BUT…HE LOVES ME ANYWAY!


Pastor Danny has been preaching on a series called, Engaged.  In the notes yesterday, there was a passage from Psalm 139:1-6.   Verse 4 really caught my attention!  Take a look….

“You know what I’m going to say even before I say it, LORD.”

WOW!  When I read that, I thought to myself… “The Lord KNOWS what I’m going to say…and He loves me anyway!”  That’s mind-blowing to me because some of the things that come out of my mouth are really bad!  I know they are displeasing to God, because they are displeasing to me, and I repent right after I say it…but it’s already out of my mouth.  I can’t undo what I’ve said;  BUT…He loves me anyway!

It reminded me of a song I hear on K-Love…

You Love Me Anyway
The question was raised
As my conscience fell
A silly little lie
It didn’t mean much
But it lingers still
In the corners of my mind
Still you call me to walk
On the edge of this world
To spread my dreams and fly
But the future’s so far
My heart is so frail
I think I’d rather stay inside
But You love me anyway
It’s like nothing in life
That I’ve ever known
Yes You love me anyway
Oh Lord, how You love me
How you love me
It took more than my strength
To simply be still
To seek but never find
The reasons we change
The reasons I doubt
And Why do loved ones have to die?
But You love me anyway
It’s like nothing in life
That I’ve ever known
Yes You love me anyway
Oh Lord, how You love me
I am the thorn in your crown
But You love me anyway
I am the sweat from Your brow
But You love me anyway
I am the nail in Your wrist
But You love me anyway
I am Judas’ kiss
But You love me anyway
See now I am the man who yelled out from the crowd
For Your blood to be spilled on this earth-shaking ground
Yes then I turned away with a smile on my face
With this sin in my heart, tried to bury Your grace
And then alone in the night I still call out for You
So ashamed of my life, my life, my life
But You love me anyway
Oh God, how You love me
Yes You love me anyway
It’s like nothing in life
That I’ve ever known
Yes You love me anyway
Oh Lord, how You love me
You love me
You love me
You love me
You love me
How You love me
How You love me
How You love me                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                             What a wonderful thought!  Jesus loves us anyway…in all of our weakness, our sin, our flesh…He loves us!  Thank you Lord for Your GRACE!
