The One True God

Lately, I've felt sort of distanced from God. And I know that part of the problem is I've allowed other people and what they think to come between me and God. I've let some of the hurts other people have caused me to get in the way. I've let some of my expectations of things get in the way. I've let my emotions get in the way.

I heard this song the other day on K-Love and it's been on my mind ever since. And I can't help but think it was God's way of telling me to put aside everything else and come back to him. I'm trying, but I'm finding it really hard to do. There are a lot of hurts that need healing, and a lot of wrongs that need righting.

Please listen to this song. It's called One True God, by Mark Harris. I hope you enjoy and can find meaning from it as well.

There's only one true God. Focus on Him, because nothing else matters more. Everything else will just lead you astray.

Brandon, thanks. I enjoyed this thought today too. Sometimes I feel so lonely and full of holes and I think about how things are meant to be and I weep inside at the loss of the Good in my life, in the world. And today I remembered what I do have - God Himself, and I realized that all of my gaping holes are spaces that God will eventually fill with Himself. It made me stop wanting other things. He is the One I want. It comforts me to realize that I really do love Him more than all of the other things I think would make me whole, and that He WILL make me whole.

To think I get wanting so little, when there is God to long for.

Jim, you're welcome. I'm glad you liked.

Jennypo, I liked your last sentence "To think I get wanting so little, when there is God to long for." That's what God does for us. He fills us so full of himself that we want nothing else. God bless, and keep up the good fight. :)
