The songs that speak to me the most are usually songs that in my opinion don’t get the attention they deserve.”Light up, light up as if you have a choice even if you cannot hear my voice I’ll be right beside you dear”.I am almost certain RUN by Snow Patrol is not intended for the Christian masses but I sing it feeling affirmed that God is speaking to me because like the lyrics say ”even if you cannot hear my voice I’ll be right beside you dear.” what more proof do I need that he is talking to me.
Over and over again I say to myself even if I cannot hear his voice he is right beside me and to reassure me even more, he uses the term of endearment dear(Insert Bae or boo or whatever will give you a little flutter in your belly if the one you desire says it)
Just knowing someone is there and we are wanted is what so many of us need or rather want.Do you ever feel alone, unloved, undesired, misunderstood? Almost like an alien in the midst of gorgeous, talented, accepted people. Believe I have felt like the former most of my life.Like an outcast in every way.Having friends that I see as friends but being seen as an acquaintance.No looks to stop anyone in their tracks.Mundane.Like Princess Mia in The Princess Diaries except I am not secretly a royal and no makeover will ever happen.
Well well, my darling you are the exact opposite of these detestable thoughts you choose to deceive yourself with. You don’t have to listen to me. What do I know about your feelings? You can instead listen to the one who made you and knows those feeling before you even feel them.The master puppeteer of us all. Romans 8;38-39.”For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.”NIV
There is no end to his love.There are no requirements.He loves you as you are.All that you dislike about yourself he loves.There is no taking a break or silent treatment or breakup.There is no malice, body shaming, verbal or physical abuse with God.There is only love.The days that you lie in bed and feel undesired and unloved and overlooked by family, friends,women, guys,employers the people who control the status quo.God is right there beside you telling you to lighten up.He must think we are silly sometimes don’t you think.That we forget to see ourselves the way he sees us when with all due respect his opinion matters the most.Sit down today and picture the person you admire the most.How much you would love to be admired by someone else in that light.That is a fraction of how you are viewed by God.You are loved by him with no reservation.It’s about time you also begin to love yourself with no reservation.
