Love Unending....

 Psalm 103

The Love of God
Praise the Lord, my soul!
      All my being, praise his holy name!
 2 Praise the Lord, my soul,
      and do not forget how kind he is.
 3 He forgives all my sins
      and heals all my diseases.
 4 He keeps me from the grave
      and blesses me with love and mercy.
 5 He fills my life with good things,
      so that I stay young and strong like an eagle.
 6 The Lord judges in favor of the oppressed
      and gives them their rights.
 7 He revealed his plans to Moses
      and let the people of Israel see his mighty deeds.
 8 The Lord is merciful and loving,
      slow to become angry and full of constant love.
 9 He does not keep on rebuking;
      he is not angry forever.
 10 He does not punish us as we deserve
      or repay us according to our sins and wrongs.
 11 As high as the sky is above the earth,
      so great is his love for those who honor him.
 12 As far as the east is from the west,
      so far does he remove our sins from us.
 13 As a father is kind to his children,
      so the Lord is kind to those who honor him.
 14 He knows what we are made of;
      he remembers that we are dust.
 15 As for us, our life is like grass.
   We grow and flourish like a wild flower;
    16 then the wind blows on it, and it is gone
      no one sees it again.
 17 But for those who honor the Lord, his love lasts forever,
      and his goodness endures for all generations
 18 of those who are true to his covenant
      and who faithfully obey his commands.
 19 The Lord placed his throne in heaven;
      he is king over all.
 20 Praise the Lord, you strong and mighty angels,
      who obey his commands,
      who listen to what he says.
 21 Praise the Lord, all you heavenly powers,
      you servants of his, who do his will!
 22 Praise the Lord, all his creatures
      in all the places he rules.
   Praise the Lord, my soul!

In His Car

.....He pulled over and motioned that I could take a seat at the back of His cabin pickup. I got in and oh! how dark it was....save for two small windows that sneaked in shy beams of the setting sun....

...made myself comfortable on the bench seat that was secured at the end of the cabin. We hit a rough road...gripped the rails for balance.

..." Does He know where I am going?".....The make of His car was Datsun...for some reason, this one lacked the small front window that allows passengers to see the driver....

It got dark. I couldn't see anything outside. It was a country road...not much traffic.

We hit rough terrain again....then smooth....

..."Do I know where He is going?''.....

It didn't matter...I wasn't driving, He was...He didn't ask where I was going...so I guess, I'll go where He is going.

....and I am not afraid.

Here is my praise...

Dear God,

2 hours later...here I am.

I've looked through psalms, to get words to praise you....and I haven't found what I'd like to say....I thought of Job...but my situation is different from his....so his words won't do...shuffled all the praise songs in my head...but none quite tell it as I want to....

See, am sort of sad....overwhelmed in my heart.....there is so much going round....half of which I do not understand...the other half which I think I do...isn't rosy.

My heart wants to praise....to expel its bottled feelings,...my mind tells me....praise will lift my burdens....logical I guess...my body tells me...I need a hug....a long one...with no words.....my spirit wants me to come up with ten counts of praise....

1. Its my mum's 60th birthday - thank you for her life and that you chose her to be my mum, she is really wonderful.

2. Thank you for the demio ....the second of my seven answered.

3. Its been raining lots lately...the cold makes sleeping so enjoyable...

4. Thank you for the knowledge that when all is said and done...You always win...it keeps my head up.

5. I praise You that You can see our souls....sometimes words are hard to come by....(like now)....yet You know what it is I desire to say.....(it reduces the pressure to express oneself - thank you for this)

6. For grace....because You have revealed my trespasses by rebuking me with your word...had I been born in the old testament days....they'd have put burning coals on my lips.

7. For Cadbury's S.M.S chocolate...it really tastes so gooood....and makes me sooo happy. ( the cocoa bean is a great creation!)

8. That you'll take time to read this.....

9. For my country - You are our peace...and as we tread upon troubled waters...You will guide us safely.

10. For the church - that Jesus, you REIGN....and no weapon fashioned against her will prosper!

....now, my heart, mind, body and spirit want to keep still.....on the staircase.

Much love,

Me.
