Repeated Thoughts and Confessions

Since I turned 23 last week, this song has been on my mind… and I would like to share it with you… It speaks a lot to me, probably because I used to (sometimes still do) have a mindset similar to the lyrics in the first verse… This song has been a blessing in different ways, and I hope it helps someone through a difficult moment or encourages someone to NEVER forget how much Christ loves each of us, irrespective of how “inadequate” we are, or “unacceptable” our shortfalls are to the world. it’s by Casey J, and it is titled ‘JOURNAL’.

I couldn’t find a lyric-video on YouTube,  but  you can listen to the song in this video I found on YouTube:

Here are the Lyrics,

Failure
Not worth it
It’s too late to start again
And I’m sure I’m useless in the hands of the Creator
I’m not enough to salvage
And I’m not enough to build with
So don’t try
No, I won’t try
But then came your word

(your) Healing, Affirming Word
Write it on my heart
Write it on my mind
So I’ll never forget it
Your word
[x2]

Walking around, fearful
What if someone finds out the truth?
That I’m shattered
Pieced together by the love of You.
Not worthy of Your attention
I’m so guilty and ashamed
Please don’t use me
No, you can’t use me
But here comes your Word

(Your) Healing, Affirming Word
Write it on my heart
Write it on my mind
So I’ll never forget it
Your word
[x4]

I believe
What you think about me
So I’ll repeat the confessions of Your love for me
Now I breathe
The life of Your Word in me
So I’ll never forget it
[x4]

You know me completely
And yet You love me so deeply
Help me (help me never forget it)
And when mother and father forsake me
God, You promise to take me up

Sing help me never forget it
Help me never forget it
Tonight we believe that we’re purposed by You
Yes we are
God we’re purposed by you
(Help me never forget it)
You love me so deeply
God your love is unchanging
God your love is unfailing
Sing help me never forget it
Help me never forget it

So this is the moment
That God is going to write some things
Upon our hearts
And whatever your posture of worship is
I just ask that you get to that posture
So when God speak you hear him really clearly
And it may not be for everybody
It may just be for some of us
That really have some things
That we need God is going to write over our hearts
There’re some things we said that didn’t sound like him
There’re some places we have gone
That we had no business in
But tonight God will write some things over our hearts
If we confess him with our mouths
So tonight we’re going to release a sound of confession
And whatever you hear God saying about you
You can sing it,
You can say it,
You can cry it,
You can call it out
But confess what he says about you
