Even Though

  Even Though (C.Wells)
 We’ve watched the house fall - right before our eyes,  we have seen countless  children die
We have wept tears at - the end of dreams, no one is free here from suffering
But the life we gain through Christ cannot be taken

 Even though we lose it all, we’ll not be lost, we’ll not be lost
Behold, this love of God has ransomed us, He’s ransomed us
Even though

We’ve been the lepers outside the gate,  we were the poor man without a name
The unfaithful woman falling at His feet, I am the unloveable and He came for me
His arms are fastened firmly round us now

Chorus again
 We had nothing when He found us, we had nothing to recommend us
His grace is like an ocean, His gifts are overflowing
He will care for those who know Him, His promises are certain
We will not walk alone

I don't know about you but I get probably 40-50 some request for prayer a day on my facebook wall from all over the world.  Friends with dying family members, families who have lost it all because of a job loss.  Children being abused,  spouses left to care for children after their mate walks out.  Family and friends who are battling cancer.  Prayer request for missionaries for wisdom, strength to continue on in the face of danger.  On top of that there is the news, families grieving for their love one on a missing plane.  Soldiers fighting wars across the sea,  countries in civil war.  Tornadoes, hurricanes, earthquakes (just had one today here in southern California), disasters everywhere.  Everything we hold valuable can be taken from us here in a moment here on this earth.        EXCEPT HIS LOVE. 

Roman 8:35-       Who will separate us from the love of Christ?  Will tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword?  Verse 38 For I am convinced that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor things present, nor things to come, nor powers, verse 30 nor height, nor depth, nor any other created thing, will be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord. 

Even though you may be suffering at this moment, even though you may feel separated from God because of your suffering,   you are not alone. His love follows you, pursues in you, dwells with you, keeps you, hugs you and does not forget you in your suffering. 

   Today I needed to hear the message in this song, how about you?
