What have I done?

I’m sure we’ve all found ourselves questioning, “what have I done to deserve this?” Have you noticed that when we ask that question, it’s nearly always because something bad or upsetting has happened? Questioning why we deserve a particular event or situation to happen to us, is a normal reaction or response to bad news or traumatic situation.

Yes, like everyone else, I’ve questioned why I’ve had to endure some things in life that I could have done without. I have however also questioned why God loves me – What have I done to deserve His love? What have I done to deserve love like this? – His unquestioning, never failing love for me.

My command is this: Love each other as I have loved you. Greater love has no one than this: to lay down one’s life for one’s friends.

John 15:12-13

So the answer to my question, “what have I done to deserve God’s love?”, is nothing! It’s God who has done something incredible for us, when He sent Jesus to live amongst us, and then be crucified at Calvary, just so you and me could be forgiven of our sins.

What have I done to deserve God’s love? I am a child of God.

When I am a wasteland
You are the water
When I am the winter
You are the fire that burns

When I am a long night
You are the sunrise
When I am a desert
You are the river that turns
To find me

What have I done to deserve love like this?
What have I done to deserve love like this?

Your voice like a whisper
Breaking the silence
You say there's a treasure
You'll look 'til You find it
You search to find me

What have I done to deserve love like this?
What have I done to deserve love like this?
I cannot earn what You so freely give
What have I done to deserve love like this?

Hallelujah
Hallelujah
Hallelujah
Hallelujah

What have I done to deserve love like this?
What have I done to deserve love like this?
I cannot earn what You so freely give
What have I done to deserve love like this?
