the way He loves

This is one of my favorite songs and one of my favorite things to think about :) 
"How He Loves" David Crowder Band
{and one of my favorite artists, Caitlin McGauley, watercolor paintings.... it's favorites Friday}

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 realize just how beautiful You are, 
And how great Your affections are for me.
And oh, how He loves us so
Oh how He loves us, 
How He loves us so

He loves us, 
Oh how He loves us, 
Oh how He loves us, 
Oh how He loves.
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 an unforeseen 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



And oh, how He loves us so
Oh how He loves us, How He loves us so


Yeah, He loves us,
Oh how He loves us, Oh how He loves us,
Oh how He loves.


Goodness, it rocks your world to think about how much we are loved by our Father in Heaven. It sure is amazing how He can radically change your life. I am so thankful for it, I have seen many lives changed before {and for fear of giving too much away out here in the world wide web} for the past couple of years I have seen God do the most amazing things with some incredibly special people. Since moving to Atlanta, God has surrounded me with a fantastic group of friends and colleagues. It is so joyous to know that we all share the same love and faith and understanding in life. Feeling that joy from God is such an intense feeling. 
To steal a line from my dad, "I can't swing a cat and not hit people like me." I think what he meant... was that I am so blessed to be raised and constantly throughout my life be surrounded by people that share my desire for education, for "doing the right thing", for having Faith in God above, for enjoying life, being happy, positive and leading a respectable life. There are blessings all around us, even in the midst of crud. A life led by God is amazing. I am reminded of that every minute of my day. 

So Heaven meets earth like an unforeseen 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
That He loves us

Amen :) amc
