First Name Basis- Abba, Yahweh, Yahushua

First Name Basis- Abba, Yahweh, Yahushua

I love You, Yahweh,
I can easily say.
A slight hesitation,
but thoughts array.

But to say
“I love You, Yahushua,”
is to fall short in my mind.
To Him, I have not truly knelt
in the past, I’ve been quite blind.

You, Abba,
cause my heart to beat.
You move my hands,
move my feet.

But to truly know Yahushua
I fall short.
A shamefaced truth,
no more ignored.

Abba, open my eyes
to softly say,
“I love You, Yahushua,
with You, I remain.”

I know You love me,
that I don’t doubt.
It is me I fault,
and this heart without.

I am hungry, Yahushua,
to know you more.
This ache in me
is a wound, a sore.

Reveal to me
my lack of love for You.
No longer let confusion sit
Between the three or two.

I trust You as Master
and Savior of my soul.
No longer let first name basis
hold nervousness untold.

There is a riddle here,
Of that I am sure.
A parable to decipher,
from wrong to pure

teach me about who Yahushua really is.
You as Him,
and He my hope that lives.

It is an oddity,
a thing of great concern.
For, “I love You, Yahushua,”
my heart doth yearn.

To say it, feel it, show it true.
to be an inseparable part of You.

So I pray to You ,
oh, He, who’s divine.
Come to me soon,
Let it be my time.

To know You truly,
to solve the puzzle.
No longer, heart
of mine, be muzzled!

For You alone
know the key to my heart.
Unlock that door,
Throw back the bar!

Come fully in
my Dearest Shalom
Oh, cup of mine,
Strength and Calm

Proverbs 30:4 “Who has gone up to the heavens and come down? Who has gathered the wind in His Fists? Who has bound the waters in a garment? Who established all the ends of the earth? What is His Name. And what is His Son’s Name, if you know it?”

Have you ever hesitated at using the name “Jesus?” Try using Yahushua instead. Look online why names are important.

I also have a poem called, “Why, Jesus?” which I am going to edit to further show my convictions. It’s not too late today to change your own.

This poem can be found in the book, “He Had You at Belief: A Collection of Christian Poetry” (It has been edited since publication)
