Because


This morning as we were getting ready for the day, the radio was playing in the background.  Usually, it is background noise and I am not consciously aware of the talk or the music playing.  However these lyrics sung by Celine Dion (written by Diane Warren) caught my attention:

You were my strength when I was weak
You were my voice when I couldn’t speak
You were my eyes when I couldn’t see
You saw the best there was in me
Lifted me up when I couldn’t reach
You gave me faith ‘coz you believed
I’m everything I am
Because you loved me

I am not sure who the song is about or if it is a general reflection on as Huey Lewis sang, “The Power of Love.”  As I heard it this morning, I immediately thought about the love God has for me. Look at the chorus line by line:

  • You were my strength when I was weak: “My power is made perfect in ipad 015weakness.” 2Co 12:8
  • You were my voice when I couldn’t speak: ” . . . but the Spirit intercedes fir us with groanings to deep for words.” Rom 8:26
  • You were my eyes when I couldn’t see: “For we walk by faith and not by sight.” 2Co 5:7
  • You saw the best that was in me“But God shows His love for us while we were 
  • still sinners . . .” Rom 5:8
  • Lifted me up when I couldn’t reach: “I can do all things through Him who strengthens me.” Phi 4:13
  • You gave be faith ‘coz you believed: “Greater love has no one that this, that someone lay down his life for his friends.” John 15:13
  • I am everything I am Because you loved me: “In this is love, not that we have loved God but that he loved us and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins. Beloved, if God so loved us, we also ought to love one another. 1Jn 4:10-11

Thank you God for your love and your grace.  Thank you for loving me and by love leading be to be more than I could be without you. In Jesus’ name . . .

In Christ Alone,

Scott
