Your Love Makes Me See Who I Really Am

This song overwhelms me with the reality of God’s grace in my life.

I Need You To Love Me by Barlow Girl

Why, why are You still here with me
Didn’t You see what I’ve done?
In my shame I want to run and hide myself
But it’s here I see the truth
I don’t deserve You

[Chorus:]
But I need You to love me, and I
I won’t keep my heart from You this time
And I’ll stop this pretending that I can
Somehow deserve what I already have
I need You to love me

I, I have wasted so much time
Pushing You away from me
I just never saw how You could cherish me
‘Cause You’re a God who has all things
And still You want me

Your love makes me forget what I have been
Your love makes me see who I really am
Your love makes me forget what I have been

I’m Overwhelmed….by His grace.  His unmerited favor.  a gift from God.  Unearned.  Undeserved. God “favors” me.  He accepts me.  I didn’t earn it.  I can’t repay Him.   He’s a God who has all things, and still He wants me.  wow.
