Ain’t Nothin’ Gonna Keep Him Away From Us

1414570_98744553Marvin Gaye and Tammi Terrell really scored when they recorded “Ain’t No Mountain High Enough.” They sang it so well! I love the positive, determined message of the song. These are people in love and they’d do anything for each other! They’d climb any mountain, no matter how high or cross any river no matter how wide, just to get to get to one another.  Nothing was gonna keep them away from what they desired. You can call on them anytime and they will come running. Sounds like a committed relationship to me.1368860_99219722

God’s commitment to us is even greater. He didn’t just claim he’d do something. He did it: giving us His only begotten son Jesus, to make atonement for our sins at Calvary. You can’t get anymore romantic than that. That is romance with a capital R!  All other romantic notions pale in comparison to the pure love God has given us.

Happy Easter! You ARE loved!

Have You Ever Been In Awe Because Of God’s Love For You?

Have you ever been in awe because of God’s love for you?  I have!  It’s amazing that He loves us despite all the times we let Him down and have been so un-like His son Jesus.  I wrote a song about it and thought I would share the lyrics and the video clip.  I hope you enjoy it. 

Verse 1
Looking at the pieces shattered all around
The house so quiet, can’t hear a sound
Just my tears, as they fall

Verse 2
Fragments they’re like memories, made of broken glass
There to remind me, of a broken past which was my life
So long ago

Chorus
I wanna know why He, loves me like He does
I wanna know why He, cares for me
I wanna know why He, showers me with His love
I wanna know, I wanna know
 

Verse 3
He took this broken vessel and my tattered past
Put me back together and made a looking-glass
So I could see, Oh He’s so strong yeah yeah yeah

Verse 4
And for His love and mercy, I will bless His name
He is God almighty, worthy to be praised so I will praise
I will praise Him

Chorus Repeat

Reprise
Your worthy of glory
Your worthy of praise
Worthy of honor may your name be raised
You came along and you healed my life
You took all my darkness and gave me your life
And I wanna know..
