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.

Words of Love

When I stop and closely listen
When I calm the thoughts inside
When I take the time to be still
When my inner man I find

Then I hear His gentle voice
Speaking words of love to me
I just want to hear him more
So I ask the Lord to speak

He says
I love you
I bled for you
I died for you
I rise again
I walk with you
I hear your prayers
I know your needs
I’m everywhere

One He says these things I know
I must lift my hands in praise
For the blood he shed for me
I just worship His sweet name

Jesus, Jesus
How I love you so
Jesus, Jesus
I’m so glad I know you

He says
I love you
I bled for you
I died for you
I rise again
I walk with you
I hear your prayers
I know your needs
I’m everywhere

 

Isn’t It Enough

If He loves me why do I suffer
If He loves me why do I hurt
If He loves me why do the trials of life
Bring trouble at every turn

If He loves me why do I tremble
At what the next day will bring
If He loves me when will He come to my side
And relieve all that burns and stings

Isn’t it enough that He died for me to take away my sin
Isn’t it enough that the Spirit comes to settle your heart within
All that this life will throw at you
Will never compare to His love
So when trials and tests
Seem to steal all your rest
Come to Jesus for He is enough

If He loves me why is there heartache
If He loves me why am I poor
If he loves me why does it feel like each day
I find myself behind a door

I can’t explain it
I don’t know why
The troubles of life
Keep coming by
I’ll just press on
Giving Him praise
For he is the maker
Of all my days

Isn’t it enough that He died for me to take away my sin
Isn’t it enough that the Spirit comes to settle your heart within
All that this life will throw at you
Will never compare to His love
So when trials and tests
Seem to steal all your rest
Come to Jesus for He is enough

Remarkably Changed

When I was a sinner
Lost in despair
God sent His Son
To meet me there
I didn’t know Him
But He sure knew me
Loved me so much
He set me free

I am free
I am free
Jesus came down
To set me free
No more does sin
Have a hold on me
Because Jesus came down
To set me free

Once I met Him
My life surely changed
All of my habits
Remarkable changed
He stepped inside
This old body of mine
Helped me to clean up
My life right on time

Because I was lost
So lost
Full of junk in my life
So lost
But Jesus came down
Found me
Now I am His
Set free

I am free
I am free
Jesus came down
To set me free
No more does sin
Have a hold on me
Because Jesus came down
To set me free

 

Through and Through

I can’t explain His mercy
I can’t explain His grace
I can’t explain the love He has for me
For when I was a sinner
Didn’t even know He cared
He left His throne to come and rescue me

I was lost and lonely
Drowning in despair
My life was heading down a wicked road
A still small voice then spoke
It called to me that day
I knew that there was nowhere else to go

What a wondrous Savior
What a faithful friend
That He would love me just the way I am
I knelt before the altar
I gave my life to Him
That day the road I travelled led to Him

Today I try to serve Him
With all my heart and soul
But often I will stumble and will fall
He treats me with compassion
He shows His grace to me

I understand He loves me
But I cannot explain
Why He would forgive the things I do
I’ll rest here in His mercy
I’ll rest here in His grace
Because I know He loves me through and through

What Love He Has For Me

I am often just amazed
At the love He has for me
When I didn’t even know Him
He died to rescue me

What love He has for me
What amazing grace I see
The Lord above
Showed me His love
When He died to set me free

I was dying in my sin
There was no way I could win
When He found me in distress
Washed me from deep down within

What love He has for me
What amazing grace I see
The Lord above
Showed me His love
When He died to set me free

Now I look at that old cross
Just amazed at what He did
For He gave His life for me
Now I’m forever His

What love He has for me
What amazing grace I see
The Lord above
Showed me His love
When He died to set me free

Great is Your Majesty

Everything He’s done for me
To set me free
Eternally
Makes me sing and shout His praise
I’ll lift His name
All my days

Jesus, Jesus
He’s given me such grace
Jesus, Jesus
I long to look on His face

Jesus, Jesus
What a redeemer is He
Jesus, Jesus
Great is His majesty
