Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice! Let your gentleness be evident to all. The Lord is near. Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.

There's so much more about you
that you never let them see
You turn away
But not to Me
And I know how they tried to take you
Held you up and meant to break you down
But you can't be
For so long I tried to reach you
I know I'm almost there
I'm close enough for you to see
You've been hiding in the shadows
Have you forgotten how we used to dream
Let me remind you
The light doesn't blind you at all
It just helps you see
Can you see
You have become
You have become beautiful
- become - googoodolls -
- This song came to my mind last week.
Last summer on the airplane to Minnesota, while skipping through several albums they had,
I listened to this song and it struck me.
And even though I didn't buy the album, I didn't forget the lyrics.
It's not a christian song, but I believe Jesus wants to tell me (us) the same:
DON'T HIDE from me,
DON'T be scared to come into the light...
You know light helps you see,
Which is positive, but not always appealing, because
standing in the light of Jesus will make really clear all your deeds, thoughts, faith and unbelief.
But He sais:
Come close, don't be afraid, because I am the Light, and I won't hurt you, I want to open your eyes, I want to give you LIFE.
I want you to get OUT of this world that is breaking you, and invite you into Mine.
I want to open your eyes and show you who you really are.
I try to reach you, please don't hide in the shadow, let me come closer,
I'll enlighten you and free you, but first you got to open up.
Come into the light.
