'I'm Free To Be Me...and You're Free To Be You'

At twenty years of age
I'm still looking for a dream
A war is already waged for my destiny
But You've already won the battle
And You've got great plans for me
Though I can't always see, 'cause...

I got a couple dents in my fender
Got a couple rips in my jeans
Try to fit the pieces together
But perfection is my enemy
And on my own I'm so clumsy
But on Your shoulders I can see
I'm free to be me

When I was just a girl
I thought I had it figured out
See my life will turn out right
And I'll make it here somehow
But things don't always come that easy
And sometimes I would doubt, 'cause...

And you're free to be you

Sometimes I believe
That I can do anything
Yet other times I think
I've got nothing good to bring

But You look at my heart and you tell me
That I've got all You seek
And it's easy to believe, even though...

And you're free to be you

-Free To Be Me-Francesca Battistelli (Yes, another one)

So, look at these lyrics. We all have a couple dents in our fenders and rips in our jeans...and lets face it, perfection is our enemy. On our own we are clumsy (even though we like to think otherwise), but on His sholders we can see we are free to be ourselves.

God didn't make us robots, we are free to be ourselves. It is because of this freedom that we have dents in our fenders. But if we didn't, we'd be robots, and God didn't want that! He wanted us to be FREE.
