Oh How He Loves Us

Warning... It was a weepy morning for me.

It's Wednesday right? Bible Study morning. SO I bet you can guess how my morning went?


But fortunately it only lasted until we got in the car and things started looking up from there.
I've mentioned before how music has a way with me. When I'm frazzled (Like I was this morning) it helps me to find a song, turn it up loud, and sing it with my whole heart at the top of my lungs. A few weeks ago we were in the car and I was singing my heart out and Siah so politely informed me, "Mama, please stop singing, you's ruining the song." WOW! Thanks buddy! :)

This morning we listened to David Crowder's new song, Oh How He Loves Us.
I turned it up... I started singing... I looked in my rearview mirror and saw all three (even Reesie was moving her mouth) treasures singing their hearts out! And as we all sang, the truth of the words worked their way into my heart and the tears started to flow out of my eyes. I looked in my rearview mirror again and Siah's eyes caught mine and he shot me this beaming smile and he chuckled at me. THen the chorus rang out, "OH HOW HE LOVES ME!" And looking at all my treasures in that backseat I knew without a shadow of a doubt that Jesus, the King of Kings, the Lord of Lords himself, truly, madly, deeply, passionately, and intimately... LOVES... little old me!

I soaked it all up. We arrived at Bible Study. Our friend Nicole lead worship and it was beyond awesome in my opinion. I cried again.

Then this sweet young women got up to give a short devotional about the things that the Lord is doing in her life to refine her. She said a lot of things but the one thing that got my little heart was when she was explaining the way that the Lord was working in her heart through her pain. Through her tears she shared how her circumstances have led her into this deep hunger for the Lord. Her mom was sitting in front of me and I watched her as she watched her daughter share. And I couldn't help but think of how my heart would feel if my little Hal, or my little Reesie, stood up in front of a crowd of women and confessed their deep deep longing, love, and need for their Savior with a personal, genuineness of heart. Because the Lord himself had captivated them... That will be the absolute best day of my life... Not the day that they get married, or graduate from some school or another... But the day that their hearts fall passionately in love with the one and only God of the universe!

Tears... Tears.. More tears.
Joyful tears.

Oh How He Loves Us!!!

Oh My Goodness How He Loves Us!!!

I added the David Crowder song to my playlist on our blog. If you'd like you can turn it up as loud as it can go... close your eyes... and sing your heart out!!!!!! I promise it will bless your heart!!!! :)
