“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 […]
First verse: “Tomorrow she’ll be turning 17. But somehow now the mirror has become her enemy. Feeling like she’ll never measure up. Feeling like she’ll never be enough. Chorus: But in her Father’s eyes, He’s taken by her beauty. And captivated by her every time. In her Father’s eyes, He’s longing just to tell her, she’s never been more lovely in her life. If only she could see herself one time, in her Father’s eyes.”
As a girl who can relate to this, the first verse hits home for me. Have you ever felt as though you’d never measure up or be enough? We all have at one point or another. But in God’s eyes, you’re beautiful and God is captivated by you. He loves you more than anyone else and He is longing to tell you how He sees you and that you’ve never been more amazing than you are, right here, right now. Even in the times when you feel like giving up, God will bring you through it. When you look at yourself in the mirror and don’t see anything or anyone worthwhile, never believe that lie, because you are more than worth it to your Father in Heaven.
Everyone has felt like giving up in life. There isn’t anyone who hasn’t felt like they’ve wasted the best days of their life. If you’re thinking and afraid that you’ll never be the person you thought you’d be, tell yourself to rethink it and tell yourself that you can and that you will become the person you want to be. It is hard to feel so ashamed that you don’t want to try anymore. But don’t let that thought control your thinking every day. It’ll only bring you down. You can become anyone you want to be in this life. Don’t let your fear stop you. In your Father’s eyes, you are the son/daughter of The King of Kings. He values your life. You’re a son and daughter of the most High. There is so much more left in your story. Tell God how you feel about everything and anything in your lie. Confide in Him about your fears and then ask Him to help you conquer those fears. Then surrender those feelings to Him. Whether it is feelings of failure, pain, sorrow, or fear or even, anger at yourself, you can and will rise above it. There is nothing He won’t bring you through.
Bridge: “So, no matter where you are. And no matter what you’ve done. You’re not alone. You’re not alone. And no matter where you’ve been. And no matter where you run. Come back home. Come back home.”
Remember that nothing you’ve done is too bad for Gods to forgive you for. There is also nothing He can’t bring you through. If God brings you to it, then He will bring you through it.
[Chorus]”Because in your Father’s eyes, you’re loved with such abandon. He’s running to you now arms open wide. In your Father’s eyes, you’re safe and you’re accepted. There’s nothing you can do to change His mind. If only you could see yourself one time. If only you could see yourself one time. In your Father’s eyes. In your Father’s eyes.”
God loves you so much that all He wants is a relationship with you. The lyrics bring into our minds the story, about the prodigal son in Luke 15:17-22. When the son finally came to his senses, he went to his father to beg for forgiveness. While he was still a long way off his father saw him, and ran to him with arms open wide and embraced him. There is nothing He wouldn’t accept you for, and there is nothing He wouldn’t do to have you as His child. You are always worth everything in your Father’s eyes.
