Songs that reach us
« on: April 05, 2017, 06:02:13 PM »
This is a Christian song, so it speaks of having a Higher Power in charge, without being 'in-your-face' about the Christianity. Still, I love, love, love this song. I cry every time I sing it. I need to hear these lyrics every once in a while - to remind me I'm ok the way I am - God still loves me. And I'm love-worthy.

I just thought I'd share a song that helps me on bad days.


"Free To Be Me"


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

 '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

 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

 '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

Three Roses - you are an amazing woman. Always there for everyone else. Take some time to see who we see in you - that you ARE amazing. Even if you never posted again, you'd still be amazing. You have a warm, thoughtful spirit that shines through your posts. Thank you for being you. You are enough already, just as you are. God loves you eternally and I am thankful to call you friend.

 :hug:

To One In Paradise : Alan Parsons Project

If I could see the sky above
And my mind could be set free
As wild white horses reached the shore
I'd stand alone and oversee

And if the bush before me burns
Should I turn my eyes away
And still the voices I can hear
As clear to me as light of day

I believed in my dreams
Nothing could change my mind
Now I know what they mean
How could I be so blind

Cold sands of time
(Winds that blow as cold as ice
Sounds that come in the night)
Shall hide what is left of me
(Come from Paradise)

I've been through times when no one cared
(Words that were mine)
I've seen clouds in empty skies
When one kind word meant more to me
(Shall last as a memory)
Than all the love in Paradise

I believed in my dreams
Nothing could change my mind
Till I found what they mean
Nothing can save me now
