Love So Amazing

how many of us fall for this special time of the year, particularly an occasion for couples? oh me yes i am guilty, definitely! guys, i am writing this post not to put down anybody with their plans this V-day but to inspire more when we celebrate this Heart/Love day.

last month i went to a concert with my friend. we arrived a little bit late but not bad because i went home so blessed. there is this girl singing--she is part of the group called THE TRUTH and she rendered the song LOVE SO AMAZING wonderfully that i felt goosebumpy?. this is not halloween folks, it is real. it reminded me when i was in the stage of rebelling against God. hmm really? i rebel? yes i did..

there was a point in my life where i want follow my heart. so i did so much that i still am experiencing the consequences now. i want to be the center of everything. whether i was with my family or friends-most specially friends because that became an outlet to me that i can "SHOW-OFF" and they would listen, right? so my rebelion continued, until one night i wanted to end all the misery my selfishness brought to my life. i wanted a way out. and God showed me in His Word in Jeremiah 17:9 that "The heart is deceitful above all things and desperately wicked, who can know it." and i did not think it is enough so i continue to fight His will in my life. God used many verses in the Bible particularly in Job 38-40 and Philippians 3:8-9 and songs to tell me that i don't live for myself--that He created me for His pleasure. so meaning whatever i do, it reflects back to Him. several thoughts flashed back like "The chief end of man is to glorify God and to enjoy Him forever." God's love, grace and mercy surrounded me as i continue to humble myself before Him. thank God for His Son Jesus i have another chance to love Him, love others and love my life He has given me. without it i don't think i can truly love others..just imagine me loving others with my own STINKS!

i hope that as we go through this weekend, we remember to share what we have got from God--His love that cost His Son Jesus His life, to save us from our sins so that we can have everlasting life. it doesn't only mean when we die, guys..but as we live in this messy and sinful world, we have Him as our Anchor, our LifeGiver our TrueLover.

should you want to refer to the lyrics of Love So Amazing and Your Grace Still Amazes Me and How Deep.

Love So Amazing

Love so amazing, ever embracing
All that i am and all that I've been
And right where i am living
Mercy keeps giving
Just when i need
Love so amazing

Incredible, it is beautiful
Coming from the Father above
And its powerful, unconditional
Ever living never ending love
Never ending love

Your Grace Still Amazes Me

Your grace still amazes me
Your love still a mystery
Each day i fall on my knees
Cause Your grace still amazes me

It's deeper, it's wider,
it's stronger, it's higher
It's deeper, it's wider,
It's stronger, it's higher
Than anything my eyes can see

How Deep

You were broken
That I might be healed
You were cast off
That I might draw near
You were thirsty
That I might come drink
Cried out in anguish
That I might not sin

Oh You knew darkness
That I might know light
Wept gray tears that mine might be dried
Crushed by Your Father
To call me Your own

How deep is Your love
How high and how wide is Your mercy
How deep is Your grace
Our hearts overflow with praise

We love because he first loved us.
(1 John 4:19 ESV)

Agape xoxo
