The Believers Life

Unusual Love

It’s so unusual that I would ever worry
It’s so unusual that I would ever doubt
It’s so unusual that hope would die within me
I’m not sure I would find a way out

I cannot fathom not having faith in Jesus
I am not sure life would ever be the same
If He had not found me in the shadows
When He did the most unusual thing

He brought me to my knees
He brought my eyes to tears
As I cried out to Him
From way down deep within
He took my sins away
Gave new life that day
To a sinner such as I
Now I will testify

His love is unusual
His love is amazing
His love covers everything
My sin and my failures
I trusted my life to Him
Now He gives me everything
I will rest in His sweet arms
Unusual love

There are times I don’t understand it. Let’s face it! I was not the ideal candidate to become a witness for Jesus Christ. I was a drunk, drug addict, lived a perverted life and every sentence out of my mouth used His name as a curse. I had heard of this Jesus but just couldn’t figure out why he would love a derelict like me, nor did I care to know,. I was content with my miserable life, lonely and wandering with others who had the same afflictions as I. I figured life would go on just fine without some kind of religion flooding my mind. I had a good job, making and wasting pretty good money. I had a group of friends but in reality I was alone.

Then one day He led me (I know this now but did not know at the time) 1,500 miles to visit a friend. He led that friend to take me to a church service where I found out about this unusual love. I knew at the end that Jesus had died for my sins so that He could save me from a devil’s hell. I knew I did not want to go to that place. Later that week I gave my life to Him, my miserable life. His unusual love accepted me just the way I was. I knew I had been changed in that very instant. Life would never be the same because of His unusual love.

1 John 4:10 King James Version (KJV)
10 Herein is love, not that we loved God, but that he loved us, and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins.

    “I was not the ideal candidate to become a witness for Jesus Christ.” Hmmmm let’s see: Moses, David, Aaron, oh let’s not forget the ever loving St. Paul who never did one thing wrong. Yep, I think you are in pretty good company! Lol! You were just the candidate that Christ needed, my friend! God Bless, SR
