Kind

Written by Dallas Pepper on March 5th, 2016.

Like many people I did not grow up with a good male figure and that has made it easy for false ideas about who God is to sneak in. Today I'm just going to let Amanda Cook do the talking, or singing actually.

You are not a tyrant King
You do not delight in suffering
Your power doesn't compensate for insecurity
‘Cause You are not a tyrant King
You are kind

You are not an angry man
You do not treat us with contempt
Your voice is sure, Your eyes are soft, Your smile, confident
‘Cause You are not an angry man
You are kind

Your love is a fury all its own
Sweeping the dust and turning feet towards home
Carrying the orphans and resetting broken bones
Your love is a fury all its own
You are kind

And love is powerful enough
Without the fear of punishment
"Kind" Amanda Cook

Verses:

But You are a God of forgiveness, Gracious and compassionate, Slow to anger and abounding in lovingkindness; And You did not forsake them. - Nehemiah 9:17B

The LORD appeared to him from afar, saying, "I have loved you with an everlasting love; Therefore I have drawn you with lovingkindness. - Jeremiah 31:3

You, O LORD, will not withhold Your compassion from me; Your lovingkindness and Your truth will continually preserve me. - Psalm 40:11
