There’s a little tune from the 70’s that is so simple, but powerful in its message. I remember first hearing and singing it on a youth group retreat when I was about 15. My friend Carol had invited me to attend her youth group with her and I began to hear about Jesus and His love for me. After a few visits, I was invited on the retreat. What I remember most about that weekend is the joy that the other young people in the group had. I was not a happy teenager. I didn’t have that joy and I knew I wanted what they had! Over time I began to find that joy sneaking into my heart and I realized it was because I was letting God into my life. The more I learned about Him, the more the joy entered my heart. I had come face to face with the loving Creator and I was never going to be the same. I was changing from the inside out because of God’s love. So today, I’m telling you that God loves you. Please, take Him at His word. “God is not a man, that He should lie, Nor a son of man, that He should repent. Has He said, and will He not do? Or has He spoken, and will He not make it good?” (Numbers 23:19)
He who does not love does not know God, for God is love. (1 John 4:6)
There are only a few videos of this song on YouTube and this is the one that sounds most like I remember hearing it: https://youtu.be/XAhZcnfrSNk
Please note: I don’t know anything about this video or the people singing, I just found it through a search on YouTube.
