Christian~ese 101: Abba

What is the

Christian~ese Word 









Such a simple word,

using only the 

first two letters of the alphabet,


so powerful



said from the 

Son to His Father~

"Abba! Father!

All things are possible for You; remove this cup from Me;

yet not what I will, but what You will." Mark 14:36

The same word

filled with the same power

when said

 from His Sons & Daughters~

"Because you are sons,

God has sent forth the Spirit of His Son into our hearts, crying,

          'Abba! Father!'" Galatians 4:6

The same word

filled with the same power


You & I 

receive & believe in



who shouted out the word first


His Father

making it possible

for us to 

shout it out 



Our Abba

who art in heaven

hallowed be thy name~

 "For you have not received a spirit of slavery leading to fear again,

but you have received a spirit of adoption as sons by which we cry out,

                'Abba! Father!'" Romans 8:15

Happy Fathers Day Abba, 

every day is your day

 So thank you for everything, 

is what I have to say. 

I thank you for loving me,

     when I need it the most~

   I thank you for humbling me, 

when I begin to boast. 

I thank you for hugging me, 

when I am all by myself~

I thank you for healing me, 

back to good health.

I thank you for providing 

for my every need~

          I thank you for your direction,   when I ask you to lead. 

   I thank you for giving me peace, 

           when anxiety is my friend~  

I thank you for always being 

         available, on you I depend. 

I thank you for your comfort, 

    when I am filled with tears~

    I thank you for your presence,    

        knowing you are always near.

I thank you for carrying my burdens, when they weigh me down- 

I thank you for lifting me up,  

         when I stumble to the ground.

 My eyes fill with tears as I thank you for the best gift of all~

   That I finally unwrapped, when I heard my name called. 

  You whispered, "I love you My child, come meet My Son~

    Look up on that cross, & see what He has done.

He's the Ultimate present, 

          that comes with a guarantee~

  To Live Happily Ever After forever, was His message for me. 

So I thank you, for this free gift      from above,

 Wrapped with Grace & Forgiveness, 

       and your perfect Love.

daily I celebrate you~

  Know that your little daughter, truly loves you too.
