This song helped change my life well over 20 years ago. I was a busy mom of 3 and working as a real estate agent. A huge deal I'd worked on for over a year fell apart and so did I.... landed on the couch and literally cried for three days. Toward the very end of those three days, while watching a christian TV show, an evangelist pointed to the screen and said to me, "Jesus loves you, He really, really does!" Those words shot through me like a knife. I jumped up off that couch and landed on my knees asking God to change me, heal me and I asked Him to use me for His purpose.
In order for God to "use me", He had to help me get rid of the baggage I had been carrying around....anger, hurt, pain, shame. This song was hugely popular then. I'd pop it in the tape player and stop it right after Larnelle and Sandi sang "All I've ever done before won't matter anymore" and replay it....maybe 20 times each session until finally, finally the healing of my hurting soul began. .
Jesus loves you, He really, really does!
Psalm 62 5-6
Find rest, O my soul, in God alone;
my hope comes from him.
He alone is my rock and my salvation; he is my fortress,
I will not be shaken
