You have to filter the input given from others. While it can be good sometimes, often it’s given through the lens of their experiences, fears, prejudices, & agenda. Your creator “knows the plans He has for you” & He is the authority you should live your life for.
If your past is holding you captive, it’s time to surrender it to God and walk in the freedom only He can give.
If you’re anything like me, God often uses music to communicate something I need to hear or need help putting words to in my own life. Today was one of those times. As I drove into work, I listened to this song for the first time: https://youtu.be/4oaRYLEIeis
I immediately downloaded it and began playing it on loop for the 45 minute drive. I’m not ashamed to tell you that tears filled my eyes as I listened to the lyrics so beautifully describe the desire of my heart, but so often not the actions/words I live out.
If you have a couple minutes, I encourage you to listen to this song. Really listen to the lyrics. I know it can help you recenter on Christ, like it did for me this morning.
To Lauren (Lauren Daigle):
Thank you for your sincerity in these lyrics and your heartfelt delivery of them!
