So I can just be me

It is only with the one who can never run out of love for me, where I feel so safe being myself. With all that I am, flaws and whatnot. Others can expect so much from me and sometimes it puts a strain to my shoulders. There are times when I feel scared if not hesitant to express myself freely lest I might be faced with rejection. Come to think of it, if we spend too much time thinking about how others think of us, we will just end up ruining our self esteem and not sharing the best of what we have and what we can be. This song reminds me that it is safer to run to Our Father’s arms in times when I need someone to tell me, “I love you for who you are.”

 Laura Story “I Can Just Be Me” 

I’ve been doing all that I can
To hold it all together
Piece by piece.
I’ve been feeling like a failure,
Trying to be braver
Than I could ever be.
It’s just not me.

So be my healer, be my comfort, be my peace.
Cause I can be broken, I can be needy,
Lord I need You now to be,
Be my God, so I can just be me.

I’ve been living like an orphan,
Trying to belong here,
But it’s just not my home.
I’ve been holding on so tightly,
To all the things that I think
Could satisfy my soul.
But I’m letting go…

So be my father, my mighty warrior, be my king.
Cause I can be scattered, frail and shattered,
Lord I need You now to be,
Be my God, so I can just be me.

Cause I was lost in this dark world
Until I was finally found in You
So now I’m needing, desperately pleading
Oh Lord, be all to me

And be my savior, be my lifeline, won’t You be my everything.
Cause I’m so tired of trying to be someone
I was never meant to be
Be my God
Please be my God
Be my God
So I can just be me
So I can just be me
I can just be me.
