Entry 43: "How He Loves"

This is one of my favorite songs by David Crowder Band!! Read through these lyrics and ponder them for a moment...

Verse One:
He is jealous for me, Loves like a hurricane, I am a tree, Bending beneath the weight of his wind and mercy. When all of a sudden, I am unaware of these afflictions eclipsed by glory, And I realise just how beautiful You are, And how great Your affections are for me.

Verse Two:
We are His portion and He is our prize, Drawn to redemption by the grace in His eyes, If grace is an ocean, we’re all sinking. And Heaven meets earth like an unforseen kiss, And my heart turns violently inside of my chest, I don’t have time to maintain these regrets, When I think about, the way…

Chorus:
Yeah he loves us, Oh! how he loves us, Oh! how he loves us, Oh! how he loves!

It talks about how great God is that we are just the insignificant little tree bending over at the weight of his power and glory!! We are nothing compared to Him! And we don't even see it until God opens our eyes and we realize how amazing our God really is and how much he loves us! He gave us grace when he died on that cross...more grace then we can ever imagine or give away ourselves! He is so great and he loves us so much!!!

So i am not a very good writer and at times can't get my thoughts out of my head but i just wanted to share with you all how much I love this song! It encourages me every time i listen to it!!!!

HOW HE LOVES US!!! Oh God, you are so great, help me see you with open and clearer eyes just how wonderful you are!!

This has been a song I have thought about much in the past year, and it has become one of my favorites as well... I even did some image research on pictures of trees and how they look when bent by a hurricane- it is a quiet meditation for one to think about in light of his power and glory! I am comforted alot by this vision... I had a blog before where I posted a really neat pic with the song words, I just might draw it up again for my-onlitzenroad blog.
