Grace overtook me today.  Snuck right up on me and tackled me to the ground, then powerwashed me good.  Powerwashed me with His great love.  All this happened right there in my pastor’s wife seat on the front row of church.  No one around me suspected a thing.  They didn’t know that during this last month of crazy, chaotic house remodeling, and Mama moving stress, I was NOT at my Jesus lovin’ best.  But, thank God, Jesus was still at His Elizabeth lovin’ best.  Today He just about drowned me in it…His love washed over me like I was standing under Niagara Falls. I’m so, so, so grateful.

He is jealous for me,
Loves like a hurricane, I am a tree,
Bending beneath his wind and mercy.
When all of a sudden,
I am unaware of these afflictions eclipsed by glory,
And I realise just how beautiful You are,
And how great Your affections are for me.

We are His portion and He is our prize,
Drawn to redemption by the grace in His eyes,
If grace is an ocean, we’re all sinking.
So Heaven meets earth like a sloppy wet kiss,
And the heart turns violently inside of my chest,
I don’t have time to maintain this regrets,
When I think about, the way…

He loves us,
Oh how He loves us,
Oh how He loves us,
Oh how He loves.
Yeah, He loves us,
Oh how He loves us,
Oh how He loves us,
Oh how He loves.
How He Loves by John Mark McMillan
