All of This for You

This past Saturday I had the whole day to myself because my son was on a sledding trip with a friend and my husband was working. So I hooked my iPod up to the stereo and put my Christian playlist on shuffle. At one point during the afternoon the song All of This for You by Revive came on. I love this song, and I’ve heard it many times before, but for some reason this time it brought tears of joy to my eyes.

The lyrics of this song are such a precious reminder of how much God loves us; how much He loves me. Even though I am a sinner, He has saved me by His grace.

Then love leant in near
And whispered in my ear

It’s you I’ve come for
It’s you I want more
I’d do anything for you
There’s nothing left to say
Nothing left to prove
I’ve done all there is to do
I do all of this for you

My heart is filled with deeper joy
Than I have ever had
To be fully known
And yet still loved
Nothing I have ever done
Can even compare
To hearing His words fall like a flood

I love how God confirms a message like this one. On Sunday morning, our youth minister Colie gave the sermon. She shared about her mission trip to Ecuador that she just returned from. The core of her message was that God loves us even in our brokeness – not in spite of it, but because of it. Jesus came not to save the righteous, but sinners. It is in our weakness and brokeness that God enters into our lives and heals us.

Jesus bore our sins for us, because He loves us. He did all of this for you and for me.

I am a Jesus Freak, and I don't care who knows it. I am a wife, mother, sister, aunt, daughter, and friend. My blood family is only part of the larger family of Christ that I belong to. I love to write, especially about my dear Savior.
