My Everlasting Father

“even as he chose us in him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and blameless before him. In love he predestined us for adoption to himself as sons through Jesus Christ, according to the purpose of his will”
— Ephesians 1:4-5
In ages past,
Eternal love took wing and flew
Determined through creation, time, and space
To me.
In grace, he flew deep in my heart,
And with unfaltering, happy voice
He called me “Child.”
