Home/Blog/Abiding Life/Love Feels Like

Back in the day, I was a huge dc Talk fan. Today, I know that Tait is singing with the Newsboys and TobyMac has his own successful solo career going. I don’t really follow any of it closely anymore, but a couple of months ago, I went looking for some new music. I came across TobyMac’s latest, and there was a track featuring dc Talk. Downloaded on the spot.

The song is cool enough as it is, but the presentation of what love (real love) feels like is so refreshing in today’s “love means everything’s great and fluffy” culture:

I am tired, I am drained
But the fight in me remains
I am weary, I am worn
Like I’ve never been before

This is harder than I thought
Harder than I thought it’d be
Harder than I thought
Takin’ every part of me
Harder than I thought
So much harder than I thought it’d be
But empty’s never felt so full

This is what love (this is what love)
This is what love
Feels like
This is what love (this is what love)
This is what love
Feels like
Poured out, used up, still givin’,
Stretching me out to the end of my limits
This is what love (this is what love)
This is what real love
Feels like
This is what love feels like poured out,
Used up still willin’ to fight for it
This is what love feels like
Yeah, this is what it feels like

Like floating confetti
The beautiful gets messy
When the fall out finds the floor
But in the depths of the trenches
Is the richest of riches
Love is calling us to more

This is what love (this is what love)
This is what love
Feels like
This is what love (this is what love)
This is what love
Feels like
Poured out, used up, still givin’,
Stretching me out to the end of my limits
This is what love (this is what love)
This is what real love
Feels like
This is what love feels like poured out,
Used up still willin’ to fight for it
This is what love feels like
Yeah, this is what it feels like

And now these three remain
Faith, hope and love
But the greatest of these is love

It’s worth everything you put in
Everything you put in
Love
This is what it feels like

Poured out, used up, still givin’,
Stretching me out to the end of my limits

This is what love (this is what love)
Feels like
This is what love (this is what love)
This is what love
Feels like
This is what love (this is what love)
Feels like
This is what love (this is what love)
This is what love
Feels like

This is what love (this is what love)
Feels like

Poured out, used up, still givin’,
Poured out, used up, still givin’,
Poured out, used up, still givin’,
Stretching me out to the end of my limits

“We know love by this, that He laid down His life for us; and we ought to lay down our lives for the brethren.” – 1 John 3:16

Poured out. Used up. Still giving. The Lord stretches us to the end of our limits. Then we can’t boast in our love, but in Him. When we have no capacity left of ourselves to love, He does. It’s His life and His love flowing in and through us. I’ve got nothing. He is everything. Despite humanity’s rebellion against Him, He loved us. Despite the cursing, spitting, flogging, and crucifying, He loved us. That’s the kind of love that pulses through our veins. And that’s the love with which we love each other. His love. Real love. Even after it hurts.
