A reminder from God

In the last few days, for various reasons I’ve been feeling quite restless, low mood and emotional.

It’s amazing how, no matter how we’re feeling, God always finds a way to get our attention and give us just the direction or remind we need. These last few days have been no different, as on Saturday evening while feeling very low, I put my headphones on and just started listing to some music – I didn’t choose what I listened to, but when the song ‘No Outsiders’ by Rend Collective came on, it got my attention.

You are our refuge
You have no borders
When I was a stranger, knocking at Your door
You took me in
With no questions, and no conditions
When I was a sinner, running from Your grace
You called me friend
You called me friend

There are no outsiders to Your love
We are all welcome, there's grace enough
When I have wandered Lord, your cross is the open door
There are no outsiders
I'm not an outsider to Your love

You are the harbour
In every tempest
When my soul was shipwrecked
Tossed upon the waves
You calm the storm
You are the Father
And there are no orphans
Every tribe and nation
Gathered in Your arms
Sings with one voice
Sings with one voice

There are no outsiders to Your love
We are all welcome, there's grace enough
When I have wandered Lord, your cross is the open door
There are no outsiders
I'm not an outsider to Your love

I was tired, I was poor
I was thrown upon Your shores
I was homeless and afraid
'Til I heard You call my name
Now I'm ransomed, I'm restored
Resurrected, I am Yours
I am loved, yes I belong
Oh my soul has found its home

There are no outsiders to Your love
We are all welcome, there's grace enough
When I have wandered Lord, your cross is the open door
There are no outsiders
I'm not an outsider

'Cause there are no outsiders to Your love
We are all welcome, there's grace enough
When I have wandered Lord, your cross is the open door
There are no outsiders
I'm not an outsider
No, there are no outsiders
No I'm not an outsider to Your love
