Free to be Me

Usually, music is what inspires me and music is how God speaks to me. Well, today is no exception. Last night I heard this song, 'Free to be Me' by Francesca Battistelli and the words are perfect, they totally describe my life. But isn't that usually how it goes? LOL! Here are the lyrics:

At twenty years of age I'm still looking for a dream
A war's already waged for my destiny
But You've already won the battle
And You've got great plans for me
Though I can’t always see
‘Cause I got a couple dents in my fender
Got a couple rips in my jeans
Try to fit the pieces together
But perfection is my enemy
On my own I'm so clumsy
But on Your shoulders I can see
I'm free to be me
When I was just a girl I thought I had it figured out
My life would turn out right, and I'd make it here somehow
But things don't always come that easy
And sometimes I would doubt
(Repeat Chorus)
And you're free to be you
Sometimes I believe that I can do anything
Yet other times I think I've got nothing good to bring
But You look at my heart and You tell me
That I've got all You seek A
nd it’s easy to believe
Even though
(Repeat Chorus)
That's my life right now. I'm twenty years old, I'm not perfect, I'm still looking for who I am and who I want to be.... but I know that through Him.... I'm free to be me. I'm definately not someone who tries to fit in or goes along with the crowd. I've always been the type to rebel when it came to choices that my friends made. I'm not as rebellious when it comes to my clothes anymore.... thank goodness! I make choices for me now, and I've stopped caring whether or not someone thinks I'm cool or if they think I'm wierd. I am who I am, I stutter and stumble over my words sometimes, I play guitar and sing... even though sometimes I think I'm pretty horrible at it. I like to sew and knit, I even like to play video games on my husbands xbox and on my ds. I am just me. I might not be what anyone else thinks I should be.... but through God's amazing love and grace... I am FREE TO BE ME.
