Iíve been running- running away from the One who loves me-
Didnít think I was deserving after what Iíve done-
Couldnít even look at my own face in the mirror- all I could do was run.
How could You possibly love me? Donít You see the stains? Thereís nothing good in me- just heartache and pain.
Iíve failed. Iím broken and thereís so much shame.
No words can be spoken to restore my name.
How could You love me? Why would You even try?
Why wonít You leave me and allow me to die.
But I still hear You say:
Come on back to Your 1st Love. Iíve already forgiven.
Come back to Me and enjoy a better way of living.
Run into My arms. Feel My embrace. Let Me wipe the tears off your face.
I can never not love you. I gave everything for you.
My love covers your sin. Itís deeper- stronger than your pain- more intense than your shame-
I know what youíve gone through- I feel you-
If you come to Me I promise I can heal you.
How can You love me?
How could You love me? (I do)
How can You forgive me? (I have)
How can I be what Youíve called me? (You will)
How can You . . .? (Shhhh . . . I love you still)
I donít know your story- what youíve been through
But there is nothing that you could do to make Him stop loving you.
You may have spent your dayís crying-
May have even thought about dying
But if you never believe anything else believe that God loves you and gave His Son for you. He sees what you canít see. He sees you whole- complete- healed and freed from your past sins, hurts and failures. He sees you covered in the blood of Jesus- redeemed and righteous. Donít you dare give up on you. Hold on. Donít run from Him. Run to Him. Collapse into His arms. Lay your head on His shoulder. Release your tears. Let Him hold you. In your weakness, let Him be your strength. One word- One touch from God can change you forever. He loves you. He just does.
