Music Monday– You Say

If you need a song to play when insecurities are screaming in your mind, this is the song. I’ve tried fighting it with mind over matter. I’ve tried fighting it with psychology or pep talks from friends. These things help. But what always drives away those anxieties and fears is dwelling on what God says of me.

I wonder why that is. I think it’s because as a Christian, I acknowledge that there is One whose approval is higher to me than anyone else’s. I can stubbornly argue that my family has to say they love me. My kids can’t even fathom not loving me as it’s all the love they’ve known. But what if I’m actually an awful mother? They wouldn’t realize that until years later. My husband might offer false flattery to end a fight or cheer me up. A friend might be too loyal to be honest. But God’s word never lies.

However, there’s one more thing that must be done. I must believe. It’s a choice to accept God’s word or not. And when I dwell on the negative thoughts that are in stark opposition to God’s words, then I am choosing unbelief. I would never want to disbelieve God about anything else, so how can I do so about myself?

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
And when I don’t belong, oh You say I am Yours
And I believe
Oh, I believe
What You say of me
I believe

  1. This song has become one of my favorites. I first heard it sung by a group during one Sunday Morning worship. I rarely listen to popular music on the radio. I only have it on while riding in my car or my husband’s car.
