by Carol Edwards
I feel like Peter so often my silence louder than the emphatic “No,” he uttered by the fire. Carol, do you love Me? Lord, You know I love you. There is comfort in the omniscience of God – He sees the worst in me what I try to hide from Him in fancy words and self-righteous airs and isn’t fazed, His love unchanged; He also sees the best in me – Himself – which He put there, so my faith will never fail though my thoughts and energy and priorities do daily. Carol, do you love Me? Lord, You know all things, and past the flesh corrupted that so often wins, embedded small as a mustard seed You know I love You.
