In the Still of the Night
You are there by my side
And I know I can trust in your love
At the dawn of the day
You provide me a way
Then I know I can trust in your love
As the Sun rises high
You will strengthen my life
So I know I can trust in your love
When the sun paints the sky
And the day has gone by
I have known I can trust in your love
There’s never am hour
When I don’t need your power
For I know who I can trust in your love
Keep me close by your side
For in you I’ll abide
There I know I can trust your love
I know there are times that I don’t love Him like I should. After all, He gave up a throne in heaven to come to earth as a babe because He loved me. He walked all over the nation of Israel, healing and preaching about the ways of our Father in heaven because He loved me. He took the ridicule and harassment of the religious leaders because He loved me. He was beaten and laughed at, mocked and ridiculed. He carried His own cross on which He was crucified because He loved me. He took the nails in His hands and feet and He cried out Father forgive them because He loved me. He rose again and sent the Holy Spirit Comforter to help me because He loved me?
And what do I do? How much time do I spend with Him each day. Every day he reminds me of His love for me by appearing in the little things, in nature all around me, in the people I meet and talk to. Every moment He is giving me breath and sight, hearing and taste and so many other things I do not deserve. And he will always do that because He loves me.
Romans 8:32-39 King James Version (KJV)
38 For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come,
39 Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
