MORE

I love music!!  I feel like God speaks to me a lot through music.  The other day I was driving down the road singing along to a song that I know every word to.  I've heard this song lots of times.  It isn't a new song.  But sometimes I think once I learn the words to a song, I can sing the whole song and never think about what the words are saying.  But I really payed attention to the words the other day and it just really hit me.  It says, "I love you more than the sun and the stars that I taught how to shine, you are mine and you shine for me to.  I love you yesterday and today and tomorrow.  I'll say it again and again.  I love you more!"  So then I think about my parents and how much they love me and it's a lot.  Their actions over the years have shown that.  But God loves me more that I can imagine...more than I can fathom.  So God's plans for me have to be pretty cool if He loves me that much.  It is just hard to see sometimes because God's ways are not our ways, His thoughts are not are thoughts.  But we just have to trust that because God loves us this much, His plans have to be better than we can  imagine!  I'll leave you with the lyrics to the song "More".

Matthew West - More
From the album Happy

Take a look at the mountain
Stretching a mile high
Take a look at the ocean
Far as your eye can see
And think of me

Take a look at the desert
Do you feel like a grain of sand?
I am with you wherever
Where you go is where I am

And I'm always thinking of you
Take a look round you 
I'm spelling it out one by one

CHORUS:
I love you more than the sun
And the stars that I taught how to shine
You are mine, and you shine for me too
I love you yesterday and today and tomorrow
I'll say it again and again
I love your more

Just a face in the city
Just a tear on a crowded street
But you are one in a million
And you belong to me

And I want you to know
That I'm not letting go
Even when you come undone

Repeat Chorus

I love you more, yeah
Shine for me
Shine for me
Shine, you shine, you shine for me

Repeat Chorus

I love you more than the sun
And the stars that I taught how to shine
You are mine, and you shine for me too
I love you yesterday and today through the joy and the pain,
I'll say it again and again
I love you more
I love you more
I see you, and I made you
And I love you more than you can imagine
More than you can fathom
I love you more than the sun And you shine for me
