Music Monday [All This Time]

Britt Nicole's latest single was my pick for this week's Music Monday post.  There is such insight into her heart.  I love the reminder that all this time...even when we are unaware....God is, in his infinite mercy and grace, always by our side.  Not because of anything we do...because it's His character.  

I remember the moment
I remember the pain
I was only a girl
But I grew up that day
Tears were falling
I know You saw me

Hiding there in my bedroom
So alone
I was doing my best
Trying to be strong
No one to turn to
That's when I met You

All this time
From the first tear cry
To today's sunrise
And every single moment between
You were there
You were always there
It was You and I
You've been walking with me all this time

Ever since that day
it's been clear to me
That no matter what comes
You will never leave
I know You're for me
And You're restoring

Every heartache and failure
Every broken dream
You're the God who sees
The God who rescued me
This is my story
This is my story

I hear these people asking me
How do I know what I believe?
Well I'm not the same me
And I saw the proof I need
I felt Love I felt Your grace
You stole my heart that day

There are a lot of situations that would cause one to "grow up".  The day I accepted Christ was my "grow up" day.  But even before I started living for God, I know that God was with me.  God pursues as I learned in Hosea.  He will go to great lengths surround us with His love.  He wants our attention, devotion, and worship back.  And in every broken dream, every heartache, every failure...God is still by our side.  He doesn't give up on us.  

 Let His relentless love steal your heart today.
