In Spite Of Me....

I woke up with this song in my heart. I haven't heard it in a long time-- but I like the line, "you've already won me over, in spite of me".

It reminds me how God continually woos us and if we are open, He eventually wins our hearts, in spite of ourselves, in spite of all the obstacles we put in the way- He still woos us and wins our hearts with the Truth of who He really is and who we really are.

We aren't used to being treated so well, like royalty. We say, "this is too good to be true, it cant be true" because we are not used to true love.  We don't think we are worthy or worth it. But we are.

I love that....



I had no choice but to hear you
You stated your case time and again
I thought about it

You treat me like I'm a princess
I'm not used to liking that
You ask how my day was

You've already won me over in spite of me
And don't be alarmed if I fall head over feet
Don't be surprised if I love you for all that you are
I couldn't help it
It's all your fault

Your love is thick and it swallowed me whole
You're so much braver than I gave you credit for
That's not lip service

You've already won me over in spite of me
And don't be alarmed if I fall head over feet
Don't be surprised if I love you for all that you are
I couldn't help it
It's all your fault

You are the bearer of unconditional things
You held your breath and the door for me
Thanks for your patience

You're the best listener that I've ever met
You're my best friend
Best friend with benefits
What took me so long

I've never felt this healthy before
I've never wanted something rational
I am aware now
I am aware now

You've already won me over in spite of me
And don't be alarmed if I fall head over feet
Don't be surprised if I love you for all that you are
I couldn't help it
It's all your fault
