Winnipeg native Amanda Cook is an award-winning and incredibly popular modern Christian artist. Her rich history as a worship leader and deep devotion to Christ inspire her to write songs that provide her listeners with encouragement, strength, and hope. Her most recent song, “Pieces” has become an instant hit. Let’s take a closer look at the message Cook is trying to convey through her meaningful music.
Cook sings of the passion of God’s love; a love that is genuine, powerful, and proud:
Your love is wild, Your love is wild for me
It isn’t shy, it’s unashamed
Your love is proud to be seen with me
You don’t give Your heart in pieces
You don’t hide Yourself to tease us
The chorus is another great testimony to the Lord’s love, as Cook reminds us that His love is all encompassing. He does not fraction his love, but rather gives each of his children all of his love and attention. As our heavenly Father and ultimate creator, He has the ability to completely pour all of his love into each and every one of us, which is an amazing thing! Even though we may not be able to see our heavenly Father as we do with the people we love on Earth, Cook reminds us that this inability to see God isn’t meant to taunt us or discourage us—but rather to motivate us to focus on our faith and spiritual connection to Him.
Take some time to listen to the rest of the song. As you listen, be reminded of God’s unfailing love for you. Never forget that no matter what happens in your life, you are unbelievably and undeniably loved.
