But You love me anyway...

I must admit that I'm crazy about Christian music....I love how it can connect me with God!

As I sing my heart out to the Lord in worship, I am satisfied in a most wonderful way :)

As for my all-time favourite song or hymn I'm afraid that for me, this is too hard.

However with a recent 'Christian bloggers' challenge to blog about your favourite Christian song one has come to mind, which I feel I should share...

It's called 'You love me anyway' By an American group called Sidewalk Prophets.

So much of this song is meaningful to me it's almost like some of it is my story...

You see I had a relationship with Jesus as a girl, which I deliberately walked away from.

I did so many wrong things in my life, time and time again yet He did not abandon me

He did not change and in His love and patience, He waited for me!

Oh how undeserving of His love am I…yet He loves me anyway!

I am the thorn in Your crown
But You love me anyway
I am the sweat from Your brow
But You love me anyway
I am the nails in Your wrist
But You love me anyway
I am Judas’ kiss
But You love me anyway
See now, I am the man who yelled out from the crowd
For Your blood to be spilled on this earth shaking ground
Yes then, I turned away with a smile on my face
With this sin in my heart, tried to bury Your grace
And then alone in the night, I still called out for You
So ashamed of my life, my life, my life

But You love me anyway
Oh, God… how you love me
You love me anyway
It’s like nothing in life that I’ve ever known
You love me anyway
Oh Lord, how You love me
You love me, You love me
You love me, You love me
How You love me
How You love me
How You love me

It was indeed at night when God reached me with His awesome love, convicting me of my sin through His Word and Holy Spirit.
I was changed forever, Praise the Lord!
