Songs in the Morning
Let me hear in the morning of your steadfast love. (Ps. 143:8)
I keep coming back to this verse because it’s been the cry of my heart for a couple of weeks. I need to hear every day that He loves. Not only that He loves, but that it is steadfast. It’s not going anywhere.
If we are faithless, He will remain faithful for he cannot disown himself. (2 Tim 2:13) no matter what we have done, we can not out-sin the merciful gift of Christ. Not that we should give up and sin in spite of the precious gift, (Rom 6:1) but that in gratitude and praise we should no longer be bound in sorrow to the weight of our burdens.
I need so often to return to the Cross at the side of the Narrow Way, and like little Pilgrim feel my burden bound back down the hill, mine no longer to bear. Hallelujah.
