Ever Feel Like a Monster?





I saw this band Skillet for the first time the other night. I could really identify with their song Monster (video and lyrics below). If you're anything like me, there are parts of yourself that you don't share with many - if any - other people. Thoughts, feelings and emotions that you keep locked up inside of yourself usually because you're afraid to trust anyone with what is the deepest, and often darkest, parts of you.

No matter how tightly we keep the secrets of our hearts and minds locked away from other people, there is One who knows our every thought before we even think it... and He still loves us in spite of all that we are or all that we fail to be.

God knows your heart

The Lord is watching everywhere, keeping his eye on both the evil and the good. (Proverbs 15:3 NLT)

But here is the awesome part: He still loves you, NO MATTER WHAT!

And for that I will always praise Him!

Are you ready to accept the unconditional love of a forgiving Savior?

Monster
By Gavin Brown and John Landrum Cooper

The secret side of me, I never let you see
I keep it caged but I can't control it
So stay away from me, the beast is ugly
I feel the rage and I just can't hold it

It's scratching on the walls, in the closet, in the halls
It comes awake and I can't control it
Hiding under the bed, in my body, in my head
Why won't somebody come and save me from this, make it end?

I feel it deep within, it's just beneath the skin
I must confess that I feel like a monster
I hate what I've become, the nightmare's just begun
I must confess that I feel like a monster

I, I feel like a monster
I, I feel like a monster

My secret side I keep hid under lock and key
I keep it caged but I can't control it
'Cause if I let him out he'll tear me up, break me down
Why won't somebody come and save me from this, make it end?

I feel it deep within, it's just beneath the skin
I must confess that I feel like a monster
I hate what I've become, the nightmare's just begun
I must confess that I feel like a monster

I feel it deep within, it's just beneath the skin
I must confess that I feel like a monster
I, I feel like a monster
I, I feel like a monster

It's hiding in the dark, it's teeth are razor sharp
There's no escape for me, it wants my soul, it wants my heart
No one can hear me scream, maybe it's just a dream
Maybe it's inside of me, stop this monster

I feel it deep within, it's just beneath the skin
I must confess that I feel like a monster
I hate what I've become, the nightmare's just begun
I must confess that I feel like a monster

I feel it deep within, it's just beneath the skin
I must confess that I feel like a monster
I've gotta lose control, he something radical
I must confess that I feel like a monster

I, I feel like a monster
I, I feel like a monster
I, I feel like a monster
I, I feel like a monster

I really wanted to go see Skillet, but was not able to. I'm so glad you had a good time. And the words to that song - well that says it all, doesn't it.

I am amazed that the God who hung the stars in the sky knows me so well and STILL loves me so much! May we never get over that FACT! And you're looking lovely today ;o)
