I Feel My Savior's Love

I am not one to share real personal things but I had an experience a week or so ago that really made me know without a shadow of a doubt that I am loved- even if I don't always feel it.

There is a Kenneth Cope song that without a doubt makes me cry EVERY SINGLE TIME I hear it. It doesn't matter what kind of mood I'm in- tears will just start flowing. I was having a particularly bad night and was feeling more depressed than I ever have felt when this song came on. It touched me to the core! I was able to pull myself up by the bootstraps and feel that overwhelming feeling of love that if I didn't matter to a single other soul that I mattered to HIM.

The song is called Broken. Here is a cool video of it. Be patient the video starts after the intro.

And here are the words...

Broken Clouds give Rain.
Broken soil grows grain.
Broken bread feeds man for one more day.

Broken storms yield light.
The break of day heals night.
Broken pride turns blindness into sight.

Broken souls that need his mending.
Broken hearts for offering.
Could it be that God loves broken things?

Broken chains set free.
Broken swords bring peace.
Broken walls make friends of you and me.

To break the ranks of sin.
To break the news of Him.
To put on Christ til His name feels broken in.

Broken souls that need His mending.
Broken hearts for offering.
I believe that God loves broken things!

And yet our broken faith-our broken promises
sent love to the cross.
And still that broken flesh-that broken heart of His
offers us such grace and mercy.
Covers us with love undeserving.

This broken soul that cries for mending.
This broken heart for offering.
I'm convinced that God loves broken Me!
Praise His name-my God loves broken things.

So broken cloud give rain.
and broken soil give grain.
Broken bread feed man for one more day.
