Run Your Race

How Deep Is Your Love?

For today’s blog post I wanted to share a song I listened to last week. It was on Wednesday, and I had taken the day off from work to celebrate my birthday. Mario and I were headed back to the house after eating breakfast at our favorite French bakery. The sun was shining, and I was just happy to be with my husband in the middle of a work day. He put the song on, and I listened to the words and voices. I love the line that says, “How deep is your love, I really mean to learn…”

That part that says, “I really mean to learn.” I do. I think as we start to really learn how much God loves us, it drives out the dark in our lives. How do we start to learn how God loves us? For me, I have to take my eyes off of people, opinions, situations, the world, my bank account, my lack….and I have to purpose to believe something other than all of those things.

I really mean to learn all these things:

Since you were precious in My sight,
You have been honored,
And I have loved you;
Therefore I will give men for you,
And people for your life.
Fear not, for I am with you;
I will bring your descendants from the east,
And gather you from the west – Isaiah 43:4-5

***

Fear not, for I am with you;
Be not dismayed, for I am your God.
I will strengthen you,
Yes, I will help you,
I will uphold you with My righteous right hand – Isaiah 41:10

***

The Lord your God in your midst,
The Mighty One, will save;
He will rejoice over you with gladness,
He will quiet you with His love,
He will rejoice over you with singing. – Zephaniah 3:17

I’m on a journey and so are you. I’m on a journey to discover, every day, even more of this love that crashed into my hopeless life nine years ago and picked me up out of a pit and washed my soul clean from the shame of the life I led. I’m on a journey to learn more about this very love God put in my heart and to discover, every day, even more of the truth that His perfect love casts out fear (1John 4:18).

So this is my TGIF post today, and I wanted to give my husband a shout out for introducing me to this song and for being my music man. I love you!

Thanks for reading.

With all my heart,

Sonia
