Something to Think About

I was sitting in church listening to the message this morning, which was about how God wants to be the best Father we could ever ask for. Unfortunately, my human father has disappointed me so many times that I have a hard time seeing God as my Father. Yes, I've given my life to God but the word "Father" doesn't work for me. However, the word "Abba" does work for me.

Words are powerful. They're deeply ingrained within us. God isn't a "word." God wants us to go beyond words to understand He's the only thing we'll ever need and that He's the one who's always there to give us EVERYTHING we ever need. He wants to be our Father but if that means I need to think of Him as Abba, that's fine with Him. He's still my everything - everything that goes beyond a name... 

Thank you Jesus!
