I recorded this song yesterday, not realizing how appropriate it would be for today.
Things just seemed so monumental and overwhelming today. So many things in addition to just life that I am having to reconcile in my head and constantly give to God, placing them in His hands because that is the only way that I will find peace. I have moments of complete trust, peace and joy, then will have moments of emotion that just wash over me. Part of my reactions are physical, and the other half circumstances. I will be normal and happy, but then have moments when the weight of some of these things hit me full force.
Through all this confusion, pain and sorrow, I need to remind myself that God’s love remains and will never end. This song did that for me, and I hope you are encouraged by it.
I know I need You
I need to love You
I love to see You, but it’s been so long
I long to feel You
I feel this need for You
And I need to hear You, is that so wrong?
Now You pull me near You
When we’re close, I fear You
Still I’m afraid to tell You, all that I’ve done
Are You done forgiving?
Oh can You look past my pretending?
Lord, I’m so tired of defending, what I’ve become
What have I become?
I hear You say,
My love is over It’s underneath
It’s inside It’s in between
The times you doubt Me, when you can’t feel
The times that you question, Is this for real?
The times you’re broken
The times that you mend
The times that you hate Me, and the times that you bend
Well, My love is over, it’s underneath
It’s inside, it’s in between
These times you’re healing, and when your heart breaks
The times that you feel like you’re falling from grace
The times you’re hurting
The times that you heal
The times you go hungry, and are tempted to steal
The times of confusion, in chaos and pain
I’m there in your sorrow, under the weight of your shame
I’m there through your heartache
I’m there in the storm
My love I will keep you, by My pow’r alone
I don’t care where you fall, where you have been
I’ll never forsake you, My love never ends
It never ends
By God’s Grace,
