Songs on Sunday ~ Drops in the Ocean ~ 5/10/15

 
 Sometimes I forget that I'm forgiven.  Some people might think that is silly.  When I'm going about my life and make a mess of things, I tend to beat myself up even after asking for forgiveness.  It sometimes seems as if I can't forgive myself.  That is why this line is my favorite line in this song:
 
"If you could count the times I'd say you are forgiven
It's more than the drops in the ocean"
 
Are you like me and find it hard to forgive yourself even though you know God has already forgiven you?  If so, let us try to remember that He will forgive us more times than there are drops in the ocean.

                 

I want you as you are not as you ought to be
Won't you lay down your guard and come to me
The shame that grips you now is crippling
It breaks my heart to see you suffering
'Cause I am for you
I'm not against you
If you wanna know how far my love can go
Just how deep
Just how wide
If you wanna see how much you mean to me
Look at my hands
Look at my side
If you could count the times I'd say you are forgiven
It's more than the drops in the ocean, ooh ooh
Don't think you need to settle for a substitute
When I'm the only love that changes you
And I am for you
I'm not against you
I am for you
I'm not against you
If you wanna know how far my love can go
Just how deep
Just how wide
If you wanna see how much you mean to me
Look at my hands
Look at my side
If you could count the times I'd say you are forgiven
It's more than the drops in the ocean
Open your heart it's time that we start again, oh oh oh
Open your heart it's time that we start again, oh oh oh
If you wanna know how far my love can go
Just how deep
Just how wide
If you wanna see how much you mean to me
Look at my hands
Look at my side
If you could count the times I'd say you are forgiven
It's more than the drops in the ocean, ooh ooh
The drops in the ocean, woah
I am for you
I'm not against you
I am for you
I'm not against you

  1. What a great contribution to my Sunday Stillness of heart! And I appreciate the name of your blog -- so much of my theology and Christian living are worked out at my kitchen sink!

  2. Yes, I do feel this way sometimes. It's funny too since one of my passwords is im4gvn. Silly us...just as long as we never forget that we really are. Thanks for posting this :)

  3. I have a hard time accepting God's grace for myself, and find it hard to forgive myself often. I am thankful that God is patient with me. Thank you for sharing at The Weekend Brew!
