None Like You

I had an amazing time with Jesus this morning. I was worshiping to my Hillsong United Pandora station when Shane and Shane's song "None Like You" came on. A few months back when I first heard this song I was overtaken by the lyrics. I realized in that time of listening and worshiping that the lyrics could apply to both my love for Jesus and my love for my daughter. Then when I heard it again this morning I couldn't help but be overtaken once more, but this time in a different way. Along with thinking about my daughter and my love for her, I also was overwhelmed by the love Jesus has for me. I love my daughter so much and I haven't even met her yet--how much greater is His love me for me, His daughter?! As tears streamed down my face I heard my Heavenly Father say, "There is none like you, no one else can touch my heart like you do, I can search for all eternity long and find there is none like you." He sings the same song over you! Listen and be overwhelmed by His love for you!
