trustworthy Abba

I am joining with Kate Motaung for Five Minute Friday. The goal is to write for five minutes about a word. No extreme editing; no worrying about perfect grammar, font, or punctuation. Unscripted. Unedited. Real.

Today’s Prompt:


Take a moment
Ask Abba
What are You turning me towards
and what are You turning me away from?

Simple questions
waiting on
Simple answers
from a good, good Father

When we come like a child, there is no fear
When we come as little ones, there is nothing to be afraid of
Shame and condemnation flee far, far away from me
when I come with childlike trust, believing He is good

When He asks me to turn away from something,
it is because He always has my good in mind
He doesn’t desire to withhold from me
He only desires to give to me extravagantly

We can ask without fear
that He lead us and guide us
and trust He will do it
He will only lead us into that which is our good
and is for our best
that we might know Him more and more
that we might love him
and trust the goodness of His heart towards us

Take us deeper into Your heart, Abba
Bring us closer to You, Father
Turn us towards that which You desire for us
Turn us away from that which keeps us from You

What a wonderful Abba, what a wonderful G-d
