She Loved Much

I heard a song yesterday called ‘Have I told you lately that I love you,’ written by Scotty Wiseman in 1945. Great love tunes are birthed out of sweet romance between two people falling in love. The next stanza goes, ‘have I told you with all my heart and soul how I adore you? Well, darling I’m telling you now.’ You know, those words brought me up short! When was the last time I sat in daddy-God’s lap, pouring out my adoration for Him? Exuberantly emoting how much I honor and worship the Maker of my life. Couldn’t remember.

Right then and there, flat-out, facedown I gave my Gracious Father full attention with no distractions. In broken-voice and singing warped melody, I hallowed His presence:

Have I told you lately that I love you?

(Lord, You mean more to me than anything or anyone else)

Could I tell you once again somehow?

(Sometimes I get so confused I forget You)

Have I told you with all my heart and soul how I adore you?

(But, I do cherish You with every fiber of my being)

Well darling, I’m telling you now.

(Jesus, you are my life)

My heart would break in two if you should leave me

(No danger of that happening. You’ll never leave nor forsake me (Hebrews 13:5)

I’m no good without you anyhow

(For I know that in me (that is, in my flesh) dwells no good thing (Romans 7:18).

Have I told you with all my heart and soul how I adore you?

(Thank you dear Savior for first loving me, so that I could love You back)

Well darling, I’m telling you now

(Most Holy God, Son, Spirit—three in one, teach me how to love You)

Whoever you are, I wonder if you’d take time right now to privately meet with your Creator. Just let go and tell Him how much He means to you without asking anything in return. It does wonders for the soul, at times—just to cleanse your mind and really concentrate on the most important Person in your life. Remember the sinful woman with the alabaster box of expensive perfume? Silently, tearfully, she broke it open and anointed Jesus’ feet, washing them with her tears, wiping them with her hair. Jesus said of her, “Her sins, which are many, are forgiven; for she loved much” (Luke 7:47a KJV). We see here, the simple but heart-felt things mean the most to Christ. He delights in our devoted hearts.

    Very meaningful way of expressing love and devotion to our Lord and Redeemer. Thanks for sharing with us the importance of taking the time to offer Him our adoration. Just as we like words of love and appreciation spoken to us, so much more is our God deserving of these very things from our heart and lips. 🙂

    I like the fresh perspective you gave to a song so old. Everyday we truly need to fall in love with Jesus all over again.
