Denise from Denise in Bloom has compiled an amazing list, complete with Scripture, that you can print out and review often. I don’t know about you, but my souls forgets easily!
Now for some Heart Notes:
Free to Be Me, by Francesca Battistelli
Free to Be Me
At twenty years of age
I’m still looking for a dream
A war’s 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 would turn out right
And I’d make it here somehow
But things don’t always come that easy
And sometimes I would doubt, oh

CHORUS

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, oh
And it’s easy to believe even though

CHORUS


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 and You’re free to be You

And some bonus notes! An amazing reader suggested this:
I Am New, by Jason Gray
Thank you, Susan! 
I Am New
Now I won’t deny
The worst you could say about me
But I’m not defined
By mistakes that I’ve made
Because God says of me

I am not who I was
I am being remade
I am new
I am chosen and holy
And I’m dearly loved

I am new

Who I thought I was
And who I thought I had to be
I had to give them both up
Cause neither were willing
To ever believe

CHORUS

Too long I have lived
In the shadows of shame
Believing that there
Was no way I could change
But the one who is making everything new
Doesn’t see me the way that I do
He doesn’t see me the way that I do

CHORUS

I am not who I was
I am being remade I am new
Dead to the old man,I’m coming alive
I am new

Forgiven beloved
Hidden in Christ
Made in the image of the Giver of Life
Righteous and holy
Reborn and remade
Accepted and worthy, this is our new name

This is who we are now…

 My Eucharisteo:
Two days of school behind us
Women who encourage me
A husband who cleans
Kids who crack me up
Chicken stew that turned out yummy
Painting
Good schooling materials
Hearing Anthony babble
Shalom!
How is your heart? Where are you at with embracing Who God is and who you are? How can I pray for you? Let’s chat!

  1. Two great songs, Mandy! Glad I could connect you to Jason Gray. I’ve had that song in my head all day!

    btw if you’re inclined to run, that’s a good song to put in the playlist!

  2. I love both of those songs! And Susan knows her music…she’s given me many gems :)
