OUR BOUNDARIES FOR LOVE 10/17/04
You are the God that settles all accounts.
Not phased by degree or any amount.
There is nothing that You can not do.
When we yield and become dead too.
In time we will see Your justice and truth
Defend your bride who was sent uncouth.
Vessels of honor and vessels of shame
Are glory in Your house, used just the same.
It is only in the minds and hearts of man
To see a distinction between the span.
Men wash their cups and their platters.
Tis not the shell but the heart that matters.
These frames are weak and return to dust.
What matters to Him is absolutely a must.
He tests and measures our boundaries for love
Sending the dishonored as gifts from His dove.
We push and shove and wrestle with them
But when it is God we will not win.
Our mind-sets, offsets and all sets crumble
As He breaks our hearts to become humble.
And when it is over and the unlovely are removed,
Will we rejoice or will we be moved
To press in closer to remove the distance,
To knock on their door to gain entrance?
For when we are loved by the unlovely in deed.
We find our missing piece, we find what we need.
And when it is gone we are left alone.
To think and chew and spit out our bones.
Rom 9:19-21 NKJV
You will say to me then, "Why does He still find
fault? For who has resisted His will?" But indeed, O
man, who are you to reply against God?
Will the thing formed say to him who formed it, "Why
have you made me like this?" Does not the potter have
power over the clay, from the same lump to make one
vessel for honor and another for dishonor?
