Repost: You Say Lovely, I Say Broken

****this a post from 2018 but I wanted to share it again!****

As most of you know, I live with mental illness. It’s a struggle sometimes but I’m managing it. I’m on medication that has stabilized my moods.

There are times when I just don’t see me the way God sees me. Actually there are A LOT of times I don’t see me the way He sees me.

This song has such a special meaning to me.


This is absolutely one of my favorite songs by Mandisa. I’ve shared it before but I wanted to share it again. This song has so much meaning.  

Time and time again I struggle with why God would choose to love someone like me. And I think we all do that. We all tend to think that our sin is too much for Him to forgive. We aren’t worthy of his love. So why would God choose us?

Because that’s who He is. He’s a merciful God who looks past our insecurities, past our doubts. He loves us unconditionally.

That’s a promise. 🙂

“The Truth About Me”–Mandisa  

If only I could see me as you see me
And understand the way that I am loved
Would it give a whole new meaning to my purpose
Change the way I see the world Would I sparkle like a star in the night sky
Would I give a little more instead of take
If I understood I’m precious like the diamond
I’m a worth no one could estimate
I’m a worth no one could estimate   You say lovely
I say broken
I say guilty
You say forgiven
I feel lonely
Say you’re with me
We both know it would change everything
If only I believed the truth about me   I wish I could hold on to the moments
When my life is spinnin’ but I’m peaceful still
Like a wind you whispered in the silence
And tell me things this world never will
You tell me things this world never will   You say lovely
I say broken
I say guilty
You say forgiven
I feel lonely
Say you’re with me
We both know it would change everything
If only I believed the truth about me   I would sleep better at night
Wake up with hope for another day
I would love even if it cost me
Take a chance and know I’m goin’ be okay
I would dare to give my life away Oh, I feel lonely
Say you’re with me
We both know it would change everything
If only I believed the truth about me
