barrett describes how our good, good Father impacted him to write this song.
