Live Like You're Loved

I don't know about you but there are times that although I know
 in my head & heart that I'm loved by God, I don't feel loved. 
That I fail more often than I succeed. 
That I am not enough. 
Not kind enough, giving enough, forgiving enough. Enough.
That I don't do enough for Him. 
That I simply fail to measure up. 

I came across this video late last week and it so spoke to me!
I absolutely love the message behind this song & it's such a beautiful reminder
that His love for me isn't based on how good I am (thank goodness!)
but on how good HE is. 





And I loved watching this video that explained the story behind the song!



You're not the only one who feels like this
Feelin' like you lose more than you win
Like life is just an endless hill you climb
You try and try, but never arrive

I'm tellin' you somethin'
This racing, this running
Oh, you're working way too hard! (You're working way too hard)
And this perfection you're chasing
Is just energy wasted
Cause he love's you like you are!

So go ahead and live like you're loved
It's ok to act like you've been set free
His love has made you more than enough
So go ahead and be who he made you to be

And live like you're loved
Live like you're loved
Live like you're loved
Live like you're loved

And live like you're know you're valuable
Like you know the one that hold your soul
Cause mercy has called you by your name
Don't be afraid to live in that grace

I'm tellin' you somethin'
This God we believe in
Yeah, he changed everything
No more guilt! No more shame!
He took all that away
Gave us a reason to sing

So go ahead and live like you're loved
It's ok to act like you've been set free
His love has made you more than enough
So go ahead and be who he made you to be

And live like you're loved
Live like you're loved
Live like you're loved
Live like you're loved

Live like you're loved, walk like you're free
Stand like you know, who he made you to be
Live like you're loved, like you believe
His love is all, that you'll ever need

So go ahead and live like you're loved
His love has made you more than enough

So go ahead and live like you're loved
It's ok to act like you've been set free
His love has made you more than enough
So go ahead and be who he made you to be

And live like you're loved
Live like you're loved
Live like you're loved
Live like you're loved

Live like you're loved, walk like you're free
Stand like you know, who he made you to be
Live like you're loved, like you believe
His love is all, that you'll ever need
Live like you're loved!

  1. We are so loved...unconditionally and completely!! What a blessing that we take for granted and, at times, forget. Beautiful message, beautiful song. We are not perfect, but a work in progress that shall continue until we see Him face to face!

  2. Thank you for sharing the story behind. This was the song I chose for 2017 for myself. But it will take eternity for me to fully comprehend His love!
