How Can It Be?

You plead my cause
You right my wrongs
You break my chains
You overcome
You gave Your life
To give me mine
You say that I am free
How can it be
How can it be

These powerful lyrics are from a new song by Lauren Daigle called How Can It Be. Her equally powerful voice is stuck in my head this morning. Click here to listen to her amazing voice sing this song that puts me on my knees in worship.

How CAN it be that I am free to live my life, but Jesus Christ was beaten beyond recognition and subjected to dying a slow painful death on a cross of shame???

How can it be that this same Jesus would love me… broken and damaged and imperfect plain old me… so much that He would carry that same cross up the hill, knowing how it was going to end???

How can it be that I just go about my every-day walking-around life as though it were mine to live?

How can it be that I do not spend every waking moment of every day of my life thanking Him for this precious gift???

How can it be that I’m sitting here in my studio, safe and warm, trying to put into words how my heart feels right now?

Everlasting love. Perfect love.
