His Love is the Answer

Why am I discouraged?

Why is my heart so sad?

Each day the Lord pours 
His unfailing love upon me.   
Psalm 42:5,6
The unfailing love of God 
answers every question. 
When I don't have the answers, 
I can choose to trust Him. 
Through the years, my life 
has proven Him faithful.
He can do no other.
His name is LOVE.
His name is not like ours,
but a name that describes, designates
and defines His very essence.
When I question my purpose,
my choices, my decisions, my value,
my gifting, my ability, my future, my...
His love is my answer.
He says to me, 
I am love and 
you are the object of that love.
The end.

The psalmist honestly describes himself
as feeling discouraged and sad.
These feelings may temporarily describe us;
they are only wrong if we let them define us.
He concludes with "I will put my hope in God."
He repeats it all over again in Psalm 43.

Sometimes our doubts keep cropping up
and our declarations need repetition.
I can think to myself, "Why don't I just get this?"
And I look to the psalms.
They didn't always just get it either.
But they always found their answer in HIm.
The unfailing love of the Lord
is the answer to my every question.
Today is yet another day to 
prove Him trustworthy.
The steadfast love of the Lord
never ceases.
