Letters2Abba: 05.07.2011

Dear Abba,

How many ways can I thank you, You have brought so much peace to my life. So much understanding & clarification. Thank you for helping me to get all the things I needed to get done, such a productive day & I have you to thank for that! Thank you for being patient with me, YOU know me more than I know myself.

Lord, I want to get back in sync with you. Similar to syncing my Ipod, I want to connect you to my heart, give you permission to add new songs of praise, & memorize your word, listening to it & then applying what I hear to my everyday walk with you. I want to sing how Great Thou Art, how Stronger your tests make me.

How fulfilling & refreshing it is to know that whatever made-up story I have created in mind of you being disappointed with me when I didn't pray with that person or be nice to that person or spend the entire weekend doing ABSOLUTELY nothing but wasting precious time that I'll never get back, despite all that, you Abba, are the judge, the sole judge. You will look at me & say, my precious daughter, your verdict is Not Guilty. why? because your Redeemer Lives.

I can hear you saying "continue to Smile when things are falling apart & rejoice when a breakthrough comes knocking at your door. I am not finished with you yet.

Being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus.- Philippians 1:6 (NIV)
