Still that girl Maybe…..?

Come March 31st I will be turning 22 or is it 23? That is a lot keeping in mind that others died when they were just a day old. I am one of the luckiest people in this world, mum died when I was a baby just months old, but am here now turning 22. God is great! I have looked back at my life and I have come to a realization that everything that happened to me at any stage of my life has contributed to who I am today, how I respond to things and everything else that I do especially my emotional formation.

The thing with life is that you do not choose what happens or what experiences to go through, you got to take it as it comes and accept that that is the way the author of your life wants it to be. There are many times especially recently that i have asked God why did my life turn out the way it did? Why didn’t it turn out the way other peoples lives did? But through all this I have learnt that God knows what He is doing, the other people I was thinking of also have unique struggles and experiences. I am me, God created me in a very special and different way for a reason. He is God and He sure does know what He is doing.

Sho Baraka, in his song My Life (Nice aim) he says “Its my life, aint no way I can change it at all even if I tried/
That’s why I try, to go and tear the wall down let you all get a peak inside/
But once you’re inside, I guarantee you wont like everything that you’ll find/
But what you’ll find, is the grace of the LORD, cuz His hands all over my life/
It’s my life”  that says it all , we can’t change our lives, our past we can’t go back and change it but we can change the future, we can work and embrace the present even when it is so hurtful and so much not clear. We gat to stop and think that maybe just maybe we are at a place that God wants us to be, we are still having our story written the end is far from being written.

Sometimes we gat to go through the fire to be beautiful just like gold does, When we are in the furnace that’s when He is strong. That’s when He shines, He whispers and “says I gat this really, I am in control”  all we need to do is trust Him and let go knowing the hurting is not for a lifetime there is a new day coming.

Dreams, they come
Plans, they change
Yea, we’re gonna break
Yea, we’re gonna break
Things we face make us who we are
Baby you’re a star shining in the dark
Let’s go back to the summer, summer when
We dreamed in love, let’s go back again
Let’s go back again
Yea, back again, my friend
To the summer when…
I’m holding a picture from seven years back
I smile at the memory, it’s smiling right back at me, and I see
Brown hair and bright eyes, such a beautiful blue
A heart full of laughter with nothing to lose
That’s how I remember you

You were young, you were free
And you dared to believe
You could be the girl
Who could change the world
Then your life took a turn
And you fell, and it hurt
But you’re still that girl
And you’re gonna change this world
Woh oh oh oh oh oh
You’re still that girl
You’re still that girl
Woh oh oh oh oh oh
You’re still that girl
You’re still that girl

Sometimes life don’t go the way you planned
And we all have days when we just don’t understand
Searching for meaning, it’s not always easy
But your story’s not over, it’s still being told
Your sunrise is coming brighter than gold
Let’s go back again
To the summer when

You were young, you were free
And you dared to believe
You could be the girl
Who could change the world
Then your life took a turn
And you fell, and it hurt
But you’re still that girl
And you’re gonna change this world
Woh oh oh oh oh oh
You’re still that girl
You’re still that girl
Woh oh oh oh oh oh
You’re still that girl
You’re still that girl

What if the picture is bigger than you see?
And God has you right where he wants you to be
Just listen to your heart
He’s telling you with every beat
[x3:] You’re still that girl

You were young you were free
And you dared to believe
You could be the girl
Who could change the world
Then your life took a turn
Don’t you know?
Don’t you see?
All you need is to believe
But you’re still that girl
And you’re gonna change this world
Woh oh oh oh oh oh
You’re still that girl
You’re still that girl
Woh oh oh oh oh oh
You’re still that girl
You’re still that girl

I see it in your eyes
I see it in your smile
You’re still that girl
You’re still that girl
