From the recording I Love You, My Child

I wrote this song after hearing a message on Jonah.  I was so moved by the love of it is impossible for me to truly love without first allowing God to love me first.  One of my favorite verses is from Matthew 6:33.  "Seek first the kingdom of God and all his righteousness. And all these things will be added unto you."  Another one that I have come back to time and time again is Proverbs 3:5 and 6.  "Trust in the Lord with all your heart.  Lean not on your own understanding.  In all your ways, acknowledge Him and He will make your paths straight."  So, when I am feeling low or drained, I turn to God for strength.  Matthew 11: 28-30 "Come to me all who are weary and heavy laden and I will give you rest..."  I cried when I wrote this song.  After feeling so loved by God, I was able to say, "Everything is well with my soul."


I love you my child
Will you trust me with all your heart
Leaning on me, leaning on me
Will you seek me with all your heart
Turning to me, turning to me
Will you love me, with all your soul
Resting in me, resting in me
And I say,
I love you, oh my God
I trust you with all my heart
Leaning on you, leaning on you
I seek you with all my mind
Turning to you, turning to you, Lord
I love you with all my soul
Resting in you, resting in you
And God says,
I love you, I love you
I give you a clean heart and mind
I give you a new start
I give you all my rest
Because I love you
I love you
I love you
