Thankful Thursday

Iris of Grace Alone talked about music today in her Thankful Thursday post. She said music is huge part of her life and I can totally relate, my husband being the worship leader in our church and me as one of the back-up singers, music has played a big role in our personal and spiritual life. And today I am thankful for this one particular song that never fails to bring me back to God's love every time I feel like I'm moving away from Him. Thank you Lord for your  

STUBBORN LOVE.
(Kathy Troccoli)

Caught again. Your faithless friend.
Don't You ever tire of hearing
What a fool I've been?
Guess I should pray,
But what can I say?
Oh, it hurts to know the hundred times
I've caused You pain.

The "forgive me" sounds so empty
When I never change.
Yet You stay and say, "I love you still,"
Forgiving me time and time again.


CHORUS:
It's Your stubborn love
That never lets go of me.
I don't understand how You can stay -
Perfect love embracing the worst in me
How I long for Your stubborn love.


Funny me.
Just couldn't see
Even long before I knew You,
You were loving me.
Sometimes I cry -
You must cry, too
when You see the broken promises
I've made to you.
I keep saying that I'll trust You
Though I seldom do.
Yet You stay and say You love me still,
Knowing some day I'll be like You.

Had never heard that song before. Beautiful song - bittersweet. It tears at the heart to think of hurting (disappointing) my Lord. Still I too thank Him for never giving up on me - how I need His stubborn love...

Blessings,
