How He Loves Us

Every time I chat with my friends, we always talk about our trials and how God saved, rescued and helped us deal with the things that we're going through. We talk about our plans, dreams, relationships, struggles, realizations and just everything about Him. It's really funny how each of us comfort each other with "let's just pray for it", "i'm praying for you", "all things are possible",  "He can do anything" and "God knows best" statements; funny because I just realized that that's just how we end every conversation. I shared my story and received those reminders just recently; and a while ago, was my turn to say those words to comfort a friend. 

When life gets difficult and we get frazzled,
staying close to our Christian friends will help us to get through.

I am thankful that He blessed and surrounded me with people who doesn't only believes in Him but also strongly believes that He is the only way. I think it's important for us to be reminded that nobody and nothing can solve our problems or heal our pain without His will for that thing to happen. It's important to keep in mind that our clever plans worked because He made it worked.

Today, I am reminded about His great love. If I can trust an ordinary person to love me, to not hurt me, to think of only good things for me and to be there for me when I need them, why can't I do that for the One who created me, died for me and sees everything that's going on in my present and will happen in my future?

He is jealous for me
Love's 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 realize just how beautiful You are
and how great your affections are for me.

So 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
So heaven meets earth like a sloppy wet 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

He loves us

Oh, how He loves us so
Oh, how He loves us
How He loves us so.
