An Evening With Dean Martin

The Lord has blessed me with a lot of free time this summer to just do nothing. With absolutely nothing to do this evening, I turned on Pandora on my laptop to my Dean Martin station and began to write a letter my good friend, Callie (we decided to become old-fashion pen pals this summer! Haha!).  Listening to Dean Martin and others like him, I thought about how music was so different back then. So many of the songs possess this breezy quality that one doesn’t often find in music today, and the songs are absolutely captivating. The music possesses this effortless elegance much like Audrey Hepburn does in almost all of her roles (so jealous), and I love it. As I was writing my letter I had this sudden urge to read my bible. I’m sad to admit that I very rarely read my bible just because I feel like it. I usually only read it when I do my quiet times. Anyway, I love when I am reading God’s word and he reveals something to me that I never thought about before…
“For great is your love, higher than the heavens; your faithfulness reaches to the skies.” –Psalm 108:4
I have heard and read this verse and verses like it many, many times before, but for whatever the reason it really impacted me today. His love is, “higher than the heavens.” How high are the heavens anyway? I have no idea, but it is higher than I could ever imagine. This is how much God loves me; more than I could ever imagine. Wow! I do not know why he chooses to love someone like me, but he does. And like the music I am listening to, his love for me absolutely captivates me.
