He loves me!

We sang the song Beautiful Beautiful (words below) in church on Sunday. I’ve never heard the song before (if we had a decent Christian radio station maybe I would have!). It was sung by Jennifer Books (who happens to be one of my favorite fuel mom’s – she’s got one of the best smiles in the world). I wish I could have found a decent Youtube to put the video up, you’ll have to check it out on Rhapsody or itunes. This song pierced my heart, and has been on played over and over on my mp3 player yesterday and is currently on repeat (yes, I can listen to the same song over and over).

I am constantly amazed by how much God loves me. In my mess, He came to me. Well, He was with me all along, it was me who needed to turn around and acknowledge Him. I just can’t believe that He could love me, that He can make my life beautiful. I screw up a lot. Maybe you know of what I speak, I’ve had battles in my insides “you know what you’ve done if anyone knew, they would kick you to the curb”. And maybe they would. Grace. How many times I’ve had it spread of me like a cloak.

Isn’t it just amazing that no matter what I do, God hates the sin not the sinner. That He loves me, in a mess or doing well. HE LOVES ME!! HE LOVES ME!! There’s no daisy “he loves me, he loves me not” game played here, HE JUST LOVES ME!

And no matter where you are, He loves you too.

Romans 8:38-39 38For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons,[a] neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, 39neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

Beautiful Beautiful by Francesca Battistelli

Don’t know how it is You looked at me
And saw the person that I could be
Awakening my heart
Breaking through the dark
Suddenly Your grace

Like sunlight burning at midnight
Making my life something so
Beautiful, beautiful
Mercy reaching to save me
All that I need
You are so
Beautiful, beautiful

Now there’s a joy inside I can’t contain
But even perfect days can end in rain
And though it’s pouring down
I see You through the clouds
Shining on my face


I have come undone
But I have just begun
Changing by Your grace

My friend said to me today that when the enemy reminds you of your past, you need to remind him of his future! Defeated, he is. From the get go. Victorious, we are. By God's amazing grace!
