Songs of many different cultures refresh my soul.
Yesterday, I shared the refrain to a Vietnamese songcalled "Bao La Tinh Chua".
Each line in the refrain seemed rich with abundant life
as I sat and pondered it, so I want to sip each with you.
The first line of refrain begins with--Almighty God--
need I go any further yet?
What does it mean to be Almighty?
God, who created everything, is called the Father Almighty.
First, He loves us and so created everything for us.
Additionally, He rules everything and can do everything, and
ultimately, "nothing will be impossible with God." Lk 1:37
When I personalize this and believe firmly, as I suggest is a good practice, I say to myself--God is my loving Father and I am his adoring daughter. He created me, loves me, cares for me, provides for me, converts me, restores me, and refreshes me daily.
He is a universal Father meaning he's created everyone everywhere,
and will do the same for each of us as we firmly believe
in His almighty love and power.
