He Loves Us


Music can move us in a way that reaches in and touches the innermost parts of our soul. Music can make us remember, can make us forget, and can make us think. Sometimes I will listen to music because I like the beat or the melody not paying any attention to the lyrics, and sometimes I will listen to the lyrics though it may be the worst composed song ever.

But when I listen to worship music I try to let it be a time of communion with God, allowing Him to speak to me and me desperately trying to tell Him how I feel. When our youth band sang the song "How He loves" for the first time I just listened and took in the beautiful images that came to my mind and tried to embrace God's love. I love love this song and wanted to share with you a piece of what I felt.

How He loves
by: David Crowder

He is jealous for me,
Loves like I 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

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 were an ocean, we're all sinking.
And 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!
Happy Wednesday! (ps. all photos were found on the web only one is mine, guess which one )
