Musical Monday…”God Believes In You”

There’s this song by Jill Phillips called “God Believes In You.”  I sometimes listen to it on repeat.  It reminds me that I matter to the Great Creator.  That the God above all other gods values me.  It reminds me that I am the daughter of the Most High God, and that I am beloved.  Not just loved, BELOVED.  He knows why He created me and what I will become.  He doesn’t worry about the fact that I screwed up again or that I failed.  He knows I will get there and He believes in me.

When no one else agrees or understands….when no one else says anything good….when people spit on you….when people you thought you could trust betray you….when you’ve failed again….when people create lies about you and spread them at work, school, church or on social media….

You need to know who you are.  You need to know that you are the beloved of God.  You need to know that God considered you such a valuable treasure that He was willing to send Jesus to die for you.  You need to know that you were the joy that was set before Jesus so He was willing to be spit on, mocked, beaten and crucified.  You are worth so much more than you can possibly imagine.  So for all of you having a rough week, month or year…know that God believes in you!

This post is written to everyone who has been feeling down or been feeling attacked lately.  But it’s also written to a specific beautiful middle school girl who is being attacked by insecure and jealous girls.  I want you to know that you too are beloved.  You have a purpose and a calling.  You are so very very special.  God made you so unique and creative.  We all love you.  We are behind you.  We all believe in you.  You matter to all of us.  You matter to God.  Hang in there my sweet sweet girl.

God Believes in You by Jill Phillips (Buy it from itunes if you don’t have it…you won’t be sorry).

When you start to doubt if you exist
God believes in you
Confounded by the evidence
God believes in you
When your light burns so dim
When your chances seem so slim
And you swear you don’t believe in Him
God believes in you

When you rise up just to fall again
God believes in you
Deserted by your closest friends
God believes in you
When you’re betrayed with a kiss
You turn your cheek to another fist
It does not have to end like this
God believes in you

Oh everything matters if anything matters at all
Everything matters no matter how big
No matter how small
Cause God believes in you
Oh God believes in you

When you’re so ashamed that you could die
God believes in you
And you can’t do right even though you try
God believes in you
Blessed are the ones who grieve
The ones who mourn, the ones who bleed
In sorrow you sow but in joy you reap
God believes in you

Blessed are the ones who grieve
The ones who mourn, the ones who bleed
In sorrow you sow but in joy you reap
God believes in you
Oh God believes in you
