Description
In 1997 I was on a Navy Ship called the USS LaSalle. We were in the Black Sea. As a band member you have a lot of time to yourself if you are riding on a navy ship. One day as I was studying some scripture from Ephesians I came across a verse that said God has an inheritance in His saints. I was stunned so I asked, "I know the benefit for Jesus dying for me but, what do you get out the deal?" He spoke softly and surly and simply said, "I get you." That was a starting point for me discovering the tremendous love God has for us all. I wrote this song just a few months later. Now in 2011 I think I've got it put together correctly.

Lyrics
Love Like This

You know I've been here
30 years or so.
I aint never known the kinda love
you've just shown to me.

The God of the universe,
Created the stars, the heavens and the earth.
I know you died for me, but now I really know.

If I'd been the only one
Jesus would have come for me.
Up to now I didn't really know.
I really didn't understand about the way your really feel.
I really didn't know, Lord.
I really didn't understand your love.

Lord why's you do it?
still don't understand.
What you stand to gain,
if all you gain is me.
If I'm your inheritance
Let it be, Lord.
Let it be so, but you knocked me on the floor
Cuz I never known love like this before!

I said I loved you but
that is such shallow ground.
But a seed sown deep in  my heart
secures my faith in you.

The God of the universe,
You bring new life into the earth.
I know your love for me, but now I really know.

If I'd been the only one
Jesus would have come for me.
Up til now I didn't really know.
I really didn't understand about the way you really feel.
I didn't know, Lord.
I really didn't understand your love.
