Day 5 ~ You Are Loved

I was on a Sunday afternoon walk when I first heard this song by the band “Stars Go Dim” and it totally turned my day around – in fact it’s done that on several days!

I was so full of thoughts and emotions I felt like anyone passing by would surely be able to see a big, billowy cloud surrounding me on the sidewalk.  It was one of those days when my mind was racing ahead of my heart and my heart was frustrated trying to catch my mind, and all the while my spirit was calling for a time-out to pull us all together!  Have you ever had one of those days?  I have them frequently….

Then came this song that I think God must have saved me from hearing for this very moment when He knew I would need a good reminder that even when my mind is restless….even when my heart is breaking….even when I don’t have answers and nothing “feels” right in the moment…..

I. Am. Loved.

I literally looked up to the sky with every “Just look up, know you are loved” lyric, as I felt all that inner combat gradually calm and I just allowed myself to be quiet and believe that I am loved.  Because I am.  And so are you!  Just as we are….hurts & all….God loves us with a passion we can’t fathom.  That beautiful, generous love is a pretty safe place to settle into while we grow and heal, don’t you think?

I hope you have a minute to take a listen to this song as you follow the lyrics.  It’s a day-changer!  ❤

You Are Loved
Stars Go Dim
We hide pain in the weirdest places
Broken souls with smiling faces
Fighting for surrender
For now and the after, yeah
Just look around and you’ll see that people
Are scared to say how they really feel
Oh, we all need a little honesty

 

You are loved
If your heart’s in a thousand pieces
If you’re lost and you’re far from reason
Just look up; know you are loved
Just look up; and know you are loved
When it feels like something’s missing
If it hurts but you can’t find healing
Just look up, know you are loved
Just look up, know you are loved
Ooh

 

We’re not made to be superheroes
Photoshopped, all size zeroes
A light not expected
But not quite perfected yet
Look up; see the sun is shining
There’s hope on a new horizon
Calling you, it’s calling

 

You are loved
If your heart’s in a thousand pieces
If you’re lost and you’re far from reason
Just look up; know you are loved
Just look up; and know you are loved
When it feels like something’s missing
If it hurts but you can’t find healing
Just look up, know you are loved
Just look up, know you are loved

 

And you, don’t have to prove yourself
Don’t try to be someone else
You don’t have to prove yourself
Don’t try to be someone else

 

You are loved
Just look up; you are loved
Just look up; you are loved
Just look up; you are loved

 

You are loved
If your heart’s in a thousand pieces
If you’re lost and you’re far from reason
Just look up; know you are loved
Just look up; and know you are loved
When it feels like something’s missing
If it hurts but you can’t find healing
Just look up, know you are loved
Just look up, know you are loved
Ooh
You are loved
If your heart’s in a thousand pieces
If you’re lost and you’re far from reason
Just look up; know you are loved
Just look up; and know you are loved
When it feels like something’s missing
If it hurts but you can’t find healing
Just look up, know you are loved
Just look up, know you are loved
You Are Loved
