The Truth About Me

Do you ever feel like you're bound by the chains of insecurity?  My self-image is something I've struggled with most of my life and it's a battle I fight daily with myself.  When Stephen and I first got engaged I remember one of the things I looked forward to the most about marriage was not being so insecure anymore.   But let me just say...I was jaded.  Getting married doesn't rid you of those issues. If anything, it has magnified my insecurities.  So often I have given in to the lies the enemy has hurled at me and sunk back down into that pit.  But each time I do, I remind myself of a verse my mom used to recite to me:

"I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well."   -Psalm 139:14

 Fearfully and wonderfully made.  That's powerful stuff people!   How different would our lives be if we saw ourselves the way God sees us?

This song has been on repeat in my car for the past month and it has ministered to my soul in so many ways.  My constant prayer is that I will one day see myself the way God sees me.  For all of you other women out there who struggle with this, I hope this song will encourage you as it has me.

 





The Truth About Me
by: Mandisa

If only I could see me as You see me
And understand the way that I am loved
Would it give a whole new meaning to my purpose?
Change the way I see the world

Would I sparkle like a star in the night sky?
Would I give a little more instead of take?
If I understood I'm precious like a diamond
Of a worth no one could estimate
I'm a worth no one could estimate

You say lovely, I say broken
I say guilty, You say forgiven
I feel lonely, You say You're with me
We both know it would change everything
If only I believed the truth about me

I wish I could hold on to the moments
When my life is spinning but I'm peaceful still
Like a wind You whisper into silence
And tell me things this world never will
You tell me things this world never will

You say lovely, I say broken
I say guilty, You say forgiven
Oh, I feel lonely, You say You're with me
We both know it would change everything
If only I believed the truth about me

I would sleep better at night
Wake up with hope for another day
I would love even if it cost me
Take a chance and know I'm gonna be okay
I would dare to give my life away

Oh, I feel lonely, You say You're with me
We both know it would change everything
If only I believed, if only I believed the truth about me
