you are loved 

writing challenge day #6 – the Lords promises 

I think this is going to be a two day post. I feel like it takes time to really let this promise sink in like it should and even in that time it’s probably not enough. Today it will probably be short and simple. Let it sink in and tomorrow I’ll post more scripture and such to help you rest in the promise. The promise is … The Lords love for us. How he loves us. How his love endures forever and how his love is proven and begins with the cross. 

Here is a song I found … I have known about this song and love it but I found this version with parts of a sermon in it and it’s super good. 

Here are the lyrics … How he loves us by David Crowder band … 

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, oh,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 realise just how beautiful You are,And how great Your affections are for me.

And oh, how He loves us, oh,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.

And we are His portion and He is our prize,Drawn to redemption by the grace in His eyes,If his grace is 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…

That 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.

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

Love love love the verse … If His grace is an ocean we’re all sinking. How true is that verse??? But back to the promise of today … His love 🙂 I’ll leave you with one verse to cling to today  

  Romans 5:8 “but God demonstrates his own love for us in this;While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.” I’ve also Romans 5:8 interpreted as “I (God) loved you at your darkest.” And “You are loved more then you will ever know by someone who died to know you.” Romans 5:8 

So cling to this promise today … You are loved!!
