In Him



“Little girl,” Abba’s voice got little girl’s attention.

“Yes, Abba,” she answered, a little bit distracted.

“You seem concerned about something. What is it?” Abba investigated the unsettledness He could see in little girl’s countenance.

Little girl looked up into those deep dark brown gentle eyes that seemed like they held the ocean and the mountains and little girl’s past and future in them. In that moment, tears began to well up and slowly fall down her cheeks one by one by one. She realized who He was and how much bigger He was than anything else.

Abba picked her up and held her as all of her fears, concerns and difficulties that had been holding her attention slowly faded and fell away one by one by one.

I am joining with 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.


Shabbat Shalom

Taking a moment as the Sabbath has come
To say that My heart is aching and burdened for the people of Israel, my people

Abba, may You awaken Israel’s heart to You
Abba, may You strengthen and steady Israel’s steps
May You let Israel see her King in His glory
Abba, Your people are pressed and need You
Please visit Israel, from the north to the south,
From the east to the west
May Your people know You are their Keeper
May they know You are for them
May they experience You with them today

As the atmosphere of Shabbat
Rests upon Israel
May Israel rest and lean upon You
