I was on my way to pick up my oldest from school the other day. Thinking about everything going on. Questioning why God would want anything to do with me. "I Need You To Love Me" by Barlow Girl was playing on the radio. I was singing along and the line said "Cause You're a God who has all things, and still You want me." I have heard this song a thousand and never realized that line.
It gave me goose bumps, it really made me think. It was so true. It brought tears to my eyes. Here He is a God who has all things, anything, everything. A God who is lacking nothing and can make anything out of nothing. A God who lives in Heaven, in perfectness. And still He wants me. Why?? He could have done away with me and this old world a long time ago. But He didn't. His love is unfathomable, His love is unimaginable. For a God who has everything He could possibly want, He still wants me. What kind of love is this??
1 John 4:9-10 (NIV)9 This is how God showed his love among us: He sent his one and only Son into the world that we might live through him. 10 This is love: not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as an atoning sacrifice for our sins.
