This week’s song is special to me because it speaks my truth.  It’s kind of a follow up to last week’s song “Hear My Call” by Jill ScottI shared that song because I have definitely been where Jill Scott was in that song.  More times than I’d like to admit, I have cried out to God for help because I just felt so confused.  The good part about those raw, vulnerable moments is that God does hear our call and He does answer.  When you open yourself up enough to receive and listen, you will get your answer.

That is what today’s song is about.  Anytime I feel lost and confused, or I get distracted from my truth, I get beautiful reminders of who I really am and what I’m doing here on this earth.  Those reminders help me to get focused and clear, causing frustration and negativity to instantly dissipate.  This song is a perfect example of one of my beautiful reminders.

“I wanna say

I lived each day

Until I die

And know that I

Meant something in

Somebody’s life

The hearts I have touched

Will be the proof that I leave

That I made a difference

And this world will see

I was here

I lived, I loved

I was here

**I personally want

to be able to say >>

I did, I’ve done

Everything that I wanted

And it was more than I thought it would be

I will leave my mark

So everyone will know

I was here

I just want them to know

That I gave my all, did my best

Brought someone some happiness

Left this world a little better

Just because

I was here.”

So the next time life gets hard and you feel lost, let these lyrics inspire you to make every single day special and purposeful.  No matter what is going on in your life, when you keep the big picture in mind, it brings everything back into perspective and alleviates the pain.  Don’t let life’s hangups stop you from leaving your mark on this world.
