I wrote this song the day before Valentines Day. I felt like God was just touching my heart that whole day. I'm sure many of you have heard it, but the song Word of God Speak by Mercy Me had been playing over through my mind for a few days before then. That Sunday the pastor at our church said something that I won't ever forget. After the song service his words were, " This morning when we were singing, were you singing from your heart? Or were you just singing along because that's what everyone else was doing? Did you then begin counting down the hours until you got home so you can eat some dinner? Or did you just pour your heart out into worshiping God?" I go to a small church in Louisiana and honestly that particular morning everyone seemed to be ready to get out of there as soon as possible. That just broke my heart. Later that day some scriptures from the sermon that morning kept coming to mind. All of those scriptures that came to my mind was either talking about what love is, the love we should have for one another, or Gods love for us. Well I wanted to memorize some of those scriptures so I highlighted them in my bible(I know you shouldn't write in your bible but I think it's okay as long as your just highlighing a verse and not just randomly coloring in it:). After doing that I just had a sudden urge to play guitar. I played around for a second and had some chords that sounded alright together. Before I knew it I had a song put together. Now I'm kind of a shy person so I waited a few days until I showed anyone and honestly this is a big step for me to post this. I just wanted to say that none of this would have been possible without God. He is my everything and I just love and adore him so much! Please don't think that I posted this to just show off or be like oh look at what I did. Because I promise you that is not at all what I am thinking, nor is it the purpose of this song. I just want to glorify God because he is so WORTHY to be praised. I hope and pray that this love song will touch your heart. Whatever you may be going through just remember that God is with you:) and he will never leave nor forsake you! God bless you everyone:)
