His Love Endures For Ever

March 14, 2012 § Leave a comment

“Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good; his love endures for ever… give thanks to the Lord for his unfailing love and his wonderful deeds for men” (Psalm 107:1, 21).  After all are said and done, only one thing remains… the love of God.  That is the promise we live by.  That is especially the promise we hold on to when we fail and get desperate, when we are overwhelmed by the forceful nature of darkness and destruction.  As Walter Brueggemann prays, “The night of defeat is long and still and unbearable.  We know the nights.  And our sisters and brothers who are cold, and hungry, and brutalized know them better than do we.  Then you in the morning.  You only.  You in splendor.  You in glory.  You in power.  (And I will add, ‘You in love’).  This day we dazzle at your glory in the midst of our long night.”
