My Story...

My dad was my first love. Or rather, I could say that I was his love from the moment I was born. No, not his only love, but to me, it felt like it.

I was blessed to experience the unconditional love of my dad, and my confidence grew and flourished in the consistency of that love.

Because my dad believed in me, I believed I could, and I did. I worked to live excellently because it pleased him. I loved who I was because he already did. I took chances in life because I knew he had my back. And guess what, I succeeded.

Of course, life had it’s trials but the greatest challenge of my life was losing him. Dad died, earlier than I could have ever planned, and I had to live on.

Though rocky and painful, I was able to emerge triumphantly because there was another relationship that mattered even more that I had developed. I had learned about another Father, a far superior one, who care for me even more than my imperfect dad did. 

You see, my dad’s love for me had only been a template or a basis of what a father’s love could be, and when I learnt about Abba, I longed for the kind of intimacy and relationship that I had shared with Dad. 

I was thought of a God who seemed to be arms-length away and somewhat unapproachable, but my heart and experience with my dad made me long for more.

I craved a deeper relationship with God, the Father-Child relationship that Jesus revealed but I wasn’t seeing in His disciples around me. He summoned. I answered. He drew me closer. He satisfied my craving and has never stopped.

Romans 8:15

For you have not received a spirit of slavery leading again to fear [of God's judgement], but you have received the Spirit of adoption as sons [the Spirit producing sonship] by which we [joyfully] cry, "Abba! Father!"

Living as His Daughter

My experience however, isn’t unique. I am confident that God wants the same for you. He wants to be that Father who fills every void because He alone can.

Jesus was the firstborn of the Father, and He demonstrated this kind of relationship with God. It was so dramatic that the people listened because He taught as someone with authority, and unlike anyone they had witnessed.

Romans 8:16 tells us that the Spirit of God within us testifies and confirms within our spirit that we as believers are God’s children. Children have a special place with the Father that begins long before they are able to do anything more than barely exist. It’s an unconditional love that exists even before we are born.

Jesus lived as He saw the Father living. He did what He saw the Father do. He lived so identically to His Father that He declared that you had seen the Father when you saw Him! Wow! We as believers are privileged to an experiential knowledge of God as Father, that can and will transform our lives when we let the word of God renew our minds.

If an imperfect, human father could love his child that much, how much more would your Heavenly Father, who formed you, love you? There’s more to experience and so much more that God has for you if you will relate to Him as Father and accept His offer to be His child, through faith in Jesus!

I pray that you will join me as we explore the Bible, talk and walk with Abba, and be made whole in His presence continually.

Mark 1:22 (NLT)

The people were amazed at his teaching, for he taught with real authority—quite unlike the teachers of religious law.

Mission

Our goal at Abba’s Daughter is to bring teaching and life-giving words directly from the Bible into your life. We want to help bring reconciliation to people everywhere because we have learned personally that we miss out when we don’t believe God.

We believe that you were made to thrive, not just survive. You were made to overcome, not barely make it. You were made to be more than a conqueror, not to be defeated. You were made for abundant life, not just mere existence. You were made to be a blessing, not just be blessed.

Our prayer is that you partner with us on this journey of knowing the Father. It’s exciting, life-giving, and pure joy to know that you are loved, made for a purpose, and always with His help. If you are not yet a believer, do not be discouraged. Jesus died for the sins of the WHOLE WORLD, and that INCLUDES YOU!  We would love to pray with you and get you started on the truth of God’s word.

Remember, He promised that He will always be with us, even through the end of the ages!
