Beautiful, Beautiful by Francesca Batistelli is one of my favorite songs, at the moment because I feel that the words are ringing true in my life. Right now, to the rest of the world, it may seem like my life is falling apart. But in my eyes, heart and mind, I know that I am finally allowing God to truly put it together. I have made many mistakes in my short life, I will never deny that. But some of my greatest mistakes have been in not listening to that “still small voice inside” of me.
I chose to ignore the warning signs, I chose to ignore the thoughts in my head, the feelings deep down within my soul, and even the ache in my heart. I had so many opportunities to set myself free from these situations before it got too late, but I let pride get in the way. Pride not only comes before the fall, pride can get in the way of your blessing. I let pride keep me from experiencing the life that God wanted for me, I didn’t want to admit to the world that I had made a mistake. Saving face became more important to me than my actual happiness, health and security.
I am moving forward with my life, and am allowing God to take to me to the places he has always wanted to take me to. I am allowing the blessings to be released in my life. I am allowing happiness and peace to creep into the place where only sadness,disapointment and resentment have lurked. I choose to LEAD my heart, rather than FOLLOW it.
I am excited to see where this Beautiful, Beautiful Life takes me.
