“Life is an uphill battle. But it’s our choice whether or not we make it up the mountain. We can choose to give up or keep climbing to see the view at the top. The view is almost always worth the climb.”-Alexis Wohler. God put this saying on my heart when I was going through […]
The song “Because You Loved Me” by Celine Dion is a song that is adored by so many. She made this song a huge hit. It is about how anyone’s significant other, friend or even a family member helped shape someone into who they are. As the song says, “I’m everything I am, because you loved me”. But what many may not realize is that many interpret this song from a God fearing, Christian standpoint. That same line can be viewed as the way God loves every single one of us and helps us through our lives on a day to day basis. It can be sung to our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, that we are everything we are because He loves us. Look at all the times He stood by us, made us see the truth, and has brought joy into our lives and all the wrongs that He makes right. The dreams He has put into our hearts and has helped us follow through into making them a reality. We can and should be forever thankful to Him for everything He has done in our lives. The lyrics are as follows:
Verse 1: “For all those times you stood by me. For all the truth that you made me see. For all the joy you brought to my life. For all the wrong that you made right. For every dream you made come true. For all the love I found in you. I’ll be forever thankful baby. You’re the one who held me up. Never let me fall. You’re the one who saw me through. Through it all.” As stated before this song can have both a Christian/ Godly view point and a worldly viewpoint. God has been there for us through every moment of our lives. He knew us before we were even a glimmer in our family’s eyes. He knew and knows us better than anyone. God is the one who truly helps us up when we fall, and He is the one who has seen us through storms that seemed impossible to get through.
Verse 2: “You gave me wings and made me fly. You touched my hand I could touch the sky. I lost my faith, you gave it back to me. You said no star was out of reach. You stood by me and I stood tall. I had your love I had it all. I’m grateful for each day you gave me. Maybe I don’t know that much. But I know this much is true. I was blessed because I was loved by you. Chorus: You were my strength when I was weak. You were my voice when I couldn’t speak. You were my eyes when I couldn’t see. You saw the best there was in me. Lifted me up when I couldn’t reach. You gave me faith ’cause you believed. I’m everything I am. Because you loved me.” God put pour dreams in our hearts and made us go for them. He even says in the Bible that nothing is impossible with him. When He stands by us, we stand tall. We are blessed every day to love our Lord and Savior and to be loved by Him. He could have very easily damned us all into hell, but instead He sent His son to die for us on the cross. God often puts us into uncomfortable situations to see how we react. When we lose our faith he gives it back to us. We should always be grateful for each day He gives us because we don’t know when our last day will be.
Bridge: “You were always there for me. The tender wind that carried me. A light in the dark shining your love into my life. You’ve been my inspiration. Through the lies you were the truth. My world is a better place because of you. Chorus: You were my strength when I was weak. You were my voice when I couldn’t speak. You were my eyes when I couldn’t see. You saw the best there was in me. Lifted me up when I couldn’t reach. You gave me faith ’cause you believed. I’m everything I am. Because you loved me.” God is always there for us. He sends His Holy Spirit and Jesus as the tender wind to carry us through hard times and to give us guidance. He always sees the best in us and through the worldly lies, He is the truth. Our lives are truly amazing, because of Him. When we can’t see He shows us the right path to take.
Chorus: “You were my strength when I was weak. You were my voice when I couldn’t speak. You were my eyes when I couldn’t see. You saw the best there was in me. Lifted me up when I couldn’t reach. You gave me faith ’cause you believed. I’m everything I am. Because you loved me. I’m everything I am. Because you loved me.” When our strength is all but gone, we can rely on God for help. He is the one that gives us the strength to go on. No matter what we may be facing. God believes in us and strengthen our own ability to believe in ourselves.
