Love anyway

Father God.
Loving Father God.
There is a lot of work in this place to do, and "I can do all things through Christ Who strengthens me," but you know what...

"You see my limitations, but
You call me anyway...
You know that which I cannot do
but unto me You say
"Take heart, my child, for there are things
designed for you alone;
and by your hand upon those works
My glory shall be known!"

For there are things I cannot do,
but God, You are aware,
and You makes sure that, in Your kingdom,
I am given share!
You see me not as "handicapped,"
or 'labels' of this place;
You make for me exceptions by
Your treasury of grace!

Mercy.  Grace and mercy.
And that of only You!
You set me at Your very table!
God, Your love is true!!
You see unto our wants and needs,
abundantly You bless.
You see my life in Christ and say
"You are my righteousness!"

Loving Father God.
Too often, He is seen as the watchdog in the sky poised and ready to pounce as soon as we screw up.  Nothing could be further from the truth!  When you love someone it helps you understand them.  And God loves you...even if there are things wrong that no one else understands.
