I am always deeply moved by the lyrics of the song "Amazed". The lyrics say in essence, "Lord, I'm amazed by You, how You love me." What is so amazing about Jesus loving me, is that He loves me just the way I am!
No one knows me better than Jesus. However, no one else knows me better than me! Yes, He knows everything in my heart...some of which I don't even know yet. But I know more than anyone else about what is in my heart (outside of Jesus). I know what He delivered me from and where He brought me from. In addition, I know where I am. I know what I struggle with. I know the things in my heart that break His heart. I know the things the please Him, and I know the things that displease Him. I know I have been brought a long, long way. But....I know I have quite a ways to go!
Some of the things I know about myself are not pleasing to me...let alone the God who knows ALL. But what amazes me most about my God is that He loves me! He loves me just as I am, but His plans are not to leave me as I am. He loves me with an everlasting love; a love that empowers me to live for Him. His grace is amazing. But it is because of His amazing love that His grace is amazing!!
Yes, I stand amazed at the love of my Jesus.....the love He has for me! I discovered this amazing love 34 years ago this month. His love still amazes me. Hardly a day goes by without my being amazed that the Creator of all the universe loves me with an incredible love that will never run dry. It just keeps on and on and on! Lord, I truly am amazed by you...how you love me!
