My Theme Song

So I have a theme song. Yep. It's been mine for a while. And I'm sure for others too. It's a great song.
Can you guess what it is?
Yes, He Knows My Name by Francesca Battistelli.
As y'all know, I'm pretty ashamed of my past. And I can sometimes feel depressed because of it. But as you also know, I'm trying to let go of that depression and accept my past and go on. Lately, I've been thinking about it. Every time I think about it, I don't feel the guilt and shame that I used to. There is so much going around Pinterest in my feed about acceptance of the past, going on, God's love, so on and so forth. I've been crying every time I see it, not because I feel guilty but because I know it's true and that I accept God's love for me despite what I've done. I've been listening to my song by Francesca Battistelli and Suitcases by Dara Maclean and other songs about God's love. When celebrities say that they love you, like what Bethany Mota tells you in every video, I feel loved. They love me even when they don't know me. That's just so amazing to me!! But I have the best friends in the world too. They know what I've done, and they still stick around through thick and thin. And God is sticking around too, even though he knows what I've done.
That's why I love this song so much. It confirms and shouts God's love for me. That I don't have to hold onto this shame and guilt anymore.
You can find the words anywhere online. Just Google it!!!:)
It was when I first heard this song, that I finally started accepting my past. And I'm well on my way.

Btw, in future posts, I will be mentioning a lot of my past. My past has a lot to do with my personality nowadays, how I think, how I behave, my emotions, etc. They will deal mainly with what God thinks of us all. And how I should defeat the monsters of insecurity, how to accept things, depression, and so on.

God's Grace

In my life, I've known God's grace all too well. I've said goodbye but also hello. Those hello's I've said have been God's grace to me. He knew that I wouldn't be able to handle the goodbye's I've said. He has given so much to me.
One thing I am especially thankful for is His forgiveness. I've done things in my life that I'm ashamed of. But you know, God forgave me. And I don't see how He could.
My favorite songs to listen to are love songs and songs about second chances and forgiveness. Love songs because I've had doubts that no man would ever love me, and when I do find a man who will love me despite what I've done, he's the one. I've had so many second chances in my life, I can't count.
Grace means getting something you don't deserve. Examples of grace: forgiveness, life, salvation, etc. Anything you don't deserve.
You have also known God's grace too. You may think that life just couldn't get any worse. You may think where is God's grace in your life. I can tell you, it's right there in front of you! You may not be having a great life, but you have one!!! You are still getting something you don't deserve! I don't deserve life; nobody does! If you've been saved by the grace of God, you have God's grace in your life. Even the unsaved know God's grace because He loves them. Love is supposed to be unconditional. But nowadays it isn't. True love comes from God. And when He gives it, he gives grace to go with it.

So celebrate God's grace and love! Don't show it off saying that you're better than anyone else. That isn't what God saved us for. We should show love no matter what is going on. That's what being a Christian is about.
