Food for thought…Just to be with you

just to be with you

I love this song by Third Day, you can listen to it here, its called “Just to be with you”

The Lyrics go like this:

I’ve heard it said that a man would climb a mountain
Just to be with the one he loves.
How many times has he broken that promise?
It has never been done
Well I never climbed the highest mountain,
but I walked the hill of calvary.

And just to be with you I’ll do anything,
there’s no price I would not pay, no
And just to be with you I will give everything.
And I would give my life away.

And I’ve heard it said that a man would swim the ocean
Just to be with the one he loves.
But all of those dreams are an empty emotion
It can never be done.
Well I never swam the deepest ocean
But I walked upon the raging sea

And just to be with you I would do anything,
there’s no price I would not pay, no
Just to be with you I would give everything.
and I would give my life away.

And I know that you don’t understand the fullness of my love
How I died upon the Cross for your sin
And I know that you don’t realize how much that I give you
And I promise I would do it all again

Just to be with you I’ve done everything,
there’s no price I did not pay, no
Just to be with you I gave everything.
Yes I gave my life away.

I gave my life away

Just to be with you
Oh, just to be with you
Oh, just to be with you
Oh, just to be with you

 

I am in awe that God gave His son, HIS ONLY son so that He could be with me, so that He could have fellowship with me, so that He could spend eternity with me.  I could never fully understand such a sacrifice until I had my own son.  I could never give up the life of my precious son, I cant even think of it.  Yet God in His great grace and abundant mercy toward me sent His only son to pardon my sins by His death on the cross at calvary.  One part of this song that stuck out to me was”And I know that you don’t understand the fullness of my love” Until I am face to face with my Savior, where are the Bible says “We will see Him as He is” (1 John 3:2), until that day I can never fully comprehend God’s unfailing love towards me.  My natural being cannot grasp it.

Think of this scripture “But he was pierced for our transgressions, he was crushed for our iniquities; the punishment that brought us peace was on him, and by his wounds we are healed” Isaiah 53:5

God gave His only son, precious and faultless, to carry a cross to calvary’s hill, where He bore our sins, our shame, our faults, and our failures.  He was beaten, mocked, purged, and crucified so that He could be with you and I.  Dear sister, He wants to be with you today, He wants you to know Him deeper, He wants you to experience His perfect love. I found myself singing that song back to my Savior today, I just long to be with Him and grow deeper with Him each day.  I pray you would grasp His love today, and experience it with all of your being.
