I LOVE YOU LORD by Elevation Worship

A love that will not let me go, my soul will rest in you alone.
I give you back this life I owe, to know you Jesus more and more.

I was reading Jarrid Wilson’s blog post entitled “YOUR SCARS ARE PROOF THAT GOD HEALS” while listening to Elevation Worship’s Wake Up The Wonder album. Suddenly, an inexplicable feeling of joy and gratefulness flooded my heart, as if someone whispered to me “Child, just so you know, I love you so.”

The simple yet very profound truth about God’s amazing grace still amazes me up until this very moment. Of why He loves me still in spite of my shortcomings. Of why He still cares about me even though I constantly turn my back from Him. Of how overwhelmingly patient He is despite the fact that I frustrate Him repeatedly. Never could I comprehend God’s love and mercy. Truly His compassion knows no bound. His love goes beyond just feelings and transforms me from within. I would not be here today if not for His unfailing love.

I’d like to quote Jarrid Wilson on what he said about mistakes and weaknesses: “I’m not proud of my past, but I wear my scars on my sleeve because I am proud of who I’ve become in Christ. These scars remind me that I can conquer all things, and that healing is possible through God.” 

By His love I have been redeemed. And the only rightful response is for me to love God back. While I can never “outlove” Him, I simply give Him all the love I am capable of giving. It may not be much, not even close to the tip of His affections for me, but the little I have, I surrender to Him.

God, I just want to say THANK YOU and I LOVE YOU. Thank you for never giving up on me, and for promising to walk with me all the days of my life. I know there would still be days when my love will somehow grow cold, but even then I know that the warmth of your love will reach out to me. Thank you, God. I love You, Dad.

“Your patience was amazing waiting while my heart was wondering.
Your kindness is surprising as I stumble home you run to me.
I’m welcomed with rejoicing wrapped in the embrace of royalty
And now I’m overflowing, singing of the love I have received.”
