"What Love Really Means" by JJ Heller ~ Then Sings My Soul Saturday



I heard this song by JJ Heller on the way home from running an errand last night and although I'm supposed to be resting my voice, I found myself singing along.  I just love her voice.....there's something about it.......sweet & pure, somewhat folksy, honest and earthy.  I love the fact that she's an independent artist and the music she writes is always so uplifting.  I even found her blog while searching for her site.....The Lovely Little Things, which only makes me like her more ~ she's a crafty mama just like me!  ; )


(Mute the auto music player at the bottom of the page to hear the song.)


Who else can love us the way HE can......the very one who created us???

"For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother's womb"...Psalm 139:13

"I will praise you; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvelous are your works; and that my soul knows right well......"Psalm 139:14

What a beautiful and glorious day it will be when we experience the fulfillment of our deepest heart's longing to be with the ONE who made us, who knows us intimately....our every action, every thought....and loves us still ~ with an all-cosuming perfect love that surpasses all others.

"O LORD, you have searched me and you know me.
You know when I sit and when I rise; you perceive my thoughts from afar.
You discern my going out and my lying down; you are familiar with all my ways.
Before a word is on my tongue you know it completely, O LORD.
You hem me in—behind and before; you have laid your hand upon me.
Such knowledge is too wonderful for me, too lofty for me to attain.".....Psalm 139:1-6

As I was reading Psalm 139: 1-6, I immediately recalled another song about the initmate way that God knows us.....I can't remember the last time I heard it but I remember every word...."He Knows My Name" written by Tommy Walker....sung in this video by the Maranatha Singers..... 
 



♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥

Until the day when I'll see Him face to face, I will rest secure in His promises for my future and in the peace and knowledge that He knows MY name......and I know HIS.

"Because he loves me," says the LORD, "I will rescue him;
I will protect him, for he acknowledges my name.
 He will call upon me, and I will answer him;
I will be with him in trouble,  I will deliver him and honor him.
 With long life will I satisfy him and show him my salvation."....Psalm 91: 14-16
