He Loves Us!

Do you wake up awed by the fact that God loves you? 

Or, like many more of us, do you wonder if God loves you at all?  Perhaps you feel empty and wonder if any can love you?  Or, maybe, you don’t love yourself. 

Today there is Hope.  You can know and believe that God loves you!! He loves you no matter how you feel–messed up, self-centered, at the top of your game, or the bottom.  God is there.  His love is right there.  A love that died for you.  A love that conquered death!   For you! 

God loves you so much that He gave the priceless gift of His only child, Jesus, to die for you, to rescue your life on this earth, and give you hope for all your todays, tomorrows, and for eternity!

There’s no love like God’s.  His love is unconditional, powerful, awesome, gritty, deep, and most of all, unchanging! He wants you to know, today, that He loves You.  If you need a little reminder…listen to this song.  May the Lord sink the anchor of His love deep into your heart so you can know…really know…He loves you!! 

How He Loves Us

by John Mark McMillan

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 realise 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,
Whoa! how He loves us,
Whoa! how He loves us,
Whoa! how He loves.
Yeah, He loves us,
Whoa! how He loves us,
Whoa! how He loves us,
Whoa! 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 a sloppy wet 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,
Whoa! how He loves us,
Whoa! how He loves us,
Oh how He loves.
Yeah, He loves us,
Whoa! how He loves us,
Whoa! how He loves us,
Whoa! how He loves.

He loves us,
Whoa! how He loves us.
Whoa! how He loves us.
Whoa! how He loves.
Yeah, He loves us,
Whoa! how He loves us,
Whoa! how He loves us,
Whoa! how He loves.
