What Waters Cannot Quench
My brother, a student at a respected Bible college, and I got to talking over the weekend about God and Japan. God and disaster. God and bad things happening. We debated: "does God cause disaster or allow disaster?" The age old question. I quoted Nahum 1 and emphasized God's righteousness and zeal; he argued Job and God's love.
But for a year... or even longer, now... this one phrase from Song of Solomon won't let me go: that many waters cannot quench love.
Over the weekend I pulled out pictures I took took sailing the Gulf of Mexico three years ago, thought about that verse, and listened to this song. I love this song.
And the words are still with me this morning...
