Taking It Deeper


We hide pain in the weirdest places

Broken souls with smiling faces

Fighting for surrender

For now and the after

Just look around and you'll see that people

Are scared to say how they really feel, oh

We all need a little honesty


You are loved

If your heart's in a thousand pieces

If you're lost and you're far from reason

Just look up, know you are loved

Just look up, and know you are loved

When it feels like somethings missing

If it hurts but you can't find healing

Just look up, know you are loved

Just look up, know you are loved. ooh


We're not made to be superheroes,

Photoshopped, all size zeroes

We're a light not expected

But not quite perfected yet.

Look up see the sun is shining

There's hope on a new horizon

Calling you, calling...


You dont have to prove yourself

Dont try to be someone else

I saw this ad from a suicide prevention team. It was quite simple, only two words:

“I’m fine.”

However, when you looked at the words upside down, it spelled out “Save Me.” I’ve heard it’s become a popular tattoo. People use it to be real with others.

“How you doing?” “I’m fine.”

Has that been the start of a recent conversation you’ve had? You found yourself mindlessly saying those words, but in reality, you would have rather been honest about the emotional turmoil from your child, or the deep uncertainty from your job, or the washer/dryer/car/garage door opener that all need fixed and you’re looking at $152 to last until payday. Which is two weeks away.

Connecting honestly to another believer results in a balm that soothes our aching emotions. When done it gives off warmth. That warmth usually goes deep because it often takes the form of a prayer. The prayer then points out how much others are concerned for you, and ultimately how much God loves you.

Feel loved. Be real with others.


When you’re going through life with what seems to be a big ol’ target on your back and the enemy and the world want to continually wound your worthiness, remember this bit of wisdom that Beth Moore points out in her book “Believing God:”

Perhaps the most concentrated assessment of who we are in New Testament Scripture is found in Ephesians 1:3–8 (HCSB):

Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavens, in Christ; for He chose us in Him, before the foundation of the world, to be holy and blameless in His sight. In love He predestined us to be adopted through Jesus Christ for Himself, according to His favor and will, to the praise of His glorious grace that He favored us with in the Beloved. In Him we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of our trespasses, according to the riches of His grace that He lavished on us with all wisdom and understanding.

If we knew nothing else the New Testament had to say about us but accepted these few truths into our belief system, our lives would be altered.

In Love
