This morning as I was getting ready in the dark with no electricity I had music shuffling randomly from my phone. I wasn’t really paying much attention to the music because instead I was trying to strategically hang the headlamp so I could see without using my hands to hold the light. But as a song came on I caught myself saying the words along with the musician.
“The Lord says there is nothing that you can do that would make Him love you more. There is also nothing you can do that will make Him love you less. He loves you because He loves you because He loves you because He loves you…”
I chanted along with the words “Because he loves you” probably five times before I stood there in amazement at what I was really saying.
He loves me because he loves me because he loves me because he loves me…
It isn’t a love that I earn. It isn’t a love that I strive for. It isn’t a love I have to work to receive. It isn’t a love that is contingent on me.
It is a love that is constant. It is a love that is unchanging. It is a love that is unlike any other love. It is the best love there ever is or ever will be. It is a love that can not be put into words.
Some of the sweetest moments in life for me are not when I sit still and listen for God to reveal himself in big ways, but instead in the little moments when he sweetly and gently speaks in the most unexpected ways and times. It’s in the moments where I am walking through life and he reminds me of just exactly who he is. The moments where his whispers his love for me.
He loves me because he loves me because he loves me because he loves me.
Maybe you need the same sweet reminder this morning that I needed, he loves you because he loves you because he loves you because he loves you!
