We are His portion and He is our prize,
Drawn to redemption by the grace in His eyes,
If grace is an ocean, we’re all sinking.
So Heaven meets earth like a sloppy wet kiss,
And the heart turns violently inside of my chest,
I don’t have time to maintain these regrets,
When I think about, the way…
He loves us..
He loves us – Kim Walker
Oh how He loves us… really think about that, He REALLY loves us to the point of being jealous of anything that we put before him. He longs…. yearns for a deep relationship with us. He doesn’t want to be just “God who is feared”, he wants to be our personal Savior and FRIEND. He longs for that. He wants to have a personal love encounter with each and every one of us….
I don’t know about you, but that just does my heart all sorts of good. I can’t help to dance and jump up and down when I hear the words to this song. I cant help but raise my hands and lift my head and close my eyes and worship, really worship the God who is jealous for me. And I don’t have time to maintain these regrets when I think about the way He loves me. They are meaningless compared to His love for me. My cancer is meaningless compared to His love for me, it falls helpless at His feet because no matter what, NO MATTER WHAT, I am His. He paid the ultimate price, the death His only son, for me, that is how much He loves me. I can just curl up in his lap and rest my head on his shoulder when I need to, or I can yell and scream at the top of my lungs that this is soo not fair, I can cry until I have no tears left, until all I have is the ache in my heart and His love for me is the same. It never changes. He never walks away, never abandons me, never disowns me… He always loves me.
Think about that… He always loves us, no matter what we do. There may be consequences for our actions, but they are always loving, never full of anger and always… ALWAYS for our benefit. And those consequences never NEVER change His love for us. He tells me that my sins are as far as the East is from the West, they are on the bottom of the ocean floor. The only way they can be brought back up is if I bring them up, and then He gently reminds me that He has already paid the price, the ultimate price for that sin…whatever that sin might be.
And heres the kicker:
He is jealous for me…
I have a heavenly daddy who is jealous for me.
That makes me smile….
