Be Your Song

People say that music is a universal language
So I like to think that a song isn’t always necessarily a
Musical composition with
Rhythm and lyrics and beats.
Your song might be your story;
The life you live
The things you say
The examples you give.
Now you may not know that someone’s looking up to you
But just incase,
Let your song be edifying.

Let your life echo the words that Jesus sang over you when He said:
You are the light of the world,
A city set on a hill cannot be hidden.
The gifts God blessed you with should not be hidden
Because you were blessed to bless someone else
So let your song be beautiful.
Let people in the dark see your light.
Light that radiates not only when your situation is all right,
But also when despite the light all you see, is darkness.
But you have been called out of the darkness into His marvellous light
So He always gets you through,
because He knows the plans He has for you.
So for the people in the dark who wonder about the source of your light,
Let your song be heavenly.

There’s always gonna be someone who is, you might think, “better.”
But if your life is a song it only makes perfect sense that it should reflect you. So, trying to be someone else..
I mean, at the end of the day
They’re singing their own song.
So all you’ll really be making is a parody
And yeah I say parody cos it’s funny
It’s a funny way of showing God you appreciate the life He gave you.
The Bible says be fruitful and multiply
But if all you’re doing is subtracting,
Trying to transform yourself into someone else,
Feeling you have to accomplish the exact same things that they’ve done,
Then what was the purpose of your creation?
You were born unique so don’t die as a version of someone else.
Stop trying to adapt your song into a melody that’s pleasing to everyone.
Personality one today, three tomorrow
Saving personality two for next week.
And just in case these adaptations of yourself don’t work out and you finally accept the original,
Let your song be you.
