Song Story: The subtitle of this song is "Shelter in Your Arms." See the song story for
the companion song Lullaby Of God, to learn why. For this song's story:
At 3:33 AM on the morning after Claxton at Valley Worship & Praise Studio
and I had recorded LULLABY OF GOD,
I awoke thinking of how often we people hurt God.
About how perhaps HE would enjoy having someone who loved Him
to sing soothing words to HIM, as a mother comforts her child,
as God Himself comforts us. ....
And then I thought – why not?
Why can’t we who love our Lord deeply express our love
through lulling words of worship?
This song falls under the subject of Evangelism because of the line
“Love won't force me. I choose You. You won't force me.”
Even God does not force Himself on people;
Christ followers must follow His steps,
must let the Holy Spirit guide listeners
after we present His Good News.
THIS SONG initiated the concept for the AMAZING LOVE 'N' LULLABIES album;
up until then, I had not idea whatsoever that God would continue to gift songs to His world through me. I am still astounded by His honor of letting me develop His songs.
Dedicated to our Lord, 24 December 2008
All the many times God has said "I Love you"
in both words and in His actions, including on the Cross,
He MEANT them. But He loves and RESPECTS us
too much to FORCE us to come to Him.
This song is a prayer lullaby FROM us to our Amazing,
our lullaby to God....
“I LOVE YOU.”
Don’t think that my words mean nothing.
I’m sorry I was slow to hear You calling.
I yearn to be held in Your arms. For-
give my sins that hurt Your heart. Help
me to hold You in my heart.
Lord, God, ..... I come..... to You:
Love won’t force me. I choose
You. You won’t force me. I love
You. Please protect me. I sought
You, and found You love me. In Your
arms, I found my shelter.... and learned love.
