Music monday: if we only knew

 

Do we really know how much God loves us?

I don’t think we could ever fathom how much on this side of heaven.

God wants us to know every second of our life how much he loves us, but we will not feel or see that completely until we are home with Him.

It is a pretty wild thought and being a deep thinker, I have thought about it multiple times and it always leaves me with the best feeling of awe and mystery for my creator.

We have heard His promises for all who believe in Him, the jaw dropping miracles of Jesus in the new testament, and have read how Jesus conquered death. But the depth and true, holy love behind that. I don’t think we can ever comprehend those verses, words, and actions completely. 

If we only knew..

 

 

Intro:

 

We have tasted the sweetness of Your kindness

Caught a glimpse of Your glory in the Son

And the promise in Your word, it still reminds us

There are greater, greater things to come

 

I don’t know about you, but earlier in my faith walk, when I started learning about Jesus and literally witnessed for myself how He was working in my life, It left me speechless. 

Reading God’s word and all His beautiful promises, gives such hope to anyone searching for it.

There are so many great things to come who know Him.

 

Chorus:

 

If we only knew

How deep the ocean of Your love

How powerful every drop of blood

How much it cost to rescue us

If we only knew

How far the East is from the West

How we are clothed in righteousness

How strong the hands that conquered death

If we only knew

 

I love this song and I love these lyrics. When you listen to this song it is so powerful sounding.

What if we did feel and know how deep God’s love is for us?

And how powerful His blood is?

We would have a deeper and truer view on our faith and Jesus. Everything He has done and every single promise He promises to those who love and follow Him. We would believe that much more wholeheartedly.

I believe that all what these lyrics are saying is true. I feel true faith in Jesus is such a deep thing. We are meant to get emotional over it. And to feel the joy of blessing in Jesus deeply and meant to feel the sorrows in life deeply.

God made us in His image and we are emotional beings. He wants us to experience the depth and gravity of love in life with others and especially Him.

I feel that is why faith is faith. It is about believing in Him, even when we can’t feel or see Him.

I believe that we will feel His love in its whole form one day and see Him and meet His eyes with ours.

This song and the lyrics take me back. The depth felt in this song, is exactly how I feel with Jesus and about my faith. And why I want others to be encouraged through Him. Because, I believe the love and beauty that Jesus is and does for us in our personal relationships with Him, is something so sacred. 

 

 

Next section:

 

God, Your peace is beyond our understanding

Tender mercy like a river flowing through

You wait with patient arms to hold us

Desperate for the chance to show us

All we really need is You

 

God’s peace is a thing of mystery. I feel the things of God are just too much for our earthly brains to comprehend and I believe God made it that way for a reason.

The character of God is unbelievably amazing. All his qualities are something we can always depend on.

God is there for all. Even when we don’t go to Him or know Him for years. He is waiting there patiently for us and wants so badly to hold us and our troubles in His hands.

He wants us to know how much He loves us and that if we have Him, we have all we need.

 

Chorus Repeats

 

Next Section:

We are only scratching the surface

We are barely knocking on the door

We are only scratching the surface of Your goodness

We are barely knocking on the door

And You long to show us more

 

Chorus Repeats

 

Last Section of lyrics:

 

We are, we are

Daughters and sons held in Your arms

We are, we are

Daughters and sons adopted and loved by You

Ooh, ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh-ooh-oohh

Ooh, ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh-ooh-oohh

Ooh, ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh-ooh-oohh

 

It always blows my mind we are only scratching the surface with all of who Jesus is and His love for us.

The fact that God wants to show His goodness in my life, is truly indescribable. The creator of the universe wants a relationship with you. He wants your heart and to bless you with good things. And he always longs to show us more.

God is above us but He does not keep us separate from Him, like a lot of rulers do here in the earthly realm.

 He goes so far to call us His daughters and sons. We are fully loved and known by a God that has amazing things planned for us. 

If we only knew what was ahead, I think we all would worry a little less, love a little more, and start giving God the best part of our days.

So, let’s do all that anyways, even if we cannot fully grasp all God is and all He has prepared for those who love Him. Let’s step out in our faith boldly and love Him more and love the people around us more.

Because that love will not go to waste.

There is so much beauty in what we know of God and so much more we will uncover into eternity.

Hope you enjoyed this post and have a blessed week!

 

All for Jesus,

Steph
