Mellifiluous – Not the answer… it’s the assignment!

Posted: October 8, 2010 in Mellifluous

i can’t just move on regarding this thing called love. See i learned early on that while love could be defined by my parents as clothes on my back, food in my stomach and a roof over my head, it doesn’t work at all in any other circumstance. It’s not anyone elses responsibility to provide those things for me. But using my parents definition of love, it left me without any… so i thought. my next step was to come to the place where i didn’t need anyone, because i provided those elements for myself. Since then it has taken many years to overcome that. i have said before that when i got saved it was from me and my independence from anyone else including God. i thought at that time, i was doing just fine on my own. Psalm 103:6 has stuck with me so i must spend another day on this song and for this person, but it’s probably more for me than them. i think at this moment i am going to dissect the verse.

Psalm 103:6
God makes everything come out right; ( i believe that even though it doesn’t look like it and certainly doesn’t always feel like it.) he puts victims back on their feet. (i believe that as well but my struggle comes with the timing. While i know it’s not it does seem to be late.) He showed Moses how he went about his work, opened up his plans to all Israel. God is sheer mercy and grace; not easily angered, HE’S RICH IN LOVE. (That’s a very good thing but i’m not sure i fully comprehend just how rich in love He is. In fact i’m sure i don’t.) He doesn’t endlessly nag and scold, nor hold grudges forever. He doesn’t treat us as our sins deserve, nor pay us back in full for our wrongs. As high as heaven is over the earth, so strong is his love to those who fear him. And as far as sunrise is from sunset, he has separated us from our sins. As parents feel for their children, God feels for those who fear him. He knows us inside and out, keeps in mind that we’re made of mud. Men and women don’t live very long; like wildflowers they spring up and blossom, But a storm snuffs them out just as quickly, leaving nothing to show they were here. God’s love, though, is ever and always, eternally present to all who fear him, Making everything right for them and their children as they follow his Covenant ways and remember to do whatever he said.

i stopped dissecting because… to many words! What can i add to what has already be written. It’s clear and precise. i can live with this verse as a definition for what my loving others should look like. i am in no way saying it is easy but at least it gives me a goal to work toward. As Paul said, “I press toward the mark.”

01 – Your Love Is Strong
