Lyrical Friday - Love Me

Whom have I in heaven but you? I desire you more than anything on earth. My health may fail, and my spirit may grow weak, but God remains the strength of my heart; He is mine forever. Psalm 73:25-26

Hi Friends.
Today's Lyrical Friday song is Love Me by JJ Heller. This song echoes what God has been speaking to me through the book of Isaiah and pretty much through everyone I encounter. There is no limit to God's love for us. Nothing will ever separate us from the Love of God. His love knows no bounds.

A few years ago, I had hit rock bottom and fell into an ugly depression. Wrong decisions had shaken my ground. I was left feeling confused and betrayed by my heart. It was during that lonely, dark, dry and barren season of my life that I learned a lesson that continues breathing life to me. It was in a prayer meeting that God lead me to Joel 2:13(NLT) and He spoke to me: ["Don’t tear your clothing in your grief, but tear your hearts instead.” Return to the Lord your God, for he is merciful and compassionate, slow to get angry and filled with unfailing love. He is eager to relent and not punish.]

God's character is simply amazing yet profoundly indescribable.
He is merciful.
He is compassionate.
He is slow to anger.
He is abounding in love.
He is eager to bless you.
And in Him, death has lost its sting.

May His love be your all in all. God bless you.

He cries in the corner where nobody sees 
He's the kid with the story no one would believe
He prays every night, Dear God won't you please
Could you send someone here who will love me?

Who will love me for me
Not for what I have done or what I will become
Who will love me for me
Cause nobody has shown me what love
What love really means

Her office is shrinking a little each day
She's the woman whose husband has run away
She'll go to the gym after working today
Maybe if she was thinner
Then he would've stayed
And she says

Who will love me for me?
Not for what I have done or what I will become
Who will love me for me?
Cause nobody has shown me what love, what love really means

He's waiting to die as he sits all alone
He's a man in a cell who regrets what he's done
He utters a cry from the depths of his soul
Oh Lord, forgive me, I want to go home
Then he heard a voice somewhere deep inside
And it said
I know you've murdered and I know you've lied
I have watched you suffer all of your life
And now that you'll listen, I'll tell you that I...

I will love you for you
Not for what you have done or what you will become
I will love you for you
I will give you the love
The love that you never knew
