music tuesday: all that matters

c


Obsessed with what they’d think if
They really knew me
And I’ve been
Oppressed with the feelings
Of never being enough and I’m tired
I’m tired

All that matters me is what you see when you
Look at me
All that matters to me is how you feel when
You think of me
No more distractions my one affection
Is only you my Jesus now….
You’re all that matters

I’ve wasted time believing
I could become everything they wanted
Now I’m left with only pieces of who I was and who I really am
I, I am tired

I don’t need another heart but yours but yours
I won’t put any other love before you my Lord

  2. Hey hon,

    What beautiful lyrics. So often in life we do things based numerous things that influence and affect how we view ourselves-whether it is constantly striving to meet the expectations of the people we value (or feeling we fell short of meeting those expectations), or rejections from the people we love(d) (and this could be family, friends, or past loves), mistakes we made in the past, or past hurts. All these things can contribute to how we view ourselves, and sadly, how we delay/avoid doing things for God that are bigger than ourselves due to fears of inadequacy. It seems God often uses those who are beautifully imperfect-those who are not "there yet"- so that His strength is made perfect, and so that it will be obvious that it wasn't because of our efforts, and who we are, rather because of who He is. So often the focus is un "us/me" rather than on Him. I'm guilty.

    I love the line, "All that matters me is what you see when you
    Look at me
    All that matters to me is how you feel when
    You think of me"

    P.S. I love the new profile pic. :)
