Hidden in Abba

Abba and little girl walked and talked. They were having a wonderful day together by the sea.

“Abba, can I stay at with you forever? I love your house and I love getting to spend time with you every single day.”

Abba picked little girl up and embraced her. He was moved at her request, “Of course, sweet girl. You are my daughter now and you are always welcome in my home!”

Abba set little girl back down again and took her hand. They continued walking along the ocean shore. As they walked, the waves grew stronger and stronger. Little girl loved this but was also a little bit afraid of the vast expanse of water and the crashing sound as one wave after another came closer.

Little girl held up her arms to Abba. He picked her up again. She laid her head on his shoulder and watched the heavy waters come closer one at a time with a cadence filled with power.

Abba held onto little girl tightly. He knew she was trying to be courageous despite still feeling scared.

In the secret place of His tabernacle He shall hide me;
He shall set me high upon a rock. Psalm 27

Day 29: Sea

Little girl woke up and she ran to the porch. She looked out far beyond her usual gaze and saw the sea in the distance, past the grassy hills and the tall trees. For some reason, she had never noticed it before today.

She looked back at Abba and saw the delight in his face at her excitement over this newfound discovery. Little girl had always loved the waters and the waves and the sea and now she realized they were closer than she had thought.

Abba knew this about little girl. He knew how exciting this was for her. He anticipated the day he would take her to visit the sea.

Little girl was content to study the beautiful waters that reminded her of forever. Whenever she looked at the wide open sea, she knew there was much more to life than what she understood. She was excited to explore it with Abba one day.

Day 21: Wave

Little girl tossed and turned. Then she woke up and sat straight up in bed, wondering where she was. Little girl had dreamt about waves all of her life. She loved water and loved the ocean.

Little girl had seen the roar of the stormy seas from before she could articulate what the sea was. She felt great fear and great excitement as she literally felt the the rumble of the waves crashing on the open shore. This feeling she remembered inside and out. It stayed with her.

Little girl woke up having dreamt of the ocean shore and the waves crashing one after another after another. She knew the waves were strong enough and close enough to cause damage but she also knew she would be okay.

With the memory of the seashore in the front of her mind, she looked around her room. She realized that she’d forgotten to ask Abba about the waves and the stormy seas. She decided today would be the day. She was excited to talk with him about this.
