Christian~ese 101: Abba


What is the

Christian~ese Word 

for 

Dad

Daddy

Pop

Poppa 

Papa

Padre?

Abba

Such a simple word,

using only the 

first two letters of the alphabet,

yet

so powerful

especially

when 

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

when 

You & I 

receive & believe in

the

One 

who shouted out the word first

to

His Father

making it possible

for us to 

shout it out 

always 

to 

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

So

Let's 

Walk the Talk

and 

live out 

This Jesus Thing

This Christian Thing

not only on this 

Abba Father's Day

but every day~

Happy Father's Day AbbA 

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. 

  Happy Father's Day Abba,

daily I celebrate you~

  Know that your little daughter, truly loves you too.
