Drops in the Ocean

For today’s post, I wanted to do something a little different from what we normally do. I wanted to show you a new song you may or may not have heard. Introducing “Drops in the Ocean”, by Hawk Nelson:

Take a look at the first verse:

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

Jesus wants you as you are, not what you should be. He loves you and wants you to come to him without a guard. He wants all of you, not some of you. He doesn’t care about the shame you’re in. It breaks His heart to see you in that much pain.

Then comes the main part of the song:

If you want to know
How far my love can go
Just how deep, just how wide
If want to see
How much you mean to me
Look at my hands, look at my side
If you could count the times I say you are forgiven
It’s more than the drops in the ocean

Jesus’ love for us is so great it cannot be fathomed. We say that so easily, but we rarely slow down and take time to chew on what that really means. He loves you so much that He died for you. Look at His hands, looks at His side. If you could count the times that He forgives you, it’s more than the drops in the ocean.

So if you’re struggling with the question of if God still loves you and cares for you after all the sin that you’ve done and after all the times that you’ve messed up, just listen to this song. It says it all.

In Christ,

Howdy! I’m Collin, 16 years old, and a homeschooled junior. I play the piano, ukulele, and many sports. I’m far from perfect, and that’s why I love to share (through this blog) what God is showing me in His word. Although I have many favorite Bible verses, if I had to choose one it would be Romans 12:12, Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer.” I believe that prayer is the most powerful tool we are given as Christians and it should not be taken for granted. Toodles!
