Driving home from dropping my son off at school, and the song “In Awe” by Hollyn came on.
I hadn’t heard this song yet, and a line that jumped out at me was “‘Cause Your Love is overwhelming…”.
His love is overwhelming.
Now, I like to use the word overwhelmed, but that’s normally when I feel overwhelmed by life.
In this new season of waiting, I’m learning I’ve had a hard time understanding God’s Love, I tend to feel overwhelmed by all the things I need to do. My days get clouded and I end the day with “wow God that was rough.”
And I repeat trying to do more things to feel good, to ultimately feel loved.
Have you ever tried to earn love? Exhausting right? The list to do gets longer, the amount of people to love gets bigger, and if all we have is our love to give-it’s not enough. We become exhausted from the race that never ends. Discouraged. Defeated.
Maybe God has a new way for us. Mmm…I am making everything new…” (revelations 21:5) is a verse on repeat for me.
Back to the song. The last line says “I’m livin in awe…’cause you don’t need me at all…BUT You couldn’t love me more…You couldn’t love me more…”
As is, doing nothing. He couldn’t love you more.
Even though it might be painful, think of your lowest moment in life, He couldn’t love you more.
Think of your best moment in life, He couldn’t love you more.
His Love is the only unchanging thing in this life. Lean in and let Him whisper that truth to you. As is, He couldn’t love you more.
Oh Father, speak to is. Help us to feel Your love today. Overwhelm us with Your Love in a new way. We need to hear from you. Break through our walls we’ve built. So our hearts can open up to Your Love. In Jesus name, amen 💙
