Music on my mind

Well, it covers us like rain
It washes and it stains
Poured out from heaven's cup
For you and me to drink it up
And in stubborn spite of my stubborn spite
I am loved nonetheless
I am loved all the more
And I believe there is love enough for the taking

From "Love Enough (or The Ballad of Hansberry Brown)" by Andrew Peterson

Especially the line "in stubborn spite of my stubborn spite / I am loved nonetheless". That line just repeats in my head the last few weeks. It is so descriptive of me. And so amazingly true. I am loved.

Wow.

I love that song! I love that line, too.

What a great song. Andrew's music saved me more than once this past year, reminded me of why I believe what I say I believe when I didn't see any reason not to walk away from it all.

From the clips he has played me of his new songs and what I heard when I dropped by the studio during recording, the new record will be just as good. I can't wait to hear the whole thing.

It is such a catchy line - it literally has been repeating in my head nearly constantly for the last few days/weeks (but not in a drive me crazy sorta way). Every time I hear it in my mind I am humbled again, both at my sin and at God's love.

Great stuff.
