Poems To ABBA

Updated: 2 days ago

In September of 2019 I was thrown head first into God’s Refiner Fire. Not only was it the first and only time I’ve experienced this, I also had no idea what it even was. It just so happened that I few weeks in I found where Peter talked about it in the New Testament and knew instantly that was where I was. It was then I started keeping a journal and would soon be led to write poetry. Please know I’m not a writer or poet. I have been led tho to share some here and I will only to be obedient. If nothing else I hope they might help who ever reads them to know that we all struggle for acceptance and long to know that God sees and hears our cries.

❤️ Someone’s shooting a Gun outside

Our worlds gone mad

In you I hide

I don’t feel their angst,

their rage or fear

I’m OK with you right here

You hold me close

whispering my name

Saying “Don’t look,

it’s still the same”

You say “Be happy” feel secure

You belong to me now

in that be sure

You tell me look up

at your deep blue sky

past the Sun and Stars

to the heavens on high

Rejoice and dance,

praise your name,

You’re with me in the storm

my shelter from the rain

You say "stick around child

I’m going to use you

to convince this world

there's no need to feel blue

Remind them of my

unconditional love

To just repent and pray

to me up above

I’ll come running to them

as I did you

To make their Grey skies

the brightest blue

To show them the mysteries

of me above

The beginning where it started

This thing called love

When they put me first

above all else

Instead of down low

or up on a shelf

I’ll teach them how

you’re all just here

For the test, to learn

different lessons

That you hoped to be best

From Glory to Glory they will learn

What that means

How to see around what this evil

world schemes

To focus on me and nothing else

So I can come lead them to victory

And everything that it foretells.

Dream Again

You pulled me from prison

you opened the latch

You held out your hand

my strongholds no longer attached

You mended my heart

you vanquished my sin

You said " Now beloved

this is where we begin"

You took your strong hands and reshaped my mind

told me to leave all my worries behind

You said to look up

keep my eyes just on you

Nothing on earth beats the view beside you

You planted me firm on your solid rock

You showed me your vision

your plan from the start

You taught me to love

through untethered eyes

To never give up

regardless of sight

To always believe in things not yet seen

to open my heart and to once again dream.

No matter what tomorrow may bring

I'm standing today on your promises deemed

Each day I look forward to the new mystery

That points me to you and all that that means

I'll count it all joy

There can be no more doubt

That you alone decide when I come in and go out

I'll take time to listen to your every word

Knowing their life and that matters for sure

Thanks for your spirit

That guides me each day

Showing me when to step out in faith.

You saw me by the river

You felt my broken heart

You heard me cry "forgive me Father

please send your fiery spark"

I need to know you see me

please show me that you're here

Standing right beside me

in my moment of despair

I took your love for granted

I let the whole world rule me

Please can you forgive me

place me back in your reach ?

Your love is so amazing

your Grace beyond compare

For me you sent a Savior

my salvation you meant to spare.

You Came Into My Self Made Cell And Spoke Your Truth To Me

I Thought That I Was To Far Gone

No Light Was There To See

Battle Weary, Scarred and Torn

No Strength Inside Remained

Until The Day I Heard You Gently Say My Name

Leslie Child, Lift Up Your Face And Wipe Those Tears Away

There Is No Sin I Can’t Erase

If You Desire To Change

Throw Off Those Chains And Unbelief

All Those Worldly Lies

Take My Hand And I Will Teach You

How To Consistently Abide

In The Shadow of My Wings

Where Peace And Love Reside

I Have Come To Give You Rest, Hope and A New Life

Take Your Thoughts Off Of This World

Set Them Instead On Me Up High

Open Up My Word, Let It Discern Your Heart

So I Can Go To Work Cleansing All Your Soiled Parts

Remember My Commandments

To Love Me With All Your Heart

To Love And Help Your Neighbor

For They Are Like You Are

Weary And Heavy Laden

Burdens Too Big To Bear

Longing For Compassion

And Someone Who Truly Cares

Lengthen Out Your Wic

Burn Your Light So Bright

I‘ve Placed You In This World

To Help Me Make It Right

Tell Them How I Love Them

So Much I Gave My Life

How I Fashioned Them In Heaven

And Gifted Them With Life

How They All Must Come Together

For There’s Only One True Light

The Goal Is Bring Down Heaven

Where Peace And Love Reside

Like A Million Tiny Butterflies

Floating Through My Mind

I Try So Hard To Capture One

And Place It Here On Line

Thoughts Of All Your Glorious Ways

That I Have Come To Know

Your Caring, Loving Gentleness And Attention You Do Show

Your Love Like Water Flows Over Me

It Drenches Deep Down Into My Soul

Uncovering The Brokenness That Lies Beneath

That Only You Could Know

The Torment That Rushes In

When Darkness Overtakes

Your Blaring Light Splits The Night

As Darkness Scatters Far Away

My Childlike Cries, “Oh Abba Please

Rescue Me From This”

Like A Soldiers Battlecry Your Grace Comes Charging In

A Anchor You Are To My Soul On Life’s Long Stormy Course

Your Arms Of Warmth I shelter In

Your Glory My Reward.

God’s Children

The World Calls Us Damaged

Broken Beyond Repair

Jesus Calls Us Chosen

Fierce Unwavering Mercy We Must Share

The World Calls Us Noisy, Forward And Unlearned

Our Father Says We’re Special, Beautiful and Beloved

The World Says We Are Poor

For Mansions We Do Not Own

Yahweh Says We’re Wealthy

For Heaven Is Our Home

The World It Does Not Love Us

Says We are Unworthy and Alone

Abba Says We’re His

Magnificent And Strong

The World Says We Are Crazy To Believe In Things Unseen

Jesus Says We are Peculiar

And We Have All Been Redeemed

A Song For Him

To Write A Song He’s Never Heard

To Grasp Those Floating Mental Words

Pull Them Down And Out My Pen

Onto The Page A Song Begins

To Make Them Form A Melody

That One Day All The World Might Sing

To Give Life To My Greatest Dream

To Shine Forth My True Creative Being

With Pure Emotions Stir A Heart

To Bring About Or Ignite A Spark

Words That Have Such Healing Power

To Mend Not Break A Fragile Flower

To Add A Note That Cancels Tears

Hit A Beat That Soothes Not Seers

Causing Pain To Disappear

Replaced With Joy That Commandeers.

My Heart Celebrates What You’ve Done For Me

It Beats From The Mercy Rained Down From Thee

You Made Me To Be A Rose For Your Vase

Beautifully Tattered Salvaged With Grace

Some Petals Strong, Vibrant And True

Others Worn From Life’s Battles

Painfully Bruised

Once I Grew Strong In A Beautiful Bush

Surrounded By Many And Easily Pushed

Down By Their Weight Their Greed and Their Lust

Their Constant Desire To Strangle Pure Love

Until that Sweet Day Your Sheers Found My Stem

So Gently You Gave Me A Cut Meant To Mend

A Beautiful Vase You Made It My Home

On Your Window Pane You Placed Me Alone

Through Sunshine And Rain You Tend To My Needs

With Compassion And Love

You Set This Rose Free

I had no idea how powerful our words are that we allow to come out of our mouth until the Holy Spirit led me to get serious about studying God’s Word. There are many scriptures where we are warned tha

Today as I read David’s prayer in Chapter 17 of Psalms , I wonder how God felt when he prayed that his enemies and their children be destroyed. How do we reconcile this with other scripture when Jesus

So often I will have people come to me and tell me they don’t know what to say to ABBA Father when they pray. This got me to thinking about my own prayer life and how my parents taught me to pray as a
