Abba’s Love

Abba,

thank you that you’ve adopted me,

receiving me as one of your own.

You’ve welcomed me into your household of light,

put your robe over my shoulders,

your ring on my finger,

and prepared a celebration feast to honor me

when I came to you as an orphan.

To know you had prepared this place,

waiting with heart open, long suffering,

so patiently for me

as I wandered adrift, bitter, and lost.

I’m amazed you never gave up,

that your love has proved most powerful.

Abba you endure with steadfast love and patience,

you are kind and thoughtful,

you are not prideful or boastful,

you don’t take into account all the wrongs you’ve endured by me,

you rejoice when right and truth prevail in my life,

You bear all things, believe all things,

hope all things, and endure all things —

for me.

And you never change.

Your love is amazing Lord.

Amen.
