I am genuinely loved

Whenever I think about Your love,
I couldn't stop thinking about YOU.
As I wake and rise up from bed,
You're already in my head.
How can it be?
I am genuinely loved.

You already satisfy my longing and desires, 
what else You can't do?
I am at rest and at peace,
waiting for Your answers,
but even it takes longer
I have joy in my heart.
How can it be?
I am genuinely loved.

Whenever I think about my life,
I couldn't stop thinking about You.
You are an awesome God 
and everything is in Your hands,
I am forever safe in Your arms.
How can it be?
I am genuinely loved.


Whenever I wait upon You,
I couldn't stop thinking about You.
You're a promise keeper and time is in Your hands.
You are a perfect God, Holy, and Loving.
My days are mere handbreadths
tomorrow I may be gone, 
but Your Word remains forever.
How can it be?
I am genuinely loved.

Whenever I think about tomorrow, 
I'm clouded by fears and worries
so I stopped thinking of it
and gaze upon Your beauty, Your wisdom, 
and Your goodness.
You're a certain God, 
Your works in the past still resonates until today.
Whom shall I fear?
How can it be?
I am genuinely loved.

Whenever I look upon the sky,
I find genuine peace.
I already have the answer-
He is my Savior; Christ is enough.
He's my everything.
Your Spirit always lift me up,
guides me, embraces me, and teaches me.
How can it be?
I am genuinely loved.

And I realized,
this is LOVE.
Nothing else, nothing less.
I couldn't measure this love
nor comprehend yet this is true,
I know it's true.

How can it be?
I am genuinely loved!


But God shows his love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.
