I will never fully comprehend the love of my Heavenly Father. I am one of the most imperfect people ever!
Over the past year and a half, I’ve learned so much about how much He really does care about every little detail of life. In the words of Inigo, “Let me ‘splain. No there is too much. Let me sum up.” Simply, I am a compulsive complainer. Give me a reason, I will complain. Let me know feel well, I do expect pity. Childish right? God is growing me in this area, because He loves me so much. The past few days have been really difficult. Allergy season is rearing it’s unwelcome head, and I’ve been miserable. Yes, I may mention not feeling well, but I’ve notice, I haven’t dwelt on it. God has given me strength to put on a happy face, not focus on my discomfort, and put others and HIM first. By all means, I haven’t been perfect. I’m sure I can (and do) still share too much, but my patient Father is lovingly growing me still.
Sing with me…”He still working on me, to make me what I ought to be. It took Him just a week to make the moon and the stars, the sun and the earth and Jupiter and Mars. How loving and patient He must be. He’s still working on me.” (Now smile and remember VBS as a kid.)
In scripture, Paul refers to himself as the chief of sinners. I’m sure I could give him a run for his money. Thankfully, like Paul, I am a recipient of God’s amazing grace and love.
How about a more grown-up song about the great love of God? Enjoy!
