How He Loves

Matthew, I have another song for you. God really speaks to me through music,as I've told you. A lot of times I keep hearing songs over and over on the radio and finally I'll sit down and really listen to them and hear what God is trying to tell me. Well that's how this song is/was for me. For two weeks every time I turned around I heard this song. Finally I sat down and looked up the words and really listened to it. I think God knows what I need to hear and be reminded of at different times in my life. The song I shared with you last week had a strong message of hope and that is what I desperately needed, and still do. This one reminds me of God's love. I didn't think I really needed to be reminded of that until this weekend when I really listened to the words. It is so easy to think of love in human terms, the way humans love. But God's love isn't like that. His love is different than anything we will ever know on earth. We can try to imitate His love, and are commissioned to do so. "A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another." (John 13:34) But God's love is the greatest of all. And he doesn't love the way many humans do. That is what I needed to be reminded of. What does this song remind you of? Here are the words, "How He Loves", by David Crowder Band.

He is jealous for me,
Loves like a hurricane, I am a tree,
Bending beneath the weight of his wind and mercy.
When all of a sudden,
I am unaware of these afflictions eclipsed by glory,
And I realize just how beautiful You are,
And how great Your affections are for me.

And oh, how He loves us so,
Oh how He loves us,
How He loves us all

Yeah, He loves us,
Oh! how He loves us,

Oh! how He loves us,
Oh! how He loves.

We are His portion and He is our prize,
Drawn to redemption by the grace in His eyes,
If His grace is an ocean, we?re all sinking.
And Heaven meets earth like an unforeseen kiss,
And my heart turns violently inside of my chest,
I don?t have time to maintain these regrets,
When I think about, the way?
