# 1 One Year Ago This Week:
“Nobody Loves Me Like You” – Chris Tomlin
Zach Williams holds on at # 1 this week with his “Rescue Story”, but Matthew West could soon replace him with another track that was slow to grow on me. I love the words that begin “The God Who Stays”:
♫ If I were You
I would’ve given up on me by now
I would’ve labeled me a lost cause
‘Cause I feel just like a lost cause
If I were You
I would’ve turned around and walked away
I would’ve labeled me beyond repair
‘Cause I feel like I’m beyond repair
But somehow You don’t see me like I do
Somehow You’re still here ♫
I don’t understand why God chose me. I don’t understand why He rescued me. I was a lost cause. I was beyond repair. But He did rescue me. He did save me. I didn’t deserve it. But He gave me the gift of Grace. I accepted it. He took away all of my sins. He wiped the slate clean – as white as snow. He said, “Follow me.” I did. I am born again, but not to a life that will quickly end. My new life will last forever because it comes from the eternal living Word of God.
Jesus Christ wants a relationship with you. Do you want one with Him ? He’s waiting for you. When you are ready He will be there. As long as you are living and breathing it is not too late. But know this. Tomorrow is not guaranteed.
You are not too far away from God’s reach. Reach out for God. He will lift you out of the pit of despair – out of the mud and the mire. He will set your feet on solid ground and steady you as you walk along. He will give you a new song to sing – a hymn of praise to our God. Many will see what He has done and be amazed. They will put their trust in the LORD.
This concludes another weekend of blog posts. I’ll do it again next weekend – with 4 new entries on Thursday, Friday, Sunday, and Monday. I don’t blog on Saturdays. That’s my day of rest.
