Psalm 13:5 (New International Version)
5 But I trust in your unfailing love; my heart rejoices in your salvation.
I make Rods coffee every morning and sometimes I leave him a note there so he will see it on his way to work. After 6 years of marriage it is only because of Gods grace that we are still together!! We would have given up real quick if it weren't for hope. I mean that from both sides!!
Anyway, here is the note I left him this morning! Sometimes I am afraid to step out and show my love toward others for fear that I may have to change my mind based on their actions. Isn't that awful!!!
Just trying to keep it real. LOL
He wrote me a little note at the bottom which he gets points for effort! I loved how he signed his name or I may think it was another man in my house loving me too!! j/k
Aren't you glad the Lords love is unfailing no matter what? I have really been thinking on the attributes of God and how self-sufficient He is. He never had a beginning point or will He ever end. He needs no one and nothing to be God. He does not even need glory from us (to still be God) because He created us out of sheer delight and manifested His glory to a lost world. He doesn't change because of anything we do or don't do. He is upholding this earth by His very word right now. As the sun burns out and the world continues turning on its axis, God is completely separate and unhindered in being God. One might ask: when did you begin God? He never did. He always has existed. There is no such thing as limitations or time to Him. The heavens are majestic and glorious and beyond our wildest imaginations, yet He spoke and they came into being. HE SPOKE and the wonders of this earth and sky came into being. He will never be any more God or any less God. He existed before the heavens and the earth. Before us. What in the world did that look like? What in the world...it almost makes my finite mind freak out and panic. No one even knows the depths of the earth...no one has ever been to the greatest depths of the sea...but He created them and is everywhere all of the time. BLOWS me away! What small thoughts I have had of our creator God. How caught up in mundane living and blinded by the false gods of this world I have become at times. He is so worthy and I am not. What is man that you are mindful of him Lord? No one has ever given to Him that He should repay. Who has ever given Him counsel? He is wisdom. Great, deep, wide, unfathomable wisdom. And He invites the thirsty to come. He sees Christ in those who are His Children. We are heirs and co-heirs with Christ. How could it be?
