How Deep and How Wide is Love?

“Did you know this house is falling apart, what can I say this house is falling apart? We got no money, but e got heart. We’re going to rattle this ghost town!”

~How Deep and How Wide is Love?~

The gap is closing.
The opportunity is falling all around me.
My chance at redemption is slipping through my fingers.
My courage is wavering and my resolve is weakening.

“Today is my day.” I said.
Then the day came and the day went.
I was told to go, to jump, and to land.
I was told I could move a mountain.

“This week is my week.” I said.
Then the week came and the week went.
I told myself that I would make up for not seizing the other day.
I told myself I could do it my way.

I was thinking that my strength was enough.
I was thinking that by my hands I could be healed.
I was thinking I would rely in myself with skyscraper faith..
I was thinking about doing something better.

The gap closed.
The opportunity fell around me.
My chance at redemption slipped through my fingers.
My courage wavered and my resolve died.

Perspective and reliance comes from hindsight.
Looking back and seeing the failures of a child.
Looking back and remembering how I came into being in the first place.
Perspective is a mirror that can see what should have been.
How deep and how wide is the love?
I should of found out.

  1. Oh, Matt, that is beautiful. I understand about past mistakes. God is loving and delivers us from our mistakes. Jehoshaphat was delivered in a battle he shouldn't haven't entered with Ahab, I read this morning with a commentary that I hadn't heard before. 2 Chronicles 18. Not to get preachy on you!
