Endless is Your Love

~Tom Kendzia

You know my heart. You know my mind.

You know my words..long before I speak them.

There is no place that I can hide.

Endless is Your love for us.

Surely there’s a place, even You don’t know.

    If I can climb there, if I fly there, can I hide from you?

Can’t I hide at night, darkness by my light?

    Can you see the day in darkness,

    Can you find me there?

Wonderful Your works, countless as the sand.

     Earth and Heaven know Your beauty,

     Fashioned by Your hand.

      I have always had a fascination with lighthouses. These magnificent beacons of hope and light guide travelers safely to shore every night. Some of them have fallen into disrepair and are idle. Others have solar-charged battery-powered lights and are maintained by the U S Coast Guard.

     Originally, the source of the light was fueled by open flames, then candles, then whale oil, kerosene and finally the electric light. The lenses were rotated by a weight-driven clock wound by the Lighthouse Keeper. The Fresnel lens focused 85% of the light but has now been replaced by rotating aerobeams similar to obstruction lights.

     The words of the hymn above remind me of the way that God shines His light and Truth into our lives so that we can see clearly the things He wants to change in us. Sometimes we are stubborn and don’t want to change. Sometimes we are ashamed and try to hide our sins so deep that we sometimes forget them. When I “hear’ the words to the hymn above echo in my heart, I go to Him in prayer. His arms open wide and I am enveloped in His love and forgiveness. His light shines out and covers me and leads me to His dwelling place.

Light always follows darkness

….and once the storm is over you won’t remember how you made it through,

how you managed to survive. You won’t even be sure, in fact, whether the

storm is really over. But one thing is certain. When you come out of the storm

you won’t be the same person who walked in. That’s what this storm’s all about.
