Sometimes I Fall Short....But He Still Loves Me

I woke up with this song on my heart this morning. I have been so grateful for all of the things that God has blessed me with, but at times, I know that I haven't been the best example of His love, or of my christian walk.

I am just thankful that even in the times that I stumble and disappoint him, or myself, that he still loves me. The song is from "The Fighting Temptations". I hope you enjoy the video.

The Lyrics:

Took me awhile, but i`m finally here

So I just wanna testify, make it crystal clear

See I`ve been picked out, to be picked on

Talked about out my friend`s mouth

I`ve been beat down, til` he turned my life around

Seems like I always fall short of being worthy

Cuz I ain`t good enough, but he still loves me

I ain`t no superstar, the spot light ain`t shinin` on me

Cuz I ain`t good enough, but he still loves me

I used to, wake up somedays, and wished I had stayed asleep

Cuz I went to bed on top of the world, today the world is on top of me

Now everybody`s got opinions (They Share)

They ain`t been in my position (They Dont Care)

But it breaks my heart when I hear what they

Have to say about me

Seems like we always fall short

of being worthy

Cuz I ain`t good enough,(no no) but he still loves me (but you still love me Lord)

I ain`t no superstar

the spot light ain`t shinin` on me (but I wanna be for you)

Cuz I ain`t good enough, but he still loves me

I`m not perfect

Yes I do wrong

I`m trying my best

But It aint good enough

Shunned by the world

If I don`t succeed

Cuz I aint good enough

But he still loves me

If you ain`t worth just raise your hands

And let me know that you understand

(That we are all so blessed to be loved....loved)

(Stand for him and fall for anything

Cuz through his eyes we all look the same

What would we do, without blame?)

Seems like we always fall short

of being worthy (We are not worthy, no)

Cuz I ain`t good enough,(no) but he still loves me (I ain`t good enough, I ain`t good enough)

I ain`t no superstar,(I ain`t no superstar)

the spot light ain`t shinin` on me (but I wanna be for you Lord)

Cuz I ain`t good enough, but he still loves me (me, me, me)

No I ain`t good enough (No, No, No, No)

But he still loves me (Raise your hands if you understand)

No I ain`t good enough (How he blesses you, cuz he blessed me too)

But he still loves me (Even though I ain`t worthy)

No I aint good enough (You ain`t worthy, he`s there for you)

But he stil loves me (No matter what I do)

No I aint good enough (I ain`t good enooooooooough)

But he stil loves.....me (But the Lord still loves...me)

Hugh- sometimes the process can be painful at times, but at least He lets us know that he loves us, even as we try to change to become more like Him.

Derrick- my heart is to do what he asks me to do, even though it isn't easy at times, and I struggle with being obedient to his voice.

Alecia-You are right my friend.  He does love you where you are and how blessed we all are to be apart of the person you are.  When you say "God Bless You",  I have been blessed indeed.  Thank you my friend for being apart of my life.

Alecia..... I am sure the song is reminding you of Gods forgivness....... and how He does not judge you just according to  what you may have done, but your intentions, motives and the whole ball of wax....

Pleading the blood of the Messiah is a good start to getting things taken care of, BUT.... confessing and repenting is where it is at...

It is doing those two things that we find our rest returned......

I love ya, sis....and I feel your pain.... I feel this is a prayer request, so I am featuring it, ok?

Yes we're not perfect and won't be till that final day. But regardless once we belong to his flock no one can take us away.
Jhn 10:29for my Father has given them to me, and he is more powerful than anyone else. So no one can take them from me.

 

Great post, GBY!

See It. Experience It. Live It.

Alecia, the Holy Spirit is working through you.  When I read you post on my blog about what our attitudes and actions say, all I could think was AMEN.  Then I saw your profile, pictures, and this post.  Julie and Midori have already said what I was going to say.  

The video was touching.  When that guy was baptised, it had me on the edge of tears.  Your taking the time to write out words to the song was nice also.   May God continue to bless you in all that you do.
