my prodigal self.

have you ever warred with God?


did something He told you not to do, and then had to suffer the consequences?


I'm sure we all have at one time or another. 


sometimes I feel like I'm I'm the worst prodigal daughter out there simply because I don't listen. 


like this week, I was really struggling 'cause ... well, just 'cause. 


ANYWAY.


I stumbled upon this song and the lyrics reached the depth of my soul. 


I've tasted Your glory and I left it there.
You poured out Your Spirit and I didn't care.
Still you loved me

I've lived for myself with nobody to blame.
I took what You gave me and squandered Your grace. 
Still You loved me.
Nothing compares to what You've done for me
Nothing compares to what You've done for me.

I could live for the broken and carry their pain. 
I could die like a martyr or live like a saint just to love You.
I could sing like the angels and gather Your praise:
Be blessed beyond measure and give it away just to love You.
Still nothing compares to what You've done for me.
Nothing compares to what You've done for me.

My heart has been broken; I've laid out my shame.
Because of Your mercy,
All I can say is I love You.
And I will tell of Your story
I'll carry Your name
I'll live for Your glory Lord,
I'll share in Your pain just to love You.
For nothing compares to what You've done for me.
Nothing compares to what YouԶe done for me.

Nothing can separate us
Nothing can separate us
Not death or life
Or depth or height
Or unseen power
Now or ever!



I dunno why, I just wanted to share that. 

maybe someone else is feeling borderline hopeless. 

just remember, although we may be prodigals, God always wants us back. (:

the end.
