Not enough words

Filed under: Uncategorized — andykiff @ 10:21 pm

Psalm 106:2  Who can utter the mighty deeds of the Lord,
or declare all his praise?

It’s so easy to feel overwhelmed with the pressures of life sometimes.  How much better to be overwhelmed with Your greatness.  The psalmist raises the rhetorical question here of whether anyone can really say how great You are or give You the praise You deserve.  The answer, simply, is no.  If everyone who has ever lived spent every waking moment telling how amazing You are and shouting out Your praise, it wouldn’t even come close to scratching the surface of the reality.  There’s no way I could ever give You what You deserve.

But I’m going to adopt the same attitude as the psalmist here.  It’s an impossible task but I’m not going to let that stop me.  If it was just a task then I’d have every reason to give up but praising You is the best way to spend my life.  And if at the end of my life I’ve barely begun to understand the full measure of Your love it won’t have been a wasted effort.  The journey will be worth every step.
