some simple words



I hear you say “MY LOVE IS OVER, IT’S UNDERNEATH. IT’S INSIDE, IT’S IN BETWEEN. THE TIMES YOU DOUBT ME, WHEN YOU CAN’T FEEL. THE TIMES THAT YOU QUESTION, “IS THIS FOR REAL?” THE TIMES YOU’RE BROKEN, THE TIMES THAT YOU MEND. THE TIMES YOU HATE ME, AND THE TIMES THAT YOU BEND. MY LOVE IS OVER, IT’S UNDERNEATH. IT’S INSIDE, IT’S IN BETWEEN. THE TIMES YOU’RE HEALING, AND WHEN YOUR HEART BREAKS. THE TIMES THAT YOU FEEL LIKE YOU’VE FALLEN FROM GRACE. THE TIMES YOU’RE HURTING, THE TIMES THAT YOU HEAL. THE TIMES YOU GO HUNGRY AND ARE TEMPTED TO STEAL. IN TIMES OF CONFUSION, CHAOS AND PAIN. I’M THERE IN YOUR SORROW, UNDER THE WEIGHT OF YOUR SHAME. I’M THERE THROUGH YOUR HEARTACHE, I’M THERE IN THE STORM. MY LOVE I WILL KEEP YOU, BY MY POWER ALONE. I DON’T CARE WHERE YOU’VE FALLEN, WHERE YOU HAVE BEEN. I’LL NEVER FORSAKE YOU, MY LOVE NEVER ENDS. 
IT NEVER ENDS.”
-Tenth Avenue North, Times

I really needed this song today. It's been on repeat. I played it on guitar a couple of times. I wrote "My love is over, it's underneath" on my hand in bright blue marker in big, bold letters. You see, sometimes I feel like a wreck at life. Like I mess up all the time and I can't do anything right, This song has been reminding me that God has enough grace and love for me... and that I can go to Him anytime.
