Love Song for a Savior


I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me (Galatians 2:20).

Tonight, I offer a special dedication. I recently met a dear Christian mother who lost her daughter to a battle with cancer. In this life I did not get to meet her daughter but her I can tell through the mom and from others’ words that she loved people and she loved Christ. I am reminded of a promise of God in Revelation 14:13, Yea, saith the Spirit, that they may rest from their labours; and their works do follow them. Surely her works will follow her on Earth.

The daughter’s favorite song was Love Song for a Savior performed by Jars of Clay. Though I had heard it, I can’t say this song was in my heart before last week. It has now taken root.

Do you love God? He loves us. The LORD hath appeared of old unto me, saying, Yea, I have loved thee with an everlasting love: therefore with lovingkindness have I drawn thee (Jer 31:3). I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me (Gal 2:20).

In thinking of the theme of loving God I offer that he wants us to love others. If we cannot love others, we cannot love Him.

And this is his commandment, That we should believe on the name of his Son Jesus Christ, and love one another, as he gave us commandment. And he that keepeth his commandments dwelleth in him, and he in him. And hereby we know that he abideth in us, by the Spirit which he hath given us (1 John 3:23-24). Beloved, let us love one another: for love is of God; and every one that loveth is born of God, and knoweth God. He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love. In this was manifested the love of God toward us, because that God sent his only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through him. Herein is love, not that we loved God, but that he loved us, and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins. Beloved, if God so loved us, we ought also to love one another. No man hath seen God at any time. If we love one another, God dwelleth in us, and his love is perfected in us (1 John 4:7-12).

Natasha, your love for others lives on in your example and courage. I dedicate this post to you and to your mother and father.

Love Song For A Savior”

In open fields of wild flowers,
she breathes the air and flies away
She thanks her Jesus for the daisies and the roses
in no simple language
Someday she’ll understand the meaning of it all
He’s more than the laughter or the stars in the heavens
As close a heartbeat or a song on her lips
Someday she’ll trust Him and learn how to see Him
Someday He’ll call her and she will come running
and fall in His arms and the tears will fall down and she’ll pray,

“I want to fall in love with You”

Sitting silent wearing Sunday best
The sermon echoes through the walls
A great salvation through it calls to the people
who stare into nowhere, and can’t feel the chains on their souls

He’s more than the laughter or the stars in the heavens
As close a heartbeat or a song on our lips
Someday we’ll trust Him and learn how to see Him
Someday He’ll call us and we will come running
and fall in His arms and the tears will fall down and we’ll pray,

“I want to fall in love with You”

It seems too easy to call you “Savior”,
Not close enough to call you “God”
So as I sit and think of words I can mention
to show my devotion

“I want to fall in love with You”

“My heart beats for You”

    What can I say here? My tears are falling , and I am more in love with Jesus because my Natasha loved this song, it was sung at her memorial, and I also , like you , had heard this song and never paid a whole lot of mind unto it until we were preparing for her memorial and remembered how Natasha loved it as a young girl. Natasha was such a hero and battled so fiercely to get better and never complained while in her ten months of battling her Lymphoma , she spent five days out of every week , either at the hospital, or at a clinic, or for a test, or for chemo, or for getting ready for a whole new series of medicines, IV’s and other procedure. She got poked so many times and even those painful mistakes were made where she would have go through another series of pic- linings. As I heard this song performed at her memorial, knowing that this song was just newly practiced and performed in a hurry with such beauty of sight and sound, and I heard the words, I pictured her as she always has been: quirky, simple, humble and always singing. She loved nature so much she would get excited and tell you of a piece of avocado she just finished eating , or a pomegranate , two of her favorite foods :), she would literally giggle with delight as she explained how good!! it was. I keep seeing her in the arms of Jesus and then running in a field of daisies and she wants to say to me, that she is really giggling with delight in these beautiful fields, and lets me know , mommy, I am sooooooo okay,♥ . …….. I thank you dearly for this beautiful dedication. , my friend, whom I am not even sure of your name. ♥ for we just recently met through twitter, . Who can comprehend these mysterious beautiful ways of our Saviour. signed, mom, ………and a sister, Elizabeth Rodriguez

    Dearest Isa,

    I truly believe that you are seeing this because it is real. Your beautiful Natasha is speaking to you through this song. My thoughts and prayers are continually with you. God bless.
