My favorite song right now is "Remind Me Who I Am" by Jason Gray (check out this acoustic version!) because it is exactly what I need to know right now. There's actually been several times the past few weeks that I'll turn on the radio and it will be playing, JUST when I need to hear something that reassures me that my heart doesn't belong to anyone but Jesus.
Just look at these insane crazy lyrics:
If I'm Your beloved, can You help me believe it?
Tell me, once again, who I am to You.
Tell me, lest I forget, who I am to You.
I'm the one You love--I'm the one You love.
That will be enough.
Honestly, I've been pretty lost lately. Stress and frustration can build a wall inside a person that prevents them from seeing the light--but God is greater than my heart (1 John 3:20). There is nothing that can separate me from Him. That sounds clique...but just believe it. It'll change everything.
I don't have to be impressive. I don't have to be likable. I don't have to be perfect. I don't have to be funny. I don't have to be talented.
I'm the one You love.
He loves you passionately. Don't forget.

Wasssssup, blog world! I've missed you! Would you like to see what's going on in my life? Maybe?
1. What doesn't kill you makes you strongerStand a little taller
Doesn't mean I'm lonely when I'm alone
What doesn't kill you makes a fighter
Footsteps even lighter
Doesn't mean I'm over cause you're gone --Kelly Clarkson
This is a secular song (oh dear! :P), but the chorus is really amazingly true about anything tough that we go through. Just because you feel like you're dying doesn't mean you can't get back up and keep fighting. Which bring us to my next quotation...
2. "There is no happiness in comfort. Happiness is bought with suffering. Man is not born for happiness. Man earns his happiness, and always by suffering"-- Fyodor Dostoevsky.
This was in a article I had to write an essay about, an example of the death-by-schoolwork I've been living in lately. I don't have the answers for how to deal with stress...but what feels SO GOOD is to give it all to God. That's hard. That's my only hope!
