One of my favorite songs, which I can somehow relate to my journey as a Christian is this hit by Daughtry:
Let me lead you to how I see the lyrics of this song:
I’m staring out into the night,
Trying to hide the pain.
I’m going to the place where love
And feeling good don’t ever cost a thing.
And the pain you feel’s a different kind of pain.
Life really has some challenges along the way. And when you feel some kind of exhaustion, there’s not other place you could go back to – no blame on how you’ve been and on whether you fail or otherwise.
Well I’m going home,
Back to the place where I belong,
And where your love has always been enough for me.
I’m not running from.
No, I think you got me all wrong.
I don’t regret this life I chose for me.
But these places and these faces are getting old,
So I’m going home.
Well I’m going home.
Going back to those Arms, you never lose. And all opposition around you may wonder, “Why the vulnerability?” But then again, it’s when you recognize that you can’t go on all alone, after looking for contentment on everything else, that you find strength from the One never-ending source of it.
The miles are getting longer, it seems,
The closer I get to you.
I’ve not always been the best man or friend for you.
But your love remains true.
And I don’t know why.
You always seem to give me another try.
And we always fail him; I always do – in decisions, in actions, with the way I live out my faith… But then again, all my wrongs are never accounted for. If there would be another word for love, that would be His name, for He is love.
Not too much substance on this entry. All the things I want to say on how my relationship with God is and how He loves me despite everything is beyond words.
