How He Loves

(if you are using a reader, then go to my actual blog entry to view the video)

Take a moment right now- start the music video above and close your eyes where you are. Picture yourself outside your body, sitting there, with your eyes shut. But instead of picturing your kids running all around, coworkers laughing, TV blaring, or any other distraction.... picture Jesus sitting by you, giving you the most loving and sincere embrace. Isn't it amazing how you now visualize yourself smiling and peaceful?

He is faithful, loving, sincere, compassionate and affectionate. And He loves you more than anything....

Today and tomorrow, as you get distracted and irritated by scrambling to finish shopping, wrapping and planning... remember this. His love for you- that's all that matters December 25th, and EVERY day.

How He Loves by David Crowder Band

He is jealous for me,
Loves like a hurricane, I am a tree,
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 grace is an ocean,
we’re all sinking.
And Heaven meets earth like an unforseen 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…

(We had the priveledge of attending service this past Sunday at Amadeo in Gilbert. My sister performed a dance to this song with other women and children of the church. The dance, and song, have both stuck with me this entire week so far. Thank you, Amadeo, for visualizing how much He loves us. )

I absolutely am moved by the song. I thank you for allowing me to be a part of your story in HIS big story. I have read the end of THE BOOK and He wins. Praise God in the storm and pray that we get a glimpse of His plan.
