When it all comes too close to home, despite truth that steadies us, our hearts still race, our minds still scramble to understand … and the most tragic of all attacks lurks … to doubt the LORD’s love for us.
We are tempted to think He is busy orchestrating something eternally important and one day we will understand what we can’t reason right now … what if, instead, this is the time He wants to come closer than ever to tenderly care for us? in ways that are unmistakeably His doing? what if He wants us to recognize His whispers to our hearts, to give us a new reality in which to walk from this day forward?
Today, on my run, I felt like He met me right there in the middle of that fresh wrestle … to allow Chris Tomlin’s song to remind me: nobody loves me like Him!!!!
“Morning, I see You in the sunrise every morning
It’s like a picture that You’ve painted for me
A love letter in the sky
Story, I could’ve had a really different story
But You came down from heaven to restore me
Forever saved my life
. . .
Mountains, You’re breaking down the weight
of all my mountains
Even when it feels like I’m surrounded
You never leave my side, oh oh oh
. . .
Nobody loves me like You love me, JESUS
I stand in awe of Your amazing ways
I worship You as long as I am breathing
GOD, You are faithful and true
Nobody loves me like You”
“For GOD so loved the world that He gave His only beloved Son, that whosoever believes in Him shall not perish but have everlasting life.” John 3:16
