Music: Reckless Love – Cory Asbury

I heard this song this morning for the first time and it wrecked me so intensely I began to weep/sob/ugly cry lol as I sat with a group of wonderful women.  Almost immediately, I felt a sting to my eyes as the song began, and when he sang these words, “When I felt no worth, You paid it all for me” I lost it… because the truth penetrated my soul… “There’s no wall You won’t kick down, no lie You won’t tear down, coming after me” is exactly what He’s done. Everything in the way of me being as close to and intimate with Him, He’s pushed through and broken off of me. He has never given up on me. The love I feel from Him is truly overwhelming and just simply wrecks me… no matter what I’ve felt: worthless, undeserving, insignificant, and unimportant, He keeps showing me how He sees me… and He paid the ultimate price to express that deep love He has for me. He gave Himself away because I matter to Him.

Lyrics:

[Verse 1]
Before I spoke a word
You were singing over me
You have been so, so
Good to me
Before I took a breath
You breathed Your life in me
You have been so, so
Kind to me

[Chorus]
Oh, the overwhelming, never-ending, reckless love of God
Oh, it chases me down, fights ’til I’m found, leaves the ninety-nine
I couldn’t earn it
I don’t deserve it
Still You give yourself away
Oh, the overwhelming, never-ending, reckless love of God

[Verse 2]
When I was your foe, still Your love fought for me
You have been so, so
Good to me
When I felt no worth
You paid it all for me
You have been so, so
Kind to me

[Chorus]
Oh, the overwhelming, never-ending, reckless love of God
Oh, it chases me down, fights ’til I’m found, leaves the ninety-nine
I couldn’t earn it
I don’t deserve it
Still You give yourself away
Oh, the overwhelming, never-ending, reckless love of God

[Bridge]
There’s no shadow You won’t light up
Mountain You won’t climb up
Coming after me
There’s no wall You won’t kick down
No lie You won’t tear down
Coming after me
