Hard to Love

I can't get the radio station I like up in my bed-room.  And when I was waking up to NPR I was having the weirdest/freakiest/scariest dreams...  So now my morning radio is set to country.  I like it, but it drives my poor husband crazy. 
Every once in a while a song comes on that just sticks with me all day.  Lee Brice's "Hard to Love" is one of those.  I relate to the lines.  (except "I drink too much", I don't drink because I don't like the way alcohol makes me feel.) 
I am this person...  I am selfish and mean, self-centered and critical.
But the part of this song that really gets me is in the second verse:  "You're like a Sunday morning full of grace and full of Jesus". 
Wow.  That's what I want people to say about me, to see in me.  To see the freedom & forgiveness I have found in the grace of Jesus...

Hard to Love
as sung by Lee Brice

I am insensitive I have a tendency
To pay more attention to the things that I need.
Sometimes I drink to much, sometimes I test your trust,
Sometimes I don't know why you're staying with me

I'm hard to love, hard to love,
I don't make it easy,
I couldn't do it if I stood where you stood
I'm hard to love, hard to love,
You say that you need me,
I don't deserve it but I love that you love me.
Good

I am a short fuse, I am a wrecking ball
Crashing into your heart like I do
You're like a Sunday morning full of grace and full of Jesus
I wish that I could be more like you.

I'm hard to love, hard to love,
I don't make it easy,
I couldn't do it if I stood where you stood,
I'm hard to love, hard to love,
You say that you need me,
I don't deserve it but I love that you love me.
Good
Love me good

Girl you've given me a million second chances
And I don't ever wanna take you for granted,
I'm just a man, I'm just a man

Hard to love, hard to love,
Oh I don't make it easy a
And I couldn't do it if I stood where you stood.
I'm hard to love, hard to love
And you say that you need me,
I don't deserve it but I love that you love me.
Good [x2]

You love me good.

Thanks for introducing me to this song. I like some country music, but I'm picky about which ones I like. This one works for me. :-) I too desire to be "full of grace"...particularly in dealing with my children. Thanks for the inspiration this morning. Have a wonderful Saturday!

Thank you.
I like some country music, but not all. I really prefer some Christian music, but I don't like all of that either...
