This is my song for you, My God. Thank you for loving me eternally and unconditionally. It is everything. It is all I need. I sing a song for you, my God. And that’s enough for me.
This is what I wrote when I went on retreat and felt the power of God’s love like I had never felt before. I had been always trying to win love through my accomplishments and my achievements with music. Trying to prove I was worthy of love. I always thought I was failing in some way. That I was never enough. But now I was learning something new in the middle of my life. To know that I am loved just as I am.
It’s such a simple notion that some of us haven’t been told since we were little or we read somewhere along the way: “God loves you”. But the key is He wants us to receive that Love in our hearts not just know it in our minds. We receive His love by doing nothing at all. Just being. We don’t need to accomplish something great or earn His love in anyway. We don’t need to beat up ourselves up anymore by criticizing and condemning ourselves for our mistakes and shortcomings.
He sees us. He knows us like no-one else. He created us in His image and we are precious in His sight. I wrote these words as God spoke to my heart. He said to me…”You need to know in the depths of your being. You are loved as You Are.” We receive it when we really take the time to let these words soak into our hearts. So we really know it because we experience it.
(Isaiah 43:4, Psalm 139: 1-4, 13-14)
