[…with an everlasting love]
Last night I was having one of those moments when I feel totally lost, uncertain whether I’m doing anything right, buffeted by the waves and hesitant to speak (write) another word. I was praying, “Lord, I don’t know what I’m doing…” I was feeling pretty sunk.
There was a song that I’d heard earlier that day that I’d found soothing, so I grabbed my tablet to see if I could find it. When I tried to bring my YouTube app up it wouldn’t open completely. It was just a white screen with the red play button logo. I closed the app and tried again. I had the same problem. For some reason I tapped on my screen. (Impatience… wishful thinking that tapping would do the trick?) Unexpectedly a song began to play. The screen was still white with the red play logo, but I listened not knowing what song I was hearing.
It wasn’t the song that I’d wanted to hear. It wasn’t even a song that I knew, but it was the song that I needed to hear. Maybe you need this reminder also.
This week hasn’t been all bad. It started off very rough, and throughout the weak those metaphorical waves rose and fell, but it will end with thankfulness and rest. I know that I am loved.
Praise the Lord for His everlasting love and unfailing kindness. ❤
Music that Speaks
“Some went out on the sea in ships; they were merchants on the mighty waters. They saw the works of the LORD, His wonderful deeds in the deep. For He spoke and stirred up a tempest that lifted high the waves. They mounted up to the heavens and went down to the depths; in their peril their courage melted away. They reeled and staggered like drunkards; they were at their wits’ end. Then they cried out to the LORD in their trouble, and He brought them out of their distress. He stilled the storm to a whisper; the waves of the sea were hushed. They were glad when it grew calm, and He guided them to their desired haven. Let them give thanks to the LORD for His unfailing love and His wonderful deeds for mankind. Let them exalt Him in the assembly of the people and praise Him in the council of the elders.” –Psalm 107: 23-32
The LORD appeared to us in the past, saying: “I have loved you with an everlasting love; I have drawn you with unfailing kindness. –Jeremiah 31:3
