I have recently been listening to this amazing Worship song called “Arms Wide Open” by Misty Edwards & as i listened to it i feel like crying because it just talks about how amazing God’s love is.
I am seventeen years old and most of my friends have had boyfriends & i always asked myself ‘Lord why do they all have somene to love them ?’ “why do they have boyfriends and i don’t?” i know it probably sounds like im desperate but i always wondered… & when i heard this song last week i literally felt like the lord was answering my prayers :) the lyrics say :
“And as I sat there weeping, crying
Those beautiful eyes, full of desire and love
He said to me:
“You shall love Me, You shall love Me
You shall love Me, You shall love Me”
With arms wide open, a heart exposed
With arms wide open, bleeding, sometimes bleeding
If anybody’s looking for love in all the wrong places
If you’ve been searching for love, come to Me, come to Me“
Its not the whole song but this song really ministered to my life & gave me peace.It made me think that the only one who can give me the greatest Love that anyone can ever give me is GOD!!So if anyone who is reading this has gone through the same questioning i hope that you guys listen to the song ! and even if you are not going through the same situation if you are depressed,feel rejected, or what ever situation you are in know that God Jesuschrist has a Beautiful and eternal love to give you!!
I know we all may know the most known memory verse in the bible which is John 3:16 ” For God so Love the world that he gave his only son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.” but it shows how exaggerated his love is. He gave his only son to die for our sins.
1 John 4:9-10 “God showed how much he loved us by sending his one and only Son into the world so that we might have eternal life through him.This is real love—not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as a sacrifice to take away our sins.”
