Dear Abba 7 – Forgiveness

Banner Yesheua 10122-BannerShalom! I hope this email is a blessing. You are welcome to share it. 🙂  Abigail

Dear Abba,
we live in a world where much
forgiveness
is needed.

We need to both
forgive others
and
be forgiven ourselves.

I am so grateful for
Your perfect forgiveness.
You don’t forgive
part of what we do,
but all of it.

You don’t forgive us only
if we make promises of perfection
that You know
we cannot keep.

You just forgive us
when we ask.
And You love us enough
to give us the strength we need
to break the patterns of sin
in our lives
so that we never need to do it again.

You set us free
through Yeshua the Messiah
to walk in Your holy ways
as You taught us
in Your Torah…
Your teachings…
Your laws and commands.

And when we fail
because we lose sight of You
and of the target
You have given us,
You still forgive us
when we ask.

You are always there with us,
even when become fearful,
even when we become angry
because we don’t understand
what You are doing
in our lives.

You are there with us,
even when we stumble
and fail to live up to Your standards.

You are there for us,
for You know that we are but
mere dust,
human,
frail.

Yet,
You have also made us
in your image,
magnificently,
fearfully,
wonderfully!

We are Your children!
Not merely slave
or servant,
but also friend!

Thank You, Abba,
for creating us,
for wanting to have creatures
to be in love relationship with you
and for making the way
for that to happen.

Thank You, Abba,
for all the things I do understand
and for all the mysteries I don’t.

Thank You for holding us together
in the hard times
and keeping us humble
in the strong times.

Thank You that You will
not let us go so far astray
as to lose us.

Thank You for Your strong hand,
Your loving hand
of discipline in our loves
that proves,
once again,
that we are Yours!

B’shem Yeshua
