I Corinthians 6:18 - I will be a father to you, and you will be my sons and daughters, says the Lord.
Sometimes, I'm amazed at how He does it. I forget that He has the world at His fingertips. That all resources are His, and He is not afraid to use them to communicate directly with me.
After a lifetime of seeking God, as Abba, as father to the fatherless, this is what I've learned about him.
He lifts me up.
He teaches me to dance.
He works, tirelessly.
He spurs growth.
He leads the way.
He holds me.
He wipes my tears.
He opens doors.
He closes them.
He uses people to reach me.
He desires the best for me.
He says "yes."
He says "no."
He asks me to wait.
He never hurries.
He is never surprised by my circumstances.
And this is more than enough for me.
Thank You, Father.
For the rest of my life, I will thank You.
