Southern Gospel in the Backyard

I wrote this song to express my struggle with the anger I felt towards someone who caused me a lot of frustration, hurt, and disappointment in the last few years. We all struggle with negative feelings, whether it's envy or bitterness that rob us of peace or cause us to gossip, hold grudges, or think we're better than "those people."

What Jesus has shown me is that, deep down, I am inclined to do all of these things- to refuse to forgive, to point out the shortcomings of others- and only He can change me from the inside out. Despite my best efforts, I often fail to show love to the people around me, especially  to those who don't return that love.

In this song, I sing about how Jesus is rich in love. My bitter heart can learn to love, slowly but surely, if only I follow Him.
