Last week I was listening to one of the local country stations while I was on my way home from my sister’s house. As I was listening the song “I Can Love You Like That” by John Michael Montgomery came on. Now I have loved this song since it was first released and I have always dreamed of having someone to love me like that, but as I listened to the song this time He spoke to me. He told me that He loves me like that, that no man on this earth can love me like He does and that I am everything to that’s precious to Him. And He also told me that YOU are too. YOU are everything that’s precious to Him.
As little girls, we all have dreams that when we grow up we are going to meet our Princes Charming, fall madly in love and live happily ever after. Well, by now we have learned that happily ever after takes work, and while some of us are still waiting on our Prince Charming, there is a man who loves us like that. His name is Jesus.
So as you read through the lyrics or listen to the song (video at the bottom), instead of pretending that it is your someday-in-the-future dream man singing it to you, hear Jesus’ voice singing it to you because He is really the only one who can love you like that.
