"This resurrection life you received from God is not a timid, grave-tending life. It's adventurously expectant, greeting God with a childlike "What's next, Papa?" God's Spirit touches our spirits and confirms who we really are. We know who he is, and we know who we are: Father and children. And we know we are going to get what's coming to us-an unbelievable inheritance! We go through exactly what Christ goes through. If we go through the hard times with him, then we're certainly going to go through the good times with him!" ~Romans 8:15-17 (The Message)

Many of us celebrated Father's Day Sunday and MANY of us are still resting today from all the cooking and cleaning, I was so aware on how much my heavenly Father means to me at this Season of my walk with Him. I now know who I truly am because I now know who my heavenly Father is! Just like I know who my earthly Father is! Now, I truly go to Him as a child. I cry out to Him as a child, I laugh with Him as a child, I ask for His wisdom and leadership as a child, but MOST of all-I ask Him for security, protection, and a clear path on where to go.

I know that our Father who art in heaven knows BEST when it comes to our lives because He gave us life to share with the world who our Father is. As many of us have experienced the pain and despair of spring storms this year - we have also relished in the victory we have been given from our Father. He has walked with us hand in hand through the storms. Now we rest in the calm and peace that our heavenly Father gives us!

Our Father, Abba, loves us so much we can't even comprehend it! God can't wait to favor us with abundant living that brings Him all the glory! Go to Him today and call Him-ABBA-DADDY-PAPA-tell Him - I love you and I know you know what's coming to us and help me to believe in you and your goodness and the inheritance of abundance for all eternity!
