Imagine Me

Imagine me loving what I see; When the mirror looks at me

 'Cause I, I imagine me; In a place of no insecurities

And I'm finally happy; 'Cause I imagine me

Letting go of all of the ones who hurt me; 'Cause they never did deserve me

Can You imagine me?; Saying no to thoughts that try to control me

Remembering all You told me; Lord, can You imagine me?

Over what my mamma said; And healed from what my daddy did

And I wanna live; And not read that page again

Imagine me; Being free, trusting You totally

Finally I can imagine me; I admit it was hard to see You being in love

With someone like me; Finally I can imagine me

Being strong and not letting people break me down; You won't get that joy this time around

Can You imagine me?; In a world where nobody has to live afraid

Because of Your love, fear's gone away; Can You imagine me?

Letting go of the past; And glad I have another chance

And my heart will dance; 'Cause I don't have to read that page again

Imagine me, being free, trusting You totally; Finally I can imagine me

Many of us have heard this song, before but I have never taken the time to pay attention to the words and see how it relates to my life. Recently, a good friend played the song and paused it every now and then and asked me, and a few others, to reflect on the message. I realized I was constantly struggling and trying to overcome many of the things mentioned in this song.

Holding on to all of those things will only cause the hurt and pain to linger. So the best thing to do is to have faith and trust that God will take care of your needs. The Bible encourages us to seek God’s kingdom first, and his righteousness, and all these other things will be added to us (Matthew 6:33). One of my favorite scriptures is Philippians 4: 6, 7 where it says do not be anxious over anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication along with thanksgiving let your petitions be made known to God; and the peace of God that excels all thought will guard your hearts and your mental powers by means of Christ Jesus.

My goal is to be aware of when those issues arise and imagine myself letting it go and trusting in God so that I can fully achieve freeness of mind.
