Could we with ink the ocean fill
And were the skies of parchment made
Were every stalk on earth a quill
And every man a scribe by trade
To write the love of God above
Would drain the ocean dry
Nor could the scroll contain the whole
Though stretched from sky to sky
O Love of God, how rich and pure
How marvelous and strong
It shall forever more endure
The saints and angels song

How do you explain Love
who’s never known
nor seen it?
How do you explain Love
hearts bent to
How do you explain love
to find it?
“This is real love–not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as a sacrifice to take away our sins”—1 John 4:10 NLB
“You will seek Me and find Me when you search for Me with all your heart”—Jeremiah 29:13 NASB
“No one has seen God at any time; the only begotten God who is in the bosom of the Father, He has explained Him”—John 1:18 NAS
Even in darkest night-time,
When eyes are bereft of light…
The One who sees and knows all
Still gives songs in the night.
The LORD, your God, is in your midst, a warrior who gives victory; he will rejoice over you with gladness, he will renew you in his love; he will exult over you with loud singing. (Zephaniah 3: 17 RSV)
My heart goes out to my sister Cathy, who is grieving the loss of her precious daughter Carrie, who went home to heaven the day after Christmas.
Cathy, you are ever in my prayers and my heart, and never far from my mind these days.
I pray these thoughts will be a source of encouragement to you today. May you hear new songs in the night as you rest on the eternal promises of God and live in the resurrection hope of Jesus. We will see Carrie again.
I know there are many others who also grieve the loss of loved ones right now. May God give you an abundance of comfort and may you too hear songs in the night.
Weeping may endure for the night, but Joy comes in the morning.
