Loving Kindness

This morning during our family devotions we sang a song that really touched my heart. God's been teaching me a lot lately about Himself. Mainly, His love for me. In the recent past, I've come to realize that I have a big problem with doubting God's love for me. But, praise Him, He's been showing His love in so many ways. I thought I'd write the song down here for anyone else who needs a reminder of what God's love is.

Loving Kindness

Awake, my soul, to joyful lays,
And sing thy great Redeemer's praise;
He justly claims a song from me,
His loving kindness, oh, how free!

Loving Kindness,
Loving kindness,
His loving kindness, oh, how free!

He saw me ruined in the fall,
Yet loved me not withstanding all;
He saved me from my lost estate,
His loving kindness, oh, how great!

Loving kindness,
loving kindness,
His loving kindness, oh, how great!

Tho' num'rous hosts of mighty foes,
Tho' earth and hell my way oppose,
He safely leads my soul along,
His loving kindness, oh, how strong!

Loving kindness,
loving kindness,
His loving kindness, oh , how strong!

When trouble, like a gloomy cloud,
Has gathered thick, and thundered loud,
He near my soul has always stood,
His loving kindness, oh, how good!

Loving kindness,
loving kindness,
His loving kindness, oh, how good!

I hope this encourages someone today! It certainly encouraged me. :)

Running the race,
~A
