The Sidewalk Prophets are right It Gets Personal

I heard a great piece of music the other day on the radio, hadn't heard it before at least not the whole thing, just snippets. I thought wow that sounds kind of country western like....some of the newer stuff like Rascal Flatts sort of stuff. What appealed to me about the song wasn't the music although it was good, it was the lyric that struck at my heart strings. The song is about my Lord Jesus and some of what He went through for me. Just following is the specific lyric I am referring to and also the video down below....

Oh Lord, how You love me
I am the thorn in Your crown
But You love me anyway
I am the sweat from Your brow
But You love me anyway
I am the nail in Your wrist
But You love me anyway
I am Judas’ kiss
But You love me anyway

Metaphorically speaking I too am all these things. But thanks be to God I am something else also...I am the woman with the issue of blood, I am the man with the withered hand, I am Mary and Martha, I am the fearful fishermen. The Bible tells us that God loves us and did go to extreme lengths to rescue us from our sin and inability to measure up to His Holy standard. Not only did He do this, but wants us to live in dependence upon Him. He wants us to trust Him and allow Him to display His power in our lives if we would but touch His robe believing that whatever the affliction, that He has the power to deal with it. Stretch forth your hand and believe, Jesus has what we need. When we are without faith He is still faithful, when we are afraid He is fearless. He wants us to know that He cares about us, He said "I am the resurrection and the life; he who believes in Me will live even if he dies, and everyone who lives and believes in Me will never die. Do you believe this?" John 11:25-26

I love this song by the Sidewalk Prophets and I am there with them...I am the Thorn, I am the sweat, I am the nail, I am Judas' kiss. And yes He loved me anyway, and He proved it.... with His arms opened wide.
