  • ♫ Love Me (What Love Really Means)

    oneLoveRemainsHappy Sunday evening.

    I recently discovered the talented JJ Heller. Her song Love Me (aka What Love Really Means) pulls at the heart strings, and illustrates a wonderful picture of how God is the only one who can truly demonstrate unconditional love to us.

    He cries in the corner where nobody sees
    He’s the kid with the story
    No one would believe
    He prays every night
    “Dear God won’t you please
    Could you send someone here
    Who will love me?”

    Who will love me for me
    Not for what I have done
    Or what I will become
    Who will love me for me
    ‘Cause nobody has shown me what love
    What love really means

    Her office is shrinking a little each day
    She’s the woman whose husband has run away
    She’ll go to the gym after working today
    Maybe if she was thinner
    Then he would’ve stayed
    And she says…
    Who will love me for me
    Not for what I have done
    Or what I will become
    Who will love me for me
    ‘Cause nobody has shown me what love
    What love really means
    What love really means

    He’s waiting to die as he sits all alone
    He’s a man in a cell who regrets what he’s done
    He utters a cry from the depths of his soul
    “Oh Lord, forgive me, I want to go home”

    Then he heard a voice somewhere deep inside
    And it said,
    “I know you’ve murdered and I know you’ve lied
    And I have watched you suffer all of your life
    And now that you’ll listen I’ll, I’ll tell you that I…”

    I will love you for you
    Not for what you have done
    Or what you will become
    I will love you for you
    I will give you the love
    The love that you never knew
    Love you for you
    Not for what you have done
    Or what you will become
    I will love you for you
    I will give you the love
    The love that you never knew

    We’ve all been there, right? The times when people don’t trust us despite our intentions, the times when we’re desperately worried about how others perceive us, and the times we’ve harbored so much hate in our souls that it destroyed us. But God’ll be there. I don’t know why He’ll be there. Or why He’d care. Or why His forgiveness is unimaginably endless. But I’m glad He’s there.
