God's Love Hasn't Grown Cold
I just recently purchased Bethany Dillon's latest CD entitled "Imaginations." Have you heard it? I actually purchased it for one song. I was speaking with a friend last weekend who told me about it. This song is called "My Love Hasn't Grown Cold." Check out the lyrics:
You shake your head What is so hard to believe? When you are in your bed I sing over you the sweetest things Because oh, my love does not tire I'm awake when the moon is full And I know the times when you feel lost And you just aren't sure Lo and behold My love hasn't grown cold For you You cold steal away in the middle of the night And hide in the light of day While you cloak yourself in the darkest lies But oh my love, it swims in the deepest oceans of fear And as soon as you lower your head I am here Lo and behold My love hasn't grown cold For you If only you could see How heaven stills when you speak I know all your days And I have wrapped you in mystery And oh, my love for you Is as wide as the galaxies Just hold out your hand and close your eyes And come be with me Lo and behold My love hasn't grown cold For you
I absolutely love those words. This song is not about my love for God growing cold, but about how His love does not grow cold for me. Sometimes it’s easy for me to think that God has put me on the back burner and forgotten about me, but His love hasn’t grown cold. Try this.... Purchase this song off iTunes and then listen to it while laying on the floor face up toward the sky. Let His love cover you. You are the beloved of God. Rest in that....
