Everything comes back to His love. I am moved every time I hear the words to this song. It really says it all. He loves us and wants us to know Him. His love isn't based on our works or our gifts. No, His love is pure and an open invitation for every one of us. I am so grateful to know His love. I am so grateful for His grace. I will fall short every single time on my own and I am slowly learning that this is more than okay. His grace is what I see now instead of failure. It is in these moments of brokenness I am humbled. I realize just how much I need Him. The world often feels like a magnet trying to pull me away and I need Him to bring me back to this place with Him. To the only place I truly find rest, peace, and contentment. And because of His love and grace, I want to love others more. I can see other's hurts instead of faults and I want to offer grace instead of accusations; yet some days I still fall to my flesh and need the reminder of Him. It is because of His love for us, that the darkest days are overcome with Light. And it is because of His infallible love that I can trust in Him and his provision for my life; even when the path seems uncertain and hopeless.

Yes, everything comes back to His love.

“He is jealous for me, love's like a hurricane, I am a tree
Bending beneath the weight of His wind and mercy.
When all of a sudden, I am unaware of these afflictions eclipsed by glory
And I realize just how beautiful You are and how great your affections are for me.

Oh, how He loves us 
Oh, how He loves us
How He loves us all.

And We are His portion and He is our prize,
Drawn to redemption by the grace in His eyes.
If His grace is an ocean, we're all sinking.
And heaven meets earth like an unforeseen kiss and my heart turns violently inside of my chest.
I don't have time to maintain these regrets when I think about the way He loves us.”
