The days had just turned, from bright, sunny and warm to stark, cool with just a hint of frost in the air. I stood at the window in my kitchen, staring into the courtyard.
When the rain is blowing in your face and the whole world is on your case
I could offer you a warm embrace to make you feel my love
Warm liquid hit my hands as I looked down and realized that tears were falling down my cheeks onto my now still hands.
When the evening shadows and the stars appear and there is no one there to dry your tears
I could hold you for a million years to make you feel my love.
It had been a hard week. Dealing with issues that had come up of rejection I no longer knew how to cope. I was doing what every good German girl does (or so my Oma says), I was cleaning to deal. I was cleaning to cope.
I know you haven’t made your mind up yet
But I would never do you wrong
I’ve known it from the moment
That we met no doubt in my mind
Where you belong
Those words tore into my rejected heart. Years of pain built up, as I listened to the voice of a girl from Essex belt out a love song.
But it didn’t feel like a love song from a woman to a man. It felt stronger, deeper and much more than simple words.
I’d go hungry, I’d go black and blue and I’d go crawling down the avenue
You Know there’s nothing that I wouldn’t do to make you feel my love
“For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life. 17″For God did not send the Son into the world to judge the world, but that the world might be saved through Him. John 3:16-17
Jesus. My God. My savior, my Lord, nailed to the cross because I was loved, am loved, so much that He died for me. He died for you.
The storms are raging on the rolling sea and on the highway of regret
The winds of change are blowing wild and free
You ain’t seen nothing
Like me yet.
There are days that are good. There are days that are absolutely incredible. There are days where I sit on the bathroom floor wishing that I still wasn’t dealing with the pain.
There are days that will be awful and there will be days that will incredible.
There will always be “days”.
However, bigger, strong and more powerful than a day is one the we call Messiah, Yahweh, Lord Almighty, El-Shaddai.
I could make you happy, make your dreams come true
Nothing that I wouldn’t do
Go to the ends of the Earth for you
To make you feel my love, To make you feel my love
He’s longing for you like he longs for me.
“I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.” John 16:33
His message is simple. He loves.
