Resting in His Love
Have I seen such contentment on a face,
Except when Daddy’s love is so assured?
Between these two exists no other space,
Just rest and satisfaction in a Word.
For “Abba” is the name that children use
Responding to delight and favor shown,
When in the place reserved for those who choose,
To trust their heart’s desire to be known….
For ev’ry child inherits Adam’s state
And birth begins the journey of the kind
A seeker sees the things that separate
But hears the Spirit’s call to “Come and find.”
Adoption is the treasure to be found
By transfer of a gift forever bound.
