This song was born out of one of my many darkest nights of the soul.
I was wrestling with questions & finding myself somewhere in between my doubts & my beliefs.
Broken, I was crying out to God—if He was even there—in what felt like an empty sky, potentially doubting the very essence of all that my existence hinges on…but, maybe He is out there, just miles & miles away in outer space having nothing to do with me or any of His creation. Either way, if God doesn’t exist or is nowhere to be found, then who was I talking to? Myself? The voices in my head?
Slowly, soft answers, that eventually brought enough comfort that I was able to drift off to sleep in my sleepless night, began to pour over me.
I am loved. By an unending love like no other. Somehow, it isn’t a matter of deserving it or earning it. It just…exists. Period.
This love came long before I ever showed up.
This love is continually bleeding out for me.
This love breaks me down & builds me up.
