Abba’s Big Love

Abba, I Belong to You 4

Writing Every Day for Thirty-One Days
about
Encountering Abba’s Heart

Day 13: Patience

Little girl awoke early and ran down the stairs to find Abba and the rest of the family. She found Abba sitting in his chair where he often sat in the mornings. He was looking out the window at the grassy hills and the trees that had grown steadily over the years.

Abba turned to little girl, his eyes filled with joy, as she approached him. His face radiated with love as she jumped into his lap, as was her normal morning routine.

Little girl would sit on Abba’s lap for what felt like hours to her but it was only a couple of minutes before she would begin to ask questions and talk to him about her dreams or what she wanted to do that day. It was like clockwork and Abba felt great delight every morning as she approached him and talked to him and asked what he thought about the many things on her mind.

Little girl was overjoyed with this life Abba had given her. Even at the tender age of five, she knew it was a beautiful gift to her. She was so thankful for all he had done for her and all he had given to her.

Little girl felt such a depth of love in her heart that she’d never experienced before she met Abba. She’d always believed there was more than what she had known and experienced. She couldn’t imagine what was next and what was to come.

You Remain

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 is:

World

SHOP1-600x600

You Remain

This world,
so quickly fading away
day by day, hour by hour
Aching for Your redemption

What are You doing, Abba?
What are You saying?

My prayer today
Please give me eyes to see how You see
Give me ears to hear Your voice
Give me a heart to comprehend,
to understand Your ways,
to turn towards You
moment by moment by moment

Your commands lead me to life
Your precepts cause my heart to live
Your testimonies make wise this simple heart

The world fades
You remain
The nations rage
Your Word stands

As the days and seasons prophesy
As the earth shifts and shakes
Every living being longs
for You to come,
for You to make all things right

May I be found pleasing to You
Give me a heart that comprehends Your ways
Give me a hunger for Your light, Your truth
that I can consume Your Word
and understand Your ways
that all darkness within would be removed

Cleanse my heart
Purify my hands
That I may be found pleasing in Your sight
G-d of my life,
My Beloved
My Abba
My Everything

You Win

Today’s prompt is:
Open
FMF-Open--600x600

You open the floodgates of heaven
and You deluge my heart with light

You set Your desire upon me
You awaken this muted heart
You breathe and life comes forth
and all aligns

Your desire calls me to come near
I consider what the cost may be

Then I realize once again
Your mercy has stacked the deck
There’s no consideration
That can stand
against Your desire
and Your mercy
for me

You win again

You are more real than anything
Being caught up in Your mercy
causes my heart to stand in wonder
at Your great goodness
that I do not deserve
and I never could earn

The cost of love is everything
for You
and nothing for me
All I must bring
is my complete surrender
to the goodness of who You are

Bring Your People Home

Abba, Your people Israel cannot find You today
Abba, Your firstborn Son is hurting and lost

Abba, would You visit the hearts of the sons of Israel
with Your tender mercy and kindness
Would You show them Your great love for them
Abba, please minister Your heart and Your holy desire

You are their merciful Father
Filled with lovingkindness and steadfast mercy,
relenting from harm, patient in love
You are their G-d
They are Your children

O Abba, in my day and in my time
Please bring restoration to Israel
Please bring redemption to Jerusalem
Please raise up a people who love You and love Your people

Abba, raise up friends of Your heart
Raise up ones filled with Your love,
Your Spirit, Your comfort
Abba, raise up a people who love
beyond themselves
Who live in the testimony of who You are,
Who long for Your heart’s desire for Israel
to come to pass
Abba, break in today on the heart of Your people
And draw them home
Bring them near to You once again

Every Day for Thirty-One Days
Abba’s Heartbeat for Israel

31 Days edit big

Today’s Prompt: Taste

retore Zion

Abba, connect our hearts with Yours today
Related to Your people Israel
And let our prayers reach Your ears
And reach Your heart
That the answers would rain down upon
Israel today

Abba, good Father of Israel
Would You open eyes to see,
Open ears to hear,
and soften hearts to believe
Would You let many taste and see Your great goodness
to them, and to all

Abba, restore Israel’s vision
Let them see
Restore Israel’s soul
Let them believe
Restore Israel’s hope
May this be an hour of hope restored
Great G-d of hope
G-d who restores the brokenhearted

Abba, would You bring redemption to Zion
Would You pour out restoration like rain,
the former and latter rain together
For Zion’s sake
For Jerusalem
That Zion would shine with righteousness
That Jerusalem would burn with salvation

Abba, this is Your desire
Satisfy Your own heart
Bring Israel home to You

Thank You, great G-d of restoration
