"How He Loves" by David Crowder Band

Jack's Take

“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." - David Crowder Band
 
I saw a study that said what made the most impact on college football players was six little words from their parents. They are, “I love to watch you play.” The kids who received this positive affirmation from their parents were generally excelling not only on the football field, but also in the classroom. They knew they were loved. It made a difference.
 
I made sure this past weekend I said those six words to my son before his game. Brady is seven and is really just learning what offense and defense does. 
 
I said, “Buddy, you know what? I love to watch you play.” He just looked up at me and gave me his funny smile, and I was reminded once more that time with this little guy is short.
 
I picked “How he Loves” by the David Crowder Band because He (God) loves to watch us play!  He loves to watch us work, watch us serve, watch us fail and try again. He loves to watch us reach for him, and He loves to watch us trust him. OH, HOW HE LOVES US!

"How He Loves" Lyrics
 

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 from 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 all
How He loves
 
Yeah, He loves us, oh, how He loves us
Oh, how He loves us, oh how He loves
Oh, I love
 
Yeah, He loves us, yeah, He loves us
How He loves us, oh, how He loves us all
