Abba Father, can it be

That a Father cares for me,

That the God, of Heaven above

Hears, with patient, tender love

Every creature's maker, He

Can it be, He cares for me?



Fists of fury, raining down

Metal objects, welt and wound

Sudden blows across the face 

Violently, destroy, debase,

Skin and muscle, bruised and torn

Heal, but ridicule and scorn

Words, designed to tear apart

Leave in shards, a shattered heart

Abba Father, can it be

That a Father cares for me?



Yes, I know He cares, I see

One who hung, upon a tree

Wondrous love, I comprehend

Without measure, without end

Yet, within this breast, I find

Discord, with my finite mind

Oh distrustful, fragile heart

Trust Him fully, not in part

To His throne, in heaven draw nigh

'Abba Father' there, to cry

  



I scribble things down, to work out thoughts. I'm not sure about posting this but thought it might help another who has never felt an earthly father's embrace or experienced love or approval.

Today, 1 Peter 5:7 was brought to my attention, twice, as was Matthew 11:28-30

He cares!

 



If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW

Beautiful! And so true. HIS Love is perfect, and a consuming fire, that is the love he came to give, freedom , from all fear, our part is to trust Him, knowing ALL things are for our good, I love your poetry, keep it up! Blessings to a beautiful sister in Christ.
