Learning to Be a Child, 4.

You're not just a child, you're My child.
So cry, but cry out, "Abba! Father!"

For you did not receive the spirit of slavery to fall back into fear,
but you have received the Spirit of adoption as sons,
by whom we cry, "Abba! Father!"
Romans 8.15
Cry, but cry out, "Mercy!"
Father, if you are willing, remove this cup from me.
Nevertheless, not my will, but yours be done.
Luke 22.42
Mercy comes running,
because the Son became an orphan,
for you. For me.
When all cries to silence come, listen:
Child, He groans out for [not against] you!

Because you are sons,
God has sent the Spirit of his Son into our hearts,
crying, "Abba! Father!"
So you are no longer a slave, but a son,
and if a son, then an heir through God.
Galatians 4.6
This is the bold unbrazen approach.
This is welcome not presumption.

When I am faithless, he remains faithful,
I am His child.
