- 1 Samuel 26:6 – “Who will volunteer to go in there with me?” David asked Ahimelech the Hittite and Abishai son of Zeruiah, Joab’s brother. “I’ll go with you,” Abishai replied.
- 1 Samuel 26:8 – “God has surely handed your enemy over to you this time!” Abishai whispered to David. “Let me pin him to the ground with one thrust of the spear; I won’t need to strike twice!
- 2 Samuel 16:9 – “Why should this dead dog curse my lord the king?” Abishai son of Zeruiah demanded. “Let me go over and cut off his head!”
Please join us in praying that Abishai Steven might embody these traits himself, as he grows and serves the Father. And that he might one day receive a crown rewarded him by his maker.
To our little Abishai,
The news of your arrival was a complete shock and surprise but we are already in love and cannot imagine this life without you. I am grateful that even though I dug my heels in and arrived here only with kicking and screaming (and some moments of surrender and glimmers of hope), God chooses to bless us and gives us what we do not deserve.
Abishai, you are already a fighter and we pray God grows you to be His warrior. This world is only temporary but we pray your stay finds His peace, joy, and abundant love.
Welcome to the crazy wonderful chaos that is the Engstrom family little boy!
