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.
