The other day as I was driving in my pickup down the Texas highway one of my favorite songs, Cyndi Lauper’s ‘Time After Time’, came over the radio. The lyrics to that song and the emotion in Ms. Lauper’s voice as she sings it, are both beautiful. The chorus goes like this…
“If you’re lost you can look–and you will find me
Time after time
If you fall I will catch you–I’ll be waiting
Time after time”
‘Time After Time’ is about a young woman who thinks she doesn’t deserve love, pushes away those who try to love her, but then finds someone who loves her unconditionally no matter what.
As I listened to the chorus of the song, it made me think of my relationship with Jesus. There are times I’ve felt like I don’t deserve His love, there are times when I push Him away, but I know that He loves me unconditionally. He’s always there waiting for me, He’always there to catch me when I fall.
When I feel sorrow or pain, Jesus is there to comfort me. When I make the wrong decision or say the wrong thing, Jesus is there to forgive me. When I feel lonely, confused, or afraid, Jesus is there to talk to. When I drift away from Him and feel lost, Jesus is there patiently waiting with His arms wide open and urging me to come back to Him ………time after time.
