SONG OF THE WEEK: God Gave Me You by Blake Shelton

It’s one thing to say “I love this cheeseburger’ or “I love those boots”,  but when you are loving people in a deep profound way, you have a love that must come from God.  That’s why love songs that give God the credit make my heart sing.  When you hold your baby in your arms, feel the touch of someone that wants to be with you forever or know the gift of sacrificial love, it’s so much easier to see the love of God shining all over your life.  Blake Shelton sings so beautifully about the tender humility that comes with being blessed with a love that is truly a gift from God.

I’ve been a walking heartache
I’ve made a mess of me
The person that I’ve been lately
Ain’t who I wanna be

But you stay here right beside me
Watch as the storm goes through
And I need you

[Chorus]
God gave me you for the ups and downs
God gave me you for the days of doubt
For when I think I’ve lost my way
There are no words here left to say, it’s true
God gave me you

There’s more here than what were seeing
A divine conspiracy
That you, an angel lovely
Could somehow fall for me
You’ll always be love’s great martyr
Ill be the flattered fool
And I need you

The video will make you smile and want to say I love you to someone precious in your life… give it a look.
