I've always been fond of this song, mostly because it's so catchy. But listening to the lyrics made me realized that I could identify with its meaning so much. Before I even really thought too much about it, I envisioned a girl yelling at a wall that she couldn't get through. I wasn't quite sure why I saw that... so I thought it was cheesy, doubted myself, and put it off for later.
Fear of failure has been a huge wall in my life that I run away from. I have a deep desire to be used & valued but my insecurities often keep me from commiting.
Weeks after I'd chosen this song, I've been freed by the knowledge that God is strongest for me in my weakness. I don't need to be perfect for Him to love & value me. I don't need to be perfect for Him to use me as I am & to be light to the hearts of men. That image I had in my head so perfectly fit what I was about to see in the very near future.
So this is a declaration that I'm facing that wall. And I'm letting it fall down, brick by brick.
And here is my piece:
