The Truth About Me – MANDISA

Mandisa was an American Idol top-ten finalist a couple of years ago. She struggled with her weight and eventually managed to lose a phenomenal 90 pounds. I just listened to her 2011 album this week and her songs have been what i need to sing, to breathe, to think about, to whisper, to pray. I so need to believe the Truth that God speaks about me.

Enjoy two of her videos and lyrics.

If only I could see me as You see me
And understand the way that I am loved
Would it give a whole new meaning to my purpose?
Change the way I see the world

Would I sparkle like a star in the night sky?
Would I give a little more instead of take?
If I understood I’m precious like a diamond
Of a worth no one could estimate
I’m a worth no one could estimate

You say lovely, I say broken
I say guilty, You say forgiven
I feel lonely, You say You’re with me
We both know it would change everything
If only I believed the truth about me

I wish I could hold on to the moments
When my life is spinning but I’m peaceful still
Like a wind You whisper into silence
And tell me things this world never will
You tell me things this world never will

You say lovely, I say broken
I say guilty, You say forgiven
Oh, I feel lonely, You say You’re with me
We both know it would change everything
If only I believed the truth about me

I would sleep better at night
Wake up with hope for another day
I would love even if it cost me
Take a chance and know I’m gonna be okay
I would dare to give my life away

Oh, I feel lonely, You say You’re with me
We both know it would change everything
If only I believed, if only I believed the truth about me.
