“Abba, please help me,” little girl said, looking up at Abba with sorrow in her eyes.
“What’s wrong, little girl? Are you okay?”
Abba knelt down and tenderly picked little girl up. As he picked her up, she held onto him and would not let go. Despite the fears and concerns she still had to overcome, little girl knew Abba was safe and that he loved her very much.
After Abba held little girl tightly for what felt like hours, she asked Abba a question. Little girl spoke quietly, almost a whisper, “Abba, my heart still hurts sometimes even though you’ve helped me so much. Will my heart always hurt?”
“Little girl, I love you beyond words. I care for you and I will heal you fully, completely. Your heart won’t always hurt.” As Abba said these words, tears filled his eyes. He fully understood what little girl had experienced and why her heart felt broken at times and his heart hurt because her heart hurt.
Abba had never been distant from little girl’s experiences and he loved her beyond comprehension.
