thank you for your words of life,
your strength, comfort, and encouragement.
Thank you for you still, small,
ever present voice,
deep as the ocean swells,
buoying my heart up
in the midst of the storms
and rain of accusations.
I still my heart to hear you,
to wrap my heart around your words alone.
Thank you that in Messiah,
I am enough,
I have everything I need in you,
and that your father’s heart
is proud of your daughter
where I can only see failure and regret.
You only ever beckon me forward,
to press in to your promises,
leaning into your love,
your leading and grace,
through the dark resistant clouds,
your presence with me
always makes a way.
You are my eternal Father,
let me only believe more
in the riches of your love, mercy, and grace.
I love you Abba.
