My Abba

Abba Father,

I love your presence,

I love you and your loving kindness.

Thank you for your discipline,

I know it’s because you love me,

help me to embrace it

even when it stings and hurts

and my flesh balks at obeying.

Help me to be wise,

listen and obey—

I know it’s the way of life.

I’m most myself with you,

no pretenses,

no self deception,

no more striving.

I can’t believe you’d care so much for my heart,

my joy, my peace,

that you wouldn’t let me settle

for all the lesser things I’d desired.

I’m grateful for closed doors,

all the frustrations and pain.

It’s led me to discovering you—

and slowly finding me.

I love you Abba.

Amen.
