“Our Father...” How the words roll off my heart this morning, warm in Your presence,
Father of all life,
of my new life,
of my Rebirth,
and of all the rebirthed lives, collected, called Your Son’s Bride…
Father of compassion,
of care incomprehensible for tiny us, concern for little frets and heartaches of such creatures miniscule.
Yet it breathes on, your constant Father-love. And this morning as I say the word, I feel it: feel its meaning surround me, gentle wide embrace.
Father Who art in Heaven, where my life is hid in You with Christ.
Father, thank You, for all You are as Father—no human dad, however good, can live a picture of it fully…
Thanking God today for all He is as Father…
