Reckless Love

A couple weeks ago, I listened to my sweet friend lead worship, and the melody and words of a song I’d never heard soaked into me. The phrase “the overwhelming, never-ending, reckless love of God” shook me. How often I take that same love for granted. I’ve experienced it intensely, yet there are times I momentarily set aside the truth of God’s love for me. And for others. I am glad God is just and merciful and forgiving and corrective. I don’t know how, but he encompasses all of those things. He is all of those things. They are all a part of his love. He doesn’t stop pursuing us no matter how close or far away from him we are.

Before I spoke a word, You were singing over me
You have been so, so good to me
Before I took a breath, You breathed Your life in me
You have been so, so kind to me

O, the overwhelming, never-ending, reckless love of God
O, it chases me down, fights ’til I’m found, leaves the ninety-nine
I couldn’t earn it, and I don’t deserve it, still, You give Yourself away
O, the overwhelming, never-ending, reckless love of God, yeah

When I was Your foe, still Your love fought for me
You have been so, so good to me
When I felt no worth, You paid it all for me
You have been so, so kind to me
