Quick recap of the weekend and an awesome song!

Happy Sunday friends! I adore Sundays!! I love my church and by beginning my week with my church family really helps me put everything together for the week to come and to focus on what truly matters!! So I hope y'all had a wonderful Sunday and are ready for a great week! :)
I haven't blogged since Wednesday and I totally intended on blogging if not daily at least every other day! This past week just got away from me! We are in full swing of baseball season which means counting the past weekend, the next three weekends we have tournaments Thursday - Saturday! On top of soccer and softball games...good times people, good times! I spent so much time with high school boys this weekend that by the end I was delirious and laughing at their immature jokes and cracking fart jokes. {Okay not really, but still...I needed today to remind myself that I am in fact a 31 year old woman!} Those boys sure do make me laugh though and are some of the sweetest kids ever.
Saturday night after the games were over, I got to spend some time with one of my favorite families and just catch up! God has truly blessed me with so many people that are wonderful in my life!
 
Which brings me to my song...we sang it in church today after we took the Lord's Supper. Going on a tangent, how awesome and moving is it to partake in the Lord's Supper? I always find myself with chills and such emotion during that time and can truly feel the Spirit's presence among my fellow believers. We sang a bunch of awesome songs {as we always do} today, but this one just stood out to me and reminded me how abundent God's grace is!  Here are the lyrics and the YouTube video!
 
 
He is jealous for me,
Loves like a hurricane, I am a tree,
Bending beneath the weight of his wind and mercy.
When all of a sudden,
I am unaware of these afflictions eclipsed by glory,
And I realize just how beautiful You are,
And how great Your affections are for me.
And oh, how He loves us oh,
Oh how He loves us,
How He loves us all
He is jealous for me,
Loves like a hurricane, I am a tree,
Bending beneath the weight of his wind and mercy.
When all of a sudden,
I am unaware of these afflictions eclipsed by glory,
And I realize just how beautiful You are,
And how great Your affections are for me.
Oh how he loves,
Yeah, He loves us,
Oh! how He loves us,
Oh! how He loves us,
Oh! how He loves.
And we are His portion and He is our prize,
Drawn to redemption by the grace in His eyes,
If His grace is an ocean, we're all sinking.
And Heaven meets earth like an unforeseen kiss,
And my heart turns violently inside of my chest,
I don't have time to maintain these regrets,
When I think about, the way...
Oh, how He loves us oh,
Oh how He loves us,
How He loves us all
How He loves
Yeah, He loves us,
Oh! how He loves us,
Oh! how He loves us,
Oh how He loves.
Oh what love
Yeah, He loves us,
Oh! how He loves us,
Oh! how He loves us,
Oh! how He loves us so.
I've bolded this line: If His grace is an ocean, we're all sinking. It's my favorite! What a lyric! This is how we should be...drowning in His grace, because it is sufficient and abundant! I've heard this song a million times on the radio, but it wasn't until today that it just hit me. I'm making this song my prayer this week, a gentle reminder that He loves us unconditionally and with such an overwhelming grace it's something we should cherish. I just listened to the song again and read the lyrics, the lyrics describe excactly how I feel when I think about how much He loves, no matter what and yet we push Him to the side all.the.time. He deserves to be loved the way He loves, yet understands we're human and still gives us unconditional love!  
 
Check back tomorrow to see how I did on my 5 for Five...it was a rough week so we shall see!!
 
xoxo,
