Why is it Lord, that when I look back at those rare, precious times that I've met You and Your Love "with skin-on" , when I got to see, feel and experience Your Love in an up close, real, visceral way... Why is it that I find myself unexplainably tearful?
Those precious people have come and gone, but Your Love Lord,
IT still remains.
Why is it though, that I'm tearful?
I don't think it's because I miss those people. (although I really do)
I think it has more to do with knowing that You Lord have allready resolved to do a good work in me,
and that You will see it through.
Why though am I tearful?
I think its because You are teaching me that instead of me just wanting to experience You again, in that magnificently manifest way, I HAVE TO become Your Love myself in my own,
YOU inspired way.
I know that I often fail to be that selfless Love in those split-second choices that I encounter in my head...
a lost chance for
conscious effort to
BE YOUR LOVE,
that "skin-on" YOU
Why is it that I'm tearful ?
I don't think it's a fear that You won't see this Great work through. For perfect Love casts out all fear.
I think it has something to do with my lament for missing the blessed oportunity
to show to others that same undeserved Love
that You have shown to me.
Why is it that I'm tearful?
When I think about others being able to experience Your Love through ME
in that same most Gracious way,
I think MY heart is drawing closer to YOUR HEART, and this time I'm experiencing You again right here and now in another Glorious way!
Getting THIS tiny glimpe of the work You began in me...YOUR solid, Loving Resolution...
I know NOW that THIS is why I cry.
