Oh How He Loves Us!!

Today while running errands with my little 5 year old I had the radio on in the car. This song comes on by the David Crowder Band, "Oh How He Loves Us." She exclaims, "Turn it up mommy!" She starts singing along in her voice so full of confidence, and even though she is only 5 you could tell that she was singing this from her heart back to God. She knows without doubt that she is loved by the Most High God, she believes there is nothing that is impossible for God to do for her.....what faith! 



The love of the Father.....AMAZING!!! He loves you and I more than anything. We are of great value to Him. He created us, then he sent His son to the cross to redeem us....What Love!! And my little girl, just basking in the adoration of the Father....it moved me. I felt myself getting teary-eyed. At her yes, but also at the realization that she made me see that I am important to the King of Kings! That out of everything that is going on in the world right now and other people's lives, that my life is important to Him. That He sees me, that He loves me with an unfailing love, that I am treasured.....

Toward the end of the song there is a line that says, "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, He loves us."  All of a sudden a truth took hold for me in my heart, that yes, I have regrets, I have past failures, I have faults, I've made horrible decisions....but all of those things, cannot stand in the light of the Father's love for us and the work that was done on the cross. My regrets just don't measure up to or take precedence over what He done  to provide salvation and healing for me. When I repented of all those regrets....they left. They are with me no more, I don't have the time nor the energy to spend on maintaining them. What freedom!

Oh How He Loves Us

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 

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. 

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 grace is an ocean, we're all sinking 
So 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 

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

Yeah, He loves us, 
Oh how He loves us, 
Oh how He loves us, 
Oh how he loves 
Yeah, He loves us, 
Oh how He loves us, 
Oh how He loves us, 
Oh how He loves.



What about you? Are you ready to move past your regrets and embrace the Father's love for you? 



Be Blessed!
