I'm sitting here at the computer before 7am checking my email and as the newly risen sun is streaming in the window, Kim Walker's song "He Loves Us" is playing on my little ipod shuffle. And I am struck by the raw and awesome reality of those words. God loves us - not in a calm, controlled way, not because He has to, but He loves us in a wild, undeserved, overwhelmingly powerful way. Something in my spirit just feels like bursting with praise and tears and love when I listen and sing along with this song! Oh how He loves us, oh how He loves us. I am completely unashamed of how His love can leave me a complete mess! A mess of gratitude!
If you have never heard this song, or need to again, check it out.
