You Say…

Over time, I have come to understand that faith comes by hearing and also goes by hearing. Think about a random or not so random comment that came to you on an otherwise happy day and totally deflated you and took away your peace. Yes, you listened to words that threatened the faith built by what you heard right? Truly, it’s an ever present battle to guard our hearts in terms of what we hear.

Today, my post is focused on what one is hearing and who is saying what one is hearing. Sometimes, I struggle with thoughts that attempt to rid me of my confidence and they are very often birthed by comments I heard at one time or the other. I thought I had learned not to bother about what people say but once I fail to take deliberate actions not to ‘listen’ to those words, they often take root. I then find myself wondering whether I am good enough or if I can deal the task ahead me. Sometimes, everyone else but me seems to think I can but the struggle remains inside my heart and it’s worse when I unwittingly allow strange voices and comments creep in.

Frankly though, God always surrounds me with people who are waiting to affirm me and remind me what God says, and in this season, this was Lauren Daigle. I fell in love with her first because of her song ‘I will trust’ but that’s not the subject of today’s post. Her new song, ‘You Say’ has spoken so much to my self doubt and any challenges I may have accepting what God says I am. At the end of the day, I have come to a place where I believe that I am what God says I am!!! That’s so powerful and it is a deliberate decision I am making not to allow these random voices in my mind overwhelm me.

At this moment and for the rest of my life, I’ve chosen to find my identity in ONLY what God says of me!!!

I am choosing the voices that speak to me and this song is everything.

I am sharing it here and now…

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 (ooh oh)

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 that I am Yours
And I believe (I), oh I believe (I)
What You say of me (I)
I believe

The only thing that matters now is everything You think of me
In You I find my worth, in You I find my identity, (ooh oh)

You say I am loved when I can’t feel a thing
You say I am strong when I think I am weak
And You say I am held when I am falling short
When I don’t belong, oh You say that I am Yours
And I believe (I), oh I believe (I)
What You say of me (I)
Oh, I believe

Taking all I have and now I’m laying it at Your feet
You have every failure God, and You’ll have every victory, (ooh oh)

I hope you walk away from reading this, believing that only what God says about you matters, because at the end of the day, it’s in Him alone, we find our identity. Knowing that, we shut our hearts to all the contrary opinions, we respond saying, ‘this is what God says about me, you say???’
