Who do you turn to when the voices in your mind keep saying you are not enough? How do you find strength when the lies of the world create ugly truths for your reality? Who is your source of hope and light during the darkest of days?
“I keep fighting voices in my mind that say I’m not enough
Every single lie that tells me I will never measure up
Am I more than just the sum of every high and every low
Remind me once again just who I am because I need to know”
Lauren Dangle gives voice to the doubts many of us silently worry about. Her soulful song “You Say” asks the questions many of us still ask…
“The only thing that matters now is everything You think of me
In You I find my worth, in You I find my identity
Taking all I have, and now I’m laying it at Your feet
You have every failure, God, You have every victory”
In her questions asked, she also finds the hope we also seek. And in that hope, just as she discovers, we can also believe.
You say I am loved when I can’t feel a thing
You say I am strong when I think I am weak
You say I am held when I am falling short
When I don’t belong, oh You say I am Yours
And I believe (I)
Oh, I believe (I)
What You say of me (I)
“You Say” has become one of my most favorite songs of all time. I can listen to it over and over, as I have today. I think a lot of other people also enjoy listening to it over and over as it is the only song of all genres to spend 100 weeks at #1.
I share with you these simple words I penned last year in a moment of deep pondering about whose child I am.
WHOSE CHILD AM I?
By Les Patterson
Is there a God
One who is a Father
Who art in Heaven?
Or is the Universe
The only Higher Power
I shall ever seek?
Here to live a life
Of what purpose
A child I am
this I know
But of whose
Such is my fervent quest
As I feel the longing
From a place called home
A place I lived
before this place
I now call home
Perhaps Heaven holds
the answers I seek
of whose child I am
Have a Beautiful Sunday!
We Love You!
