Recently, I found myself in an oddly depressive state. It was so bad that while on the phone with a very close friend that’s practically yelling at me to speak who & what God, I somehow was running blank and began to weep so hard. I haven’t sobbed so hard in years.
I believe I started crying harder not only because I felt lost but because I know that God loves us all. My Father love me so much and at that moment I couldn’t even speak. I know Him and love Him. I deny myself and choose to carry the cross and for some reason, I couldn’t even speak when told to speak who He is to me.
Later that night, I pulled myself to listen to a song that had been placed upon my heart a few times during this situation:Good Good Father by Chris Tomlin. I knew the majority of the lyrics but what completely crushed that spirit of depression was at the very end of the song. In between the usual You’re a Good Good Father & Its who You are, he adds
You are PERFECT in all of your ways
. And I don’t know why that 1 phrase lifted me 100% but that was the only thing that made me get up and praise the Almighty.
Perfect implies having no mistake or flaw. It means the soundness and the excellence of every part, element or quality of any and everything and that He is entirely without flaw or defect.
Our Lord is entirely perfect. His ideas, His will, His Love, His faithfulness, He is entirely perfect and I thank Him in the midst of what may seem a little foggy, but I know that His will is perfect and how can one argue or want anything other than perfect?
