Known by Abba

Little-girl-with-Israeli-soldiers-620x310 - Version 2


“Abba, I love you so much. I want you to come with me everywhere for my whole life,” said little girl with excitement mingled with expectation in her words.

“I’m so glad you feel that way, little girl. I’ll always be with you.” Abba said with joy unspeakable lighting up his countenance.

Little girl and Abba were both overflowing with delight as they thought about one another.

Little girl was overflowing with emotion at her life thus far. She couldn’t believe how Abba cared for her. The past and the challenges that had inundated every fabric of her being were so far from her now. Peace and joy had filled her and become her way of life.

Abba’s heart was nearly melting with tenderness for little girl. He knew today that something had changed and shifted in her. He knew that this was the next step into a new beginning in their walk one with another. He loved loving his children beyond imagination.

Today’s Prompt: Know


As my heart began to be awakened
I began to see everything differently
My heart began to perceive and know
That something absolutely amazing was tied up in this people
Called Israel

As I began to see and know,
A part of me was transformed from the inside out
I began to see the story I had believed
In a vastly different light
From a very different world
In a context unfamiliar
Yet at the heart level, oh so familiar

I began to perceive a story
from a particular place
with a particular people
And wondered if all I’d imagined before
Might just not be

The stories themselves hadn’t changed
but the people at the center,
the people of the Book, as they’d been called,
Had never left the pages
Yet the presuppositions and explanations of it
Had nearly forgotten its origins

And the story continues…
