Wow! You know no one can tell me that God is not REAL. I mean there are just things that He does to let me know that He’s right here with me that I just can’t deny. So, as I was preparing to upload the post for today, I Can’t Do This/Part Two, which is about my journey of knowing God as Abba, I happened to glance at the suggestions over on the right-hand side of the screen and noticed that the first video it was suggesting was “Abba”! Kid you not!! But the thing about this song is that it’s the exact version of the song a lady I met at a conference in the Spring of 2017 sent me.
I went to this conference alone and meet a group of people who had driven there from far away…like northern California. I remember that one of the ladies in the group prophesied to me that God was going to send me a father figure because it was something that I was missing. I remember shedding a tear or two and then we exchanged numbers. Well, I didn’t hear from her until over a year later in July 2018 right when I was in the midst of one of the most challenging times of my life when I thought that that “father figure” had shown up in my life but turned out to not be the case, which left me hurt and devastated.
I remember sitting in bible study that day and seeing her text come through. I don’t remember it verbatim but I remember that she said that God told her to send me this song. I remember having this song on repeat for days. It comforted me during that time but I don’t think I was in a position at that time to realize its true significance. I didn’t get it then but almost 4 years later as I’m making this post…I do! That father figure God was sending me was HIM…My ABBA! It was HIM all along…I just had to get my heart positioned to uproot all the hurt I associated with a father(my natural father) to receive the love of THE FATHER…DADDY…ABBA!
C’mon now…I can’t make this stuff up if I tried!! But this has been God’s signature in my life over the past 20+ years I’ve been on this journey with Him. When He’s closing a chapter in my life and ushering me into a new season, He lets me know that “It is finished” by taking me back to the beginning…back to where it all started to let me know His perfect will has been done. Oh, how I love HIM. 🥰
I listened to this song today from a completely different perspective….I just love HIM so much!
So, I pray that you enjoy this version of “Abba” written by Jonathan David Hesler, covered by Josh Lehman. I pray that it blesses you as it blessed me and continues to do so, as you draw closer to Abba.
Love you, Fam!
Until next time…Smooches 😘
