Lyrics of the Week

I was encouraged by this song this morning as I was driving into the studio. (Yeah I listen to The House FM too!) It's Francesca Battistelli's CD, My Paper Heart.

At twenty years of age I'm still looking for a dream
A war's already waged for my destiny
But You've already won the battle
And You've got great plans for me
Though I can’t always see

‘Cause I got a couple dents in my fender
Got a couple rips in my jeans
Try to fit the pieces together
But perfection is my enemy
On my own I'm so clumsy
But on Your shoulders I can see
I'm free to be me

When I was just a girl I thought I had it figured out
My life would turn out right, and I'd make it here somehow
But things don't always come that easy
And sometimes I would doubt


And you’re free to be you

Sometimes I believe that I can do anything
Yet other times I think I've got nothing good to bring
But You look at my heart and You tell me
That I've got all You seek
And it’s easy to believe
Even though


I like this song because sometimes we think we have to be a certain person or measure up to the standard to be accepted by people. This song reminds me that I am loved and accepted by God. I'm special (just like Bob, the tomato has always said) and I can be free to be the me that God has created me to be. Yippee!!
