I wrote this song when I was face to face with the insecurity in my heart, allowing me to see clearly how potentially damaging that could be to healthy relationships with my dear loved ones. Even my good deeds can have self-centered motives if I leave my insecurities unchecked. Pride, jealousy, fear, discontent can all hinder our ability to love others with selfless love. If there is any true selfless love that flows out of me, it must flow from God, Himself.
Beloved, let us love one another, for love is from God, and whoever loves has been born of God and knows God. 1 John 4:7
