I've sort of wrestled all afternoon with the fact that I'm disappointed...feeling like I shouldn't be. Silly woman. Has God ever said anything other than, "Come unto me..."? No disclaimer. No, "get your act together" and then come. No shame. NO SHAME. Ever. Just come.
So I come. And find rest. I come and discover that He's not disappointed in me for feeling sad. He's just full of love. Love that's bigger than our prairie skies. Deeper than the ocean. It's a Love so huge that it invites trust.
Your unfailing love, O Lord, is as vast as the heavens;
Your faithfulness reaches beyond the clouds.
Your righteousness is like the mighty mountains,
your justice like the ocean depths...
How precious is your unfailing love, O God!
All humanity finds shelter in the shadow of your wings.
