Love is the greatest thing in life. It is so painful when you feel a relationship going poorly. The loss of love, for any reason, is heartbreaking. It is especially painful when you are the reason for that loss.
When you sacrifice that love for something else, something less… that’s when the real pain sets in. It’s sufficient to say that relationships are what rule our lives to a certain degree or another.
After examining the inner workings of this crazy thing called marriage, I have come to the conclusion that there isn’t a more sacred and beautiful thing than this relationship. None of us will be perfect or do things right all the time. I know how it feels to admit when I’m wrong and try to “clean things up.” Those words “I’m sorry” are difficult to say sometimes.
I think of how hard it is to say those words when I am feeling the disappointment of my mistakes and sins. When I pray and think of my Savior Jesus Christ I am filled with gratitude for all that he has done for me, and the remorse inside for all the pain that I added to His infinite Atonement because of my mistakes and sins. How grateful I am for the grace of God and His mercy on us.
The words of the song are reminiscent of those feelings of trying to clean up a relationship with my Father in Heaven as well as the relationships with those I love all around me. “Here I am” is written from the heart.
