Abba Father…Here am I, Your little boy. I’ve come running to You, with a reckless abandon, as I just climb up on Your lap, curl up in Your loving arms, and rest my weary head against Your bosom…as You embrace me, kiss me, and hold me close to Your bosom. Your peace, Your comfort, an overwhelming sense of well-being floods my heart and sweeps over my soul, as I listen to Your voice speaking to me so softly and so sweetly, reassuring me so lovingly, so tenderly, so affectionately…
**________**, honey…I love you. You are My child, My little boy, and I am your Father and your God. I take great pleasure in you; you’re the apple of My eye. So be comforted and be reassured of My unfailing love for you. I rejoice over you with singing. My heart delights in you, and I long to fill you with all My fullness…with all the fullness of God. I long to pour all of My Blessedness and all of My Goodness into you, to have this intimate fellowship with you that we have, and to become ever more one with you, just as We are One with One Another in Our Blessed Holy Trinity. You are a good boy, **________**, and I am well-pleased with you…not because you are without sins and failures, without mistakes and imperfections. No, honey, I know you are but a child…laden with sins and failures, laden with mistakes and imperfections. Even so, you are a good boy in My sight and I am well-pleased with you…because you have set your little heart to trust in Me with an unwavering trust; you have set your little heart to depend upon Me with an unreserved child-like dependence; you have set your little heart to obey My will, and to accept My will, with an unquestioning child-like obedience. These are the things that define you as a good boy, and make you to be well-pleasing to Me. Don’t you understand, honey? A child melts his Father’s heart…you melt My heart…when you just come to Me, climb up on My lap, curl up in My arms, and rest your little head against My bosom. That melts a Father’s heart, because it is a child’s way of expressing absolute trust, absolute dependence, unquestioning obedience. It is all that a Father would ever need, or want, or desire of His child…of His little boy.
And so, **________**, greatly beloved…rest your little head against My bosom, and close your little eyes. Drift off to sleep here in My arms in an unruffled child-like rest. Abide here with Me with an unclouded child-like carefree joy. Don’t you worry, don’t you fret. Don’t be anxious or afraid. Trust in Me with all your heart, and don’t lean on your own wisdom, knowledge, and understanding. Watch for Me and wait before Me; look off unto Me and listen for My voice. Acknowledge Me in this way, and I will lead you and guide you by My Holy Spirit. He will place you where you are to be, lead you where you are to go, show you what you are to do to participate together with Me in My plans, My purposes, My will for you. He will give you the thoughts you are to think and to present, the words you are to speak or to write. He will direct your paths…if you would only trust your heart to Me. I will watch over that little heart of yours and keep it safe, if only you would just trust Me with it. So don’t be disappointed, don’t be discouraged; don’t be disheartened or disillusioned. Don’t be downcast, down-trodden, distraught, dismayed, or distressed. Don’t lament over the past, or be anguished about the present, or agonize over the future. You needn’t be angry, upset, frustrated, irritated, or annoyed. And don’t become impatient, or grow weary of waiting. I know the plans I have for you…plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you a hope and a future. You are My workmanship, created in Christ Jesus My Son to do good works…works that I Myself have planned in advance for you to do. Every day of your life was recorded in My book before you were born…before you ever began to breathe. So be still, and know that I AM your Father and your God!
Abba Father…I sing praises to Your wonderful Name; all Glory belongs to You Who rides on the clouds! Your Name is the Lord; I rejoice in Your Presence! You are a Father to the fatherless and a protector of widows in Your Holy Sanctuary! You find families for those who are lonley; You set prisoners free and enable them to prosper! [Ps 68:4-6]
