Doing What Abba Does

“Let’s do something fun together, little girl. Let’s build something together!” Abba said with great enthusiasm as he set little girl down in front of him.

Little girl shook her head excitedly, anticipating what Abba and she would do today. So much joy came out through the expression on Abba’s face and in his eyes. He was so excited to be with little girl and share more with her.

“I’m going to show you what I like to do and the things I like to build, little girl, so that you can help me,” Abba continued.

“Okay, Abba. I’m so excited to do this with you! What are we going to make?” Little girl asked enthusiastically.

“Just wait a little bit and I’ll show you. Just do what I do, little girl,” Abba responded.

With that, little girl began to watch Abba and do what he did. She would pick up pieces and put them together in very same way Abba did.

She was so happy to be able to work with Abba and to do what he was doing. This had always been her dream: to be like her father.

One of the sweetest surfing videos ever!! The little girl is surfing with her professional surfer dad by riding on his back while he catches waves. You will not regret it – only a minute and a half. Father & Daughter Surfing

    I like the idea of imitation. It’s not our own doing, but seeing what God does and following him. Happy Friday!

    I love the idea of not knowing the whole picture but being patient enough to build one step at a time – so wise 🙂

    Shannan, I love this post! Your picture of how God invites us into the work He’s doing…the ways He shows us how to be like Him. The love that pours out as we’re together with Him. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE!

    Beautiful post today!

    what’s beautiful about this is that God doesn’t want us to build alone, but wants to teach us. You described it so well! 🙂 Thank you for another beautiful post. I feel like I’m spending just a small moment with Him each time I read about little girl spending time with Him.

      Thanks for stopping by again and for your sweet note! I love how He wants us involved in what He’s doing no matter how little or much we can bring. The beautiful ways of His heart. Blessings!
