You Love Me Anyway

I was listening to music whilst I worked on assignments and wedding stuff this morning, and this song by the Sidewalk Prophets came on. I found myself stopping my work and listening intently to the lyrics as it reached the bridge. 

Y'know, sometimes, I think, we get so caught up in life, we forget the enormity of who we really are, and what Christ has truly done for us. 
I am a thorn in Your crown
But You love me anywayI am the sweat from Your brow
But You love me anywayI am the nail in Your wrist
But You love me anywayI am Judas’ kiss
But You love me anyway
See now, I am the man who yelled out from the crowd 
For Your blood to be spilled on this earth shaking ground
Yes then I turned away with the smile on my face
With this sin in my heart tried to bury Your grace
And then alone in the night I still called out for You
So ashamed of my life, 
But You love me anyway

It’s like nothing in life that I’ve ever known
Yes, You love me anyway
Oh, Lord, how You love me

Isn't that a powerful reminder?! I so needed that today. Thank You, Jesus, for what You have done for me and my brothers and sisters, thought we are the thorns in Your crown and Judas' kiss. Thank You.
